Frank Macera says...Just out of curiosity, has anyone tried a wombat in distress call a wombat in a cage and a game trail camera set out for a thylacine? Reconyx Hyperfires are no glow 1080P high-definition resolution and 3.1-megapixel images. Triggers in a 5th of a second. Expensive at roughly 600 usd, but really great cameras. Moultrie makes another cheaper alternative around 150 usd. You got the three things a predator looks for, live pray, sound, and an easy kill. I use a similar technique for trying to figure out where the coyote population has sky rocketed on my property and where they need to be thinned out, only I use a rabbit call and a motorized stuffed rabbit in a cage....with rabbit scents.
Ebony Bourdain says...Thank you! Thylacine awareness! A worthy passion. Great networking. Great graphic logo, too. XOEbony
Heather Wolf says...I'd first like to say thank you for your time and effort in tracking down evidence of living thylacines. Don't t listen to the person who said quit poking at poo in the middle of nowhere. If anything, poke more poo. Collect as many samples of hair and bone you come across. Leave no stone unturned.I really enjoyed your episode with "Terrence" the cardboard thylacine cutout. If you don't yet have one, try to get a three dimensional, to scale model of a thylacine made and conduct another test. It is the only way to "ask the animals" and they have no reason to lie. Keep doing what you're doing, the truth is out there.
Steve says...Hi GuysFirst of all can I say I really appreciate the work you are doing as it is very credible and like your scientific and sceptical approach. I have been interested in the Thylacine for a number of years and I like many would love the notion of a small number of taz tigers to still be at large.It has crossed my mind that the state government gave protective status to the taz tiger shortly before the last known thylacine died in the zoo. Do you think this adds validity to the possible chances of others having survived as I assume the would have been no financial gain and risk of prosecution for the trappers. therefore the very few that could have survived would not have actively been hunted. Just a thought but wondered if that could add weight to the very slim chance that a small isolated community still lives on to this day.Thanks Steve
john geraghty says...Hi Guys. Big fan here. I have a few questions. Have you ever talked to Col Bailey about where the best place to find thylacine is? Also-in that recent article it says the old timer suggested using a hurricane lamp in a field. According to Tigerman they are very curious. So why not set up camp and make a decent sized camp fire. Put some trail cams around the campsite-some near and some far and just camp for a while. If they get curious they will come to you. Especially if you use the wounded animal call. Finally-where's Wild Bill? Haven't seen him in a video for a while. Thanks guys, John
