This guide is here for all you Cowboys out there who just want to kill and keep every type of varmint on the country side. I’ll help you find the best areas for every animal and even give you some tips on how to kill them but I can only take you so far before you’ll have to knife a bear to death. (Spoiler Alert: It’s annoying)
Challenge: Kill and skin 5 Coyotes
You can find these things littered all over Armadillo (every where for that matter)
Challenge: Kill and skin 5 deer
Deer are also all over but the best place to find them quick is the area around Hannigans Stead.
Challenge: Kill and Skin 5 wolves with your Melee knife
At night wolves are all around Tall Trees. Now when killing them with your knife there are a few ways.
1. Lock on to the wolf and have your knife ready, once the wolf charges wait till he is ready to leap before you swing.
2. Use a low power pistol to weaken the wolf before you lay in the kill shot with your knife.
Challenge: Kill and skin 5 Boars and 3 Armadillos
Boar: A good place to find the Boar is in the mountains of Tall Trees but bears are all over to you can also look by the road in Hennigans Stead.
Armadillo: A good place to find these little critters is in between Gaptooth Breach and Tumbleweed. Be careful with your weapon choice a powerful gun will not leave much of a prize left.
Challenge: Kill and skin 2 Cougars with your Melee knife
The key to this whole deal is to make sure you have medicine. This will not be a quick kill it will take a few shots. If the cougar lands a blow take some time to heal before you go in again. Cougars can be found north-east of Gaptooth Ridge. The tip for the kill is same as the wolf. Wait for it to charge and leap before swinging, or weaken them with a low power pistol before the final kill.
Challenge: Kill and Skin 5 Raccoons, 5 Skunks, and 5 Foxes
Raccoons and Foxes: Both of these guys can be found at night in Tall Trees and Armadillo. If you need to circling around and coming back will allow them to re-spawn.
Skunks: Can be found pretty regularly around Rio Bravo
Challenge: Kill and Skin 5 Elks and 5 Big Horn Sheep
Again both of these animals can be found in Tall Trees but watch out for bears. A few other safer places include Tannes span or south of Bearclaws Camp.
Challenge: Kill and Skin a Bear with your Melee knife
This one is tricky. The best way is to stay on your horse and use your semi-shotgun out of dead eye to soften up the bear. Then get off your horse and wait for him to charge at you to make your move. This will probably take a few tries and beware of the fact that it seems bears come in twos. Don’t know knom many times I’m targeted on one lining him up when I’m curb-stomped from behind by a bear.
Challenge: Kill and Skin Khan the Jaguar
You’ll find him in Ojo del Diablo, south of Chuparosa, if you don’t spot him you can use bait to lure him out.
Challenge: Kill and Skin Lobo the Wolf, Gordo the Bear, and Bruma the Grizzly Bear
Lobo the Wolf: He is located on the east side of Aurora Basin and north west of Tall Trees. Lure him with bait if you can’t find him right away.
Gordo the Boar: He is located in Stillwater Creek and is south west of Thieves’ Landing. Lure him with bait if you can’t find him right away.
Bruma the Grizzly Bear: He us is located in a cave at the top of a mountain in Nekoti Rock and is north east of Aurora Basin.
