I trapped from 1980 till 1992, but never heard of a moose snare. My younger brother still traps and I believe he caught 198 ****, 22 otter, 39 mink, a couple hundred rats, and 3 or 4 dozen beaver this year. He's the best I've seen. He caught 27 **** one day. He sells everything in Canada, and one year had the highest price ****.
