I made these pictures many years ago. I was going through some old photobucket pictures and though perhaps some of the new trappers here would like to see them....

Thanks ADC.

Question: on dispatch snare, your S hook is labeled as a BAD, and the end of the cable is where you have it.

Does it close better that way with the cable in line with the cam rather than having the end of the cable passing through the side cam with a nut hammered?


I hope that makes sense.

I have some dispatch snares made that way with the spring, and I have some other snares that the cable goes into the cam at a 90 degree angle, and I was just curious.

Might want to include the cross frame.
Gets mentioned on here a lot when pan level questions come up.

There is a whole stack of hardware, but that can be found in catalogs.
Good idea adc.
