I have never snared hare before but seen some posts about it here so I thought I would ask. I had always thought that trapping was only for the skins. I have not tried to use any of the skins from the hare we have shot but we love the meat. we make bunny jerky and bunny burger and other dishes quite a bit. so here are my questions...
where can I find snares to use for hares?
how do I place them? just look for tracks and place them there?
as a hunter I was always taught to clean the animal as soon after killing them as possible, but if I am snaring them I would imagine that you set the snares and check them the next morning? wouldn't the animal be frozen by then? does that hurt the meat? do just thaw them out and clean as I would normally?
any help is appreciated?
