Well I got some three cinch traps and am having better luck with them so far. Got one over night but the other two were dry. Will try different locations and see how it goes. B.

When trapping any type critter, if it works keep doing it. Give tunnel traps time to be visited. I go 2-3 days with similar mole traps set in pairs bidirectionally and pull them up as such. If I catch one in five pairs withdrawn I'm doing well. Doubles are rare but I've had a few. There is no battle, underground trapping is a war.

Cinch traps are the way to go for gophers...get about 3-4 of them.

If you are going to leave then traps set and be gone for x days, it's wise to attached a small flexible chain and secure the chain w a metal rod. Otherwise, an animal will pull trap up to get the gopher and run off w them both....good luck !!
