Professional Fox Snaring

Glenn Waters is well known in the UK and abroad as a trapper and hunter of skill, knowledge and great ingenuity. Although just as handy with the trap, net or dog, it is the development and championing of humane snaring for which Glenn is probably known best.

Those of you who have read Glenn’s first book, on rabbit snaring, will be familiar with his early introduction to snaring and his informal apprenticeship with some of the snaring masters of the day. An experience which set Glenn on his own road seeking simplicity and perfection in snaring.

This book is a practical book, compiled from a selection of Glenn’s writings, articles, his hand drawn illustrations and photographs of his snaring at work. It describes the snare, options for support systems and discusses a range of anchoring systems. It goes on to detail the techniques for setting a snare effectively and any problems and challenges that you might encounter. It is packed full of original ideas, personal stories and lessons learned from a lifetime of experience – its is probably the most comprehensive book on fox snaring ever published.
