I was taught how to make small game snares by a man that sells them online many years ago

I put together a how to movie a few years ago but I don't know where I put the DVD so I can upload it

Ofg gave u a pic of the most effective way I have seen squirrels snared u set out several and multiple catches isn't uncommon

It was a bad ass, trouble making, gansta squirrel that needed to be eaten.

Ive made snares from the wire in the cords of common appliances like toasters radios and lamps. the flat cords like your cheap extension cords.(just strip them down to the size snare you want)  I've snared a groundhog a ground squirrel and a squirrel (the squirrel using the same set up ofg diagrammed only I put 4 snares on the one pole) before I found out it was illegal to set snares without a license(furbearers I think)...or out of season  :whistle: hey, I was only 17  :P  id just strip the wire out and roll it like you do natural cordage and tie a small loop in the ends and pass one threw.  I never put a stick in it before setting it but I think that's a good idea.  as far as trapping, that's all the experience I have on the subject. good luck greene
Those that give up liberty for safety deserve neither.

i dont know which i like better, a sunrise or a sunset, but any day i get to see both is a good day.

U use a small stick or a match stick to make a loop on the wire end which u then run the opposite end of the wire thru to make your snare loop

Last night I read that if you put out a #2 foothold with peanut butter on the pan you can catch squirrels.

Just got back from scouting an area I was going to trap this week. Hardly saw any tracks.

I would say a 1 1/2 would kill a squirrel I think a 2 would squash it flat

a 1.5 would also work
