I no longer have my saves for this game. Try this first:
Best method for tracking the bear:
Go outside, to a place where is enough space for ~15 steps. The scene doesn't really matter.
Input heading(look at your knife) and bear collar id from notes to the triangulation program.
Then Plot 1 -
then take ~15 steps forward -
and Plot 2.
If you still have problems, let us know.
