Was out with Pig Popper Friday night, he nailed this 165# boar that had about ten inches of snare wire around its front foot. Looked and smelled nasty.

Unusual to have one catch it's hoof in a snare (unless a trap fired foot snare was used).

I use 'deer stops' on all my snares to help prevent foot caught animals. It will not allow the snare to close up tighter than a 3-1/2" diameter.

That hog was well on it's way to losing that hoof.

I shot a Coyote a few years ago that had somehow escaped a snare. It had a very distinct mark from the incident around it's neck.
