How to Properly Set a Rabbit & Hare Snare


How to Properly Set a Rabbit & Hare Snare

It’s good to learn survival skills before you need them, and this video should help with that. Snares are simple things, and you may think you can just set them on a well-used trail and catch yourself some supper. But as with all things, there are plenty of ways to get it wrong.

This trapper responds to an inquiry from another YouTuber who tried and failed to catch snowshoe hares using snares. This fellow tells us what mistakes were made, why they are bad, and how to do it right.

He even shows us a couple different ways to support these snares.

It’s great info to have, and I’ll surely be trying to recall it the next time I set out to snare some bunnies.
