Survival Snares
 
 
Aircraft Cable is specified by the number of strands in the cable, times the number of wires in each strand. For example, the notation 7 X 19 means that the cable has 7 strands and there are 19 wires in each strand.
The diameter of the cable is noted from smallest to largest. For example, 3/64" to 1/8", with 1/8" being larger, thus having a greater breaking strength.
Using Survival Snares

Many people think they can set a couple of snares and be able to feed themselves. Wrong! In most instances, we recommend setting six to 12 snares on a good trail. They won't all make a catch, and it could be days before an animal uses the trail again. By reading our book, Snaring for Survival, you can learn to set snares that will catch nearly every animal using a trail, regardless of animal size.  Learn the skills you need to provide meat for your family when the stores are no longer open.

After all, if you're truly  hungry, there's no time to be picky. An opposum or fox is better than no food at all.
