Was that a Creedmoor or PRC snare?
Thompsons best i've used ,120 inches,1XX.I like to use 3/32 " 7x7 air craft cable some like 5/64 " . The shortest length that I use is 8 feet long ,so that a coyote has plenty to tangle up and chock themselves faster . You can buy the parts from a trapping supply house as well as buying premade snare's . O'Gorman , Minnesota trappers supply are a couple of places to look for books and or supplies .
Nice set up,will keep in mind.I sure like snaring and use a killpole wit it. 5ft 5/8 rebar for coyotes 1/2 rebar for beaver with big washer weld on. And about 30 inch #9 wire wrapped around 2 or 3 times. Hammer it in ground hook snare around rebar and thru washer. U dont have to tie anything off. U have snare support and anchor all in one .Plus if it's a good place leave rebar in place. For the yrs to come. U just need to bend the wire back. The one in picture is for beaver or coon.
