Never trapped a mole in my life until recently but now finding it strangely addictive... almost therapeutic.
This being said getting used to the probe and trying to avoid split or curving tunnels has generated some colourful language.
Anyway - having some success with half-barrels but I seem to be missing a few that appear to get to the trap and poke up infront it judging from the hole. The traps arn't backfilled so i assume it me not taking enough care to lay it but despite best efforts it still seems to be happening. I realise the art of mole catching is cloaked in secrecy but any help would be appreciated.
I've tried the search facility but the quantity of threads immense and i'm too green to know the terminology.
