Description

1. Start a new game with a Bounty Hunter character
2. Choose Special Ability - Set Special Snare
3. Place the pointer at the range of the fireball from your Bounty Hunter

Observed:
Bounty Hunter will attempt to come to the place where you requested and then will attempt to set the trap there.

Expected:
Bounty Hunter will throw the Special Snare to the place where you requested.

Notes:
Internal report #33906 (#33907 for SoD as that is also affected)

The expected behavior is the one from BG2:EE and originally from BG2, where the Bounty Hunter kit first appeared. For some reason, in BG:EE Bounty Hunter's special snares can't be throwable and should be set manually by the character walking to the place first. The mere fact the behavior is inconsistent between BG2:EE and BG:EE can can confirm it's a bug.
This is mentioned quite often in the community, the "throwing" of special snares is regarded as a feature of this kit: https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/17855/please-stop-fixing-questionable-bg2-related-things, https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/40608/whats-the-best-thief-kit, https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/61738/bounty-hunter, https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/61347/bounty-hunters-wanted
