Shanti Posted July 17, 2015 Share Posted July 17, 2015 Tonight, while hunting over hill and dale, I suffered a sprained ankle and more than just a touch of frostbite looking for the corpse of a pesky wolf who had the nerve to run away from me after I repeatedly stabbed him in the neck. After riding out a blizzard and returning to the forest for another fruitless search, I had a quick thought:Wouldn't it be wonderful if crows would circle any dead corpses left on the ground? It would certainly make it easier to find a new corpse, if the crows could be seen (and heard) circling in the trees. It seems to me like crows would actually prioritize a fresh, tasty kill over the frozen corpses which must be truly frozen solid and mummified after a few days.This could help with concerns Bill brought up about how it can be devastating to loose a kill when a wolf or a bear runs off wounded. Rather than needing the animal to respawn quickly, how about a handy, black and noisy beacon to hover over it? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
