The Long Dark Wintermute – Hunting Deer without a weapon (Finding food for Grey Mother)
At one point you need to gather food for Grey Mother. Hunting deer for meat is the quickest way to get Grey Mothers quest done. The problem is, you don’t have the weapons to hunt deer. But you can use the wildlife to do the job for you.
All you need is a flare or a torch and of course a deer. Good spots for finding deer are the church or the farm house. At the same time you will also find wolves close by. Make your way to a deer carefully and try to scare into the direction of the wolves. Once a wolf has spotted the deer, he will track it down and kill it.
Keep your distance while the wolf follows the deer and use their tracks in case they run out of sight.
The wolf will immediately start to eat the deer and reduce the meat you can harvest. So make sure you find the wolf quickly and steal the deer.
The best way early on is to craft a torch or find flares and throw it at the wolf. This will scare him away most of the time and you can pack in a huge amount of deer meat.
