If this is the case we go back to the drawing board. Image

Which means if we look closely their appears to be water in the background as well as feathers everywhere from it being attacked?

I think about everyone would be okay with medium to large game. Just NOT birds.


Fallow deer are probably the most requested species aside stuff like mountain lions. Im not sure what type of "bigger game" you are talking about since we have a species weighing 1200kg :lol:

Yeah, Skunk, Beaver i'd be fine with i'd prefer more deer though. By the looks of it, we are either getting a bird or a predator animal.

My bet is Ruffed Grouse - tail feathers of the male below his 'spread' have the coloration displayed, as well as the breast feathers.

Besides, I'd love to see them presenting to the female and having the 'drumming' and thrumming sounds.

I'm going with a goose species - Or it could be a prairie chicken, I'm more concerned where it will be not so much what it will be.

And here's the hints from TK in the live stream:
https://www.twitch.tv/videos/246900193?t=00h21m45s
My guess will stay at some kind of partridge. Red-legged partridge perhaps?
But the really interesting question for the moment is rather on which reserve it will appear on, since we now know it's a bird. Assuming only birds have feathers. ;)

So we know now its 100% a bird... Most likely will be some sort of bird similar to ptarmigan... I am at least hopeful for a snow goose. Now that we know it's not a medium size game.

I really hope it’s not another stupid ptarmigan. God knows the ones we have now are the most annoying things ever, not to mention the constant flapping. And they’ve basically ruined Ibex hunting and the Bighorn hunting, from my own experiences hunting them before and after. Well, the way I see it, it’s not something I’ll be interested in more than likely. Maybe hunt em a few times and that’s it. But we’ll see. I always hold judgment until I have tried something.
