This profit rate assumes sending 3 big game creatures into hiding within an hour. It also assumes both a fully upgraded hunter lodge and bait boxes. Without these, profit rates will decrease due to slower catch rates + banking.

Due to variance in monster spawns, (1/16 chance for double encounters and 1/160 for triple), as well as anywhere from 5-7 instances occurring before sending a creature into hiding, this method may vary. Experienced players will likely be able to clear 3 monsters within slightly less than an hour.

When starting an instance, withdraw 6 of the necessary bait. Inventory should always be prioritised to handle a double encounter (8 logs, 6 vines), as these encounters increase gp/hr rates, but will prove much more difficult without anticipation. Likewise, it is highly recommended that in the beginning of an instance, you first make 18 spears. Then, randomly pick one of the available frog types and make 3 poison spears of the same colour and proceed to gather logs and vines to make the traps. With an upgraded hunter lodge, this gives you a 50% chance of killing the creature on the first try. In the event that you picked the wrong colour, fix the traps that broke, and tip a few more spears--enough to deplete the creature's hp to zero. Skin the creature, deposit your loot in the bank box, and start again. Now that you know the 'correct' colour, on the second instance, prioritise tipping the rest of your spears before gathering more logs/vines, as the frogs take a few minutes to regain their colour.

For most Big Game Hunter creatures, bladed dive is exceptionally useful in going from trap to trap, and surge is great for evading a monster's colour-zone. One may find it useful to put bladed dive, surge, freedom, and anticipation keybound on an action bar, as they will all likely be needed for best results - especially in a triple encounter.
