I am at a disadvantage due to medical problems but i'm really struggling with big game hunter. Been locked out and restarted and have now given up with zero kills. I'm not fast enough and the time scales are just too tight to collect all the logs and vines, fletching the spears, getting the frog poison, making the traps, arming them, doing the pressure plate then having to do it all over. For me maybe more places to hide would make it actually doable because as it stands I will keep trying to get one of each kill then never go back.

It's definitely not just you having a problem with BGH. I could appeal to the common sense of real life (you would have everything ready to go, before baiting any trap, duh), or just that the tall patches of grass, resources, etc, are too few and faaaar between. Somebody turned the "excitement" knob up to 13, but turned the game design down to about 3.
Make the stuff first, then lay down the bait, then run for tall grass (hopefully nearby).
At least let us make poison spears, and maybe the pressure plates and traps, before the bait is layed down!

P.S. Manta rays are coming up on 4K, gonna get very interesting very fast.

According to jagex it's a "intended" feature as it as a achievement associated with it.

Bladed dive/surge/mobile perk


Okay, there's an Achievement, very nice, bravo...
but designing the whole instanced hunt around a single achievement ...
doesn't that sound like something a total half-wit would do?

The thing that bothers me the most is that there's no real "tutorial" the game just tells you go do it.
