I don't buy them, but every once in a while when I trap some fresh, I do skin them and use the fur to tie up some amazing dry flies and nymps!

DT, you still mole trapping? I am getting ready to start snaring and trapping coyotes out east, heavy so PM me with your phone # and if I get any mole calls I'll send them your way! With all this rain and 50 degrees temp, it's bound to happen!

A lot of my customers, right up to the point they call me for an effective program.

Meaning you don't think it's effective?.... or the customer put it in the wrong place or placed it wrongly?

LT.... Probably a combination of the two: Poor customer placement (just like when they try trapping) and a somewhat less than advertised effectiveness of the product. Not saying it doesn't have ANY effect, but I know several of my customers were applying it correctly and had no measurable results after 4 to 6 months of use. One guy swears the moles were pushing the "poison worms" back out the top of the runs exactly where he placed them. I couldn't verify that, but this guy is usually not a "story teller" type. As with most chemical programs, it is often impossible to "measure" the success. Trapping, on the other hand, allows the customer to SEE dead moles and notice the damage ceases instantly following the captures. Even if the poison worked..... it is not a "cure-all" method. Neither is trapping, BUT trapping is much more environmentally friendly and no more costly than continuously re-applying chemicals. Just my humble opinion.....

Do you guys have any advice on how to properly set a Victor O.O.S. Mole Trap? I opened up the top of the tunnel, placed the set trap in with the jaws properly spanning the tunnel, then I placed the dirt back over the trap with the top sticking out of the ground.

So far the little bugger has popped up on either side of the trap but has yet to fire it.

Any suggestions?

So you want the part of tunnel you dig out to have dirt fall back in, thus blocking the tunnel?

How do you set your tunnel traps Steve?

Steve:

On my out of sights, I have been bending the lip outward
to give it a hair trigger effect. Seems to work, also have
grooved a cork down the center and taped around trigger.
Been having good luck with your traps just ordered more, like
the idea of less chance of injuring dogs or kids. That out of
sight makes me nervous. Have !M liability embrella but sleep
better with your traps out there.

I have a rather ignorant question, but it seems ya'll would be the ones to know. Is there a difference between moles and pocket gophers? We have a pile of the pocket gophers down here and the only way I have heard of controlling them is early morning shooting. Any info is appreciated.

Thanks, I will have to save up and get some to try out here in the yard. I think it would be best to learn how at home before I start charging folks.
