i havent set any snares out yet because we dont have any snow YET!! i usually wait for snow to come so i can see were their coming from and going to. Also then you can what it is so you know what size to put the snare. plus its easier because they are more looking for food.

how do you guys make your snares??? are they locking or not? i know here in ky they are illegal if they lock. I'm looking for a good way to make some snares that are effective.. (and by the way no luck for 2 more days...)

Does that mean you need to have a relaxing lock?

I've switched to dispatch snares for k9s this year and I absolutely love 'em, I use 5/64 cable for those. Beaver and coon I use 3/32 cable with a plain old washer lock. Seems to be doing the trick.

I guess I wouldn't call it a lock as you can release it even with a stick. but that may be the wordage.

first of all nice pics and congrats.
now since i am a complete newby i was just wondering how you make the washer locks or do you buy them? maybe you guys know a website i can look at to get some good instructions. I have some that use a lock that can easily be released but it will eliminate the animal immediately. thanks again for all the advice guys

there are many places you can buy snares. I got my first set from Cumberlands. Sullivans also has a very good selection of snares. The best place is the Snare Shop for sure. I bought bout 90% of my snares from them. (best deal and best quality :wink: )

Usually 100 traps and 50 snares for the first couple of months. Give or take a few. Right now I have about a dozen snares out :roll: . Need to work on that.

Cool pics fellas, specially them youngins gettin in on the fun 8)

We have a required class we have to take here in MO before we can use snares. Ran a waterline as a kid before fur went to hooey back in the 70's. I'll be takin the snare class this spring and gettin back into the fun in the fall. Cats are startin to get thick and my interest has been rekindled. Look forward to learnin a little from you folks. :wink:
