I'm with you Len. So frustrating to be crawling toward a nice Billy Goat and all of a sudden the damn birds start flying around. They have no place in the game, IMHO.
To be honest..... One day when I was hunting elk and wolves in a tree stand to the south east of the TgT east starting cabin....Some ptarmies flew around my tree stand and the size compared to the background ones on every map and the flapping noises they make made me feel like I was really in a tree stand. It was a great experience but there's only one spot on the game where you can get that. Besides the ones on TGT you can easily max them out spawn mashing with a .22, even on TgT there's a couple nice spawn mashing places.....after that there's really no fun in hunting them. I like shotgunnin the runners when I spook some I didn't know I was running up on but as far as hunting them, pfft, forget it. I'll max em out and quit killing them. You know the species sucks when they aren't ever gonna release a competition for it They are literally smaller than the rodent rats that spawn that you can kill but have no value. Would be nice if they added that flapping sound to each ambient bird noise, really added to the simulator experience sitting in a tree stand with birds doing circles around your stand that you can hear.
I have a TS on HEM that literally has flapping birds that you can hear, flying around it constantly.
