PETA threw a big stink saying that animals will chew their leg off so they are humane. That never happened. The toothed versions did occasionally snap the bone of a immature or smaller animal than the trap is designed for, a few times resulting in the animal escaping and leaving behind a paw. This was rare, and the new traps have a soft pad that prevents breaking but also cannot be pulled out of. I prefer snares myself but have caught many a racoon/ weasel on paw traps. Never a bobcat personally though, they are notoriously wary and smart. They walk on tree branches and stuff avoiding the ground and trails.

I hunt, and have for about 20 years now I know, I'm old but could never get into trapping, mostly because of the fuck-offs we have here who lay traps and only check them once a week or less you don't let an animal snared or snapped for that long , I don't consider them sportsman or anything like one. But then again I don't consider those who don't eat what they kill a sportsman.

every 2-3 days, usually run my lines for maybe 3 weeks. I always eat what I kill. Cat is the best of the predator/ rodents. The only time I haven't had a live animal was a rabbit that the coyotes got. 2 'yotes on the same line as well.

I designed a leg snare that uses the power ram spring.
22" high catch, no such thing as freeze-off up there ;)

Actually because it doesn't hurt, animals don't fight the snare, they just bury it and ignore it. When you show up they try to pretend you aren't there.

I can't find much in the way of pictures, This is the earliest design, it had what amounts to a screen door spring lifting it.
That's a 4"ABS pipe it's attached to (worst-case catch) and it's still tight enough it won't slide.
The latest revision has a breakaway inline, a few design changes, and an unfinished ram spring (had the manufacturer make them for us).
As part of the demo I catch myself in it.

This design is the kindest catch, no pain and it holds high so no blood flow problems. WCS in Manitoba stole my patented foothold trap design and didn't even pay for the trap he stole it from but this snare works just as well for a lower price (it does require replacement parts after a catch though whereas the trap could catch an animal a day for the next 40 years) .

This was the biggest "cat" we have encountered.
It was like trying to sharpen a running chainsaw...


As this pic is uploading I have come to the realization you meant pics of the power snare...
I'll see what I can find.

What country is that? This is probably the most common furbearer trap in the world. BTW if your answer is not Canada you also don't have bobcat there.

I live in upper Northeastern America In the mountains of New Hampshire. Up until about 10 years ago they could be found where I live. They can still be found in the middle of Maine where my father lives. The Legend of Whiplash  starring JK Simmons as Tenzin Fletcher

Canadian registered trapper here.
Yeah, our bobcat population is coming up. It's still lower than lynx.
For those who are wondering; The cat in the gif is small. Generally you can only take a limited number of cats per year, taking young cats still counts toward your quota. We generally take large males and avoid young/females. Because of this our population has remained steady for over 35 years (my father is a trapper as well).
The trap isn't all that hard on the animal. Some trappers are assholes and use illegal traps but we always use offset jaw (they don't come tightly together) , a center mounted swivel ("spin-off" is caused by the animal but that doesn't make it any less brutal) , and the trap I designed even has a very low holding pressure (less than 5lbs/spring) because of the use of leverage.
It comes up through the snow and ice fast but has very little advantage at the top of the stroke.
We caught one lynx 4 times last year. He doesn't like us very much...

well I'm eurofag (czech republic to be precise)... so, no bobcats. And our hunting laws are much more strict.

Yeah, those traps are pretty common I know, though I remember reading they're inhumane or some shit and were outlawed... but poachers still use it
