Last night or early this morning, something tore the heck out of my front lawn.
They probably put at least 50 holes in my front yard. It isn't moles. Most are big enough to put a golf ball in, 6-7 are big enough to put two softballs in.
I'm thinking it's an armadillo, as a few other neighbors have seen them and shot them recently.

SO, I have no problem shooting them if I see them, But I think they're going to continue to rome early in the morning.
Can they be caught with a foot trap of live trap?

If what ever is digging for grub's or worm's ... Don't see why you cound'nt bait them with a live trap.

Skunks dig my yard up looking for grubs , some years more than others . I would set a live trap baited with table / meat scraps . I am a trapper and have plenty of traps but I never bothered trying to catch any . I just dont care that much about my lawn to bother with that kinda stink if I can avoid it . I mostly water trap for racoon , mink and muskrat so I dont encounter many skunks on my line . Hope you catch'm , let us know how you make out .

I got him!!! Monster armadillo. Multiple gunshots to the head and upper torso.
I've been in sort of a financial rut since my catfishing guide service tanked...even though it never really took off. I'm now going to offer guided armadillo hunts.

I never thought you could BUT if you take a live trap and set it along a fence then put a wing small guide fence out from the trap to funnel them down to the trap they walk right in tripping the trap and problem solved.
The wing can be 8 to 10 inch tall plywood staked, the one I seen the wing was (wood) and was 20 to 30 feet long to get as much guide in as possible. A friend over at Kaw lake got his neighbor to set it up on his lot and caught a lot of them ,stopping the mess they were making.
