The difference is that with the old system, the attraction penalty for shooting an animals didn't take effect during the current hunt, so the 250m attraction radius was never reduced until your next hunt. Now, with the new system, the penalty takes effect immediately (current hunt). It doesn't go to zero, but rather to a smaller radius ( 30m maybe), then increases back to the 250m radius during the 1/2 penalty period.

So if the animals flee or roam outside the smaller attraction radius, they don't come back. Even after the 1/2 hour, only random roaming within the 250m radius will attract them again.

This is the reason why I don't use the baits anymore. Fun is going away.

Yep I think a good idea would to have the 250 radius then another 100m radious further out but only maybe 25% of the strength of you get me. I really miss extended hunts at a feeder

Sitting near a feeder in a blind or tree stand isn't really hunting for anything. Whether it's done IRL or this game, it's not hunting, it's showing up. I made the comment because you lamented about not being able to do it for an extended time. Why would you want to?

Not trying to argue, you are free to play the game however you'd like. I just thought that comment seemed like an oxy-moron.

Stan, I have to disagree bud. Hunting is whatever it takes to lure an animal and make the kill. Sitting in a tree stand or ground blind near a feeder is basically an ambush, or setting a trap if you will. It's a popular method of hunting all around the world, and for various species of animals here in the States as well. In setting up a feeder and blind/stand, isn't the hunter already doing his homework to find out the most effective areas to do this? Would be kind of a waste of time just setting up shop in some random area, correct? So yes, it is still hunting, and that's actually the real term for it: stand hunting. You do not have to be stalking and following an animal or whatever just to be considered hunting, bud. I'm sure you know this. Again, it's just semantics my friend.
