The hunter at this building ventures out and hunts animals for their meat. He uses a bow to kill venison and then takes their processed meat to the granary. One hunter brings 6 units of meat with one delivery.
Hunting can be a reliable source of food, but its effectiveness heavily depends on the distance and number of deer herds. Using numerous hunters can lead to over-hunting and eventually removing all deer from the map. Some maps contain no deer and therefore hunter posts cannot be built, although meat is still available in the market.
Deer shot dead will remain in their place for a prolonged period of time. However, they might disappear, as sometimes the hunter will be very slow to reach his target due to terrain and long distance.
- Hunters are among the few workers that can actually defend themselves. They fight with their pocket knife in melee combat and are more resilient than most peasants.
