I have major Gopher problem and my attack dog does not seem up to the issue any longer, any recommendations?

Quite a few rabbits as well, one of them nearly lapped her.

I was thinking of a high velocity air gun?

I feed a family of four (plus 2 cats and a dog) for about that amount each week, and we certainly don't eat beans on toast!
