With the season pretty much over, I thought I'd gather a few opinions so I can start thinking about next year! I'm exclusively setting snares for fox and coyote.
1.) How big are your bait piles? Any favorite things to throw on them? Do you end up needing to add to the pile as the season progresses? Are they out in the open or in the really thick stuff? I raise chickens every year and am thinking about saving and freezing their carcasses and guts for bait...
2.) Anyone use lure? Any success or is it simply a good way to spend money? I'm doing nothing but snares, so I'm wondering if lure
a fair distance away from my nearest snare would get them coming in on their normal trails to check it out (and hopefully get caught).
3.) Whammies or not? This year for support I simply used some galvanized wire I dyed, and wrapped it from a branch, around the snare wire, up to the loop.
Thanks for the input and I hope everyone's season was successful!
