A simple trap to capture small animals. A loop tied to a stick. Not the brightest of designs, but it works. Hopefully.
~ In-game description

The Snare Trap is a type of equipment in DayZ Standalone. Using the snare, you can trap hares.

The snare is crafted by combining a metal wire and a wooden stick. Once crafted, set your trap on the ground in an open location, insert some bait such as earthworm and wait. If your trap fails to catch a hare, you'll have to return and reset it -- otherwise, you will have caught a hare that you can skin for its meat, bones and pelt.

Snares can only be used 2 or 3 times as of right now. Each time you use one, its condition goes down even if it doesn't catch a hare (i.e. Pristine -> Damaged). The number of uses will depend upon its initial condition when crafted (as determined by the condition of the base items used to create it).

The hare corpses are randomly generated; actual living hares (or rabbits) that roam the map are not actually caught in the trap.
