In the hunt example given in the rulebook, the hunters kill a horse (big game), and that attracts a pack of wolves. The rulebook then goes on to say that the wolves are small game, so a trapper alpha would give a bonus fighting them.

How is it derived that wolves are small game? They have the club symbol, not the thin spear symbol. Are all predators small game? That seems counter-intuitive to me. If anything, I'd say wolves are big game. Is small game anything smaller than a human in the illustration? Is this a mistake?

I saw elsewhere it was said that was an error. The wolves are big game. I believe the living rules were updated accordingly.

Not "Big game", "club". As all predators. So only warrior gives a bonus, u think.

Don't forget that there are three biomes:
The club-icon indicates that the wolves and other predators are of the club biome.
Small game is indicated by a small spear that looks, to me, like a sharpened stick.
Large game is indicated by a larger spear, looks like it has a blade.

That's cool. I get that. It's just that there was a discrepancy between the rulebook and the cards.
