    rabbit snares

    Does anyone know the best place to get rabbit snares or the components to make them.

    My friends uncle owns a big field and said we can snare the rabbits. As they are making holes in the field and its not good for his horses

    Cheers

    I get mine from http://www.trapworks.co.uk/ Mat.
    Effortless.

    Less agro than making them if you don't mind paying out. Ian will always wave the home-made flag though, but he enjoys making them.

    As Paul said I do make my own Snares and use them also sell them to game keepers, the snares I make are 2" longer than the shop bought ones so they can be used on wire fences, I have found that the shop bought ones are not spun tightly enough and normally come with a poor piece of string.

    Have you used snares before Mat ? If not please make sure you check them frequently so as to inflict the least amount of suffering on the animal. You can use picture hanging wire and paracord

    When you come to one of our meets, Ian will show you how to make & set them.

    ...as well a few dead-fall and spear traps to sort out those pesky chav problems Ha!

    Ive not used snares but the person who owns the land imcgoing to be on has plenty of times.
    He said he is now to old to be out setting and checking them.
    But he said he will show me how its done.
    And I will only use the snares when staying on his land so will be able to check regular.


    Cheers
