    I don't blame you. I really like gophers but they just do so much damage they must be controlled. I would be a little more wary of reaching in there but your the expert. Good demo of that trap thanks

    When I was little my baseball field was infested with gophers. I was stuck in right field and I was bored out of my mind, so I spent a lot of games trying to sneak over to a gopher hole to see its dumb little face poke out at me. I wanted to reach down and grab one someday but I guess that was never possible lol

    Great idea with the flag to hold it in place. I never thought about the gopher taking the trap in deeper.

    Dude, you should wear a respirator if you're going to be tractoring in dirt like that. The dirt is bad for your lungs and there's the risk of rodent-carried pathogens. Also, if you live in the west, there's the risk of valley fever, which is a serious lung fungus infection.

    He didn't invent nothing this is only a variation on a much older type of scissors trap used for gophers and moles for about a hundred years. There are about a dozen variations of this same design.

Also I know you may have stress by comments saying " stop censoring the part where they die" , or "drown! RUclip does not like that content so they demonitize your videos. Then you start losing subs. See? People need to understand that Shawn tries to upload what people came to see! Shawn, I know you may not read this but your content is great! I know what your going through. I share this channel with my friends and try to make you gain subs. I try my hardest. Thank you for the great content. P.S. Your daughter, Clementine is so adorable!!

    Just to add to some of the advice, just keep the traps with you as you mow and when you uncover a tunnel stop a moment set the trap in the tunnel with your flag and carry on with mowing, that way when they come plug the hole, you have them and don't have to dig.

    those gophers look nothing like Alberta ones. ours come out of there hole more too. never trapped them but have done propane and lit the hole on fire lots. now i put a 200 gallon tank in the back of the truck full of water and fill the holes. the jack russell terrier loves it.

  • Donald Barnett

    These gopher traps with only slight variation in design are over a hundred years old. They are based on one simple fact that you should know about gophers thy have an uncontrollable instinct to backfill there holes and can not leave a tunnel open to the air. This instinct is probably a protection against predators such as snakes and wessels. whit in a vary short time of you uncovering the hole to one of their tunnels they will come and back fill it with dirt. This is their weakness and the traps are based on this instinct. The trigger of the trap is closest to the tunnel opening and the right length to go off when the plug of dirt he is pushing hit the trigger his body in in the progs. Always tie the trap to a strong stake or he will pull your trap underground.

    With all them rodents, I'm sure there's a good amount of snakes around. This is a lot to ask, but could you take a shot at designing and making a video of a snake trap? Thanks!!

    Having lived in pocket gopher country in Central Oregon, gopers were a problem. The best trap was the CO-Z traps. With a stick find the run between mounds. Dig a trench crossing the run. Set the trap cross the run. Make mud from the dirt removed and pour the mud into the trench. Gopers prefer to dig in soft soil. They quickly return to repair the damage. As they push soil up into the trigger, they set it off. Very high success rate with this method. Someone told me to wash hands as they smell the human. Found in making the mud, this is false. Use your hands on the trap and making the mud and packing the trench and trap. They will be back to clear the tunnel right away.

    You need to leave the corpses out somewhere so other animals and bugs can eat it. That's the only way to justify these creators deaths.
