My newest guy, who has been able to get nothing better than a harsh skin or fur from the few squirrels, hares, and birds he'd trapped, recently chased down a lynx. One arrow rendered it unconscious and then it was clubbed to death. I had a Companion who claimed he had moderate hideworking skills, so, I told him to skin and butcher it. He couldn't do any worse than me!

Anyway, he produced a SUPERIOR skin! I rested up for every step in the tanning process, stripped down, and used his assistance. In the end, I got a Superior lynx fur!

This guy, whom I play as an indentured servant who was marooned in the deep forest far from home when his new master died from a fire (Not all who wander), has had some fortunate occurrences.

In the first village he found, he was asked to supply branches for fires and got the '5 squirrels' reward. Then he found a drowned bear which he skinned. He got the meat and some harsh bear fur armor from the skin.

Soon after, he found a wounded adventurer whose reward was a hidden treasure on an island. Coincidentally, he'd just gotten the 'Punt' quest. Using that punt, he found the island, recovered the rich reward, and turned in the punt. And now he has that excellent Lynx fur.

Just as winter is setting in a dog came and was eating the hare bones outside. I tried to rope the dog but it just growled and eventually ran away. The next day as I check my trap fence I find the dog in a pit trap and try to rope him once again. Still no luck, so eventually I'm forced to turn him into dog steaks. Just as I'm skinning the hide an arrow flies by, then another, then I see a man on the other side of my game fence shooting arrows at me. I leap the fence, he strikes with a knife, I counter blow with my axe and down he goes.

Now I have a nice new northern bow, arrows, and a hunting knife.

Just burn it.(drop some firewood on corpse and start a fire or push corpse on existing fire).

Noticed a goshawk that tried to kill a black grouse lately. It's the first time I saw a predator actually hunt.

Late Soil month. Most game, apart from elks and birds seem to be hiding. Got thousands of feathers, ~1,600 cuts of dried elk, some smoked elk, some more of meat from bears and deer.

Traded stack of winter arctic/fox hides for fine battlesword.
Only game in steady supply are Njerpez.

Went scouting earlier for hunting cabin location in Kaumo lands. Slow progress, over a month but fun to explore in the dead of winter. Left some elk drying there too. Killed the largest bull elk to memory. 354lbs meat weight. Might need to schedule the cabin build for early summer after sowing rye and barley. As a side note, got so many Njerpez weapons and armor; wouldn’t need to hunt, trap or farm for maybe 6+ years. Maybe make a living as a “home guard”, for lack of borders to guard.

Now you’ve taken the step to the dark side and taken life of a fellow human. And made a sizable profit with it. Next try to bag some njerpez, and get really wealthy... with a risk of death, but hey: low risk, low reward.

As for the corpse, most folks seem to pick them up, zoom out to Wilderness Map and drop on the spot for time and nature to clean the mess and leave 4 bones as trophies.
Some collect those bones later and add to their grim trophy pile at cabin site. Or leave them on the spot as reminder where a hostile fighter met, you.

Unless you’re couple days into starving, in that case, you *could* butcher the human remains and cook‘im for dinner.
