    Back on track, mooboy76, how did you make out? As per one of your questions "how long to make the wire" that's dependant on each set. I just bring a multi tool with me and cut each one to fit, sometimes the tree to tie off of, is closer to the actual run then another, so hard to account for that ahead of time.

    I miss making my runways and blocking sticks to funnel them into snare. As a kid in NS, we had to snare for meat and check every morning in the winter. Excess rabbits were hung on a cross armed fence at end of driveway with coffee can. .25c each. There were never any rabbits when I got home from school and the coffee can always had the exact amount of money for rabbits hung out... Good luck I envy you...

    Snaring was what I learn first before I had a gun. My Mom taught me how to skin them.

    My parents had a saying when they use to get us kids ready for bath time as they pulled our shirts off over the head "Time to skin the rabbit."

    Dad did the same to me and does to my boys "skin a rabbit" as he yanks the shirt.

    Just the one so far! I am tired of resetting the height to chase the sinking snow level though. I did have something walk off with one of my snares.

    I have to re-evaluate their movement patterns; they have changed since the warm weather and greenery has arrived.

    Thanks for the help!

    Now that I find interesting. I only ever used existing runs once the snow got deep enough. And I always tried to leave them alone as much as I could. I kinda get the idea of creating runs that they would follow naturally in deep snow, but I've never heard of it before. Care to expand on it?

    Same here, never hear of making my own trails. I placed them on their trails because bunnies usually follow their same path all day when possible.
