0005634: Hunters spam with "can`t find path" because of unaccessible creature
Dug to the caverns, killed all wild creatures above and under the ground. The only one remaining is an olm 3 levels deep in the water, far in the caverns. It doesn`t move, unaccessable - hunters spam "cant`t find path". When some other huntable creatures appear - spam stops, until they are killed, then resumes.
Dig to caverns and wait, until only amphibious creatures remain, then get some of them in the water and kill the rest.
hunt, inaccesible creature, spam

Sorry, but i have already solved this problem "manually" (dug from other side of caverns and partially drained them, so hunters could kill this olm. So the save is overwritten by now =(

i can confirm this however my map honestly doesn't have path to underground (open space breach and unexplored above ground cave). my map gets a good number of flying creatures but i don't overkill so there is always something for my one or two hunters to get, thus the spam of this error is only text in my case. slightly related to this and linked related issue, non hunters are having pathing spam issues with general item movement yet that too nothing actually gets interrupted to my awareness.
