This article is about the technology in Age of Empires II HD: The Forgotten. For the technology in other games of the series, see Hunting Dogs.

Hunting Dogs is a technology in Age of Empires II HD: The Forgotten that can be researched at the Mill. Once researched, Hunters and Fishermen work 25% faster.

When The Forgotten was first released, Hunting Dogs was free for the Magyars, but in patch 1.1 that bonus was taken away. As of patch 2.2, Hunting Dogs was removed from the technology tree entirely.


  • Hunting Dogs in Age of Empires II uses the same icon as its Age of Mythology counterpart.
  • It was removed because competitive players thought it was too rewarding when Boars and Deers are spawned near the player's base, and forced them to build a Mill much earlier.
  • It is the only non-unique technology whose effects were removed from the game entirely, rather than being granted for free when reaching the requirements. As a consequence, even through hacking, the technology does not increase gathering rate.
