Last summer the gophers went wild and I have been trapping them every time I see a new burrow pop up. Yesterday I finally trapped the one that I have been trying to capture for quite a while . This gopher had the biggest tunnel I have seen and the gopher was huge. Almost big enough to ride it seems. Anyway in 2011 my wife brought home a libtard dog. I have been showing him gophers every time I trap one but he just sniffs it and licks it. So since the gopher was so big I gutted and skinned it and the moron dog still didn't eat the guts or the body. Which leads me to ask has anybody eaten gopher? I tossed the body before I thought about eating it. The meat is real red no tumors etc. and when I cut open the stomach it had green mush in it . Well duh Gophers are vegetarian . So are they good to eat?
