I've been snaring since, I was about seven years old .At age eight the Ohio game warden caught me snaring ringneck pheasants with homemade snares made out of monofilament. He read me and my mother the riot act,however it never deterred me and I continued .Anyway the only snares, I use are made by Thompson snares, for coyotes I use a 1XX 120 inches in length with tree locks. The snares are rusted loaded and soaked in mineral oil.I use a 12 inch loop circular ,and place it 12 inches off the ground I've tried other snares but in my opinion Thompson is best. I could post here easily hundred of snared coyotes, I'll post a few here and there. I'd rather shoot em though but snaring in areas where you can't shoot is a bonus. I use a number 1, 5/64 cable for coyotes,kills are at about 95%. a smarter coyote will lay down when the snare tightens and survive, till I find them.What kind of snares do you use ? Are they cam locks , micro locks ect. ? Do you use quick kill springs on your snares ? just wondering .
They work pretty good. I follow coyotes in the snow and mark the trails they use, they'll always come back using the same, that's where I slay em big time.What kind of snares do you use ? Are they cam locks , micro locks ect. ? Do you use quick kill springs on your snares ? just wondering .
