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.



It's already there. :)

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.


Good one :D

I agree and would work great and be fun for fox and dogs
\However just about $6.50 real Canadian Dollars is a bit much

yeah this is a funny one for me, ive wanted a MPD for so long since i first started watchin the "dirt naps" youtube videos i was instantly hyped when i seen it, then when i seen how it worked i was a bit bummed out to the point i may not even buy one because its just not what i wanted it for :/. A bit more utility would have been nice as some have pointed out it is just a $6 convenience to not have to get out the tree stand. you still have to either have a tree stand in one of the handful of prime spots for bow hunting or stalk and place when a call is heard. id have like it to have had an attraction rating not a distraction rating. my hope had been for something that had a wider attraction radius than a standard call to reach out and pull dogs in from a decent area and a cool down to balance it. i wanted to ambush hunt, set up a blind or a tower a good range out from the MPD and use a rifle. and bring in enough foxes over a few in game hours(not millions but enough to equal the average stalk and shoot hunt) but as it stands i think 1 shot from the rifle will spook all in call range and the hunts over for that setup and i think id still be more productive wandering about and listening for calls.

ambush hunting is my style well that or waterfowl which is a very similar concept, i get set up watch some tv on my 2nd monitor and just chill and wait its how enjoy thehunter i get bored quickly spot and stalk hunting as youll see from my hunt history times. i feel like i have to give thegame 100% of my attention and constantly be fingers on mouse and keys. with the bait overhaul this got hindered a fair bit with the insta attraction penalty and now that this is out and its not what id been hoping for i feel like my options are running out or atleast thinning out.

idk maybe if/when they overhaul the predictable caller system things like this and the turkey decoys will have more value for me. im now gona bang on and wish for an electric call box :D, and cross my fingers it works like what i had in mind, and hopefuoly create the setup i imagine

That's the main "problem" with the MPD. The way the devs implemented it seems to be quite realistic, but the predictable calling system takes a lot of its advantage - just because you might as well call and back up 20 meters and know exactly which spot the fox or yote will be heading to.

The turkey decoys - on the other hand - have a bigger advantage. You cannot simply use the turkey caller and move back a few meters - because the birds are slow and the attraction of a call only lasts for a very short time.

You're complaining about $6, and then show an item that retails for $450. I think you just want to complain.

you been serious?

used as an example of what i would like to one day see in game i dont own it irl and i wouldnt buy it if they added it to the game at that price. funny old thing mate but ill tell you incase it slipped passed you their is a significant difference between real life prices and video game prices mate. dont know what your gun safe is full of but mines not $6 blaser R8s or $7 parker pythons. wish it was

i also didnt complain about the price i stated its a $6 convenience never said it was a good or bad thing.

I think it would be good if it worked on a ''line of sight'' type attraction, 50m radius is kinda small. I understand the whole game balance thing, and I think the caller would me more effective to call animals that cannot see the decoy, but having them almost on top of the decoy before it become effective kind of makes them a bit limited IMO.
