[Market-farming] Gophers

Allan, the traps are not baited with anything.( I use victor gopher traps)
The traps are set and placed in the run. I then place a board over the hole
to cover all but a very small point of light. When the gopher comes to plug
the hole (or cover up the light) he passes through the trap and is caught.
Be sure to tie a wire to the trap and secure it to the ground. I have had
gophers pull the traps into the ground. Also in my area coyotes and dogs
will sometime dig up the traps with the caught gopher. TB
