The Redman Snare Tool has a grooved notch in the end that fits either 9 or 11 gauge wire and makes quick work of setting support wires. Speed is key to hanging lots of snares, and this tool makes speed possible. This tool is also excellent for placing blocking at sets. Simply pound a pilot hole in the ground and put in sticks or grass to guide the critter. Powder coated bright red to make it hard to leave behind.
