This is my first year snaring bear.
Last few nights i've gotten raccoons on my camera sitting on the bait but when the bear is around they scoot off.
So yesterday morning i set up my bear snare, but forgot to switch my camera back on.
At some point between last night and this morning, the snare was sprung. No bait was taken out of the bait bucket though.
I have bear tracks around the cubby as well as raccoon, but my moss cover over the trigger looked like it had been pressed by a small paw.
I use an aldrich snare btw.
So Im not sure if a raccoon tripped it or the bear did and got smacked by the thrower, scaring it off and making it not touch the bait.
Should I be concerned he wont come back to that set?
Id love for someone to post a picture of how the thrower is supposed to hold the snare, Im not 100% sure Im setting it on there right.
