You mean those striped gophers?  When I was a kid, they had a bounty on those little buggers in town.  They'd tear up the football field.  So we'd go down with our 22s or air rifles, setup under the bleachers and wait for them to come out.  They'd scatter for cover at the first shot of a 22, but wouldn't be gone long.  I switched to the Daisey 880 and could pick off a few before they started getting nervous.  You'd see them slinking along the ground, give a little whistle, one or two would stand up to see what mde that noise, and WHACK!

Have no idea if they taste good or not.  You'd need a whole mess of 'em for a meal.  We'd just take a bucket full up to the City Clerk and get a dime a piece for them and then toss them in the city dumpster.
I refuse to get into a battle of wits with an unarmed person.
