Caught a yote in a snare yesterday, puppy on a leash....
Makes that whole aiming thing a bit easier.
No pics of it?
Hey post up spme pics of your home made snares too!
I'll try in a day or so, yote's hanging from the fenceline now - a tail, but the snares are easy to make, they're just dangerous to other critters, so I don't like to use them where the goats could get to them. I don't know how long that puppy had been snared up but he ruined the cable by bending it all up from tugging at it and had it been another hour or so I suspect he'd have pulled up the 3 1/2 feet of rebar I had him staked to...
Are you using 80 lb fishing line or actual cable wire? I have been doing some research and it looks like the wire kits to hang pictures are a decent wire to use. I have a problem with rabbits coming through my yard and eating my landscaping. Neighbors have been getting a little upset seeing me running through the front yard with either the bow or the pellet gun. lol
For the yotes I used 1/8" steel cable, I was gonna post a pick today after I repaired the one that the yote bent up but forgot, it'd be a bit simpler for bunnies I suppose...
Ok, I went to Home Depot and found 1/16" cable and ferrols. It is about .18 cents a foot for the cable and the ferrole was about a buck. I will post up some pics tomorrow after I make a few. The snares I am making are for rabbits and not for anything bigger than that.
Ok here are pictures of what I came up with. Let me know what you think of them........
You might want to look around on the introweb and see what size hole you'll want to try and be rabbit specific and not snare a cat or anything not wanted...
Not an issue, it is inside my yard and cats don't live very long here due to the yotes! The only cat in my neighborhood is mine that is an indoor beast.
No cat would be stupid enough to get caught up in that freakin' winch cable you're using for snare wire!
How did I know you would be in here? Bagged two cotton tails this evening with the 20 gauge while out hunting quail.
Send me your address, and I'll send you one of the snares I use for coyotes, bobcats, and anything else that shows up.
Oh, and they are expendable. You'll get to re-use the brake and swivel, but they destroy the cable once caught.
Thanks Jimbo pm sent!
Do you have deer in the same area? If so you may want to put deer stops on your snares.
If not please take video of you removing the deer from the snare
No deer here.... But I'll try and get a snap shot of the next yote....
Hmmm you have to realize that at some point must sinch and bind and not release to actually snare...?Maybe I just dont see what yer doing....
Sorry I didn't explain better. In the top picture on the left side is the snare it's self. It is a ferrol that is made into a self locking/tighting snare. At the very end of the wire there is a stop and the ferrol is not crimped so the wire can move through it to tighten. The bend at the ferrol is soo tight it does not release with out some assistance. The object on the right in the picture is just a loop to attatch it to a spike so the pesky peter cotton tail can't get away.
Ahhh ok thats what I thought but wasn't sure...Nice...
