The main benefit to setting a snare in a survival situation is that it works to catch food around the clock without any effort from the survivor aside from the initial set-up. This is incredibly important at times when energy must be conserved.
Of course, if you’re not in a survival situation, make sure to check your local laws and regulations before setting any snares. While they are acceptable to use in survival situation, trapping rules and regulations must be followed when trapping for meat or fur.
