Setting Rabbit Snares
Chose a location where a rabbit trail is evident. Look along the trail for natural choke point, a location where the trail narrows due to rocks or brush. You can create a choke point in the trail by using sticks or rocks placed alongside the trail. Rabbit like to jump so make sure you have something placed over the snare to discourage jumps. If placed correctly, the rabbit will be encouraged to go through the loop.
Create a loop approx the size of your fist or about 4 inches in diameter. Ensure the bottom of the loop is about 2.5 to 3 inches from the ground. If placed any higher the rabbit wil duck under the loop. Make sure there is no room on the left or right where the rabbit can edge through past the loop.
Also keep in mind that Rabbit are cautious creatures. It may take a few hours to an entire day for the rabbit to venture near the snare. That is the reason you want to set as many as possible.
