    Scientist are now able, through cloning, to restore some species of extinct wildlife, including mammoths and saber-tooth tigers. Forget Jurassic park - it's too far back. I would like to see them restore the Irish Elk, with its 12-foot antler spread. What species of wildlife would you like to see them bring back?

    Not for sure how far back you want to go but the carrier pigeon comes to mind.

      I can't imagine a shoot for the passenger pigeon when the flocks darkened the skies, but I don't think today's environment would support them. Hunting the short-faced bear would be the ultimate, and maybe the final, thrill. A dirk toothed cat could have a place on my wall right alongside the aurochs.

        Megalodon meaning big tooth, is regarded as one of the largest and most powerful predators in vertebrate history, and likely had a profound impact on the structure of marine communities. Fossil remains suggest that this giant shark reached a maximum length of fifty two to sixty seven feet.

        Now do you want to go swimming in the ocean? LOL

            Personally, I don't like the idea all that much. They're gone for a reason, science is starting to mess with forces stronger than themselve with this one. Again, just my opinion.

                The heath hen was eradicated in the U.S. in the 1880's because of excessive market hunting. Its habitat remains largely unchanged.
                That would be welcome addition to our game selection.

                    I was always fascinated by the sabre-tooth tiger. Not sure where to put it though... perhaps Idaho where it probably wouldn't do any more damage than the wolves are doing. I sure wouldn't want it in my back yard.

                      This week was especially heavy on rock songs. I also got stuck in the 80’s. I realized soon into it that by far most of my movie watching was from that...

                      Actually the show itself wasn’t too bad, it was the 5 hour round trip eating up the beautiful day that hurt. I come home from most of them empty handed...
