Unfortunately, they only satisfy a small portion of hunger, and are gone in one mouthful. Hares are useful if the player is hunting elk, since they spawn quite frequently and are more than likely to appear mid-hunt.
Contrary to popular belief, hares cannot be picked up and carried around. Their carcass will remain on the ground unless eaten.
- Main article: Spawners
Players have discovered pre-defined spawn locations where hare are guaranteed to spawn.
- Bunny flower
- Bunny bush
- Killing hares followed by saving and reloading without eating the carcasses causes an interesting bug. When the game is reloaded, all hare carcasses will be replaced by elk carcasses. There is no benefit to this bug however, since the elk carcass replacements will only be worth one mouthful each.
- Encountered hares are always male. Females are never seen. This is likely to have been a cost-effective option that saved time during development.
