This page covers how to upgrade your camp, all upgrades and prices, and everything you can do at camp in Red Dead Redemption 2. For example, upgrading certain parts of camp will eventually unlock fast travel. Upgrading your camp requires the Ledger. You can do even more upgrading with the Leather Working Tools purchased in the Ledger.

How to Upgrade Your Camp[edit]

One of the most important aspects of the camp is upgrading its looks to get bonus content. Here's how to unlock the Ledger and Camp Upgrades.

  1. Beat the first 5 missions in Chapter 2 to unlock Money Lending and Other Sins.
  2. Complete the mission Money Lending and Other Sins a Leopold Strauss mission, who can be found in the camp.
  3. After completing this mission, you can find the Ledger next to the tithing box to put the camp's money to good use.
  4. Consider buying the Leather Working Tools in the Ledger first (see below).

You can see what upgrades can be purchased for the various tents and wagons in the sections below.

Camp Morale[edit]

Camp morale plays a big part in your life here, even if you don't always see it at work. By donating money to the tithing box, partaking in chores, purchasing upgrades, and completing requests - other camp members will be happier, and donate free items like provisions, ammo, and medicine, and even donate more money to the tithing box themselves.

Arthur's Wagon[edit]

Arthur's tent will be set up next to an adjoining wagon (it's where the main camp icon is on the map). Here you can rest, sleep, and check some of Arthur's personal effects including several photos.

This is also the main place to change your outfits.You'll start the game with only a few basic outfits (unless you've gotten the Ultimate Edition that includes bonus costumes). Note that Coats, Vests, and Boots have associated values for how they perform in hot or cold weather. Since you can also store up to three outfits on your horse (including custom outfits), you should always have at least one warm weather outfit and one cold weather outfit stored that you can swap into when traveling.

Arthur can also do some basic shaving while at his tent. While it won't be as good looking or as thorough as a barber's cut in Saloons, Arthur can at least trim his beard, mustache, and chin - or all facial hair at once.

Behind Arthur's tent is where the ammo supplies are found. When the camp is prospering, you can find additional ammo to borrow when embarking on journeys. Just be sure not to hog too much, or it might hurt the camp's supplies.

Once you unlock Fast Travel you can also access it at Arthur's tent.

At the start, you'll only be able to find Revolver and Pistol ammo from time to time, but once you gain the ability to upgrade the camp, you can restock supplies as needed or improve things by ordering better ammo.

Upgrade Cost Effects
Start Simple N/A Revolver and Pistol Ammo
Improve Our Offense 60 Repeater Ammo and Arrows
Restock 8 Refills currently unlocked ammo

Dutch's Tent[edit]

Dutch has set up his tent in the middle of the camp, and this is where the camp's tithing box is set up near the back. As you perform jobs and gain more money, you should be sure to invest a portion of your earnings to the camp's pot.

When the money stored in the camp reaches higher levels, you'll be able to upgrade individual tents, and even gain the ability to fast travel back to the camp at any time (which is a big deal in a big world with limited fast traveling!).

You won't be doing it alone either - the more you contribute, and the more you upgrade lodgings, the more the rest of your team will want to help contribute and bring even more money in.

Lodgings
Upgrade Cost Effects
Bare-Bone Shelter N/A Basic canvas and old furs for warmth
First Things First (Dutch's Tent) 220 Improves Dutch's Tent, inspires gang to contribute more
Next in Line (Arthur's Wagon) 325 Arthur gets a map, allowing him to fast travel to previously discovered locations, and unlocks grooming supplies

Pearson's Chuckwagon[edit]

Pearson is the gang's cook, and handles food supplies as well as utilizing animal parts to upgrade various items - both around the camp and Arthur's satchel inventory.

You can give Pearson food items, pelts, valuables, and carcasses stores on your horse to increase camp funding, and you can also inquire about upgrades - but you will need to acquire Leather Working Tools for certain upgrades - which can be bought from the Ledger. If you wish to have Pearson craft satchel upgrades, you will first need to unlock the recipe by performing various tasks for the camps, like upgrading wagons or donating specific goods.

Please note that in order to make use of his upgrades, you must first donate the recipe materials to Pearson himself, and they will then be added to his stock when selecting upgrades.

In Red Dead Redemption 2, hunting is about more than just having fun. Arthur Morgan needs to find food to survive, to feed the Van der Linde gang, and to top off his Health, Stamina, and Dead Eye. Beyond food, hunting also provides hides and animal parts that are used in crafting. In a nutshell, hunting is a huge part of Red Dead Redemption 2, and this guide will explain all concepts from basic tips to full explanations on how each hunting mechanic works.

Hunting tips and tricks

During my time in Red Dead Redemption 2, I’ve picked up several tips that I think would help new players just getting into the game. These tricks and hints focus more on best practices instead of in-depth game mechanics, which I’ll also detail shortly.

  • Stay on Your Horse - By staying on your horse you get a view from a slightly higher elevation, helping you spot animals at distance with more ease. I like to have my horse move at walking speed so that I don’t spook animals. If they do get spooked, however, I’m on horseback and can chase them down.
  • Use Your Binoculars - Open your item wheel and look for your Binoculars. You can ride around with them in your hand. Use them to spot animals, then study and reveal information on your prey. You can even track your target through the Binoculars, identifying the quality of the animal.
  • Always Be Prepared - When I’m on the road, I always keep my Carbine Repeater in my hands. This allows me to quickly get a shot off at an animal that crosses my path. I’m not exactly hunting here, but just being prepared in case opportunity presents itself.
  • Secondary Preparations - If I have a medium to large animal on the back of my horse, I switch from my Carbine Repeater to my Varmint Rifle. This is intended for small game, such as birds, squirrels, rabbits, and others. I can’t carry another deer, but I do have room for a rabbit on my horse.
  • Use Your Dead Eye - By pressing L3/LS + R3/RS while aiming, you activate Dead Eye, which will slow time and let you get a more precise shot away. Use this to hit fleeing prey, or to ensure your shot results in a clean kill and you’re not ruining the hide by firing multiple times.
  • Getting Clean Kills - If you truly land a clean kill on your target, it will often run a short distance and collapse, slowly dying. If this is something like a deer (not aggressive), it will show as a white paw icon on your mini map. If it's a predator (like a bear), it will be a red paw icon on your mini map. 

Using bait for hunting

Remember that you can craft or buy bait for hunting, as well as use a few other substances to aid you in getting the drop on your prey. The bait will lure animals to a spot where you can kill them, while the Cover Scent Lotion is used to cover your scent while you’re hunting. Access these products in your satchel by pressing and holding right on the directional pad.

  • Cover Scent Lotion
  • Herbivore Bait
  • Potent Herbivore Bait (Crafted)
  • Predator Bait
  • Potent Predator Bait (Crafted)
  • Types of Meat

Meat quality by animal type 

Each skinned animal will give you a type of meat. Each type of meat is a different quality and provides unique benefits to the player when consumed. Look through the lists below for animals that provide high quality meat or better, then try and locate an easy hunting zone for that animal.

Low quality meat includes:

  • Gritty Fish (Bluegill, Etc)
  • Gamey Birds (Small Birds)
  • Stringy Meat (Rats, Etc)
  • Herptile Meat (Reptiles)

Good quality meat types are as follows:

  • Plump Bird (Turkey, Chicken, Geese)
  • Crustacean Meat (Shellfish)
  • Gristly Mutton (Sheep, Goats)
  • Flakey Fish (Perch, Bass)

High quality meat includes:

  • Exotic Bird (Parrots, Pelicans)
  • Mature Venison (Deer)
  • Game (Rabbits, Ducks)
  • Succulent Fish (Salmon, Trout)
  • Prime Beef (Cows, Buffalo)
  • Tender Pork (Javelina, Pigs)

Best quality meats come from some of the biggest creatures:

  • Big Game (Bears, Wolves, Alligators)

Studying animals

One of the most important aspects of effective hunting in Red Dead Redemption 2 is studying the animal before attempting to kill it. This can be done primarily and most easily through your Binoculars since they allow you to stay at great range. Look at an animal through your Binoculars and when the option pops up, press R1/RB to study it. If you then bring up your Compendium, you can find the animal you studied and learn more about it, such as what type of weapon or ammunition to hunt it with. Not only this, but the Compendium will also tell you where to find the animal. 

Weapons and ammunition

As mentioned in the previous section, the Compendium is a great place to read about animals once you have studied them. This is where you can get some hints about what to use in terms of weapons and ammunition so you don’t destroy the hide when you kill your prey. For example, the Compendium tells you to hunt the American Badger with a Varmint Rifle to ensure a clean kill, which is how you preserve the quality of the hide. On the other hand, you should never use a Varmint Rifle on an American Black Bear (because you’re not trying to tickle the bear), but instead the Compendium recommends a long-scope rifle — the exact weapon I used to take down the bear I needed to earn a legendary bear pelt.

Quality of hides and preservation

When you aim at an animal, either through your Binoculars, scope, or just iron sights, you should see a quality rating between one and three stars in the bottom right. This refers to the animal’s hide. One star is poor, two is good, and three is perfect. Take note that many vendors, such as the Trapper, require perfect hides when crafting, so you must target perfect animals, and get clean kills (see Weapons and Ammunition above), to get perfect hides. Perfect hides also sell for considerably more money than poor quality hides.

Tracking Animals While Hunting

When you look at an animal through your Binoculars, scope, or iron sights, you’ll often have the option to track it. When you do this, you’ll see telltale signs of your prey on the ground in front of you, whether that’s its scent or blood from a wound. However, you can also track an animal by activating Eagle Eye (L3/LS + R3/RS), looking at a scent or blood trail on the ground, then pressing R1/RB to track it. Once you are tracking an animal, keep checking the tracks using Eagle Eye every few seconds. Truthfully, I mostly hunt without tracking, but it can be very useful with small game and snakes. Generally, you don’t lose sight of larger animals, though.

Hunting with Dead Eye

Dead Eye is the time-slowing ability that allows you to land accurate shots in tough situations. This alone is useful, but as you upgrade Dead Eye you’ll gain the ability to see a target’s weak points while activated. This is incredibly useful while hunting, as it lets you know where to shoot your prey for a clean kill, which will help you preserve the hide. Don’t expect Dead Eye to reach this level until late in the game, though.

We’ll be sure to add more to this guide as we continue to hunt. For help with your journey, be it the story or open-world explanation, visit the Red Dead Redemption walkthrough and guide.

Learning how to get Red Dead Redemption 2 pelts through hunting is an optional but incredibly useful skill, helping with camp upgrades, earning new equipment with the Trapper, progressing Challenges, feeding your gang and much more.

There are all manner of birds and beasts to kill and skin, and even some Legendary Animals and Legendary Fish to track down, and if you use the right weapons and the right methods, you can earn some serious dollar. From the right equipment and the nuances of tracking to stalking your prey and making the most money out of each respective slaying.

How to get perfect pelts, skins and hides in Red Dead Redemption 2

Let's get right to the meat of things - how to get perfect pelts, skins and hides. (If you want to know the basics, scroll up and jump to the relevant section.)

To maximise the value of a pelt, you'll need to make sure of three very important factors:

  • Your choice of weapon and ammunition
  • The quality of the animal
  • The type of final hit

Let's break these down further.

How to get use the right weapon and ammunition

Animals in Red Dead Redemption 2 are divided into various categories - from Small to massive creatures like Bears - and you can only achieve a perfect kill (and thus a perfect pelt) by using the correct weapon, ammo type and type of hit.

Though you can technically get a Perfect kill with any weapon (such as repeater, rifle and sniper rifle) but you'll need to have maxed out your Dead Eye in order to get a Critical Hit. Until then, you'll want to focus on the following:

  • Bow:
    • Fatal hit on small animals using a Small Game Arrow only
    • Critical and Fatal hit on medium to large creatures with regular arrows
    • Critical and Fatal hit on medium to massive animals with Poison Arrows
    • Critical and Fatal hit on massive animals only with Improved Arrows
  • Throwing Knife: Critical and Fatal hit on medium creatures, or Poison on medium to massive
  • Varmint Rifle: Fatal hit on medium creatures only
  • Repeater: Critical and Fatal hit on medium creatures only with any ammo (apart from Explosive)
  • Rifle: Critical and Fatal hit on medium to massive creatures with all ammo (apart from Explosive)
  • Sniper rifle: Critical and Fatal hit on medium to massive creatures with any ammo (apart from Explosive)
  • Shotgun: Critical and Fatal hit on massive creatures using Slug rounds only

Thanks to gtakiller0914 on reddit for the help filling in the gaps above.

The quality of the animal

The quality of a kill is affected by two very important (and not initially obvious factors):

  • The health of the animal
  • The manner in which it was killed

In order to determine the health and status of an animal, press R1 / Right Bumper while still hunting and you'll see its current condition on-screen. If its a skinny or ill beast, the quality of the parts you'll be able to harvest will be reduced as a result.

Inversely, if it's a young or prime specimen, this value will be relatively higher. One star represents a Poor quality, two stars Good, and three is for Pristine.

In other words, some prey are better left in favour of a better target.

The type of final hit

Now comes the amount of damage done to an animal in order to bring it down. Remember that kills are defined into three categories - Poor, Good and Perfect - and these gradings work in conjunction with the quality value applied to an animal prior to its kill (see previous paragraph).

So if you make a Poor kill, even a Pristine animal will produce a Poor carcass. But, if you want a Perfect carcass on a Pristine animal, you'll need to pull off a Perfect kill.

The quality of the kill comes down to how you use your bow to apply one of three kinds of specific damage to an animal during a hunt:

  • Normal Damage - when you hit an animal anywhere other than its vital organs or critical organs
  • Critical Damage - caused when you successfully strike a critical organ such as the lungs or stomach
  • Fatal Damage - made when hitting an organ such as the heart or brain (usually leading to a one-shot kill)

Maxing out your Dead Eye ability (you can do this by completing 'Goodbye, Old Friend' in Chapter Six of the story) will reveal these organs to you and increase your damage output, making hitting Critical or Fatal Organs much easier. But keep in mind that making such precise hits is incredibly hard on small critters and is a rule best applied to larger (and thus higher value) game.

There are two other important factors to consider when preparing to make your kill: distance and the angle of penetration. If you reduce your scent, approach upwind and use scenery to reduce how obvious Arthur is to his prey, you'll be able to increase your proximity.

The closer you are, the bigger your target will be, as well as reducing the chance of an arrow missing or dropping. However, using a scoped rifle with a high velocity cartridge can produce similar results at a distance.

Penetration is one of the most common reasons for an arrow not killing an animal as expected, so it's an important element to consider. So if you want to be sure of a headshot, you'll need to aim from the side in order to increase your chances of striking the brain. Avoid larger bones where you can and reach those precious organs.

With this, you should be able to get Perfect Pelts, Hides and Skins. If you want to know which of these 'massive' creatures are, read on...

How to transport pelts and body parts in Red Dead Redemption 2

Each animal produces its own unique set of body parts, depending on their size and species. And each one has a particular use. You can cook meat at a campfire, which turns it into consumable food, while items such as teeth and claws and be used to fashion Talismans (which help reduce effects such as Dead Eye cooldown and weapon degradation).

An animal carcass or the body parts harvested at the site of a kill can be sold off at most general stores, butchers and Trappers. You can also bring them to one of your established camps and handed over to Pearson who will then use them to unlock camp upgrades and satchel upgrades. You can also donate them to the gang camp to increase your food stores.

If you do skin a carcass without taking it to a store / trapper / camp, then the body parts will be added to your satchel for use later on. The following animals are considered 'massive' and will be too large to transport:

  • Alligator
  • Bear
  • Bison
  • Bull
  • Cow
  • Elk
  • Ox
  • Moose

When a kill is made, you'll now have the option to transport the carcass away from the site of a kill, but only if they are small enough. The smallest - birds for example - will be transferred to your satchel, while massive ones cannot be moved and will need to be skinned and looted where it was slain.

You can load up your horse with more than one carcass, but there is a limit to how much your poor horse can carry. You can either stow one medium and one large carcass, or the pelt of one massive animal. You can also opt to stow one moderate animal carcass on either side of your mount. You can also choose to stow multiple pelts as long as they're moderate, medium or large in size.

Body parts taken from an animal that is rare to a respective region will net you 25% more in value when sold to a store in that region, than it would in one where it's common. And if you own the Ultimate or Special Edition of the game, all sales will have a +10% modifier as standard for every part/pelt/carcass you sell. This is automatically active when you redeem the Special or Ultimate edition code.

How to prepare for hunting for pelts in Red Dead Redemption 2

Though the game teaches you how to hunt and track animals as part of the main story - the Aftermath of Genesis and Exit Pursued by a Bruised Ego missions respectively - there's always much more to learn.

Much like Far Cry 5 before it, animal pelts and parts have a quality level that can drastically reduce if you're careless with how you dispatch each creature in your sights. This means you can't just throw sticks of dynamite at deer and expect to have a pristine pelt at the end of it (even if it sounds like a lot fun).

So, in order to maximise the quality of your kill, you'll need the hunters weapon of choice: the bow. This weapon is unlocked in the Chapter One mission Aftermath of Genesis. It's quiet and powerful enough to kill an animal in one shot, if you're close enough and hit a vital organ.

Red Dead Redemption 2's hunting bow supports six different types of arrow, but only four of them apply to hunting:

  • Arrow (purchased, regular ammunition)
  • Improved Arrow (crafted, +15 damage)
  • Small Game Arrow (crafted, -20 damage, very effective against small prey)
  • Poisoned Arrow (crafted, +5 damage, ideal for bringing down larger prey)

Other weapons will also work - as our how to get perfect pelts, skins and hides explains.

To improve your success while on a hunt, it also helps to have two other consumable accessories with you: baits and cover scents. You can buy these from stores across the map, with the latter increasing the chance of attracting animals in a given area, and the latter reducing the amount of scent you give for a limited time (making it far easier to approach them from downwind, or if the wind suddenly changes mid-hunt).


The PC version has seen several new additions, including a photo mode. If you're looking for more help in general, our Red Dead Redemption 2 mission list walkthrough can help provide pointers with the story. If you want to find things, we can point you in the direction of Dinosaur Bone locations, Dreamcatcher locations, Rock Carving locations and World Champion Cigarette Cards locations. On the map front, we have Killer Clue Piece locations, High Stakes Treasure Map locations, Jack Hall Gang Treasure Map locations, Red Dead Redemption 2 Le Tresor Des Morts and the Poisonous Trail Treasure Map locations too. Our in-depth systems explainers includes hunting perfect pelts, hides and skins as well as all Legendary Animal locations and Legendary Fish locations, or all Gunslinger locations, too. Finally, here's a list of Red Dead Redemption 2 cheat codes .


How to hunt and track pray in Red Dead Redemption 2

Whether you're hunting smaller prey or much larger game, the same process of tracking still applies. Certain areas of the map will play home to specific species, and once you've entered a certain area you'll be able to use tracks, droppings and the remains of a kill to begin your hunt. Using your Binoculars will also allow you to study and track an animal.

Once in an area, and with your bow equipped from your horse (make sure you have this before you leave your mount - better to check first than be ready for a kill, only to pull out a rifle by mistake), click in both analogue sticks to enter a Detective Mode-style view known as Eagle Eye.

Here, animal tracks will be represented by glowing trails on the ground. To select one, look at it and press R1 / Right Bumper.

There are also more subtle signs of a certain animal in the vicinity, such as tracks, excrement and the remains of eaten prey (if you're hunting a predator) so use every clue you can to increase your chances of finding a trail.

When you exit Eagle Eye mode (click both analog sticks in together again) the trail will now be represented by a glowing path on the ground, so follow this slowly to approach your prey. Now, while in Eagle Eye mode, look out for a subtle visual effect that emanates from Arthur. This represents you scent, and along with the sound you make and the size of your body, it'll give you away if you don't know how to reduce their impact.

Clicking in the left analog stick to enter crouch will reduce your size and quieten your footsteps, but in order to mask your scent you'll need to make sure this effect isn't moving in the direction of your prey.

This means they're likely to smell your smelly cowboy body as you approach, so flank around to ensure you're upwin. You can also use Cover Scents to drastically reduce your scent, which last for a limited time.

Once you've made your kill, now it's time to skin your prey and make the most of its various items. A kill will be represented by a yellowed paw icon on the mini-map (it'll go grey once you've skinned it). To skin a smaller animal of its parts, press Square (X on Xbox) when next to the carcass.

What determines the quality of a skin, pelt or hide? A variety of factors, and requires some prior preparation to get right.

What else you need to know about getting hunting for pelts in Red Dead Redemption 2

Looking for some extra advice? These quick tips delves into the basic concepts further to help with your career as a bona fide hunter in Red Dead Redemption 2.

  • Always equip your bow before you leave your mount.
  • Make sure you're stocked with enough arrows.
  • Use the right arrows on big and small game.
  • You can get a Perfect kill with a throwing knife and a poison throwing knife, but you can't with a tomahawk.
  • Don't use guns or explosives when hunting as bullet holes and explosions drastically reduce the quality of the carcass.
  • Hold R1 (or right bumper) when near your prey to 'Study' them and add more info about that animal to your Compendium.
  • Press Square (or X on Xbox) to call an animal and create a brief window to line up a headshot / heartshot.
  • Max out Dead Eye mode (complete Goodbye, Dear Friend in Chapter Six of the story) to reveal vital body parts.
  • You can technically get a Perfect kill with other weapons (such as repeater, rifle and sniper rifle) but you'll need to have maxed out your Dead Eye in order to get a Critical Hit.
  • Sell carcasses fast to avoid decay (which reduces its value).
  • If you die when carrying a carcass on your horse, it will disappear.
  • Skins that were pre-skinned prior to sale will reduce their value by 50%, so always bring the entire carcass when selling it.
  • If you kill an animal that's considered rare in its region, be sure to sell it to a store in that region - you'll get 25% more in value if you do.

What to do with pelts and where to store animal pelts in Red Dead Redemption 2 or most importantly, take your best pelts to the Trapper to craft new equipment. You can find these in the “kit” tab of your satchel. Massive animals include bears, bison, bulls, elk, moose, ox, cows, and big alligators.

Complete hunting guide - Red Dead Redemption 2

Our Red Dead Redemption 2 Perfect Pelts Guide will walk you through everything you need to know to master the art of getting the clean kills required of you to get the top quality pelts. These pelts can be used for upgrading your satchel, and creating unique rare gear that will have you feeling like the ultimate hunter!

Why Do I Need Perfect Pelts?

Perfect Pelts are very useful for upgrading things like your Satchel, which will increase your ability to carry more items. You can upgrade your tonics, ingredients, kit, provisions, materials, and valuables satchels. If you craft all of these, you will then be able to craft the Legend of the East Satchel which will greatly expand the capacity for all types of items!

If you want to look like the ultimate hunter, you can also take these perfect pelts to the trapper and combine them with some of your legendary animal pelts to create unique gear that will have you looking like a mountain man in no time!

Find the Animals

If you are looking for a particular animal, you can go to your map and zoom in on it pretty close and you will start to see animals on it. This encourages you to travel everywhere you can to open up the map and helps a lot when wanting to track down a specific animal. You can also guess where animals might be based on the biomes of the particular parts of the map. For example, Alligators are going to be in the swamp parts of the map, so to the east near Lagras is your best bet.

Observe the Animal & Kill the Right Grade

Your first step to getting one of those perfect pelts you are after is to either bring out your binocular or to target an animal. Near the animal type at the bottom right of the screen you will find stars. This signifies the grade of the animal, and there are three grades: poor, good, and perfect quality. You are going to need to find the three star animals if you want the best pelt. This might take a bit of searching the various locations on the map that have the type of animal you are looking to skin, but it shouldn't be a big problem.

Study the Animal

Be sure to study every particular animal type you come across because this information is useful when trying to get perfect pelts. You will need to use a specific weapon to get a clean kill, and getting a clean kill is the only way to get the perfect pelts. Now, once you've studied the animal, you an show info on it if you are targeting one of them and it will tell you in the description which weapon you need to use. Here's an example of a description:

American Bison - Pristine

Yields a pelt, a horn and bison meat. Used in crafting and cooking or can be sold. Use a rifle for a clean kill.

That part about the rifle for a clean kill is the information we needed!

Know Your Animal Sizes

There are five animal sizes that are useful to know because they correspond with the weapon you are going to need to use to get the clean kill. Small, Moderate, Medium, Large, and Massive. Here's a full list of where each animal that is in the game fits into these groups:

Small

  • Reptiles: Bullfrog, Toad, Snake
  • Birds: Blue Jay, Cardinal, Waxwing, Crow, Oriole, Pigeon, Robin, Songbird, Sparrow, Woodpecker, Carolina Parakeet, Chicken, Duck, Loon, Parrot, Pheasant, Quail, Raven, Booby, Rooster Gull

Use the Right Weapon

Now that you know your animal size groups, let's take a look at what weapon will yield a perfect pelt based on the size of the animal.

For your small animals, you will want to use a Bow with the Small Game Arrow for the clean kill. You can't buy these from a shop, so go to a campfire or start a camp and go to the crafting menu, and under Ammo you will find Arrow - Small Game. You need 1x Flight Feather, 1x Arrow, and 1x Regular Shotgun Shell to craft one. The feathers are going to be the most annoying part, you should have plenty of the rest. Birds are pretty easy to find though, just run around on your horse and scare some into the air.

For the moderate sized animals, you will want to get yourself a Varmint Rifle. This can be bought at a gun store, and is only really useful for hunting and getting the perfect pelts from these smaller animals.

Medium animals have multiple different options for you to use. You can use a Bow with either a normal or poison arrow, throwing knives, repeater, regular rifles, and sniper rifles.

If you want to hunt down a large animal, you can only use a bow with a normal or poison arrow, poisoned throwing knife, rifle, or snipe rifle.

Finally, for the massive animals, you can use a bow with a poison or improved arrow, poisoned throwing knife, rifle, sniper rifle, and you can even use a shotgun but with slug ammunition.

Aim for the Vital Spots to Get Clean Kills

Now that you have the right weapon for your query, you are going to need to kill it with one fatal shot. This can be fairly simple, but there's a bit more to this than meets the eye. Obviously, for just about every animal you can just aim at the head and this will usually be enough to 1-shot whatever you are hunting. However, if you have upgraded dead eye available to you, then you can see the animal's vital areas. You will notice these when you enter dead eye, the target will have red areas on it, these are the spots you can target and get a clean kill with. Normally, it's the brain, heart, and stomach that are aglow. This can come in handy if you are in an awkward position and you don't have an easy shot on the head.

Use Cover Scent Lotion

If you are going to be hunting a lot, then you'll want to make sure not to spook the animals. You can use Cover Scent Lotion, which is purchasable at the general store, to cover your scent and make it so the animals you are targeting are less likely to run away from you and make your hunt more difficult.

Use Baits to Attract Animal

If you are having trouble tracking down a particular animal you can use a bait. Go to the area with the animal you are looking to get a pelt from and place either a Carnivore or Herbivore bait. The type you choose is based on the type of animal, is it a predator like a wolf or a bear? Then you'll use the carnivore bait, if it's a grazing animal that doesn't eat meat then you'd use herbivore bait. You can purchase these from the general store.

Legendary Animals

If you are wanting to hunt down legendary beasts then the above information is not very helpful! They are completely different, and you'll need to track them down to specific spots on the map. They don't have graded pelts, it's always legendary no matter how you kill them. You also can only kill them once, and then they are gone for good. To learn more about these, check out our Legendary Animal Guide!
