I have one as I bought for test. I practice in my yard with it. One mole so far. I think it is best for the deeper tunnels.


once you go trap, you never come back

I was hoping someone would know something about it. It brings up a lot of hits on a google search, but you are the 1st I know that's tried it.

Someone else on here likes to use them. I remember seeing them state it in a post in one of the mole trap topics. A competitor in my area uses them because I have seen them in a yard, so they must work or maybe they arenít good at catching moles lol.

Every time I set one it falls over even though I try to build a mound around it.

That sounds like a pain, having to build a mound around it.

"Someone else on here likes to use them" Thats probably me, they are a good trap, there is a learning curve for sure, but no more than the out of sight or steves traps, all 3 work well in their own right, one place they shine is getting under a sidewalk, you can set them at an angle....I use all 3, the gopher hawks are a quick set up, which sometimes makes me lazy and in a hurry, I always remind myself not to rely on one trap alone, there are always so many variables in conditions, I will say for deep tunnels, it is a little easier to get down there with the gopher hawk, but if you catch one, you still have to dig it up

Interesting. I too like to have a variety of traps in my arsenal. I may have to get 1 of these. Thanks for the feedback so far.

Bought some to try. Might work ok on small mole but not good for our Townsend whoppers.
Bad design far as I am concerned.
Snare cage has three wire hooked to a ring made from light round stock that is on the bottom. The wires are equal distance apart where attached to the snare ring. One will always block the tunnel stopping the mole from getting very far into the snaring area. Trap would be better 4 wires. Two on each side of ring for stability leaving a good crawl through area to get the mole in a better killing spot. Wasted money for me.
Trapline are my go to now as outright are junk now.
Deep runs get dug out with a shovel. No problems. Easy and fast.
