My impression is that the grizzlies' aggressiveness has been changed at some point. I remember in my first hunts on TGT they were charging you whenever you got too close, sometimes it even seemd like they were actively approaching you beforehand. Now they run most of the time before you can even get close. I remember that for the Halloween mission in which you had to shoot a charging grizzly from up close, I even ran after a fleeing bear (you can still outrun them!) for several hundred meters before it finally decided to attack me. :lol:
Maybe I just had bad luck in my last hunts on TGT, but they surely seem to be very skittish now.

No, you are right Marc. There was a change somewhere, my guess is when the pathing to the player was changed upon attack. But it’s been the same for me as well. More grizzlies run now rather than attack. Hell, I’ve been attacked more by Black Bears lately.

The Polar Bears are the same, so either it's by design or a there has been a collective increase in skittishness. This was requested from the beginning on grizzlies, and hopefully is the way it will stay from now on. It was a sore spot for me. Finally they will be a challenge to hunt.

I notice the same thing, impossible to approach them, even being crouch, they are fleeing to easily now.

I think that it was then , when things changed for the behavior we are having with the Grizzlies now . When they worked on the bears .
I find them hard to come close also .
