No, I've never tried to cultivate 'em. In the previous two seasons I refused to even try to start patches vis-a-vis stem-butts...only because I was afraid that if I caught the cultivation bug, it'd have the unfortunate consequence of curing me of the hunting bug. But this season things changed. The years long California drought seems to have finally caught up to the great majority of patches in the Bay area. And this, in turn, brought out into relief a tiny minority of patches that performed exceedingly well...even with barely a drop of rain. A few such patches I found this season...and indeed we're looking at one right here.
As a result, this season I've developed a keen interest in the possibilty of propagating these apparently drought-resistant strains. I guess it doesn't really involve 'cultivation' in the strict sense (for I wanna do things using zero sterile technique, for example.) But one thing that might end up interesting is my soon-to-be attempt to fruit some of 'em indoors.
