I have used snares since 1964. I trap a very large area here in idaho. I set welll over 300 snares and have a great deal of experence. I use and will continue to use 1/16 1x19 cable with dispatch springs. I trap and snare well over fifty coyotes a year, right out the door of my cabin. My goal is not to have any,none,nada mooseelk, or deer running around with cable on their legs. I catch alot of different critters in traps,and snares. I can accept a loss of some animals if it means missing a few. What I need to know is what is the lightest baw that will hold most coyotes. I set most snares in very(I stress very) heavy brush,and jack pine stands. Many times I crawl into the thick stuff on hands the knees because I gang set, so I cover ever hole.
