Caught my first gopher of the season. I work out of town, so I set my trap last Sunday and checked it Friday night when I got home, even before eating dinner. The hole was plugged, not a good sign. I dug the trap out with a stick, hoping something was at the other end. Got one! With the cavity I made in setting my trap, it was packed with dirt, so there is at least one more out there. Like last year, I caught a few at the beginning of the season, no activity for a while, then more activity. I use black plastic to cover the ground which I then plant corn thru. A bad sign was when one of the holes I plant the seed thru had dirt pushed out of it.:( At least I have a fair corn stand, even with the cool and wet weather we have been having.
