We didn't have gophers in Missouri where I grew up. We had moles and ground hogs. Moles we just flipped out of their tunnels as they pushed up a run. Ghogs we blasted with varmint and deer rifles on sight. If they got under your shed it was a mess.
Put me down for 1 Valley Pocket Gopher. Second set got him. Ain't much to speak of for a pelt to count coup, his hide didn't even cover my spear tip.

I prefer the 'mano a mano' method...






Or the 'Garden Yeti' natural method of rodent control....

As part of my mammology class at the univ of az I had to trap and make museum mounts out of several types of rodents , etc so became a very good rat trapper.

With that helmet and a Rodenator Pro you would have much more fun.
