Gopher Hunting 101

Locate his spoil mound from tunnel and burrow digging.
Bucket is for seating, beer to be explained later.
Move mound and locate the plugged tunnel leading to burrow.
Unplug tunnel.
Set bucket back about 5' or so, and sit with shot gun in your lap until he decides to appear.
Foot note; this works better on a nice sunny day as they despise bright lights, much like gremlins.
Drink beer and wait, but, be sure to be on the ready as they're quick little fuggers.
When the do, most times, they'll throws a bunch of dirt towards the opening, and then push it up with their heads to re-plug the opening.
KABOOM!
I do offer trophy hunts, beer included(obviously the good chit).

I just uncover the mound, unplug the tunnel, and gas them with carbon monoxide. The trick is to use an old vehicle with a big engine and emissions controls AWOL. Not as much fun as your way, but much quicker when time is at a premium.

I don't care about the environment. Neither do you.

I've done that Creo with a 2 stroke engine and some extra oil in the fuel mix. That works well too, but the shotgun looks like a lot more fun.

I think I'd prefer the shotgun method as well, but we can't have such things up here.

Myself. I use my cz452 American on squirrels. But, when time is of the essence, a good sure shot down a pipe works wonders.
Also, it's infrequent we encounter them above ground due to my work schedule. I'm left to weekends, between honeydos/general house maintenance of 3 abodes.

Gophers or Muslims, either way you need to get rid of them and a shotgun is a good method.
