Im trying my hand at some snares this weekend...
Making them out of stuff from the shop since its on hand.

Anybody have some insight on this?

I have an idea on how to make a snare... in particular this time is for HOGs..

Gonna find a big cooker and throw them in with some baking soda to "weather" them and take the shine off and any scents..

Dig a hole in a dead log cut out some tin shine it up take a couple nails drive them into the hole at an angle with the points sticking out in the hole. Place the tin on the bottom. Supposedly it will catch a ****.

It has to have some kind of a lock, so when it tightens it stays tight. You cam also install a stop so that it will hold them but not strangle them. As hot as it is right now you want to finish them when you are ready to clean them and get the meat cool.

I'm not sure I would target hogs with a snare. Most people that I know trap them in live traps. A hog will tear up creation on a snare. And it will have to be large cable on a large tree to hold them.

I completely agree. Use snares to target smaller game: rabbits, squirrels, etc. For the big stuff, take the time to design live traps. They will last longer and be more effective.

Also, if you're wanting a simple idea for catching small game- go buy several large rat traps. They're easy to set and almost never fail.

You ever see a big hog tear up a steel enclouser? I have! Don't mess around with a snare for hogs. You'll just tick them off.
