Gopher Getter Gopher Trap: this is the premium grade DK-2 Wood Box Gopher Trap from P-W Manufacturing. Find a fresh mound and dig open the tunnel entrance. Place trap flush to the tunnel opening. Pack loose dirt around the base of the trap. Be sure to leave the light hole open -- so the light and air will bring the pocket gopher back to plug the hole. When they push dirt against the triggering mechanism they wil be captured.
