Hunting/Tracking If a PC would like to go hunting have them roll a d100 and compare the roll to the chart below. 1-10 tracks of a tiny creature are seen 11-21 tracks of a small creature are seen 22-37 tracks of two small creatures are seen 38-48 tracks of a medium creature are seen 49-59 tracks of two medium creatures are seen 60-68 tracks of a large creature are seen 69-78 tracks of two large creatures are seen 79-84 tracks of a huge creature are seen 85-90 tracks of a gargantuan creature are seen 91-100 nothing is in the area

Once you know the type of tracks they see, use the tracking chart below from the DMG for tracking DCs. If the hunter wishes to reroll on the hunting chart they may reroll once every 10 minutes, but if they choose to reroll instead of hunting the first set of tracks rolled the previous creature may still be in the area.
