    Wire snare traps are really easy to make and very efficient in areas with a lot of rabbits and similar rodents. All you really need is wire, a pike and sticks and foliage from around.

    As you can see the wire is bolted to the ground to create a force of resistance, to get the noose to close down as the animal tries to flee. Alternatively the wire can be tied to a nearby tree, if you don't feel like carrying too many bolts or pikes arounds.

    Some people like to use a hinge instead of tying a noose, which is more efficient as a strangulating trap, but also more likely to be destroyed. Like this one:

    Notice that around the noose, the hunter has placed foliage to create a little "guided passage" to coerce the animal to pass through.

    A good strategy is to observe where the rabbits usually go snooping around and placing your traps carefully, on paths that they will most often use. Like say a hole in your garden fence, etc.

    I don't like the locking snares, I think these are the reason snaring got banned here. I like to use brass wire that does not strangle. Set on a burrow the rabbit is still alive down the burrow waiting to be picked up & out of sight of predators.

    I am very interested in this kind of setup because I like to bleed out the animal immediately after death.

    Could you please point me in the right direction for learning how to set this type of trap? I am totally inexperienced in setting snares...a real newbie.

    I think this is all I have of my own work on snares Grizz, but I have got more info on other traps. I also have more on a predator snare.
    Regards, Keith.

    You can practice snaring rats. I like spring snare traps for them. It is all a matter of scale from rats to deer. adjust your wire size and the height of the loops for the size critter that you are snaring. I have snare wire from light brass through 1/8 aircraft cable. Cable locks are needed on some of the stiffer cables because they will loosen if given slack and let the prey back out. Snares here are used for coyotes, raccoons, possums, and nutria. Another use for the locks is when you are fur trapping you don't care about killing them since you are not eating them. You also might look into body hold traps. I have several of conibear body hold traps and they work really well.

    You can buy those here in hardware stores. Most also sell made cable snares in several sizes.
