And they’re loose.

fools_announce380

Dear Hunters,

It has come to my attention that some –redacted– have escaped from –redacted– and managed to make it to our Evergreen Hunting Reserve. While this situation is –redacted–, we encourage you to remain calm. Specialists from –redacted– are gearing up as I type to help us bring things back to normal. Of course, they are unable to give me an exact timeline as to when the problem will be cleared up but they assure me that by EOD Monday, April the 4th, the situation will be resolved.

Apparently, it all started with –redacted– and since the person in question –redacted– naturally it follows that –redacted– and that’s how it was. I hope all our loyal hunters can understand that –redacted– was a freak accident, unlikely to occur a first time, let alone a second. All means will be undertaken to ensure we don’t have a repeat of –redacted–.

Fortunately, this recent incursion is only on 3 reserves: Logger’s Point, Bushrangers Run, and Whiterime Ridge. We have elected not to close the reserves, but use all caution when hunting in these areas. They’re loud, you should hear them coming. The other animals don’t seem to be much bothered by them, so your hunting will be largely unaffected. Like any wild creature though, they can and may attack you, but they don’t seem very aggressive. Doc’s been getting in their faces all morning and they haven’t eaten him yet.

By reading this message, you agree not to sue, spread rumors about the EHRCA and its employess, or attempt to sell these, er, interesting creatures on the black market.

Be careful out there, Hunters.

-General Major Petersen, acting EHRCA President

Cheaters Beware

sheriff_message

Howdy Hunters,

We’ve heard some concern from our community that cheaters aren’t being banned or even investigated when they’re reported. They are. If you want to check, you need to search the name of the hunter concerned. If you use a link or bookmark, it will take you to that hunter’s page as it was when you saved it.

Leaderboards were being rather slow to update with this, so we’ve implemented a system to clean up more efficiently. Make sure to give that a chance to work as well.

And remember, it might look like fun to mess around with a hack or mod, but it will earn you a permanent ban from the Evergreen Hunting Reserve. If Buck doesn’t get to you first.

Happy Hunting

From the Community

2021-10-05_updates_805x380

Howdy Hunters!

Our update this time is focused on our community. A few months ago we asked you to come up with some bundles you’d like to see in the store for the 3 Reserves that didn’t have any Loadouts (Timbergold Trails, Whiterime Ridge, and Piccabeen Bay) and to submit some competitions that you’d like to see run. The bundles are available in the store, and the comps are being introduced as we finish testing them.

✅ Check out the Loadouts on the Bundles page in the store
✅ We’re starting with two extra community comps per week (Mondays and Wednesdays) and we’ll be adding more to the schedule as they’re ready.

As usual, let us know if you come across any problems with the fixes.

We’ll be back soon with more, look forward to it!

Grab the Update HERE on Steam.

Happy hunting!

Something Weird…

Howdy Hunter

There’s something strange in Bushrangers Run and Val-des-Bois, but all we have is one blurry photo. We might have to ask you for help, hunter.

Game Update: Puma

puma_game_update_steam

Howdy hunters!
The time has come for a new game update! A major one this time, as a new species is being introduced to the Evergreen Hunting Reserve.

Ladies and gents, please welcome our new addition to Timbergold Trails: the Puma! (aka Mountain Lion, aka Cougar, aka Catamount etc. this animal has about 40 names in English alone!)

The majestic feline has been spotted in the mountains north-west of the reserve and sometimes in the hills south of the river. Be careful though, as occasional attacks on humans have been reported!

Together with the new cat, a few new items have arrived in the Store to help you hunt this elusive predator:

Puma Scent Spray
Puma Electronic Caller Add-on

Message from the Sheriff

sheriff_message

Howdy Hunters,
Sheriff Buck Williams here.
It has come to my attention that during the Happy Holidays 2020 event a small minority of cheeky players has not been very… hmm… sportsmanlike.

Being a man of law, I am rather annoyed by that, as it’s not fair to other players who are hunting with skill and integrity. And when I am annoyed I tend to resort to my .44 Magnum.
So I took my trusty revolver and traveled to Hemmeldal with Chloe, my scent hound. She’s been trained to smell cheaters. Together we have been searching the leaderboards and removed more than 20 cheaters, just today. And by removed, I mean permanently banned. Never to return to the Evergreen Hunting Reserve again.

So I just wanted to reassure y’all, Chloe and I will keep checking the event leaderboards as well as the final winners.

That’s all from me folks, enjoy your hunt!
Yours,
Sheriff Buck Williams of Timbergold Trails
