Duck hunting bug

Postby Violator31 » September 3rd, 2018, 12:36 am

Has anyone reported this odd bug?
It started when I harvested one of those bouncing ducks. River brought into the blind. As he was headed to the blind I saw the duck flopping all over the place so as soon as it was in the blind I clicked to harvest it. Just that quick the screen changed completely. I thought the game was crashing, then I thought I was underwater, then I realized where I was. Pretty good view, I wish I'd of started the hunt later in the day so I could see farther. When I landed I was about 50 meters away from the blind. I went to it, hit "E" & the avatar jumped in & right back out.

I'm going back to see if it happens again. :lol:

It's a crazy bug, fortunately I never saw that.

I'm thinking its a variation of this bug (Retriever Duck Ragdoll Problem). Instead of launching the duck it launched you instead I'm guessing. I didn't see any other reports of the player being launched instead of the duck.

Yeah that's been around just about as long as the ducks have been out (maybe since day 1). But this one launches you skyward more like this one from a while back.....

I took a bunch of video doing that, but I can't find it right now. I remembered HooCairs had that clip.

I'd rename it a "Super Bonus Feature" and try to do it! :lol: ~ That's a trip and a half! I never seem to get cool stuff like that to happen to me :(

I did some geese last night for the first time in a while and like the feature being able to have the dog jump in the blind with the bird, first time I've used it since the update.
I remember chasing a lot of those zoomy ducks way back when - could find them most of the time.

I'm glad I thought quick enough to hit the hotkey to record. :lol:
A week or so I noticed the dog bringing the bird into the blind. I didn't remember reading anything about that feature being implemented, but I do like it.
*******
And anytime I see those birds start to flop around I try to harvest them quick. When I first noticed it, a long time ago, it seemed like it only happened if there was a lot of birds to be harvested before it happened (before the dogs were introduced I think).
