GOPHER TRAPPING—Please tell me bow to trap gophers.
The following is from the book “Science of Trapping”: “The traps recommended for the gopher are the No. O steel trap and some of the various choker traps made especially for this use. In setting steel traps, select the freshest mound, and by examining closely, one can usually tell which way the dirt was thrown out, and will know on which side to look for the burrow. A handy tool is a slender, pointed iron rod, to use as a probe in searching for the burrow. Having located the passage, open it up and set the trap on the bottom, sinking it down until level. Cover it lightly with dirt, and close the hole by laying a small piece of board or a flat rock or chunk over the opening, covering with ground. “The trap should be fastened with a stick, and the same stick will act as a marker, so that one can easily find the trap.”
