    I glanced through the hunter and animal threads, but they didn't seem to answer my questions.

    Does having hunting promotions or actual hunters increase your odds of subduing animals you defeat?
    Does the chance of subdual change if you attack or the animal attacks you?
    Does subduing any animals require certain techs?

    I'm not looking for all the math, just a general idea on helping myself capture more. This is a great fun part of the mod, and a very nice prehistoric representation. I want to get the most of it.

    Hunting promotions increase odds.

    There were fairly recent changes that made it so the Hunter line of units capture better via hunting promotions allowed to them that others cannot get. Intuitively, Hunters SHOULD subdue at a better rate, so the changes were made to reflect that.

    If you want to capture animals, use hunters! :D

    The hunting promotion greatly increases the chance of subduing an animal. Only hunter units can get both hunting promotions. The hill and forest promotions give a slight increase. At one time I was considering having "baby animals" which were those captured by non hunters.

    There is no difference between being attacked and attacking an animal.

    Subduing does not require any tech but finding a resource instead of subduing does.

    And what would that tech be? I havent found any resource in the game I'm playing now, but I did in earlier games. I'm in early classical so it should have allready happened.
