Well I had a AZ ground squirrel move into my yard, dug under the wall and moved in behind my mellon patch. He started eating my wife petunias and that called for some serious trapping effort. I've never trapped ground squirrels before and don't have any cage trap or conibears left so dug out a trick from the past. In the dead of winter when the water was frozen really tight we would set our beaver traps where the mink would jump over or off a log/branch in the snow. When they landed on the pan it would work like killer trap and catch them just behind the shoulders.

With the ground squirrel half the side of a mink I dug through my traps and found an old #2 B&L cast jaw jump trap and set it right where he was jumping over a cactus paddle. Bingo, the next morning he was mine, dead in the trap with the jaws right around his shoulders.

Mine has a little more rust on it than this one.
