I love using snares but they only last for 1 catch. How can I make them last on coon beaver fox and coyote

You cant. One shot deal with snares. However you can keep the hardware and create another snare very easily.

Very true how ever for myself one catch with the snare and I fire everything in the garbage after including hardware. I use camloc on my snares and there is really know way to determine if the rivet connecting the cam to the body is 100%, so I don't take chances reusing the locks. Just my way :wink:

I dont blame you or think it weird you operate that way Rob. If I had wolves in my area Id be the same way, and then that habit would flow over to all my catches just like yours has. Makes good sense to me. The biggest thing we even have here is coyote, and so far my yotes have all been dispatched very quickly in the snares so for us its not as important. With any little inclination of wear they hit the trash though. Our cats or fox dont put up much of a fight at allso they last better with them. I will agree that starting completely over each time would be the safest thing to do.

I re-use the parts and use the cable to make cable stakes or extensions.

I will vouch for you being strange Wolf. I could sure use those "used" camlocks on these feral hogs down here. But the real strange thing is that for the two visits up north, you served me breakfast every morning but you never ate....very strange. But don't this as a complaint, just in case I ever visit again. :roll: :lol: :lol:

This wont save every snare of course. But you can put a midline swivel in. Then you can usually re-use at least part of the snare. This also reduces the risk of a Yote or Coon breaking the cable.
