    We shoot gophers up in North Dakota when we go in the summer because my uncle is a farmer and those gopher holes can break a cows leg. So we use to use a .22 but this time we got to use a .410 to we shot a bunch of gophers and almost a jack rabbit.

    That looks a lot like a prairie dog. I only know from TV. We don't have
    anything like that in Alabama. Justin you ain't going to eat one of those
    things are you?

    They are a nuisance for sure.

    You can catch them with a piece of twine if you have patience. First time I tried it I jerked so hard that the gopher flew though the air and landed in my lap. Not sure who was more surprised. :)
