The Macabee Gopher Trap was devised on the practical principle that a pocket gopher pushes dirt in front of it while tunneling. Patented in 1900, this trap has come to be known as "Old Reliable" with professionals, farmers, and homeowners for over 100 years.

The Macabee gopher trap is manufactured from the finest quality high carbon spring steel. It can be set quickly and easily by hand, and can be placed using two different methods. A single trap can be placed down into a lateral tunnel, for captures when the gopher is exiting the tunnel. They can also be placed in pairs, back to back, by digging down to the main tunnel.

Reviewer: (Dundee, OR)
I have trapped countless gophers with the macabee traps (old and new designs) and have had very good success on small to medium sized pocket gophers. This trap is one of the fastest to set, is light, and works on new gophers as well as the old smart ones as well. I do have two complaints about this trap. First, the jaw closing mechanism doesn't always close tight one some of the older traps or it grabs part of the belly of the gophers on occation rather than the chest. I have lost some gophers to these traps. The second complaint I have is that the jaws do not allow for grabbing large gophers. These traps have worked well in south central Oregon (Lake Country) but in northwest Oregon (Yamhill county) I have had very little success because the gophers are very large. Other than those two complaints I would highly recommend this trap for small to medium sized gophers.
