Moose disappeared under the riverbed

My mate and I were exploring in Slough Creek today and started hunting a cow moose. At first the moose behaved normally, pawing the ground and fighting while she was healthy, then running for a while, and finally standing to fight. The cow moose was almost out of health and I was too, so I ran to a ...

Re: What Other "Quest" Games Would You Like to Have?

I would like a game centered around cougars. Since they can live in both Canada and South America, this would allow for a wider variety of settings and habitats. Cougars are strong and fast, but don't have the stamina of a wolf. So this would require you to stalk deer, try to remain unseen by your ...

How wolf pack size affects the risk of hunting prey

In the same way that moose hunting in the game is more feasible in multiplayer, pack size makes a difference in what real life wolves decide to hunt in the wild. This is an interesting study from the U.S. Geological Survey that details the risk that dangerous prey pose to predators and how wolf pac...

Re: Washington groups to get one-day notice of wolf culling

I did say "may," not "always." And, according to this study, your first point regarding pack splintering by way of culling leading to increased altercations between wolves and cattle does not seem to hold water. From "Wolf Lethal Control and Livestock Depredations: Counter-Evidence from Respecified...

Re: Government: Wild red wolf population could soon be wiped

Since there are over 200 red wolves in captive breeding programs, I think it's best to focus efforts on those wolves rather than trying to prevent the remaining wild wolves from hybridizing with coyotes.

Re: Washington groups to get one-day notice of wolf culling

I would disagree with the idea that culling is always done in the best interests of the wolf population, especially if it's done on the behalf of ranchers who are grazing their cattle on public lands near wolf pack territory. Splintering a pack can actually lead to more altercations with livestock i...

Re: You Had Me at Playbow

How would you evaluate the genetic diversity of a wolf of the opposite sex? I would want to avoid choosing a related wolf as my mate, would the wolf tell you if you're a stranger or family, or could you tell by scent? That sounds like an interesting new component to the game.

Re: When When When?

Since it is August now, I was wondering if the release date is still tentative for the end of 2018? Or are we more likely to get it in early 2019? Either way, I don't want you to rush it.

Re: Male+Female Stat Difference?

There's no stat difference, but it does affect how stranger wolves interact with you. Female stranger wolves will fight longer and be more aggressive towards another female wolf than they will act towards a male, and vice versa.

Re: Are submissive wolves unkillable?

I know that after a wolf submits to me, I can get him/her to attack me again by being submissive twice, so I can get one more attack in. What I was wondering was if a wolf submits to you right away, can you get more than one attack in or just one? And if so, what steps would I have to take?

Are submissive wolves unkillable?

Several of us were discussing which stranger wolves can be killed on this thread: http://wolfquest.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=83789 I talked about the two most submissive wolves in Amethyst Mountain - the grey Slough male with green eyes and the red Specimen male who say "I'm no threat to you" or "...

Re: I killed a Bull Elk for the first time!

Good job on the successful hunt! Your wolf's 100% strength stat also makes him well prepared to go after the bull elk. With high strength, each bite wears down the health of bull elk a little more. In singleplayer I enjoy the challenge of finding and hunting cow moose the best, but I like hunting bu...

You could write down the exchange between your wolf and the stranger from the video, and also say what color the Specimen wolf is. (If you want to share the encounter here.)

Re: What are the most common ways your wolf dies?

Hunting bull elk and moose. Cow moose are a fun challenge but manageable in singleplayer; bull moose are dangerous and time consuming to hunt outside of multiplayer hunting servers. :moose:

Ha, okay so I'm not sure if this counts but.... We were hunting a bull moose, and it was almost dead, so I'm doing my technique for hunting moose. And my mate was coming back from eating a carcass, I was on the other side of the moose, and when she came close enough the moose turned around, I attac...
