LT,

The problem in Ohio is the five wildlife districts are sometimes run like five independent kingdoms. Collarums are being used legally in some parts of Ohio. You already know the Collarum does not close with spring assistance. If you want to be able to use them you will need to press the issue.

That is unfortunante as this occurs in other states as well. The laws should be established clearly and reasonably enforced in such cases and not be subject to such nit picking as is the case in some districts. Some WCO's allow reasonable latitude in the collarums use and it many times comes down to interpretation and even then it is not clear to some as they arent trappers nor have the positive attitude towards trapping and restraint devices.

\:\) Well yes, I realise that, however many "wardens" feel because it "springs forward" when triggered, it falls under a "certain" catagory. I agree there shouldn't be division, where one can and one can not. It does depend on certain individual officers and how they view it and sometimes how they view you! Personally speaking, I feel they are a great tool. But then I know how to use the real ones too, although most suburds are not ideal snaring situations, I'll be the first one to admit!

LT, you mentioned foot snares, how do you rig for those? Cable, lock and im assuming you use a breakaway?

Yes, a break-away if it's on a cam-lock, as that is law in my state on a lock of that kind. What kind of break-away do I use? An s-hook Made by Hal Sullivan. I have 3 different set-ups. So I'm still trying to improve it to make it fool proof. As if. \:\) But I do foot snare a number of foxes and coyotes each year, and yes, it's on purpose. Most of my set-up include a Slim ( for low visability) or Gregerson lock on a (3/32 swagged down to a) 5/64 stainless 7x7 cable. (It's the same cable used in artifical limbs. Only a handful of snaremen know this) The snare is tripple swiveled, which is where the set-up varies. Some also have stop-shocks on them. Still experimenting on that one. I use a snare support that I've designed which is, in my opinion, the best one out there. All my stuff is camo painted to blend in with the enviroment. A lot can be shown easier than explained over a type writer. \:\)

Mind showing some pictures if you have got them? I think I might have some spots this summer that may require that kind of rig for livestock protection.

If I can get someone else to do it I would be glad to post it. I don't have a digital camara and don't know how to do it( post a picture) even if I did. Hey Dtwarrow I think lives somewhere in my area and I think he said he had some photography skills. Maybe he can come up one weekend and film how the leg snare works. I have leg snared some coon but it was more on accident I think than anything else!

You can use footholds in Florida for damage control. Your landowner has to make application to whatever y'all call your DNR, and show you as his agent.
I have a couple of good friends here in South Georgia, who hire out to the quail plantations as control trappers almost every year, they use a lot of footholds -- and the money is great too.
Adios,

Coyote control can be broad coverage where every Yote is fair game, and single animal/family targeting. How you approach it depends on which game you're playing.
Alot of real good info here.
Once you you can target single problems reliably, you are at a new level in trapping. And you will look at your lines with new eyes from then on.

My snare support for foot snaring can be seen on Trapper Talk, on the Post: "LT Grey snare technology does well in New Zealand". by COOTE
