Making a snare

The easiest trap to make. Not technical at all. I like the 2nd video since the boy can't be more than 12 that's teaching you. Young teens make great snares, and will improve on their design since they are naturally curious.

The spring aspect is very helpful for stunning the rabbit or squirrel. I personally use a heavier sapling since that will jerk them harder, which I think is better.

You must check traps often to be humane. It is very cruel to make the animal suffer. They will chew off any limbs caught. You're going to make a circuit of checking the traps, probably twice a day. Trapping is about numbers. It's a probability based upon how many you set, and how often you check them, and how well you bait them with something that makes them curious as bait. The snare will work in any "run" area regardless of bait though, but of course bait will help. A squirrel will naturally be curious, and setting up a log against a tree where known squirrel activity is going on, say an oak with acorns present, will be an excellent place for several snares attached to the log. They'll climb, get snared, and fall off and be suspended.

It would be very foolish to make a trap and NOT de-scent your hands. Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap works well. Mint grows everywhere and disguises human scent well.
