    I wish I had a picture of my grandma and her cats and dog – she and my gramps were nut farmers, they hated squirrels and gophers. She would put a hose into one gopher or ground squirrel hole, then stand over another hole with the shotgun (1912 Winchester) about 4 inches off the ground, the cats and dog would take positions at the other holes. She and the cats would just stand there, and wait. We kids would get bored and run off to play, then all the sudden, BOOM!

    Ah, the good old days.

    • Back in the day, grand parents didn’t call animal control about yard or garden pest. They took care of the problem in their own way(s).
