    If you have not had much success trapping them , think you will have less trying to shoot them

    I remember (a long time ago) the old man sneaking up to a mole hill in construction with the shotgun (12g), shooting at it and then digging up the dead mole

    When I was a lad I once saw a mole come up out of my neighbour's lawn at first light and make for the pond. I shot it with my air rifle as it'd been making a real mess of their garden.

    shot plenty as a lad ,take a fork and spread out the freshest looking heaps in the morning ,then around midday, walk up wind ,dont bang your feet down ,then stand around 4 ft away from the heap being worked ,the mole will make around three lifts shoot on the second lift towards the base of the heap ,the dead mole will proberly only have a little blood on its nose no other marks ,the shock must kill them.

    Check tide times, hunt moles at high tide.
