The use of snare wire is no exception, particularly because this type of wire is multipurpose. The first and perhaps the most obvious use of snare wire is to get food when in the wild outdoors, hence the word ‘snare’. Ideally, snare wires work effectively in this way if you intend to be in the same location for a couple of days; it is unrealistic to set the snare wire and expect to snare a rabbit in half an hour. The best way to do this is to set the snare traps at dusk and check them at dawn.
Snare wire also comes in handy when one is camping in the outdoors. One end of the snare wire is sharpened so that the result is a sharp needle-like appearance. The other end of the wire is folded to create a loop. Thread or fishing line is passed through the loop and the wire can be used in this way as a needle. This comes in handy when one needs to fix torn tents. In the absence of the needle, the snare wire may be used to tie ends to fix tent and tarps should the need arise.
Snare wire is also useful in the outdoors because it can be used in place of boot laces as well as used as a fishing line. In case one intends to stay in the outdoors for an extended period of time, this type of wire proves useful since it can also be used as a pot hanger. Snare wire makes for an integral component in any survival kit, and since it is easily available, it constitutes an important facet of emergency preparedness.
