The Hunting Game

BRIEF: A mod which aims to make hunting a much more profitable, viable and worthwhile experience. The prices of animal parts, and the amount of items each animal drops, have been significantly altered to provide a much more realistic experience.

Compatibility patch for Realistic Needs and Diseases[]. Thankyou Marelo for creating this!

Pelt Price Changes: The prices for pelts were pretty unrealistic. Pelts and furs in real life are quite valuable, and this wasn't reflected in the game. These new prices give an incentive to hunt, and make hunting actually worth doing.

Bear Pelt: 50 -> 500

Cave Bear Pelt: 60 -> 600

Cow Hide: 10 -> 200

Deer Hide: 10 -> 150

Fox Pelt: 5 -> 75

Goat Hide: 5 -> 50

Horse Hide: 15 -> 150

Ice Wolf Pelt: 15 -> 150

Sabre Cat Pelt: 25 -> 250

Snow Bear Pelt: 75 -> 750

Snow Fox Pelt: 7 -> 130

Snowy Sabre Cat Pelt: 40 -> 400

Werewolf Pelt: 20 -> 2000

Wolf Pelt: 10 -> 100

Animal Part Price Changes: Again, these were unrealistically low. Although the price changes aren't as drastic as the pelt changes, these alterations will increase your hunting experience.

Antlers - Large: 2 -> 40

Antlers - Small: 2 -> 30

Bear Claws: 2 -> 5

Horker Tusk: 15 -> 150

Mammoth Tusk: 150 -> 1500

Mudcrab Chitin: 2 -> 10

Sabre Cat Tooth: 2 -> 15

Slagutherfish Egg: 3 -> 7

Slaughterfish Scales: 3 -> 5

Troll Fat: 15 -> 30 (Weight changed from 1 to 0.5)

Dragon Bones: 500 -> 1500 (Weight dropped) NEW

Dragon Scales: 250 -> 750 (Weight dropped) NEW

Animal Meat Price Changes:

Clam Meat: 1 -> 3

Chicken Breast: 3 -> 4
Grilled Chicken Breast: 4 -> 6

Charred Skeever Meat: 4 -> 3

Dog Meat: 3 -> 4

Leg of Goat: 3 -> 14
Leg of Goat Roast: 4 -> 20

Horker Meat: 3 -> 12
Horker Loaf: 4 -> 16

Horse Meat: 3 -> 8
Horse Haunch: 4 -> 12

Mammoth Snout: 6 -> 30
Mammoth Steak: 8 -> 40

Pheasant Breast: 3 -> 3
Pheasant Roast: 4 -> 5

Raw Beef: 4 -> 8
Cooked Beef: 5-> 12

Raw Rabbit: Leg 2 -> 6
Rabbit Haunch: 3 -> 8

Salmon Meat: 3 -> 4
Salmon Steak: 4 -> 6

Venison: 4 -> 16
Venison Chop: 5 -> 20

Animal Drop Changes: Most of the animal drops in the game just didn't make any sense at all. For example, for every Sabre Cat you kill you would get either 1 eye or 1 tooth, even though every cat has two of each. These changes are to correct such errors. These are the new additional drops:

3 Tusks from every Horker

2 Eyes and 2 Teeth from every Sabre Cat and Snowy Sabre Cat

1-4 Sets of Bear claws from all types of Bear

4 Tusks from each Mammoth

1-3 Cups of Troll Fat from all types of Troll

1-5 Sets of Scales from Slaughterfish

7-10 Toes from each Giant (Weight reduced from 1 to 0.5)

5-10 Feathers from each Hagraven

10-14 Claws from each Hagraven

6-10 Feathers from each Hawk


5 - 8 Pieces of Horker Meat from every Horker

3 - 4 Pieces of beef from every cow

3 - 4 Goat Legs from each Goat

3 - 4 Pieces of venison from every Deer and Elk

3 - 4 Pieces of Horse Meat from each Horse

2 Pieces of Dog Meat from every Dog (because they are ribs)

2 Breasts from each chicken

2 Legs from each Rabbit (only for ones you kill, not hanging ones)


*Items gained from hanging dead animals (pheasants, salmon) are limited to 1 by the CK. Just think that if someone had already killed it then they probbably took some of the meat too!

*Fixed the vanilla bugs relating to the death drops of horses and goats not calculating properly.

Compatibility patch for Realistic Needs and Diseases[]. Thankyou Marelo for creating this!

Also, the armour I am wearing is called the Hunter Archer Armour[] and it can be found on the nexus.

The only issue I see with this is the comparison. It is stated in this mod's description that the real-life value of pelts and hides is not represented well in Skyrim, however, what needs to be kept in mind is that while in real life hunting is a well-practiced sport and occupation, it is much more significantly filled job in Skyrim's lore. Many more people hunt in Skyrim than in real life, and as a result, more pelts are on the market, and, as you can probably guess, their value goes down as a result.

I'm not saying 4KINGS is wrong in upping the price, it still seems rather small, even in how the world of tamriel works (Like omg a werewolf pelt...WTF Y U SO CHEAP) , it's just wrong to compare it to earth's economy. I dunno, maybe I'm overthinking it.

But in any case, I give this mod a pretty high rating, I like what it's trying to do. Keep it up! I just might tone the values down a little is all!

Question: Does the mod changes daggers into enchanted daggers? I'm using a lot of mods and one of them makes daggers always beeing powerful enchanted weapons. But I prefer to use normal weapons... Is it this mod that changes every dagger in the game?

Awesome mod, makes hunting worth it, especially as an Archer..

Tried this mod for the first time the last few days and the first thing that came to my attention is, that even though I killed about 20 goats non of them dropped even one goat horn for building houses. I think this comes from being a mod for games without DLC's?

I removed the mod and found out that it affects the buy and sell side. Prices are considerably low without this mod. So I'll just raise my speech skill then.

Regarding the "Pelt Price Changes", does it affect the buying price of pelts only and not the selling price? My value when selling pelts is way below the new amount. But I guess that has something to do with my speechcraft skills. I'm still in the early part of the game.

There is a conflict between this mod and hearthfire that removes the chance for goat horns on goats killed. Also for anyone who wants this mod on Skyrim SE just move the .esp file from your Skyrim Data folder to your Skyrim Special Edition Data folder and check the box in your plugins list from NMM.
