This blog is dedicated to the wonderful art of Gophering!!! In these pages you will find one mans journey to discovering the hidden mystery of successful gopher hunting. You will also find reviews of gopher traps, poisons, and other methods I've personally used to defeat the enemy. Take my hand, and my blog, and follow me in GOPHER WARS!
I set this cinch trap in my neighbors yard. I added a tasty morsel of death in the hole next to the trip wire; cabbage and carrot bits. Due to my Obsessive Compulsive Gophering Disorder (OCGD), I checked it an hour later. You can see the trap is already sprung.
When I pull the trap from the ground, what do I find...#15. (It's like unwrapping a Christmas gift each time).
He couldn't resist the cabbage and carrot bits. After a brief pause, he's laid to rest. He was a valiant warrior who raged a good fight. Oh, what a lethal combination a cinch trap, cabbage and carrots are, in the hands of someone who knows how to use them. RIP #15.
