Snare ?

Can you use a snare attached to drowning wire/cable for beaver or otter?

Yep, as far as I know you can. Just can't attach to a drag.

I would think so, but isn't there something about a snare being anchored solid?
Gray area as to a snare on a drown wire, rod, or cable.
I've thought about snare sets for muskrat, that would catch more than one on a slide.
If you look close to muskrat trails , sometimes there are two trails close to each other.
One leaving the water and one going back in.
You can tell by how the grasses are laid over in one direction.
Next time you find muskrat trails look close, you will see what I'm talking about. If you haven't already.
Just something I've thought about .

I have been using snares on drowners for years and they work great. In fact I did an article in FFG on snares with drowners/slides. It is legal as the snare is solidly anchored on at least one end, a feed sack of rocks on the other for me.

I use slides on coon trails with snare so the coon slides away from the trail to preserve the set. That works also.

Lots of options with snare.

Just make sure you have really deep water or a short snare.
