Alberta Powersnare w #22 Magnum Stinger - Coyote - The middle-weight of the Stinger Kill Spring line, like the #33 Supermagnum the #22 Magnum Stinger was designed for wolf but was initially tested by Senneker on coyotes. At the time he was immediately enamoured with this device and immediately discontinued use of the #11 spring except in specific circumstances and use the #22 Magnum exclusively for coyote. Many trappers to this day choose the #22 Magnum due to their size preference, budget, or other considerations. The #22 Magnum Stinger Kill Spring remains a very effective size kill spring for Coyote, Wolf, Red Fox, Lynx, Bobcat, Wolverine etc.

We use and recommend a 5' length snare for coyote, comes w large end loop, and we tie the snare to the swivel on a swivelled extension cable that is tree-tied directly or staked. When tree tying, run the end loop of snare around tree and pass the snare loop thru the end loop to tie. After making a catch, cut the 5' snare off the swivel of the extension, and tie a new replacement snare onto the swivel and reset the snare in the exact snare location. We use #9 wolf snare swivels as an efficient tie point more so than for swivel function. The Senneker Alberta Powersnare kills quickly, thus elaborate expensive swiveling systems are an inefficient use of time and expensive. The man who knows what he is doing moves fast, in an efficient and effective manner that gets the job done on his quarry and treats his non-target game with the utmost of respect
NEVER TIE SNARES OFF WITH WIRE AS LIVESTOCK AND BIG GAME CAN READILY BREAK WIRE. Keep your non-targets around long enough for proper BAD to function.
When positioning trigger during spring compression, set the trigger in the 9 o'clock to 10 o'clock, See diagram in the photos, is a simple thing, virtual 100% firing rate.
Senneker-Shock Lock has proven sound on coyote, bobcat, lynx, etc
Prior to the invention of the #33 Supermagnum, this was Marty Senneker's #1 choice in a coyote snare and was all he used for coyote and fox, a 5' Senneker-Shock Lock snare w #265 BAD with a 5' extension. Consider using a shorter extension in heavy brush conditions with extreme entanglement. Some of the highest producing coyote and wolf trappers of today are using this spring/snare combination.
