Hunting in WolfQuest
Locating & Taking Down Prey
Elk (your favorite prey) are usually found up on the ridges of Amethyst Mountain during the autumn and move to lower elevations in the winter. Herds vary in size from 8 to 30, and include a bull, cows, calves, and spikes (young bulls). There are also small bachelor bull herds. Elk calves are the easiest for a lone wolf to tackle.
Once you’ve found a herd, you’ll need to scare them into flight, as trying to bring down an elk in the middle of a herd that is standing its ground is unwise. Running at the herd, growling, and other aggressive actions will increase the chances of the herd beginning to flee. As a lone wolf, you aren’t all that scary, and larger elk herds might refuse to flee.
