Dessert - Kanin Pot Pie
Description

As for dessert, I was thinking something a little more international. Let's go for a pot pie made from elegant European Rabbits! I would recommend a small caliber for these guys, preferably the .17 HMR, but you're welcome to use any gun. Just make sure you nail an acceptable harvest value. I'll need this order quickly so the rest of the dishes don't come out cold!


I suggest differently. I have not been able to achieve a 100% harvest in any shot with the .17HMR. So it is back to the .22 for me.

After a few shots, I find the .17HMR much more accurate and nice than the .22 ... I think I will use the .17 much. Congratulations for this upgrade!

I have the same problem. I wanted to try this with the ptarmigan I have in one of my lodges, but to no avail :(

It's working for me now. I tried about an hour or two ago, and now it's working. Try again, and i hope it will work for you to ;)

Anyone else expiring trouble with the .17HMR's ability to take down fox's? I have now shot at 3 fox's - and i'm careful with shot placement. I shot where i use to (lungs/heart) - but with the .17HMR i only get "body" shot. Very little blood, and the fox flees all over the map. Anyone else expiring this?

Prior to this update I was able to pose in front of or next to a trophy while inside the Trophy Lodge, press the "F2 key" and take a profile picture. After this update that feature doesn't work anymore in side the Trophy Lodge.

I have exactly the same problem. Two foxes hit in the heart, I believe, from a distance of 25 to 30 meters, and left in good shape, far, far, far ...
