    Ive started makeing snares that will fall closed but wont loosen up untill you release them. They are made of 1/16" cable that has a work load of 100 pounds and a test strength of about 400 pounds. Fully opened the loops are about 16" diameter and can be used for coons, bever or other small game and in an emergency (its illegal in most if not all areas) could be used to neck snare deer.
    The materials to make them run about $1 each and about 10-15 minutes of time to make them, so I am asking $2 each for them plus actual postage. I can make heavier, larger, smaller or whatever snares as ordered and can come down a bit on price for larger orders. Im also always up for barter so if you have something you may want to trade for them then let me know and we may be able to work something out. You can respond here or send me a PM if interested.

    ETA;READ FURTHER DOWN THE THREAD AS I FOUND BETTER PRICEING ON MATERIALS AND AM PASSING ALONG THE SAVEINGS! [beer]

    Well I finaly found a better buy on cable and so since my price to make the snares went down then the priceing improves.
    Basicly what I can do is that single snares will stay at $2 each, we can go $17.50 for a 10 and $30 gets you 20 snares. [beer]
