OK I follow the snare set up, I use snares on my coyote and cat line. The problem Im having getting my tiny brain around this is: When a critter hits a snare the snare closes, hoepfully quickly, now when the snare pops off the wammy and support pole the critter continues to move ahead, or maybe even sucks back. The snare is now on the animial and by the snare being anchored solid when the critter continues to move the cable comes tight and the loop is sucked down secure enough that their will be very little chance of escape. The problem Im having in figuring this out is: when the beaver hits the loop it comes closed, mostly, now the beaver continues down the slide and the snare on a drowning wire continures with it. Now if the beaver feels this length of cable dragging along in the water why not just back outa the snare, the cable will give a little being on a drowner and maybe afford enough slack for the beaver to escape. Is this even a legitimate concern, is my thinking way off, would the beaver dive out or instinct - hit the end of the slide then the end of the snare and suck everything tight? Am I making any sense at all, did I forget my medication today, I think I might go and commit myself. wew .... lol. Im probably over analyzing.
Thanks for any advice, ADC thanks for the drawings, Im guessing then that the snares it the drawings are attached to the drowning cable with just a basic drowning lock?
