Question by bryce wood. Uploaded on August 31, 2010
just like any other snare . what i would use is guitar string it already had a hole to run the wire through and the wire is tough . just take some sand paper and where it down a bit so it would be easier
I do not like to snare animals because a snare is not selective. It does not care if it is a cat, dog, rabbit or coon. Coons are easy to trap though because they have a thumb and will grab a piece of bait in their fist and will not let go. Using something like a piece of fried chicken drumstick for bait (which they dearly love) put in a reverse trigger trap, they trip it pulling the fist out. Check out how a "Coon Cuff" trap works or a "lil griz" coon trap. We have a problem with coons messing up the corn in our hog traps so a dozen of the homemade coon cuff type traps set around the hog traps controls the coons. As a bonus, we get five bucks apiece for the trapped coons form a local trapper.
I dont think snaring is legal but Im aint sure.but the way I find most effective is sportsmansguide.com/traps.
