The missions are a fine addition BUT I would nearly say that this is the only time I would use a Treestand in WRR :lol: :lol: :lol:

Here are all Polar Bear missions:
Spoiler:
Doc here! I've heard some disturbing news that there are some polar bears mauling innocent researchers by northern Whiterime Ridge and I was wondering if you could take a look. Unless those reseachers are throwing rocks at the poor things then I don't see why they would spontaneously attack people. I'll be watching you from a distance to see if you run into anything suspicious.
An Odd Predicament
Description
Let's start with picking up some tracks or droppings. I can't even begin to wonder what's gotten into those bears. I'd go with you but I've unfortunately forgotten or misplaced my arctic gear! I'll try and catch up with you on my snowmobile later once I dig out a spare set of winter clothes. Good luck out there hunter!
Objectives

Locate 3 Polar Bear tracks from the same animal.

Rewards

100 gm$

Suspicious Findings
Description
*Pant* *pant* For some reason I apparently also lost the keys to my snowmobile but I've managed to catch up to you on foot! I've forgotten just how beautiful this reserve is on sunny days. I'll take this track data back with me to the researchers' lab and perhaps we can figure out what's going on. Perhaps you can go on a hunt in the meantime? I think it would do you some good to get refreshed on bear huntin'.
Objectives

Harvest an unspooked Polar Bear.

Rewards

200 gm$

A Shocking Discovery
Description
Hunter! I'm so glad I found you. We've gotten results back from those track samples you picked up. Apparently there are traces of tainted fish bones in those tracks and this is causing them to become more aggressive than usual! Someone is obviously up to some highly unethical shenanigans and we need to find this person and send him an aggressive letter of erm... "reprimandation"! That, or just escort him out of the reserve for questioning. First things first though, we need to collect dropping samples. We might be able to find more traces of this poison then the researchers should hopefully be able to come up with some sort of remedy for the poor bears. We need to get to the bottom of this!
Objectives

ID Polar Bear droppings.
ID another pile of Polar Bear droppings.

Rewards

300 gm$

Someone's Prowling Around These Parts
Description
I think we have a criminal on our hands, hunter. I could have sworn someone was spying on me from a cliff by the mountain near Kosatka Harbour. I think we're going to have to lure him out somehow. Why don't you head over there and find yourself a polar bear that we can taxidermy. Then, we will position it in an open spot near the harbour and see if he shows his ugly face. I'll get myself set up by a tower or treestand nearby.
Objectives

First, harvest a Polar Bear with a score of 25 or higher with 100% Harvest Value.
Then, head over to Kosatka Harbour (X: -5.233, Y: -12.676) in Whiterime Ridge in the same hunt.

Rewards

400 gm$

Signs of the Culprit
Description
It seems that our plan didn't work out as I'd hoped. He already knew what we were up to from the looks of it. I spotted him by one of the abandoned cargo ships off the coast, not sure how he even got there to be perfectly honest. I did however notice that he was wearing a lab coat which is sparking my curiosity as to whether the researchers have anything to do with this. I'm going to head back to the lab to investigate. You stay out here and see if you can find any more traces of this unknown culprit. He will probably be going after more bears in the area.
Objectives

First, spot a Polar Bear without spooking it.
Then, spot a Polar Bear without spooking it from a Tripod Stand.
Finally, spot a Polar Bear without spooking it from a Treestand.

Rewards

600 gm$

Making Some Noise
Description
Hunter! I've talked to the researchers back at the lab and none of them know the identity of the mysterious bear culprit. They did find out that one of their lab coats was missing... just like my arctic gear. This is becoming more fishy by the second! That's it! If we can't lure the culprit to us then we will drive him out through fear. Time to bring out your big guns my friend.
Objectives

Harvest an unspooked Polar Bear while using either .45-70 Government, .405 Ammunition or .340 Weatherby Magnum Ammunition.
Harvest another unspooked Polar Bear while using either .45-70 Government, .405 Ammunition or .340 Weatherby Magnum Ammunition.

Rewards

800 gm$

Clearing the Path
Description
Aha! I think that did it, I can spot him with my binoculars making his way for... my snowmobile?! So that's what happened to my keys! Quick, hunter, we need to take the shortest route and catch up with him! I cannot believe he managed to steal so many things from right under my moustache. There might be several angry bears on our way there so I hope you're prepared for a fight!
Objectives

Harvest two Polar Bears within 10 minutes.

Rewards

1000 gm$

In Pursuit of the Truth
Description
Great shooting hunter! We've forced him towards the northern part of the reserve. Let's make our way over and confront him. Unfortunately it looks like there are a few bears in our way so maybe you can distract them while I take a detour and make sure he doesn't find a way to escape. Here, take this other walkie-talkie. I'll notify you once I've grabbed ahold of the one who started this whole bear-demic! Luckily, I brought a trusty pair of premium EHR handcuffs!... or wait, did I forget them by the lodge?
Objectives

Harvest a Polar Bear with one shot under 20 meters (Approx. 66 feet) while it's charging.
Harvest another Polar Bear with one shot under 20 meters (Approx. 66 feet) while it's charging.

Rewards

1200 gm$

Bear-demic
Description
*Pzzt* Hunter, do you hear me? It looks like we have a real dramatic turn of events on our hands. I managed to rip off the culprit's face mask while I was in pursuit. It turns out that this perpetrator was in fact not a "he" but a "she"! Angelica Rodriguez has, once again, returned to the EHR, even after we exiled her. I have no idea what her motives are but we cannot let her have her way! Shoot, it looks like there are several more polar bears blocking your path to her. What on Earth did she feed them?! I only brought my binoculars with me so I'm leaving this in your hands. I'll make sure she doesn't get away in the meantime!
Objectives

Harvest an unspooked male Polar Bear at 100% Harvest Value.
Harvest another unspooked male Polar Bear at 100% Harvest Value.
Harvest an unspooked female Polar Bear at 100% Harvest Value.
Harvest another unspooked female Polar Bear at 100% Harvest Value.

Rewards

1800 gm$

The Puppet (Single Player)
Description
Ohoho! I see you've finally caught up with me, hunter... and Doc. Since you're here maybe you could stop sending me these pointless e-mails and threaten me in person for my "unethical" poisoning of the bears. I'll have you know that I'm not poisoning them but merely feeding them a special recipe of mine. It sort of bends their will to my own so that they no longer need to live their pointless lives but can instead serve under my animal army. You see, I have ambitious plans of taking total control of the EHR and what better animal to utilize than the fierce polar bear? Now then, I'm quite busy so I'll have my favorite personal pet take care of you two on your way out. Adieu!
Objectives

Harvest Angelica's Polar Bear by the peninsula north of Whiterime Ridge (X: -2.436, Y: -12.426) while it's charging.

Rewards

3600 gm$

Is there an error in description of mission 5? It says just:

First, spot a Polar Bear without spooking it.
Then, spot a Polar Bear without spooking it from a Tripod Stand.
Finally, spot a Polar Bear without spooking it from a Treestand.

However, it seems that you should spot different bears, not the same one.
I spotted female bear from 266 m and the 1st task was completed successfully. Then I have installed a tripod nearby and spotted her again from 220 m, she was not spooked but the 2nd task was not completed. I decided that I missed the completion message, so I went ~500 m away, installed a treestand and sit there for another ~15 min until the same bear passed nearby, I spotted her from 66 m this time and 3rd task was not completed too.

Those of you who completed this mission already, did you have to spot three different bears, or the same one works for more than one task?

When a mission says "spotting", it always only counts the first time you spot a specific animal. After you've spotted an animal for the first time, later attempts will never count towards a mission objective. Even if a mission is like this...
1) Find tracks of XY (insert any species here).
2) Then, spot a XY.
...if you've already spotted a specific animal before doing objective 1, the same animal will not count for objective 2 afterwards because you don't spot it for the first time. You'll have to find another one of the same species.
