LOL - yea seems he's trying to snare something else. 
And what is he wearing in that first vid? 

Anyway - good, simple explanation of the subject, nicely done.

my husband used to snare rabbits when we first got married..he used a sharp fine wire so it would cut their throats and they would bleed out and not suffer..worked really well

ive never had success using snares.  i believe there is a science to it. or more so than i initially believed.  i had better fortune using leg traps for predators. 

but i personally wouldnt use snares for something i planned on eating.  most snares are a suffocation device.  all blood is retained in the meat.  i only eat bleed meat.  but for predators i have no problem using snares...........if i could just get them to work for me.

not enuff rabbit round here to try and snare.  theyve disappeared.
