I've never snared rabbits out on my line and I've decided to do it this year to just keep the bait coming in. With that said what size loop should I be using and how high off the ground?
I put a couple out on my line today that only open up to a 4" x 5" loops that are pigtailed to #11 wire that I wrapped around a willow. Not sure these snares may have been made for squirrels. I put the bottom of the loop about 4" or 5" from the ground. Put them in thick willows with heavy rabbit trails.
