WTF ? Moles are not gophers and the person in the video is a moron.
And I feel sorry for moles. I remember when I was a kid in Pennsylvania my uncle put those knife traps in the mole tunnels. That really upset me. When I was 13 on Anna Maria Island, I found a big animal trap out on one of the trails. It was there to trap raccoons. I know who put it there. It was the handyman at the trailer park where I lived. It was one of those spring traps that break animals’ legs. Awful. I took it home. I went back out to play, and when I came back home I found that my father had bashed it in with a hammer.
Those two videos look like fun — how to make a boom with oxyacetylene!
Our method was more boring. We just stuck a piece of flexible conduit on the tail pipe and let it run. Diesel was better to help find the other holes and plug them.
I am shocked that you put this up. It seems out of character, but I guess you also played with fireworks as a kid.
Re: the gopher bomb. I couldn’t do anything like that. I remember when I was a kid, my Uncle Moon put the hose down the hole. I felt so bad. What I liked was when the guy’s yard blew up.
And I did play with firecrackers. They were one of my few toys. When I was little we used to drive to Florida and back once a year. We always stopped in South Carolina to rearm. My old man even let me have cherry bombs. He was nuts. I could have blown myself up.
