Weekend Plans, “Great green gobs of greasy, grimy gopher guts”

At the risk of sounding all Bill Murray via Caddyshack, this weekend will be my first experiment with trying to snare the gophers in my backyard. Previous attempts at trying to get them to walk into a beer cooler laid on its side and nibble of some radish leaves attached by rubber ban to the prop stick failed miserably.

My two favorite Youtube videos on how to lay out the trap are John in the Forest and these two English kids.

If I am lucky enough to get one then I will have skin it and cook it. I plan to either make stew or cook them on the grill.

Maybe I should watch Caddyshack again for inspiration.
