Beastmasters Hunt: The Crane

General Discussion
Anyone else get abyssmal drop rates on this? I've killed 40 cranes and got 1 feather so far.

Plus, they seem to evade if you take them even 10 yards from the walk path.
Was gonna make a post about this. Didn't keep track of how many I killed, but by the time I finished, I had 41 wild fowl meats in my inventory. Please tell me this is not working as intended, and if so, it's not a daily. Also, anyone know what you get if you defeat one of the animals?
The Tiger one is fine, Yak meat drops from nearly every one you kill and they come in packs, I will try the other one and report.
Plus they don't seem to give you rep, so not sure why you would want to do them.

Quest log has it marked as a daily.
I just started it and am having the same issue. I have killed around 30 so far and only got 2 feathers.

After you kill the animal you capture, it pops ups a daily you turn in right there for 200+ rep and the usual daily rewards.
The Crab one seems to be the easiest/shortest. Gather the Hozen, AoE them down, lots of slickies drop.

Yeah the Hozen are the best at dropping their quest items. That crab is a long fight though.
unfortunately this quest chain is bugged on a lot of servers. after turning in the catch quest you can't summon any of the monsters to kill. Blizzard has yet to even acknowledge this bug exists and has such. done nothing. It's been like this for over a week on a lot of server.
It took me long enough to notice that the drop rate was low, but not long enough for me to think that it was excessively low.
I'm in the middle of the Beastsmaster's Hunt; The Crane. I've killed a lot of Children of Chi Ji Cranes and the drop on The Golden Crowne Feather is very low, I may try to finish it but I will probably not do this one again, simply put it is too time consuming, there are more important factions to grind up with dailies, have a nice day and good hunting!
OK, it has been more than two years since the last complaint about this in this forum. And I am now having the same problem. I killed 15 of the damn crane, and not one of the Golden Crowne Feather's dropped. Plus it is so boring.

Addendum: Drop rate is now TWO out of FIFTY.
