That the reason I stick with my 4 eyes instead of wearing Contacts or letting some idiot with a laser trim my lenses! I dont have to remember safety glasses, if I can see, I know Im wearing them! Cant tell you how many times a scratch on the polycarb lens of my glasses reminds me of how painful a scratch on my Eyeball would have been (or worse). I did have a tiny branch whip through once while patrolling at Ft Drum and just barely tore the lens, mucho pain for way too long! Rather have a finger half severed (Been there,) than a scratch on my eye!
Yeah, I was pretty helpless for about 4 days.

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

since green limbs QUICKLY lose their "spring", the entire concept is silly, actually. forget the springy branch stuff, and stick to weighted traps, or "strangle themselves" set ups. Like loop for deer, set horizontally, 7 ft off of the ground.

7' off the ground ? how big are the deer in your part of the country ? What do you do with the saddles after you've snared these 7' foot "deer".

see? your ignorance is showing. :-) don't you know that deer raise up on their hindlegs to get apples and other food? you simply hang an apple, centered in the 18" loop of the snare cable, about a foot above it.

Oh I am ignorant of a whole bunch in this world. I read nothing of an apple in your post. Got any McClellans ?
