Some dogs have what we call a lower food drive - they are just not as motivated by food as they are by play. It's not that the drive is "satisfied" with the food and they drop out of drive, it's that the motivation to stay engaged for food rewards just isn't as strong.
Pretty insightful though that you figured out how to tap into your pup's prey drive to train him - this is what handlers of working dogs do with pups to build their drive and work ethic.
