Planning on trying my hand at snaring this year. I purchased a dozen of the Snare Shop snares last year from FNT.

Im looking to custom make some for this upcoming year. So I searched on T-man and didnt really find the answer to the question I wanted, so here goes.

Do you all have a specific supplier that you get your cable from? I know some suppliers say Korean made 7x7 or whatever. Is the stuff at FNT more for earth anchors and slide cables, or is it quality snaring cable.

Not opposed to buying from Snareone, dakotaline, Snare Shop, etc. Im just more interested to hear what some high quality snare guys think of that debate. or is there really any noticeable difference?

Thanks!!

7x7 I don't think the mfg doesn't matter so much. 1x19 the origin is more important. I get all my 1x19 from Newt. Don't know what all the others get so can't comment there.

Stay away from the stuff MTP sells. Lots of respect for them folks, im not bashing MTP at all,, they even sent another roll to try but both were pigtailed and worthless for snares. Looked like both rolls were rewound.. This was 2 years ago.

I got my 1x19 cable from the Snare Shop. No complaints. It isn't Chinese cable, most of that stuff is junk. It's South Korean cable and good stuff.

Manufacturer matters quite a bit. Korean is the way to go,forget the chinese made cable.

I can't speak for others, But I know Newt and I only sell and make snares/CR's from Korean cable. It does make a difference. A person can really see the difference when they are making snares/CR's year-round. Nothing is more frustrating than seeing the cable that forms an S rather than a circle. Whoever you get it from just make sure it is korean.

I bought a big roll of 1x19 7/64 from MTP for wolf snares about 10 years ago. Used some on coyotes also. It seems to be good stuff, never had any issues. (was Korean made). I don't use snares much, I'm more of a foothold guy, so I still got lots left. No idea if they have changed suppliers in the meantime or not, so I can't say if they are still carrying the good quality stuff or not.

Depends what you're snaring.
If it's coyote, beaver etc. , yep Korean 1X19 in the 1/16th, or 5/64th cable is by far the best .
7X7 is what I use on mink 3/64th and 1/16th

I bought cable a few years back. It is 1x19 stainless cable. I don't remember where from for sure. I think it was from Thompson Snares. This was a 1000 ft spool. That was one of the best decisions I made when I was younger. Still have a good portion left. Remake all my destroyed snares with it. Good stuff.

Thompson cable seems to be in a class of it's own.
It runs a tab bit larger than size indicates.

I buy most of mine from Keith Gregerson, any I can't get from Keith I get at Dakota Line.
Both have worked awesome for me.
I'm not afraid of buying old snares, or taking used cable and making snares / cable anchor's either.

Im on my 3rd roll of 1x19 1/16th from the snare shop. Bought in 5000 foot rolls. Have another one on the shelf. No complaints. Im using the cable on power rams. Lays flat and no twists.

Ok, so maybe this should be a new thread, but Ill ask anyway. In Indiana, we are required relaxing locks on anything over 15 circumference on land.

So Im interested in snaring coon and coyote and 15 circumference is too small for either of those.

What would suggestions be on setup?

From all my reading and watching videos it seems like 3/32 1x19 cable might be the ticket here? Should I use a BAD? Just run deer stops @ 2.5?

Thoughts?

Parvo, I live the next state over.
Relaxing lock is such a grey area, that any warden I've ever met doesn't have a clue the true definition of just exactly what that is.
As long as the lock quits tightening when the animal stops pulling, I've been told.
Well heck, that's every lock shy of a Ram or a choke spring-assisted snare.
I quit using 3/32 long ago, same with snaring raccoon, (on purpose)
Buyers here don't want them. The raccoon market is low enough without snare marks.
Get some DP's , nest way to harvest raccoon, IMO.
1X19 -5/4th Korean on coyotes , beaver and yes, any raccoon that walks.
Come down and spend a day this fall . I'll make it worth your trip

Xxxx2 ^^^ I used 1x19 5/64 cable for pretty much everything. I wont hang cable for coon anymore. Even when fur prices were higher you got docked for the snare burn on the hide.

LT,

I have a dozen dps from last year when I really got serious about trapping and ordered another dozen last week (out of town on business this week, so hoping for a surprise when I get home).

I really just wanted to snare some to try and become more proficient in as many ways as possible. If nothing else, snaring coons to help me learn more for coyotes and nuisance braver work.

I do understand the fur docking part though.

Whereabouts in OH are you? Im about an hour straight north of Indy!! And I might well have to take you up on your offer at some point!!

( I M O ) . . .Snaring raccoon wouldn't help you "learn more for coyote and nuisance ( I think you meant ) beaver work ."
Unless it is how to 'set up' a snare,
Snaring raccoon will just help you learn how to be better at snaring raccoon.
Loop size, height and often location will separate the difference.
If you want to learn how to snare coyotes and beaver, you just go set snares for coyotes and beaver and set lots of them at lots of location.
When pursuing those animals mentioned, you want to learn to avoid raccoon at all cost.
To catch raccoon in numbers set multiple snares on any raccoon trail and you'll end up with raccoon. They are one of the easiest animals to snare.

Now for coyotes, I am usually baiting areas with every possible entrance and trail covered, usually 15-25 snares or more to an area,
So, 10 locations would have up to 250 snares set. Just my way of doing it.
Beaver would be at every 'haul out', trail and dam crossover. Simple as that.
