My first thought was you'll need to angle that snare somehow to make the walk into it.

So, with that thought I would try one this way. Lower the holder so that the snare sits in the ground and angle the top away a slight bit. That might allow the head to enter the snare first.

This is what I did with two of them last night.....hoping they'd walk into it first

Day Three



Day three. Ole day three.....I put another 0 on the board. Bulldozed all three snares. I have no choice but to put a camera on it. Let's see what's really happening.

I'm also going to shrink my loop to as small as I can. 2"

You may have to body snare them.

I may have to, but I hope not. I want to get rid of them, but I'm not in a great hurry. The trail is only about 60 yards from my house, so I look forward to checking progress each day. If I am not able to neck snare em within the next 10 days (I know that's a long wait), I'll move on...

Maybe so, but I think it'll be much easier than neck snaring them, at least that's what it's beginning to look like. I'm trying new things trying to get it down though...

Cool, let's get this diller snaring figured out! What size loop are you trying?



I've been too busy with work today to update the ole diller snaring thread, but I will---eventually.


All 3 snares were empty this morning. I will try Again tonight with a trail camera to hopefully better understand where I'm failing. I suspect the shoulders keep the snare from getting them behind the head, and their armor is preventing the cable from biting and holding on em. That or they're just putting it in reverse.



Keep us updated!

Two questions:


1: What size swivel is that?


2: How are you bending the lock endstop cable that way? Just curious

8-0 swivel
Needle nose pliers

3 1/2 inches tall, lock will be set at 3 o'clock so it fires up. There is only about 3/4 of an inch between skull armor and body shell. It will have to be there to hold.

Did you set it out, and did you put a camera on it?


Good point about the narrow gap.

Some people eat them others make helmets . Other than that they're just a nuisance.

Here are the 3 snare sets I'm trying tonight.


A vertical loop to try to avoid the support connection area of the cable from being bulldozed from the side.





Here's the legsnare style miniature 3" loop approach. Hoping the same cable area is as low as possible...




7x7 3/64" with a deathblow cam...




^^^Rigged the ole trail cam to an empty cable spool on a 5 gallon "blue" bucket. I have it set on video so hopefully I'll have something to learn from/share. I believe I'll be moving to body snares to try within a few Set nights...

I haven't had a chance to check it yet. I'll be checking them by about 4 this afternoon. I hope I have some video of the joker. Depending on what the camera shows me, I'm planning on dropping the neck snare approach by the end of the weekend and maybe as early as tomorrow night.

I feel as though neck snaring them just probably isn't the way to do it, and that body snaring them is probably the way to go when it comes to catching them with cable.
