Nice one bud many of more to come.
Can remember the first field snared rabbit i got was over the moon.

Remember to check your snares at least once every 24hrs saves the jip if someone stumbles across them and by law.

Why you setting snares over the burrow entrance? snares are set on the runs.
What made the rabbit bolt into that hole you snared? :hmm:
I just find it hard to belive that you was around the hole setting your snare and then a rabbit just happened to run into that hole...

i know it shocked even me! it must have been laying low as i was near it and win i stood back up again obviously it got scared and bolted! lovely rabbit though made a very nice supper :) and the runs are not very obvious in that field so i set them over the burrows

why have snares got to be set on runs ?
yes , thats where they work best , but sometimes you got to look outside the box, not all rabbit catching situations are perfect, so you gotta do different stuff, its still a result for the lad

I was going to comment earlier but never did, agree with moley and logun.. snaring in burrows and earths is not hard, done properly its very effective, especially rabbits and foxes..Should I sort some footage out when I get time?

Not sure of the lagalities but here goes -Before i had a shotgun or a lurcher we used to snare bolting foxes when using terriers and the success rate was very high ,unless charlie walked out and pushed it aside .The terrier knew the drill and waited at the entrance for it to be lifted ,after getting caught a few times i might add .Dont ask what the despatch method was as that may of contravened a law or two even back then .
