Something else. I am new to setting snares for wolverine as well. The mistake I made on this one above was to anchor to low. The guys that have been successful with it for a while will tell you to anchor high. The wolverine will twist himself right off the ground and hang himself.
Takotna is a pro at it. Listen and follow his lead. I haven't been sorry.
These are Takotna's posts that should be resurfaced. They demonstrate well the use and necessity of a high anchor. I really like the 1/8 7 by 7. I catch a surprising number of fox in it as well. Very limber and fires well.

Posted on the thread above.
