The MTD's will give us a variety and should be fun to use.
Nice update.

When I read this, I couldn't help but think of this quote

Mayor Vaughn: [to reporter] I'm pleased and happy to repeat the news that we have, in fact, caught and killed a large predator that supposedly injured some bathers. But, as you see, it's a beautiful day, the beaches are open and people are having a wonderful time. Amity, as you know, means "friendship".

Nice update and glad the patching is still working for the most part. Just the fact that you fixed the issue quickly means you are on the correct path.
The above statements are strictly my opinion, and should not be taken as fact, even if I believe them to be true.

:lol: ... Is it "Jaws Week" already? :lol: ... I didn't even need to finish reading it when I started laughing.

OK, so this flippy tail feather thing - Does the animal go to it like turkey to a decoy or go to my spot of call? I don't have an issue with spooking yotes as I hunt them from the trees - So, for this to be of any value to me, I could stay up in my tree and call while my flippy thing is 30m away and I won't have them under my tree right? Distracting them is of no concern to me, moving them away from my tree so I can shoot them is. And actually, with fox more so than yotes, I live in the brains of yotes and already know what they're going to do, Fox on the other hand are sneaky fellers.

Does anyone know if the issue with foxes is for both species? ie. Red and Arctic.

Gotta say I absolutely love these, I bought the bundle.
I really enjoy hunting coyotes in this game, passed the 4000 harvested yotes for this season yesterday.
Yotes stay at the flag long enough to take a couple with a bow before they come to the tree.
Now if I could only get EW's launcher to work it will be a good day. Had to play through steam today.
Thanks for this addition to the game.

I don't understand the issue with yotes coming to the tree stand. B.D. (before decoys). I hear a yote call while sitting in a stand, or if I have one with me, and the call is over 100 meters, I pop one up. I just walk out 30 meters from the TS and call from there. They come to the call spot. Never under the TS. What am I missing?

Calling from the tree stand they come to the bottom of the tree.
It's not so bad after they (EW) increased the angle up and down for shooting.
Gotta be careful not to shoot yourself in the foot :lol:

I don't think you're missing anything. Your method works just as good, but the MPD is more convenient for permanent setups or generally when sitting in a tower/blind/stand for a longer time because you don't have to leave the stand to call. It could be a nice addition to the Golden Treestand for example.
