Hunting is the ability to capture wild land animals and birds for food. It involves knowledge of different types of game and hunting methods, including trapping and shooting (or spearing). Hunters can also skin animals for their fur or hide and similar animal products. The Hunting skill includes knowledge of the value of game meat and animal products and the best market for a particular good. Hunters are also able to track down and eliminate predatory animals. Hunting lore allows a character to determine the types of game that can be found in an area based on climate and environment, identify the best method for catching a particular animal, and the ability to locate the best hunting spots.
