Yes

Here I don't know if I would use 1/16 cable. I see what are coyotes do to 5/64.. 5/64 1x19 is my min. size.

Backroad, we dont get real bigguns down here, but i would not use the 1/16 without a lethal set up. I've used a gregorson lock on 1/16 7x7 a couple times in lethal situation and they worked great.

For years, I used the Gregerson L-4 lock with success.
It is a one shot deal in most cases.
The Cam loc ( Cam lock ) when it first came out of Edmonton was a lock I really liked and I went to, almost exclusively for a number of years.
After awhile, there were so many clones made from cheaper metal, it became hard to find the originals.
Cam locks are not what they used to be, however there is a place to still buy the original ones !
If you can use them with 'teeth' filed in them, they are far better for it.
However these 'cheaper' cams made using 'cheaper metal' make that lock now almost a one shot deal, as the groove worn into the lock, prevent it from locking up tight again a second or third time.
Now the Slim lock with it's hardened metal is a lock I do feel good about re-using.
It is low profile and locks plenty tight. I still have live coyotes where entanglement doesn't present a problem.
I still find myself using all three locks, all of which on 1 X 19 Korean cable snares.
The Slim lock will be used more often than not as a first choice.

John Graham's Ambergs all the way. I want my coyotes dead and dead right now. Alot of people use too strong of kill spring. < 50 lbs is good. On thickly furred montana coyotes, an inferior lock results in alot of live coyotes, and live coyotes result in a lot of chewed out coyotes. I like a heavy lock, and the ambergs fit the bill. And no, I don't like the copycat version of the ambergs.

A dead coyote is not doing anything to cable..

When I am catching them live , I use 3/32nd 1x19.


If it makes a track on this earth , I can catch it.

I don't do much snaring, but when I do set a snare for a coyote I use the same snares I use on wolves, just with a smaller loop. 3/32 1x19 with a SMOOTH cam lock. I stress smooth, because when I tried the toothed cam locks I had a lot of problems with them freezing up.

Bridger Cam Lock with teeth and a kill spring. Ten feet long and put a swivel in the middle of the snare and your good to go.

Slim locks, they cut through the ice and hore frost, the best lock for my conditions.

Have you tried the micro lock? The problem I have occasionally experienced with the slim lock is that the short protrusion on it catches up in the thick neck fur and does not lock up on the cable as it's designed to do. This has not happeded to me with the micro lock and it also cuts through the ice and hore frost quite well in my exoerience.

bctomcat Yep tried a number of different lock's, Slims have not failed me yet in regards to the weather or conditions I deal with here. In my experience to low of a snare, to large of a loop, or low anchoring contribute to the lock getting binded up in the fur. No lock is perfect but this one I am very content and confident with.
