  • Pick out a cylindrical cavity in the carrot with a knife.
  • Strip down a small rocket, removing the stick and any unnecessary paper, and push into the carrot.

    Why even? i know why. because this is awesome. I can see this as something that Bill Murrays charachter in Caddyshack might make to kill the gopher.

    Yes, that might have worked... but the gopher was rather smart.

    I use the model rockets from estes (black powder)
    The so called 'motors' i use (C7-5) are c class and have a 7 sec burn time and then a 5 second delay until hot gas expells up the rocket blasting the parachute out.
    I think the hot gas in the carrot cuases the explosion

    ,,funny rockets, when you mess around with em',
