I've had an unused bear feeder in my inventory since they went on sale a month or two ago, decided to give it a try and used the first co-ords you've recommended, and i have to say they're fantastic, easily 6-10 bears every time ive checked my feeder at that spot, i almost dont want to try out the other two once my bait runs out! - and i might have to buy another bear barrel so i can keep on at that spot permanently!

So I just wanted to share something I've noticed with, with limited testing though just to clarify. I quit before in 2016 and came back after the feeder changes, just as this new season started. Before I quit I had removed my wild boar feeder and my old feral hog feeder.

Since the new change doesn't have the percentage anymore I figured feeders should work the same anywhere now, however I was getting barely any animals at my feeders, so I tried some of the old 100% locations in this thread and I've had way more success at my feeders and my brown bear barrel that was at 100% before the change still has around 5-7 bears at it each time. I wanna think that the old system of percentage is still how the system determining how many animals to spawn near the feeders, and that the new active/inactive system is just way to simplify it for new players. I remember when I first started out baiting I would only get to like 60-80% after a week and see like 1-5 hogs and sometimes none at it, which is what I was seeing when I would place feeders in random spots after the change.

Pretty much I'm just saying that if you are having a hard time figuring out why you aren't getting any animals at your feeder, try a few of the old 100% coordinates.

I don't think that the old system is still used, in fact I'm pretty sure it's not since I talked to David about it. Of course some spots are still better than others, depending on the distribution of the baited animals on the reserve. If not much bears are around, an active barrel doesn't help much.

Not being in front of my computer so that I can search effortlessly. But. I do think I saw in the update, when the new system was implemented, that the old system would lie as base to the new one. I'm pretty sure. I will have to look that up asap of course. It sure does feels so, since all the good ol' spots are way different than some random spot with tracks. Also, if I remember correctly, they said that it wouldn't be possible to place a barrel/feeder at locations where the animals in question didn't spawn (that may be intended for entire reserves, if wrong, but I don't think so). I've never encountered being ever rejected but maybe I'm not placing stuff "out of the box" so to say. Well, don't take my word for it. I'll try to look it up.

Here are the notes I wrote at the time when the feeder system was overhauled.

The thing that determines how successful a feeder is now is animal roaming and whether animals happen to wander into the attraction radius and become baited. This is why the client will no longer let you plunk a feeder down in an area where the target animal is never likely to roam. In the old system, it was possible to place a feeder and for it never to gain attraction, and never bait an animal, which caused a lot of frustration and waiting around for something to happen. That element has been simplified. You can still place a feeder in an area where only a small percentage of the attraction radius overlaps the roaming zones, which will yield a low return similar to that of the old system, but you will still at least get some baited animals. So placement does still matter.

Well, I put one of my only Hog Feeders in Bushrangers Run at this location and I managed to get a decent boar from this spot.

This is what it looks like from afar. From what I could tell at the time, I believe there were at least 10 hogs at that spot.

And this is the hog I got from it.....

I'm just giving this thread I try. I have no idea what the percentage rate was, so I put down a number I could think of: 75%.
That, of course, might not be true. So it could be anywhere between 25% and 50%. :/
