It's taunting you Razorback , try to adjust the trigger or put the bait tied into a onion bag to the rear of the trap held by small zip tie , making him put his paw in further , maybe this might help , I've used the onion bag trick and it's worked when dealing with a criter thats fustrated me in the past

I use a pipe set. so no trigger tension setting. Think the onion bag might be a nose catch .

 Reset snare, all bears disappeared last night . 204 videos of squirrels.

Maybe just little deeper for the bait , either that this bear is educated on this type set , could very well be one that been to your set in the past

Try setting the snare in front of the pipe by about 16 inches like you would set it without the pipe . I would give that a try.  Sounds like a bear that I had 15 years ago that was stepping /pushing on the spring arm of the thrower and disengaging the trigger then helping him self to the bait caught  him  by using a second snare in a blind trail set about 10 yards out from where the baited snare was . Just set like i would any trail set leg hold trap . It worked .

No bears for 3 days now at that site.

 Small one showed up at the site  where his buddy bit the biscuit.

 Wasn't to worried about the snare circle and blood

I think your big one arrived at my place! I can't seem to post a picture here, too old to learn. we are not that far apart as the crow flies.

Things that I have witnessed over the last 20-40 years. Society has become devoid of common sense and reasoning skills. Idiots breeding more idiots who are led by the nose through simple flashing lights from their iphones and other gadgets. Not only are they told what to think and what to do all under the BS of " social connectedness" but they pay a monthly fee for it.

The monster lives on............  Went in this morning  from the trail I could see no action  both barrels still had logs across the tops.

  Go it to drop off bread and in the snare is a 100lber  snare around its neck and dead.. Been snaring a few years and never caught a bear that way.

   Body was still warm  feet were cool.  No rigger  Sure stunk inside when the knife opened the cavity. All the fat on its back was red.

 Draw back to setting a pipe snare  the head must have been pushed hard to the eyes on the pipe  when its noses hit the trigger.

 Well my season is over .

 . 4 bears harvested from the land ,3 at that site in a month. my 295lb rifle , Tim's bear rifle, and a 100lber  snare . 4th bear was 130 lbs snare harvest 1/2 km away.

Well I finally got out to set a snare and when I got there I found that I forgot to put the wrench in my pocket to lock the snare to a tree . Any way I did make my set up and put some bait out as well as a trail camera just to see what is there . I also did a bit of a recon and retrieve session because not too far from where my set up is is a spot that I put two young guns in and loaned them a barrel, well they did not secure the barrel to a tree so a bear made off with it and they could not find it , The barrel not the bear. Any how the barrel has now been found after 15 min of tracking after it was missing for a couple of weeks , it was not too hard to follow the trail , lol . Going back tomorrow to actually put out my snare , wrench is packed .

 I make a loop in the snare and  put the holding end through  it . But I have found I usually need a wrench to undo the  snare end as its set tight to the paw.
