WCS PRO-12 Bear Foot Snare

Price : $99.95
In Stock
Item Number : PRO-12
Manufacturer : Wildlife Control Supplies
Manufacturer Part No : PRO-12

WCS PRO-12 Bear Foot Snare has become the standard among bear trappers whether it be for sport or nuisance control. The PRO-12 is equipped with a 12" launcher (thrower) with specially shaped jaws to hold and propel the spring loaded cable up and onto the bears paw. The launcher has a triggering pan which is tension adjustable to avoid smaller bears and other non-targets. This pan has been "right-sized" and is 95% active, meaning a bear can step practically anywhere within the traps diameter and trigger the foot snare. Another benefit is that either the jaws or springs can be easily removed and replaced if damaged.

Note:  The PRO-12 is allowable in Maine.  It has passed the Lynx test.

The launcher is powered by two custom springs approximately the size of 220 body-grip springs. The spring sizing makes for a very fast closure, but at the same time allows a captured bear to easily "shake off" the launcher after being captured.

The second part of the WCS PRO-12 Bear Foot Snare is a 3/16" 7 x 19 cable snare with a custom lock and a 40" compression spring that runs the entire length of the cable. The cable loop comes equipped with a heavy-duty swivel on the end for ease of anchoring.  

Very easy to open and set. There is a safety device mounted next to the dog allowing you to hold the jaws open while positioning the cable loop. Prior to mounting the cable loop into the bends of the WC S PRO-12 Bear Foot Snare the compression spring on the cable should be fully compressed allowing you place the bare cable into the bends of the jaws, under the dog prior to engaging the pan, and complete the loop on either side of the thrower allowing the lock to rest on or near the pivot point of the jaws.

When a bear steps onto the foot snare pan, the jaws close, the cable is propelled upward and onto the bears paw and in an instant the compression spring is released, "snapping" the loop onto the bears paw.  Unlike other bear foot snares on the market this one does not depend on the bears movement to close the cable loop.
