    Default Snares

    I usually have good luck snaring fox with the bottom of the loop 8-10" off the ground and perpendicular to the expected travel route.

    Canines generally don't go for cubbies. Dirt/snow holes are good. Pee posts. Drive your ATV thru some grass or low willows, or your snogo after snow comes, and set snares in the trail. If the ground ain't too frozen, use stakes pounded into the ground to anchor traps or snares.
    Good luck.
