Good luck taking one down by bow... You'd need one of those Japanese longbows. Trics are pretty well armored.

You could probably do it with enough bows...but why do you need 12 tons of meat?

This is the same methodology I employ whilst conquering dick, with my mouth, on the dick. I rip the head off with my teeth then suck on the succulent shaft meat.

The main reason I want Jurassic Park style cloning to get going is not to make a theme park, but to taste those critters. I wonder if it's red meat like ostrich or white meat like chicken, or gamey like pheasant.

And clone me a mammoth, dammit, I want to taste one of those too. Our caveman ancestors sure loved them.

I don't get why they'd pull the head off first, when all those nutrient & vitamin packed internal organs are now easy to get at.

Unless...

Unless they took the heads home as a trophy.

That's it. They lined their caves with the heads of their conquests. Maybe they brought an extra juicy head home just for the kids.

The deadline to apply for Fark's 2013 Triceratops tag is Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012, by 7 p.m. The online service allows payment with a credit card (VISA and Mastercard only). The cost of the hunt permit-tag won't be charged unless the applicant is drawn.


A 2013 hunting license is required to apply for the Triceratops draw. Licenses may be purchased at Dinosaur Department, license dealer, or through the draw application process.

Printed copies of the spring Triceratops draw information booklet and application form are now available at the Dinosaur Management offices and are expected to be at hunting, fishing, and Dinosaur license dealers statewide by the first week of September (Cretaceous Time Zone).

Spring Triceratops hunts are not limited to tags issued through the draw process.

For those Triceratops hunts, a nonpermit-tag may be purchased Dinosaur Managment offices or at license dealers. Nonpermit-tag Triceratops hunts are range specific and include: archery-only spring Triceratops, juniors-only shotgun Triceratops, archery-only spring boar Triceratops, general crested Triceratops, non-horned junior male Triceratops, general spring female Triceratops (non-rut), and archery-only spring female crested Triceratops.

A change for 2013 is that the statewide bag limit for Triceratops is now two Triceratops, per calendar year, with no more than one Triceratops, taken per open area as defined in each Triceratops hunt number. The bag limit may be filled in any combination of permit-tags (draw tag or first-come leftover draw tag as long as they have differing hunt numbers) or nonpermit-tags (over-the-counter tag). No more than one permit-tag shall be issued per hunter through the initial Triceratops draw. Triceratops hunters can refer to Order 3 (spring Triceratops) in the Triceratops draw information booklet.

And remember, no matter what, Stay on the Path. Don't go off it. I repeat. Don't go off. For any reason! If you fall off, there's a penalty. And don't shoot any animal we don't okay.

And clone me a mammoth, dammit, I want to taste one of those too. Our caveman ancestors sure loved them.


In my experience (not that much, but I've been hunting a fair amount, especially since I moved from NYC to CO about 2 years ago) there are 2 main factors behind the gaminess of animal meat. First is what it ate: deer that live on a soybean farm taste far different than those that live near a swamp or eat a lot of twigs and acorns. Second is how quickly it is cooled down and cleaned: the problem with a lot of pheasant is that many hunters carry them around in the back of their vest for a few hours (often on days that are 50-70F) while still whole until they finish their hunt, and don't clean them until they get home.

I went on my first duck hunt today. There was a couple inches of snow on the ground so we were able to ice them down within minutes of shooting them. I'm already drooling thinking about the 3 dinners coming from the 6 I got today...do we have a FARK game recipe thread anywhere?
