Is it nonsensical though? Surely, as the one who's actually paid for the kill in troops, you have the right to it? Why should anyone else have the right to a kill they didn't make?

And, I'd hardly say sending some scouts is Sherlock Holmes levels of investigation. You're checking to see if there are multiple animal drops on the same square.

Shouldn't a poacher want to scout the squares to make sure what they are collecting is actually worthwhile?

Haven't you shown that you want it by going to the time and effort of killing some NPCs? 

Here's the thing, as I have stated, the cost is not trivial. You lose 20% of your armies for an extended period of time and risk the time cost of resurrecting a commander.

The cost of scouting a kill is what is trivial; 10 scouts taking up 5% of your total ability to send out diplomatic missions for a short amount of time with no risk of them being killed by  troops or NPCs.
This is the thread that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friend. Some person started it, not knowing what it was, and we'll continue posting on it forever just because...

+1 It is the responsibility of the hunter to mark his(her) kills. End of.

Given your real life philosophies on the right to retain that for which one has worked... I find that statement amusing.  

Maybe the poacher can make better use of the resources than the hunter?  

I kid.  Let this thread be done now.

Lol, well, if the poacher can make better use they should IGM the hunter and offer to pay the hunter what the hunter currently receives... problem solved...
