How do rabbit snares work? Looks pretty simple; how do rabbits find themselves ensnared in such large loops?
A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions.

Nice work! I have always made my snares smaller. That must be the reason I don't have the success that you did. I'll try making the loop bigger from now on and see how I do. I have been making them about 4 inches round.

Nice videos. Thanks for posting them. Looks like dinner made it to the table that day.

Cheap, effective, easy to make, and easy to set up. Thanks again.

Hi, Thanks for the run of your trapline, Last week, I made six snairs. I used very thin stainless steel fishing leader wire. With the super flex this wire has, I was able to coil each one, to the size of a quater. without kinking, For storage in the gunstock of my survival marlin.

The snares work wheb the rabbit head gets in the noose while running, then when he feels it, he thinks its a predator and his natural reaction is to run, so he keeps running untill the noose chokes it to death.

It seems like it would be kinda' gross handling a cold dead rabbit. I'm not much of a survivalist I guess. Now where did I set that Frappuccino.......
