Event Timeline

An update on this bug ...

It turns out the shot animal is "dead" in the sense that I can follow it and skin/quarter it - but it doesn't do down from the shot.

Happened to me yesterday.

Shot a deer which casually walked away. Put a further 10 rounds into it's head and it just kept on going.

Others I could kill fine.

Try skinning it while its walking away, let me know if it works
