Scent hound dont bark/find dead animals

Postby LeffePeffe » July 9th, 2018, 10:13 am

This has occured in several singel player games lately.
Happened several times this week and last week.

Scenario:
Dog tracks wounded animal all goes good.
But when he comes to the dead animal he do not bark as he use to.
He just runs around looking for tracks and gives the lost track question mark.
I seen him run over dead animal twice and continued to "track" invisible tracks and then lost track and returned to me.

Has never occurred for me before and starting to show up around the patch with german pointer.

And happened to day as well (after the small patch)

Dog is level 22

If you are kneeling, the dog will always ? and return to you. It doesn't want to bark when you're kneeling. I don't know if this is so it won't spook game (it doesn't anyway) or just because.

Does it do this when you're standing, too?

It do not matter if i stand or kneeling.
Today it barked 3 times out of 6 so today it was 50/50.
But it behaves strange in many ways now sometimes it run of to totally wrong direction and also has gone out of border.
Then comes back after a long time.
Has never done that before.
That happened twice last night and once today.
