This thread can be used for talking about anything pocket gopher trapping related, kind of like the Mighty Mole thread. Feel free to post all your methods, pics, and anything else closely related to the subject. smile

I will start, I use Death Klutch traps. I have heard mixed opinions on this trap, but it works good for me, but I would be glad to listen to more opinions. smile I would show you some pictures, but I dont bring the camera along, but maybe Lt. Grey and some of you other guys have some!:)

I use the gophinator traps made by Steve Albano. I also have a Rodenator that I use on the farms and for ground squirrels in the parks.

A 5 year ADVANCED SEARCH, on the ADC Forum, for gopher will bring up almost 400 posts with the word gopher in them. A lot of good pictures, techniques, and advice are contained in them.

Yeah Robb, what is it with the fantastic service lately? We have ordered supplies from several different companies in as many different businesses and it almost seems like the stuff is in the garage when you hang up the phone. Anybody else out there notice this?

9 pocket gophers and a badger.



just got home today from a maintenance job. not alot going on there except coyote and badger digging in an old hay field that is now a bean field. They are after ground squirrels and voles. I have pretty good luck trapping the badger with a bucket set baited with fresh pocket gophers.

Yeah I ordered 100 traps from Steve 3 weeks ago and got them in 3 days and he did not even have my check yet! Now that is good service.

Thanks guys, for all the crap the US Postal service gets, I have to say their First Class and Priority Mail service is hard to beat in terms of price and delivery time. They really do a good job with it.

I use Death-Klutch traps. Here's a picture of the one I caught the other day. I put a 330 next to it for size comparison. Do they make good bait for fox?

Gophers are good bait, this is not from experience, although I used striped gophers last year for bait, I am going to try these for bait this year.
