Just saw this on the news-don’t know if I agree or disagree with cloning-lots to both sides of that coin but it is amazing technology

I am still not sure about an elephant - but I really want to hunt a mastodon.

Or a saber tooth tiger

We could come up with a whole new Big 5

On the ferret, since they use DNA to clone a second animal would it be considered interbreeding if two of the cloned animals had some little ones?

I am positive I saw one in southern New Mexico years ago and contacted 2 biologists but they were sure it could not be a ferret. They did not even want to come and look at the area. What else could look like a black footed ferret? They both said it was probably a ringtailed cat but I trap and caught 30-50 ringtails each year, I know what they look like.

I don't know why your sighting would be implausible. They were re-introduced in northern Mexico, just south of New Mexico. But I'm not a biologist by profession.

T-Rex, what a trophy. Maybe one day, movie will come true and we will have a new title under AH.

I learned a long time ago that not all of the game and fish officers know just what is in the area.

I spotted some mountain goats in some ledges on a mountain in Utah and when I talked to a officer he didn't know anything about them.

Imagine the future, 1000 years from now.
Wild animals extinct, except in last three of the world national parks, and numbers declining.
human population reach 50 billion. First deliveries of food grown on terraformed Mars started.

On Earth, Estate hunt booming, by use of cloned game, males, from t-rex to roe buck.

Agreed. Been there and done that several times.

What I've heard is that in Australia they were looking at the option of cloning for the extinct Tasmanian Tiger. Do not know if its true.

I read somwhere, on some of hunting shows a taxidermist had full mount of sabre toothed tiger, by combining the skin of some of the extant cats, plus sabre toothed tiger scull with teeth. it looked great.

Some years ago my sister and family visited me from back east in early April. We did the tourist thing up our local ski hill to see what 15' of snow looks like, this place is world known for its endangered marmot zoo and recovery. Gondola to top and walk down, imagine when my brother in law says WTH are the beavers doing on the snow??? Wow there are 6 marmots playing, sis takes a crap load of pics, some with the gondola pole # in the frame. We get to lodge and I tell marmot people we saw marmots. They told us there are no marmots on hill, basically I was crazy as there are no wild ones and captive ones are in their concrete environment. After sis showed them the pics, all hell broke loose, panic, scientists on atv's racing up hill and copies of all pics demanded.

Here are the "scientists" doing research and they did not know a colony existed outside the zoo area within a KM. Dumbfounding. So I agree many specialists, CO's and those who are supposed to know do not know.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
