Re: cable size

Use 1x19's. Everything I caught in them this year you could barely even tell I caught something in it. Including the 26lb cat. It is all I run now. I have Fox chewing half thru 7x7's.

A lot of people do not do this and then think the animal is chewing on the cable.

Re: cable size

I was personally told by one of the most respected snaresmen in the country that you don't want to add an in-line swivel to a coyote snare because it will give them something to focus their chewing on.
Every otter snare he had built had an in-line swivel. None of his canine snares have them.

I still question his authority on it, but that is what I was told. It seems a good 800lb saltwater swivel in the middle of the cable would be safe.

F#17, maybe things have changed? I was told the opposite. Go figure.
Before CR's in Pa., Had guys make 'em for me with in-line swivels, 'to give them something to chew on.' Also put a branch (nowadays called, a chew toy) within catch radius for critter to chew on.
1x19 seems to fire faster and with less fur damage.
Here's some CR caught fur from this season...

Re: cable size

Hern..nice fur there. Quick question...are you getting fox and yotes in the same set ups ( loop size and height from ground) or are you targeting each differently? I was told you won't catch both, it's either one or the other, depending on your set up. I don't know, I caught a big coon in a CR today around his hips, 12 loop, 11" up. Must have took a running leap to get snagged , as it was set for coyote.
