When you see gopher holes popping up in your yard, you'll want to have one of these on hand. The Victor® Easy Set® Gopher Trap effectively kills gophers without the use of chemicals or poisons. The trap features galvanized steel construction for superior strength and durability. The trap’s narrow design with short base allows for easy insertion into gopher tunnels and keeps moving parts completely below the surface, safely away from children and pets
Victor® Easy Set® Gopher Traps are easy to use and come fully assembled and with illustrated operating instructions on setting and placement. As the most reliable gopher trap on the market, you can rest assured that your yard is safe from the damaging effects of gophers.
Gopher trapping can be done at any time of year, but generally is easiest and most effective during Spring & Fall. Once gopher activity is detected it is important to move quickly as pregnant females can be caught before giving birth to her family.
Traps are most effective when placed in the gopher tunnel and with 2 traps back to back. The hole should be covered up with dirt so that it appears as if the trap is part of the runway.
When used correctly, traps produce a catch within 48 hours. It is best to move the trap to another location in the runway if you do not catch a gopher in this timeframe.

I have found that this item is the best way to get gophers. I have a dog so can not use poison to kill them. I use the traps over again.

If you can locate the gopher tunnel these traps will catch them........finding the tunnel is what takes most of your time.
My favorite trapJanuary 01, 2014
I have been trapping gophers on 120 acres of sandy land pastures for more than 40 years and have used several types of gopher traps. The Victor Easy Set gopher trap is by far the best gopher trap I have ever used. Not only is it easy to set but it is highly effective and very economical compared to other traps I have used. I absolutely love this trap and would recommend it to anyone needing to control gophers.

Have used Victor gopher & mole traps my entire life. They are easy to use and work great. I have taught "novice trappers", ladies, & others how to use these with instant success.
Highly recommend vs. Sweeny trapOctober 08, 2010
First time trapping, local hardware store had Sweeny traps. Purchased a set and was unable to set. Returned them and bought pair of Victor - NO problem setting. Set at 10am - had gopher in trap at 2pm. BUT just FYI I purchased a pair at Farm and Fleet for $7.99.

These traps are easy to set and very effective. I caught my first varmint within 24 hours of purchasing a pair of these traps. Recently I saw an online review saying that the design was flawed and these traps don't work well. Fortunately our gophers haven't seen that review, and just this morning an Easy Set Gopher Trap caught another one.I must say that the instructions leave much to be desired. Once you figure out how to set them, the traps are very easy to set, but the illustrations that accompany the instructions are undecipherable. I will create and post a YouTube video soon to show how to do it.If you are looking for inexpensive, easy to set and effective gopher traps, look no further. RESPONSE FROM VICTOR PEST MAY 29, 2012 Thank you for your online review submission. The Victor® Easy Set® Gopher Trap (model 0611) is a great trap to take care of gophers terrorizing a backyard. The sturdy materials are strong enough to effectively trap the gophers yet the narrow design allows for the trap to be placed in the gopher tunnels away from children or pets. We are pleased to learn about the success of your trap and look forward to your YouTube video. Please do not hesitate to contact us at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) with questions.

Stephan is correct. Traps work but instructions are worthless.February 23, 2013
The traps will work but the illustration instructions are almost worthless. I'm headed for Stephans YOUTUBE video from here. Be sure not to handle the traps without gloves and therefore leave your sent on the wire frame..
