Meat quantity, value, and weight are lower that realistic to compensate for how quickly players can hunt. You can earn a modest hunters living. Sabre cat meat and clams pay more. I need feedback to adjust these please. Recipes removed from the basic cooking station can be made in Hearthfire ovens. It is rare for people to cook stew in an oven but this mod is for people that don't care about stews and don't want to eat for buffs.
Sample Bear: 60lbs prime meat, 2 gold raw, 4 gold cooked, total 120g to 240g
Reasonable pay to kill and carry the weight. Reduce 50% for starting speechcraft.
Sample Chicken: 2lbs prime meat, 1 gold raw, 2 gold cooked, total 2g to 4g
The inn might charge you 6g for a pound of cooked chicken
Sample Horse: 70lbs of good eating, no one will buy it, no one sells it
