    ... So there I was, in the kitchen at Blacthorne's, when a comely lady strolls in with a glint in her eye and a bottle of .... wait wait, wrong story!

    So last night I took a break from the usual dungeon chest / unravelling grind to try out the Huntsman's Quest. After failing to bag a nice grizz, I decided my last try would be a Cougar. Well if the forests of Britannia are any indication, these are endangered species. I walked for leagues and leagues, but no cougar. Just as I began to lose hope (read: interest) , I spotted the sleek feline. A flamestrike later and I had a 205 stone beauty!

    As of last night I have the lead and I'm stoked. Now I have to ask all of you to please not hunt anymore cougars this month :) If you feel compelled to do so, I know a lady at Blackthorne's I can introduce you to instead....

    Can't promise you I won't, but made a deal with myself, I need to loot enough gold, before I get new permits, Tina Tink keeps eyes on her gold and won't let me use it.

    Nope, you're not the only one. It's like gambling with really crummy luck.

    isn't there a bonus or something with animal lore?
    or is there a way to lore animal and get a comparable size it might give?

    Nope. They said they wanted to work in tracking and animal lore, but didn't want to make so people with those skills would be the ones winning every time. Wanted everyone to have a chance at it, but said they would consider expanding the system with skill tie ins and more targets if people liked it.

    I do like everyone to have a fair chance as long they do have gold in their bank.
    I do feel it's a little to expensive, special for young players. Also the Tax kit do cost 300k on Siege, that's insane.
    I would like something like getting the first 5 permits a day a account for 1k each and if you get points at the end of the month, add 2 free Tax kits to reward choices so also a newbie can make a trophy for him self and one to sell or give as gift to someone. So if you choose the horn, you will get 2 Tax kits too.

    Exactly Freja. Awarding at least one free tax kit with each reward would allow every winner to have their trophy mounted. For Siege, 300k is a significant lump of gold.
