What happened? Was it illegal to bring back to Minnesota?

Ah, it was a prank played on one trapper by another. As far as legality, might be a case there as the dillo was a non-resident.

I haven't given diller snaring a serious effort yet. You'll know it when I do. Snaring armadillos, either I can do it, or I'm too dumb to know that I can't.


The single biggest problem I had during my halfhearted attempts earlier was opossums. With bodygrips, a grinner would get whacked, leaving the remaining sets available. With these snares, they would just fire em all. I have a couple new Indian tricks in mind for the day I come back to it whenever I get time to do it right.

Trying to snare them was just for fun. It wasn't meant to be anything but that. I'll give it another try when things slow down

I cannot take the suspense....:)

I came back from the dead to discover the outcome and I am left hanging like one of those movies that do not end ( well ).

So....any luck, photos ?

I believe it can be done, but I haven't had time to dedicate to it.

One of these days, I'm going to either prove I can do it, or I'll admit that I can't. I'm not sure if I've said it already in this thread or not, but I'll say it now---- I feel as though I know what it will take to get it done, but I haven't taken the time to put the theory into practice. I do not believe a "convential snare used the conventional way" is the answer. I haven't spent much time trying to disprove that either. When the body armor is considered, I think anyone would realize the typical setup won't work. I also feel as though the shape and armor will prevent a lock from locking up, SO, when you can't go over, you must go..........?

When I first started it, I was probably asking about neck snaring them. However, I decided that if I could consistently body snare them, that would suffice.




Honestly, it just hasn't been high on my list of priorities, but one day, I'll get to the bottom of it at the request of my buddy River Birch. I do believe the answer is a snare that is inverted. I just have to prove it.
