I asked a question a couple of days ago and NO response. I guess everyone just uses 14 guage wire for their drowner wire. I've seen aircraft cable being used. I would like some suggestions on what size and length everybody is using. And where to get it !!!!!!

I use 10 gage wire for slide wire. As for length, whatever it takes to get them to deep water. I purchase mine from Cumberlands Trap Supply out of Owatonna , Min.

It depends on what you want to drown. On my mink trasps i use extra long chains about 2 foot. Set your trap along bank in cubbie. Then about 1 foot off bank you put a stick sraight into the bottom. Make sure the stick is just below the surface of the water. When mink is caught he will dive in and try and get out of trap. thus he will tangle the trap in stick. and drown. This will work for coon and beaver. Also use extra chain on your 330 and 280's as this will let your beaver get deeper to drown.

I use 3/32 cable with a crunch proof swivel as my drowner.
