Snare Question

I'm pretty new to trapping and want a snare that will hold raccoon, coyotes, and beaver.  Is there such a snare?

 

There is a short answer and a long answer but the less complicated short version is, yes there is a snare that will work for all 3 of the animals you asked about.  The biggest thing is if you are setting where a coyote can tangle up and expire quickly.  A long snare, in my opinion, is a waste on beaver and raccoon whereas a long snare for coyote is needed, at least the way I like to snare coyotes.  Off the shelf the Dakotaline Versatile would be a good choice as it gives you a little longer cable for coyotes to get to something to tangle in but not so much that your wasting a bunch of cable.
