Trapping pocket gophers

Email

I always enjoyed trapping pocket gophers.

The first traps I used were death-klutch traps. Sometimes I used an old fashioned trap I called a pedal trap. I preferred the death-klutch trap because they were faster to work with.

After I retired from active farming in the mid-’90s I caught about 3,000 gophers during a six year period. I thought trapping pocket gophers was just as challenging and enjoyable as deer hunting or fishing.
