Do you prefer snares or body grips for running pole type sets?



What are your squirrel snares like?

Snares. 24 guage brass wire. I believe I copied trapper Ron from the archives. Works like nothing else.

16 pound steel fishing line works just as well, if not better, than the brass wire IMHO.

I realize I probably won't get many answers on this thread, but I figured I'd ask anyway.....


What are squirrel pelts primarily used for? I know the tail hair is used for fishing lures, but the pelts were fleshed and boarded in pictures on that archived thread. I'm just curious. I briefly searched online, and didn't see anything that really suggested serious amounts of pelts used for anything in particular. I see that Several hundred thousand squirrel pelts per year are taken, and that's quite a few...to me at least

Most of the squirrels taken for pelts are pine or red squirrels. Not fox or gray squirrels. Realize that does't answer your question.

I used to skin and finish fox and grey squirrels both that were caught as incidentals during fur season. The going rate was $1-2.......gas money like most possums.

Red squirrels are furbearers with a nice fur and durable leather.They normally sell at auction for around $2 avg.The market for them has been depressed for the last few years with them selling for around a dollar.I have received as much as $4 in the past.They are normally used for linings in expensive mens leather coats.Some years they are extremely abundant.
