The slide wire technique also saves set area from being ripped up and can most often be reset multipule times. I use it alot in places that I feel are good for multipule catches year after year. Short snare on 8-10" slide. I do use oversize grapples when setting in cattails. When wrapped around a clump it is the same as being staked - they go nowhere.

Did it this past year with good success,5 in 4 spots on one fenceline.2 crawlunders and 2 where they were hoping through the middle of the fence.All necked and 4 out of the 5 DOA.The one must have just been caught cause the "bomb"hadn't gone off at the site.James

At times you will run across a fenceline where animals are passing through but the fence is worn down from time and/or abuse.
Coyote snared in old fences will quite often damage them.

To block this type of set-up often takes a lot of time, brush and is often hard for it to look natural without it looking too "man made."
I have noticed that if blocking appears unnatural, coyotes will go around it or avoid it altogether.

The best way, I've found to do it is to to cut off a piece of woven wire fence and "ring" it right onto the old fence wire. I then cut a hole where the animals have naturally been passing through.

This of course is done during early pre-season to get the animals using it again.
I also throw in some light cut brush to help blend it in...time of course will be your best friend with that.
Animals see fence mending all the time.

While they may back off a while, they will eventually start using it again and once season opens you can set your snares in the narrow opening.
I would much prefer to have my snare fastened onto an 8 ft. 1/8th" slide (drowner) cable than fasten it onto the fence. This gets the animal away from the area, (well 8 ft. any way) and leaves the pass through open and not torn up.
Not always possible though! wink

Here is a prime example of the above post.
Snare is set in the opening, which if you count the squares, is about 14"x 16".
Honey suckle vine helps not only block down naturally but also help camoflauge the lock and snare.

Ok, so it wasn't on a fence, but she did try to jump/pass through it. No such luck though.

As to using a drag with a snare, it works well to preserve the site for reuse. Keith Gregerson would use old tires for drags in the sagebrush of Montana. As I recall, he said the cats would go about ten feet and the coyotes might make it sixty feet. Biggest problem he seemed to have was with eagles finding the catch and feeding on them before he got the line run.

"Man, I'm still learnin' after 30 years of hangin' hoops."

That's exactly right! Every day a feller spends on his line w/o learning something is a waste of time & effort!

Waugh!

That's my next trapper. We are learning together.

Yes 45/70, if you go a day living without learning something I think you are pretty much done.

This is what often happens with coyotes snares, when foxes pass through a 14" loop...

Picture of a "perfect" pass through location, where coyotes were jumping through a woven wire fence.
You may notice that the fenceline is covered with honeysuckle vine, which makes for a perfect blending job on this 5/64th cable.
Snare staked off and lightly fasten to the barb wire. wink

Location that takes about a dozen fox and coyote a year.
A trail through a fenceline leading to a bait station.

Here is the set-up that caught the above coyote.

There is a snare set here, even though it blends in quite well.

This is an actual snare set in a fence-pass through. Do yoiu see the loop? Lock? It's there.
