    I was up a little over 1,000 when i got one. On the bright side you wount have to hunt for Boura Pelts any time soon. I was able to make a lot of needed pieces of armor and jewlery by the time I got a shield. And now that i have one it is sitting in a crate, doing nothing but taking up storage.

    Not to encourgae or discourage, I actually received two shields in the first few hundred bouras I did, within the week following the SA release. My focus at the time was pelts, I had no idea what the shields were worth, and first impressions were that they weren't going to be so uncommon, so I actually sold one for way cheaper than I should have. Since then I'm unsure how many bouras I've killed actually looking for more shields, but it's well over a thousand without another shield. I'm not sure if it's a RNG issue, if the drop rate was adjusted, if drop rates are working as intended, or if it's just another of those things that's broken along the way. Hope that helps, and good luck in your search!

    I'm sure I've killed more than 1000 High Plains Boura and I've never received a shield. RNG sucketh.

    I was just killing those today.. I didn't know they dropped anything special. However I did notice that every one of them had pelts on them.

    I think it must just be RNG. A friend and I hunt the bouras together and I've not gotten a shield in weeks and weeks, but she has gotten one on each of the last 3 times we went out. So they are out there!
