    I must announce to SOMEBODY that i just learned to trap gophers and have a 100% success rate so far, LOL. ugly little things they are.
    also a complaint to BYC.... they should put the 'this can be addictive' warning in HUGE letters, larger than what is there now!! [​IMG]

    Live trap? How do you catch them? Just wait by the hole and grab 'em when they come out? "GOTCHA!"

    12 gauge is my heavy duty way of getting rid of them. Also they make good target practice for my bow and .22.
