First time hunting in WRR in a while and right away got a CALL from a Dall Ram..my first harvest. Is there a reason that Bighorn are silent in this game. They are sheep, just like the Dalls. Just like the Feral Goats that you can see for miles, you give them a call. And now Dall Sheep that you can see for miles, you give them a call. Yet Bighorns are impossible to see, and NO call so we at least know the direction to stalk. Now you have to wait until you hear the sound of hooves, and they could be from as far away as 75 meters. By the time you stalk that distance without ever seeing the animal or its tracks, it's gone. How about a call sound for Bighorns, EW?

That was my first reaction when I heard a call from the Dall -- :lol:

nice sheep, but please don't forget the slow inventar/map load bug. I can't play BRR, TGT and WRR after the TTG release.
Please look the video here: viewtopic.php?p=854813#p854813

Thank you


No news on this one, sorry. We are investigating it but are not able to pinpoint the issue so far, sorry about it. We will continue digging into it.

We thought it would be a good opportunity to give you a chance to cool down a bit, provided it's hotter where you are than it's in Stockholm (did I say snow?) :evil:

Quick question, has anybody come across any female Dall Sheep? In two hunts for them, myself and a friend have only seen males, even in a small herd of 3-4. Friend killed a very small one that we both thought on sight was a female, but turned out to be a male as well. Is there something wrong here or am I just getting extremely lucky in only getting males?
And by the way, I really like that the males do fight, saw a couple duking it out. However, there is no sound when they fight. Should probably be looked at.

I tested them out for a 20 minute quick hunt yesterday and got 4 females,...

Probably luck of the draw.............. :lol:

Anyone else experiencing "body hits" without even showing the impact when it absolutely should be vital hits? (Please spare me any comments about aiming, it's just unnecessary).
I would love to see the .338 Lapua Magnum! (And an African reserve of course...)
