Trapping

Recommended Posts

Guest smallgamehunter

I was taught how to make small game snares by a man that sells them online many years ago

 

I put together a how to movie a few years ago but I don't know where I put the DVD so I can upload it

 

Ofg gave u a pic of the most effective way I have seen squirrels snared u set out several and multiple catches isn't uncommon

Ive made snares from the wire in the cords of common appliances like toasters radios and lamps. the flat cords like your cheap extension cords.(just strip them down to the size snare you want)  I've snared a groundhog a ground squirrel and a squirrel (the squirrel using the same set up ofg diagrammed only I put 4 snares on the one pole) before I found out it was illegal to set snares without a license(furbearers I think)...or out of season  :whistle: hey, I was only 17  :P  id just strip the wire out and roll it like you do natural cordage and tie a small loop in the ends and pass one threw.  I never put a stick in it before setting it but I think that's a good idea.  as far as trapping, that's all the experience I have on the subject. good luck greene

U use a small stick or a match stick to make a loop on the wire end which u then run the opposite end of the wire thru to make your snare loop

Last night I read that if you put out a #2 foothold with peanut butter on the pan you can catch squirrels.

That's a big trap for a squirrel

I would say a 1 1/2 would kill a squirrel I think a 2 would squash it flat

I could see a #0 long spring used to kill squirrels

I got a #0 long spring back in 08 for $3 on ebay

 

I just recently found a #1 underspring trap at a local antique store for $5

I think I'm gonna try it a #0 long spring to see if it works

It would be nice to compare notes and see how we can help each other

if you do this I would recommend having it elevated ( like on a stump) to reduce the chance of catching a mouse.

I also have to have it elevated to reduce the chance of cat or dog catches
