    This is just a couple days work for the little monsters. Mostly false starts and shallow tunnels but I found three deep ones. It has to be in one of them. Traps set, your move.

    A little collateral damage and wanton destruction is a small price to pay to take care of a gopher.. Either you destroy your yard or the gophers will. A 10mm and a dollar bill would have prevented this :D

    Do you have a dog? I’ve been told a dog is the best defense against gophers.

    I have dogs. The girl is a stone cold killer. Nothing survives in the back yard. But this is on the side of the house close to the front.

    I'd put out some gopher bait then I'd take some sammiches, couple pints of beer, a 22-250, and a box of ammo about 300 yds away and wait for it to stick it's head out.

    Get a 10mm.

    One shot into the ground will vaporize the area.

    Rattlers taste better.
