Besides the bounty does anyone sell any parts of they're pocket gophers? Skulls have any value? Claws for those of us who don't have a bounty anymore. Selling the carcasses for bait?

Township gets the front feet, landowner matches the bounty and I have a buyer for the carcasses.

Sounds like a pretty good gig. I can't believe the skulls aren't bought they are kind of neat.

A guy could produce as many as he's willing to take the time to get around here. Used to do more of it when I was younger when we had a $1 bounty anymore I don't catch many at all unless they're in a field of ours.
