Hi did some snaring lots of years ago it,s best in winter when there are no small rabbits as they hop  lower and knock the snares over best to set the snares on a well used run
a hand span of the ground you get them by the neck that way

for some reason you will catch small rabbits at the same height as adults , the height that a rabbit snare is set is  6.5 inches off the ground . That is a starting point and the snare should be raised  to suit  grass height and weather conditions
