Building snare (How to Crimp wire to cable) ( 20:53:27 FriApr 11 2014 )

Hi everyone,

I bought the "Alaska Wolf Trapping Manual" from the Alaska trapper association. I read it a couple time, and it is very interesting each time.

They explain that we can crimp, with a double ferrule, a no.9 support wire to a 3/32 cable. It's a very good idea! I've tried this year with no. 11 wire, but it's a little small. So, like to do like they explain, I bought hundreds of feet of galvanised no.9 wire, to do the same thing... But the no.9 wire does'nt fit my ferrule, it's too big!!

Do you know what is wrong? May be my ferrule are smaller? Can I drill a bigger hole in each ferrule?

Somebody here use this method? (3/32 cable with no.9 wire support crimped)

Thank you for answering me! I have 600 brand new snare lock who wait for me!

I have made snares for wolf and other species by using a thick nut.

Insert the wire through the nut where you want it. Hammer the nut until it grips tightly. Not too much or the threads of the nut will cut the wire. If done just right the threads on the nut will help hold the wire.

LOL Thank you sir for your answer! May be my question was little too specific! LOL

I thought that writing on a forum from Alaska will bring me some answer about the book I bought from the Alaska trapper association... I don't know where was my mind!

Thank you for your technique with nut, I use myself the loop to to loop system for years now.

The technique I speak about, joining a wire to a cable with a ferrule, look very great and easy to "hide" in the bush. I'll make my own tests, and bring you a picture after! I have to find how to fit my wire to my cable with the ferrule... if it work, my snare and support will stay (open or close) in the wood years after year, without rust...

Thank you! and have a great summer! (still 8 feet of snow here LOL)
