Compendium

Animals

Below is a list of all animals in the game, details on where they can be found, and information about the kind of loot each one drops. Animals are listed not alphabetically, but by where they appear in the compendium. If you are missing a specific animal, it will be easier to find out which one it is this way.

American Alligator
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Big Game Meat (0.75), Alligator Tooth (0.40), Poor Alligator Skin (1.40), Good Alligator Skin (2.10), Perfect Alligator Skin (3.50), Poor Alligator Carcass (2.60), Good Alligator Carcass (3.90), Perfect Alligator Carcass (6.50)
Notes: Alligators are entirely localized to the swampy regions in Lemoyne. They can be found in the Bluewater Marsh region and around Bayou Nwa. They are all over this region, so as long as you go anywhere in the area you should find several. To make sure you get the perfect skin and carcass, you want to use something like a sniper rifle. Aim for the head to kill in a single hit and collect your reward.
American Alligator (Small)
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Big Game Meat (0.75), Alligator Tooth (0.40), Poor Alligator Skin (1.40), Good Alligator Skin (2.10), Perfect Alligator Skin (3.50), Poor Alligator Carcass (2.60), Good Alligator Carcass (3.90), Perfect Alligator Carcass (6.50)
Notes: These guys are just like the standard American Alligator in every way. Except they're a bit smaller. You'll be able to tell them apart in the wild just by their size difference. You'll find them in Lemoyne, around the Bluewater Marsh and Bayou Nwa regions.
American Badger
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Badger Claw (0.25), Poor Badger Pelt (0.50), Good Badger Pelt (0.75), Perfect Badger Pelt (1.25), Poor Badger Carcass (1.20), Good Badger Carcass (1.80), Perfect Badger Carcass (3.00)
Notes: Badgers can be found in almost every region in the game, but are very common in the southwest areas of Lemoyne (basically anywhere that isn't the swamp or Saint Denis). They're also abundant in eastern areas of Ambarino. The Varmint Rifle will get you a clean kill if you're looking for perfect pelts.
American Black Bear
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Big Game Meat (0.75), Black Bear Claw (0.60), Animal Fat (0.25), Poor Black Bear Fur (1.40), Good Black Bear Fur (2.10), Perfect Black Bear Fur (3.50)
Notes: You typically have to get pretty remote in the wilderness to find black bears, although sometimes they can be found right outside a northern city like Annesburg. They are found pretty exclusively in the woodlands of Roanoke, Big Valley, and Tall Trees. While not as big as some other bears, they can still maul you to death if you let them. A rifle works best here, and something like a sniper rifle can actually kill a bear in a single heat shot.
Grizzly Bear
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Big Game Meat (0.75), Bear Claw (1.50), Animal Fat (0.25), Poor Bear Fur (3.00), Good Bear Fur (4.50), Perfect Bear Fur (7.50)
Notes: Grizzlies are some of the biggest, most dangerous animals in the game. They are most common in Grizzlies East in Ambarino, but can also be found in the very north and very south of West Elizabeth. This is one of the toughest animals in the entire game to take down, but you can do it with a combination of a heat shot and a rifle using either high velocity or express bullets. Alternatively, just keep shooting until it goes down, but this will mean you won't get the perfect fur.
Wild Boar
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Tender Pork Loin (0.60), Boar Tusks (0.45), Animal Fat (0.25), Poor Boar Skin (0.84), Good Boar Skin (1.26), Perfect Boar Skin (2.10)
Notes: Boars are located throughout New Hanover, Lemoyne, and West Elizabeth, but they are far and away most heavily concentrated in Lemoyne. While poison arrows can be used to secure high quality skin, a sniper rifle works just as well and requires far less crafting.
Whitetail Buck
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Mature Venison (0.60), Buck Antlers (1.05), Poor Buck Fur (1.30), Good Buck Fur (1.95), Perfect Buck Fur (3.25), Mature Venison (0.60), Poor Buck Carcass (4.00), Good Buck Carcass (6.00), Perfect Buck Carcass (10.00)
Notes: This and the female version are very common animals you'll run into all the time. They tend to be near forested areas, and you'll find them all the time starting in Chapter 2. These are also some of the best animals to kill simply due to the huge price you get for their bodies.
Whitetail Deer
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Poor Deer Hide (0.90), Good Deer Hide (1.35), Perfect Deer Hide (2.25), Mature Venison (0.60), Poor Deer Carcass (2.80), Good Deer Carcass (4.20), Perfect Deer Carcass (7.00)
Notes: This is one of the most common animals in the entire game, and you'll first run into it on The Aftermath of Genesis quest during Chapter 1. They are also abundant throughout most of the game, and can be found early on in the game in the forests around Colter or Horseshoe Overlook.
American Bison
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Prime Beef (0.60), Bison Horns (0.75), Poor Bison Fur (2.00), Good Bison Fur (3.00), Perfect Bison Fur (5.00)
Notes: These are huge (ABSOLUTE UNITS) and can be found, usually in groups, in the plains of New Hanover and West Elizabeth. To get the best fur, you want to use either a high powered rifle (Carcano Rifle) or a bow with special arrows. Most other kills will net you poor fur because of how many shots it will take.
American Bullfrog
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Herptile Meat (0.25), Poor Bullfrog Carcass (0.20), Good Bullfrog Carcass (0.30), Perfect Bullfrog Carcass (0.50)
Notes: Found near shallow waters and along shorelines in swampy areas, particularly near Bayou Nwa and Bluewater Marsh. Riding along the shoreline (particularly along the eastern edge of Lemoyne) is your best bet. Small game arrows help ensure high quality carcasses.
American Domestic Cat
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): N/A
Notes: Kitties! Don't you dare hurt the cats, because they don't drop loot and even if they did, you'd be kind of a jerk killing a cat to sell its fur for a nickel. Cats are found in ranches and towns, and you'll bump into these all the time while you're exploring.
Dominique Chicken
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Plump Bird Meat (0.40), Chicken Feather (0.30), Poor Chicken Carcass (0.70), Good Chicken Carcass (1.05), Perfect Chicken Carcass (1.75)
Notes: These are more domesticated chickens and you're more likely to find them on ranches or farms than you are in the wild. As such, it probably isn't worth it to kill them, particularly because to complete your progress on this animal you only need to study them.
Java Chicken
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Plump Bird Meat (0.40), Chicken Feather (0.30), Poor Chicken Carcass (0.70), Good Chicken Carcass (1.05), Perfect Chicken Carcass (1.75)
Notes: The Java Chicken can be found out in the wild, but it is mostly located on ranches or in towns. The first of these can actually be found right in your camp at the start of Chapter 2, so investigate it then before moving on.
Leghorn Chicken
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Plump Bird Meat (0.40), Chicken Feather (0.30), Poor Chicken Carcass (0.70), Good Chicken Carcass (1.05), Perfect Chicken Carcass (1.75)
Notes: Unlike some of the other chickens, this variant isn't that likely to be found in towns. Instead, you'll want to check ranches and they can even be found occasionally out in the wild. The first place you will find these is in your starting camp at the beginning of Chapter 2.
Florida Cracker Cow
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Prime Beef (0.60), Poor Cow Hide (1.00), Good Cow Hide (1.50), Perfect Cow Hide (2.50)
Notes: These cows can be found on homesteads or ranches in any region in the game. Bows with improved arrows or rifles are good for killing cows, but be warned that if you kill someone's cow you will lose morality and people will put a bounty on your head.
California Valley Coyote
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Poor Coyote Fur (0.60), Good Coyote Fur (0.90), Perfect Coyote Fur (1.50), Poor Coyote Carcass (1.40), Good Coyote Carcass (2.10), Perfect Coyote Carcass (3.50)
Notes: These guys usually hunt in packs, although they won't be too keen on attacking you. They are found all over the game, and are particularly abundant in New Austin, West Elizabeth, Lemoyne and New Hanover. Since they're in New Hanover, you will be able to start finding and hunting them right at the start of the game as they're nearby your camp in Chapter 2.
Red Swamp Crayfish
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Crayfish Carcass (N/A)
Notes: Crayfish are found in the swampland of Bayou Nwa, and you will find them in decent numbers in the small swamps to the southwest of Saint Denis. The easiest way to find them is to do Pearson's camp activity in Chapter 4, because he'll lead you right to some and they'll automatically be added to your Compendium. Their carcasses can be used for bait in fishing.
Whooping Crane
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Crane Feather (1.20), Poor Crane Carcass (1.10), Good Crane Carcass (1.65), Perfect Crane Carcass (2.75)
Notes: Whooping Cranes can be found in the wetlands of both New Hanover and Lemoyne, although they seem to be more common in Lemoyne, particularly nearby the swampy areas of the region. The Varmint Rifle is the best weapon to ensure perfect carcass quality.
Sandhill Crane
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Crane Feather (1.20), Poor Crane Carcass (1.10), Good Crane Carcass (1.65), Perfect Crane Carcass (2.75)
Notes: The Sandhill Crane is very much like the Whooping Crane and will often be found in groups together. Like the Whooping Crane, these can be found in the wetlands of both New Hanover and Lemoyne with the swampy areas of Lemoyne your best bet if you're going hunting for them. The Varmint Rifle is the weapon of choice.
American Crow
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Crow Feather (0.30), Poor Crow Carcass ( 0.40), Good Crow Carcass (0.60), Perfect Crow Carcass (1.00)
Notes: Crows can be found just about everywhere, although they seem much rarer in New Austin compared to any of the other territories. A lot of times they'll stop by to pick at any carcasses you might have left behind. To get a perfect carcass, you'll want to use a bow with Small Game Arrows.
American Fox Hound
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): N/A
Notes: The bad news is there are a lot of dog breeds in the game, and it is just sort of random chance which ones you run into when. This one can be found all over the game in various towns, although I had my best luck looking around Rhodes. The good news is - DOGGIES. Pet them. Pet them all.
Australian Shepard
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): N/A
Notes: There are doggies in the game! And you can pet them! What more could you possibly want? These dogs can be found in most towns and on certain ranches or farms. Always pet them (they're good boys).
Bloodhound
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): N/A
Notes: This is another in a fairly long line of dog variants in the game. They'll pop up in most of the towns across the game. They are extra good for petting.
Bluetick Coonhound
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): N/A
Notes: These adorable little doggos can be found primarily in towns. The only requirement to complete their progress is to study them, so do that whenever you get close. And the pet them, of course. Lots of pets. The first time you will see one of these will be in Valentine, but they're in most towns in the game.
Border Collie
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): N/A
Notes: Yet another adorable dog that is in desperate need of head scratches. They are most commonly found on ranches and towns in Lemoyne and New Hanover. Pet them twice when you see them. They're that good of a dog.
Catahoula Cur
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): N/A
Notes: One of the rarer doggies. Clearly, this means they deserve extra pets. I found one wandering around the fence shop in Van Horn, but there will be others scattered around in random towns throughout the game.
Chesapeake Bay Retriever
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): N/A
Notes: Another dog. It is very important to pet this one as soon as you see it. Not because it does anything in game, but all dogs need to be pet, even virtual ones. These dogs are in homesteads and towns around New Hanover, and you can even find them in certain train stations.
Labrador Retriever
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): N/A
Notes: I'm not saying labs are the best dogs. Science will tell us that. Labrador retrievers are actually somewhat tough to find in this game, and they usually aren't found in towns. You will come across them at farms and at ranches, but usually only in New Hanover or New Austin. You just have to get kind of lucky when searching for these, so make sure you check out every dog you come across if you're having trouble.
Mallard Duck
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Game Meat (0.60), Animal Fat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Duck Feather (0.30), Poor Duck Carcass (1.10), Good Duck Carcass (1.65), Perfect Duck Carcass (2.75)
Notes: These ducks are found in watery areas (rivers, ponds) in the West Elizabeth, New Hanover, and Lemoyne. A bow with small game arrows is your only chance to secure a perfect carcass, so keep that in mind if you're going hunting.
Pekin Duck
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Game Meat (0.60), Animal Fat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Duck Feather (0.30), Poor Duck Carcass (1.10), Good Duck Carcass (1.65), Perfect Duck Carcass (2.75)
Notes: These ducks are found in watery areas (rivers, ponds) in the West Elizabeth, New Hanover, and Lemoyne. To get a perfect carcass, you'll want to use small game arrows, otherwise you're going to damage the body. Be careful when approaching them, because if you get close they will fly away and it'll be impossible to track them down at this point.
Little Egret
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Little Egret Plume (2.00), Poor Egret Carcass (1.40), Good Egret Carcass (2.10), Perfect Egret Carcass (3.50)
Notes: Rare birds that only occupy the swamplands of Bayou Nwa. They can be found dotting the islands in the middle of the large swamp nearby Lagras. This is where they are most common, but they can also appear elsewhere throughout the region. A varmint rifle is best for hunting. These birds are important as part of a special collectables side mission, which is fully detailed in the Collectables section of the guide.
Snowy Egret
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Snowy Egret Plume (2.50), Poor Egret Carcass (1.40), Good Egret Carcass (2.10), Perfect Egret Carcass (3.50)
Notes: Somewhat rare birds, these egrets can be found around the swamps and marshlands of Lemoyne. A good spot to find some is around the islands to the southwest of Saint Denis and east of Shady Belle. The varmint rifle is best for hunting, but the important thing to grab from them is their feathers. These are required as part of a special collectables side mission. Refer to the Collectables section of the guide for more information on this quest.
Rocky Mountain Bull Elk
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Mature Venison (0.60), Elk Antlers (1.35), Poor Elk Pelt (2.60), Good Elk Pelt (3.90), Perfect Elk Pelt (6.50)
Notes: You'll find this guy wandering around the northern portions of the map, primarily in northern New Hanover and Ambarino. His pelts sell for quite a bit, but unfortunately he is a hard guy to bring down without damaging his pelt. You'll want to use a bow with improved arrows or a powerful rifle and aim exclusively for the head.
Rocky Mountain Cow Elk
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Mature Venison (0.60), Elk Antlers (1.35), Poor Elk Pelt (2.60), Good Elk Pelt (3.90), Perfect Elk Pelt (6.50)
Notes: These are the female version of the bull elk, and essentially all the same information applies here as well. They can be found in northern New Hanover and Ambarino and are best killed using a powerful rifle and a headshot.
American Red Fox
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Poor Fox Fur (0.90), Good Fox Fur (1.35), Perfect Fox Fur (2.25), Poor Fox Carcass (1.80), Good Fox Carcass (2.70), Perfect Fox Carcass (4.50)
Notes: The American Red Fox is very common to see in forests and grasslands of West Elizabeth, New Hanover, and Lemoyne. A bow with standard arrows is the best way to ensure consistent quality pelts and carcasses.
American Gray Fox
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Poor Fox Fur (0.90), Good Fox Fur (1.35), Perfect Fox Fur (2.25), Poor Fox Carcass (1.80), Good Fox Carcass (2.70), Perfect Fox Carcass (4.50)
Notes: Like the American Red Fox, the American Gray Fox is found in forests of West Elizabeth, New Hanover, and Lemoyne. The seem slightly more common in West Elizabeth, particularly in the area around Strawberry. A bow or repeater can be used when hunting for better quality drops.
Silver Fox
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Poor Fox Fur (0.90), Good Fox Fur (1.35), Perfect Fox Fur (2.25), Poor Fox Carcass (1.80), Good Fox Carcass (2.70), Perfect Fox Carcass (4.50)
Notes: Like most of the other foxes, the silver fox can be found just about everywhere. They are fairly common along the New Hanover/Ambarino border, but can be found in most grassy or forested areas. A bow or repeater gives the strongest quality loot while hunting.
Alpine Goat
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Grisly Mutton (0.40), Poor Goat Hair (0.80), Good Goat Hair (1.20), Perfect Goat Hair (2.00), Poor Goat Carcass (1.90), Good Goat Carcass (2.85), Perfect Goat Carcass (4.75)
Notes: This is one of many domesticated animals in the game, and you'll find them on ranches or farms throughout the entire game. Don't let people catch you killing their goats though. They won't like that.
Great Blue Heron
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Heron Feather (1.50), Poor Heron Carcass (1.30), Good Heron Carcass (1.95), Perfect Heron Carcass (3.25)
Notes: They can be found throughout Lemoyne and are especially abundant near water or swampy areas. The Varmint Rifle will help you get perfect carcasses from them.
Tricolored Heron
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Heron Feather (1.50), Poor Heron Carcass (1.30), Good Heron Carcass (1.95), Perfect Heron Carcass (3.25)
Notes: Essentially the same as the Great Blue Heron, but with more colors! They're also found in Lemoyne and should be hunted with a Varmint Rifle, and are frequently right next to some Great Blue Herons.
Green Iguana
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Herptile Meat (0.25), Poor Iguana Skin (0.46), Good Iguana Skin (0.69), Perfect Iguana Skin (1.15), Poor Iguana Carcass (1.00), Good Iguana Carcass (1.50), Perfect Iguana Carcass (2.50)
Notes: Iguanas have a couple of different habitats, but are not found much throughout the game. They can be located on the large island in Flat Iron Lake where the pirate ship is crashed. They are also found in Guarma or New Austin. Varmint Rifle should be used to ensure perfect quality loot.
Western Bull Moose
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Mature Venison (0.60), Moose Antler (1.75), Poor Moose Fur (3.00), Good Moose Fur (4.50), Perfect Moose Fur (7.50)
Notes: For as big as these guys are, they can be hard to find. Your best bet is in southwestern West Elizabeth and this seems to have the highest concentration of moose. However, you can also find some around Ambarino and the far northeast corner of the map also has a couple. To get perfect fur, you will want to use either a bow with improved arrows or a long scope rifle.
Western Moose
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Mature Venison (0.60), Poor Moose Fur (3.00), Good Moose Fur (4.50), Perfect Moose Fur (7.50)
Notes: Same as the Western Bull mMoose, but without the antlers. You can find them in all the same locations, and their most prominent spot will be in southwestern West Elizabeth.
Mule
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): N/A
Notes: These are another of the game's domesticated animal species, so you will only find mules on farms or riches in New Hanover. You cannot skin them, but you can ride them away and steal them if you want.
American Muskrat
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Scent Glands (0.25), Poor Muskrat Fur (0.78), Good Muskrat Fur (1.17), Perfect Muskrat Fur (1.95), Poor Muskrat Carcass (1.50), Good Muskrat Carcass (2.40), Perfect Muskrat Carcass (4.00)
Notes: American Muskrats are found very commonly near the shoreline of rivers and lakes throughout the New Austin, West Elizabeth, Lemoyne, and New Hanover regions. These are very slow and fairly easy to kill, but if you want a perfect carcass you will want to use the small game arrows.
California Horned Owl
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.25), Owl Feather (1.50), Poor Owl Carcass (1.30), Good Owl Carcass (1.95), Perfect Owl Carcass (3.25)
Notes: One of the harder animals to find in the game, the California Horned Owl is localized in New Austin and along the New Austin border in West Elizabeth. These things are huge, so if you see a giant bird flying around there's a good chance it is one of these. The Varmint Rifle will get you the perfect owl carcass if you aim for the head.
Coastal Horned Owl
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.25), Owl Feather (1.50), Poor Owl Carcass (1.30), Good Owl Carcass (1.95), Perfect Owl Carcass (3.25)
Notes: These owls are a bit rarer than some of the other birds, but can theoretically be found in most environments in the game. They seem most common in Lemoyne (outside of the swamp area), New Hanover, and the southern portion of West Elizabeth. They will be airborne a lot, so keep your binoculars handy and search the sky if you see a larger bird flying overhead. A headshot with a Varmint Rifle is the best way to ensure high quality carcasses.
Angus Ox
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Prime Beef (0.60), Oxen Horn (0.45), Poor Oxen Hide (1.40), Good Oxen Hide (2.10), Perfect Oxen Hide (3.50)
Notes: The Angus Oxen are found only on farms and ranches in the West Elizabeth, New Hanover, and Lemoyne regions. You can kill them most easily with headshots from a bow or a rifle, although most of the time that will result with people being very mad at you on account of them being domesticated animals and all.
Scarlet Macaw
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Exotic Bird Meat (0.60), Flight Feather (0.15), Parot Feather (1.20), Poor Parot Carcass (1.50), Good Part Carcass (2.25), Perfect Parot Carcass (3.75)
Notes: These birds are found exclusively in Guarma, so do not even bother searching for them until Chapter 5 at the earliest. They are extremely common along the Arroyo De La Vibora and can often be found sitting on rocks along the river. They are best hunted with small game arrows.
American White Pelican
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Exotic Bird Meat (0.60), Flight Feather (0.15), Pelican Feather (1.20), Poor Pelican Carcass (1.50), Good Pelican Carcass (2.25), Perfect Pelican Carcass (3.75)
Notes: They are found through coastal regions of most of the game, specifically in West Elizabeth, New Hanover, or Lemoyne. They can be along the water front and flying nearby, so check both if you looking for them.
Brown Pelican
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Exotic Bird Meat (0.60), Flight Feather (0.15), Pelican Feather (1.20),Poor Pelican Carcass (1.50), Good Pelican Carcass (2.25), Perfect Pelican Carcass (3.75)

Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Tender Pork Loin (0.60), Poor Pig Skin (0.70), Good Pig Skin (1.05), Perfect Pig Skin (1.75), Poor Pig Carcass (2.30), Good Pig Carcass (3.45), Perfect Pig Carcass (5.75)
Notes: Berkshire Pigs are found exclusively on ranches or towns, and are primarily located in the New Hanover region. They drop a lot of good material either for eating, crafting, or selling, but there aren't too many you can kill without angering someone since they tend to be domesticated. The earliest you'll find these pigs is on the ranch of Emmet Granger, which is directly east of Flatneck Station.
Big China Pig
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Tender Pork Loin (0.60), Poor Pig Skin (0.70), Good Pig Skin (1.05), Perfect Pig Skin (1.75), Poor Pig Carcass (2.30), Good Pig Carcass (3.45), Perfect Pig Carcass (5.75)
Notes: Like the Berkshire Pig, this breed of pig is found exclusively on ranches or towns, and are primarily located in the New Hanover region. You'll find these pigs in the ranches just around the outskirts of Valentine, although most ranches in the regions will have these pigs if you visit them. They drop some good material, but you lose morale for killing them and someone will alert the police if they see you doing it since they are domesticated animals.
Old Spot Pig
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Tender Pork Loin (0.60), Poor Pig Skin (0.70), Good Pig Skin (1.05), Perfect Pig Skin (1.75), Poor Pig Carcass (2.30), Good Pig Carcass (3.45), Perfect Pig Carcass (5.75)
Notes: These pigs are also found in ranches and towns, and once again are most abundant in New Hanover. However, you can find them elsewhere as well and there tends to be a couple in northern Saint Denis. These are another domesticated species, so be warned that killing them comes with penalties. Repeaters and bows are the best way to get perfect loot.
American Pronghorn Doe
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Poor Pronghorn Fur (0.80), Good Pronghorn Fur (1.20), Perfect Pronghorn Fur (2.00), Mature Venison (0.60), Poor Pronghorn Carcass (2.60), Good Pronghorn Carcass (3.90), Perfect Pronghorn Carcass (6.50)
Notes: These can be found in the grasslands of New Hanover and West Elizabeth, and can first be encountered very early in Chapter 2 just outside of Horseshoe Overlook. The meat is good for cooking and the skin is a great material for crafting, so this is always a good target when you're out scavenging for food.
Rocky Mountain Bighorn Ram
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gristly Mutton (0.40), Bighorn Horn (0.60), Poor Ram Hide (1.10), Good Ram Hide (1.65), Perfect Ram Hide (2.75), Poor Ram Carcass (3.00), Good Ram Carcass (4.50), Perfect Ram Carcass (7.50)
Notes: Primarily localized in the Grizzlies East region of Ambarino. They can be found elsewhere occasionally, but they are most abundant here. A headshot with a strong rifle is the best way to ensure perfect quality when hunting.
Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gristly Mutton (0.40), Poor Sheep Wool (0.80), Good Sheep Wool (1.20), Perfect Sheep Wool (2.00), Poor Sheep Carcass (1.90), Good Sheep Carcass (2.85), Perfect Sheep Carcass (4.75)
Notes: Primarily localized in the Grizzlies East region of Ambarino, but can also be found along the Cumberland Forest and at the New Hanover/Ambarino border around these areas. Rifles and bows are most useful when hunting.
Black-Tailed Jackrabbit
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Game Meat (0.60), Poor Rabbit Pelt (0.46), Good Rabbit Pelt (0.69), Perfect Rabbit Pelt (1.15), Poor Rabbit Carcass (1.40), Good Rabbit Carcass (2.10), Perfect Rabbit Carcass (3.50)
Notes: Raccoon are must abundant through the regions of Lemoyne, New Hanover, and West Elizabeth. They are very frequently in wooded regions, but you will find them outside of those as well. Using the Varmint Rifle is the best way of ensuring a high quality carcass.
North American Raccoon
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Poor Raccoon Fur (0.48), Good Raccoon Fur (0.72), Perfect Raccoon Fur (1.20), Poor Raccoon Carcass (1.00), Good Raccoon Carcass (1.50), Perfect Raccoon Carcass (2.50)
Notes: Raccoon are must abundant through the regions of Lemoyne, New Hanover, and West Elizabeth. They are very frequently in wooded regions, but you will find them outside of those as well. Using the Varmint Rifle is the best way of ensuring a high quality carcass.
Black Rat
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Poor Rat Pelt (0.10), Good Rat Pelt (0.15), Perfect Rat Pelt (0.25), Poor Rat Carcass (0.30), Good Rat Carcass (0.45), Perfect Rat Carcass (0.75)
Notes: Very common through most of the game, particularly in or near cities. You can find them around rivers or grassy areas a lot of time, but they get increasingly more rare the further you get from any high population area. Hunt them with a small game arrow and you might get a perfect rat carcass, which will net you a whole 75 cents. Don't spend it all in one place.
Brown Rat
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Poor Rat Pelt (0.10), Good Rat Pelt (0.15), Perfect Rat Pelt (0.25), Poor Rat Carcass (0.30), Good Rat Carcass (0.45), Perfect Rat Carcass (0.75)
Notes: These rats are just about everywhere, and they tend to be most abundant in areas near people. They can be found in Armadillo, and there will be a lot in the Saint Denis area (one job in the city actually has you killing handfuls of these in a saloon for cash). There isn't much money to be made in hunting rats, sadly. Your bow with small game arrows equipped is the best way to get high quality pelts from these things.
Western Raven
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Raven Feather (0.45), Poor Raven Carcass (0.70), Good Raven Carcass (1.05), Perfect Raven Carcass (1.75)
Notes: While Western Ravens have habitats in Lemoyne, West Elizabeth, and Ambarino, they are probably most common in the southern area of West Elizabeth. Small Game Arrows are best for hunting, and since a lot of these are overhead you may want to keep your binoculars handy to study them from afar.
Roseate Spoonbill
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Spoonbill Feather (1.95), Poor Spoonbill Carcass (1.60), Good Spoonbill Carcass (2.40), Perfect Spoonbill Carcass (4.00)
Notes: There are not too many areas the Roseate Spoonbill frequent, making them hard to find if you aren't looking for them. They are almost entirely localized to the Bayou Nwa area in Lemoyne, so travel there if you are looking to fill your Compendium. The Varmint Rifle is the preferred weapon when hunting these birds.
Herring Gull
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Seagull Feather (0.30), Poor Seagull Carcass (0.60), Good Seagull Carcass (0.90), Perfect Seagull Carcass (1.50)
Notes: This is another localized species of bird, and your best bet is to look around the Bluewater Marsh region in Lemoyne. They are particularly abundant along the side of the river near the edge of the map. A bow with small game arrows can help secure better quality carcasses.
Merino Sheep
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Grisly Mutton (0.40), Poor Sheep Wool (0.80), Good Sheep Wool (1.20), Perfect Sheep Wool (2.00), Poor Sheep Carcass (1.90), Good Sheep Carcass (2.85), Perfect Sheep Carcass (4.75)
Notes: Another domesticated animal, you will find this sheep in towns or ranches. They won't really flee from you, but you'll need to make sure no one else is around you when you kill them because otherwise you'll get an animal cruelty bounty placed on your head. They first appear in Valentine at a large ranch area just north of the post office.
Striped Skunk
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Scent Gland (0.25), Poor Skunk Fur (0.38), Good Skunk Fur (0.57), Perfect Skunk Fur (0.95), Poor Skunk Carcass (1.00), Good Skunk Carcass (1.50), Perfect Skunk Carcass (2.50)
Notes: The striped skunk can be found basically anywhere in the game, with the exception of the really snowy regions or cold areas in Ambarino. It is really abundant all over New Hanover or in the non-swampy areas in Lemoyne. The Varmint Rifle is best for good kills, although the skunk really doesn't have much to scavenge and typically isn't worth hunting other than to help fill your Compendium.
Timber Rattlesnake
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Poor Snake Skin (0.46), Good Snake Skin (0.69), Perfect Snake Skin (1.15), Poor Snake Carcass (1.00), Good Snake Carcass (1.50), Perfect Snake Carcass (2.50)
Notes: One of many snake species you can find in this game, the Timber Rattlesnake is located throughout Lemoyne, New Hanover, and parts of West Elizabeth. It seems most common nearby the swampland of Lemoyne, but can be found throughout any of the aforementioned regions. Small game arrows are the best way to get perfect quality loot.
Northern Copperhead Snake
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Poor Snake Skin (0.46), Good Snake Skin (0.69), Perfect Snake Skin (1.15), Poor Snake Carcass (1.00), Good Snake Carcass (1.50), Perfect Snake Carcass (2.50)
Notes: Found in New Hanover and Lemoyne. It is very abundant around the swamplands of Lemoyne, particularly east of the large lake in the center of the swamp. Like all snakes, small game arrows work best for hunting.
Southern Copperhead Snake
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Poor Snake Skin (0.46), Good Snake Skin (0.69), Perfect Snake Skin (1.15), Poor Snake Carcass (1.00), Good Snake Carcass (1.50), Perfect Snake Carcass (2.50)
Notes: While they are called "southern" copperhead snakes, they can be found fairly far north as well. They are found all over New Hanover (even the northernmost part), Lemoyne, and West Elizabeth (although they are concentrated in the southern region of West Elizabeth). These snakes are poisonous and will bit you if you get close. Small game arrows will get you high quality loot, and everything else is likely to damage it.
Midland Water Snake
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Poor Snake Skin (0.46), Good Snake Skin (0.69), Perfect Snake Skin (1.15), Poor Snake Carcass (1.00), Good Snake Carcass (1.50), Perfect Snake Carcass (2.50)
Notes: While they can also appear on the shores of Roanoke Ridge, they are most highly abundant in the swamps of Lemoyne. You'll typically find them swimming on the water, and the difficulty is wading out to collect their carcass after you kill them while not being eaten by alligators. You will want to use Small Game Arrows on this snake to ensure a high quality skin and carcass.
Northern Water Snake
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Poor Snake Skin (0.46), Good Snake Skin (0.69), Perfect Snake Skin (1.15), Poor Snake Carcass (1.00), Good Snake Carcass (1.50), Perfect Snake Carcass (2.50)
Notes: The northern water snake and the midland water snake appear in roughly the same region. So much for "northern", huh? Roanoke Ridge and the swamplands of Lemoyne are their primary habitat, and you'll find a lot of these guys along the edge of the eastern coast of Lemoyne. Small game arrows are the best way to get perfect carcasses.
Scarlet Tanager Songbird
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Songbird Feather (0.30), Poor Songbird Carcass (0.40), Good Songbird Carcass (0.60), Perfect Songbird Carcass (1.00)
Notes: These songbirds can be found in Lemoyne, New Hanover, and West Elizabeth. You can usually find a big group along the creek in northwestern Lemoyne near the border. Small game arrows can get you high quality carcasses, but these things are so cheap it probably isn't even worth the arrows.
American Red Squirrel
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Squirrel Tail (0.10), Poor Squirrel Pelt (0.30), Good Squirrel Pelt (0.45), Perfect Squirrel Pelt (0.75), Poor Squirrel Carcass (0.70), Good Squirrel Carcass (1.05), Perfect Squirrel Carcass (1.75)
Notes: This variant of squirrel is found most commonly in the forested areas of West Elizabeth and New Hanover, although they can be found just outside of forest areas as well. You need either small game arrows or a Varmint Rifle to ensure high carcass quality upon kill.
Western Grey Squirrel
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Squirrel Tail (0.10), Poor Squirrel Pelt (0.30), Good Squirrel Pelt (0.45), Perfect Squirrel Pelt (0.75), Poor Squirrel Carcass (0.70), Good Squirrel Carcass (1.05), Perfect Squirrel Carcass (1.75)
Notes: You're going to run across squirrels all the time during your adventures, and this species can be found in the forested regions of West Elizabeth and New Hanover. You'll find them just outside of your camp in Horseshoe Overlook first, and the hard part will actually be hunting them since they're small and quite fast. The rewards typically aren't worth it, so unless you're going for a complete compendium you likely won't need to be hunting these too often.
Western Toad
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Herptile Meat (0.25), Poor Toad Carcass (0.20), Good Toad Carcass (0.30), Perfect Toad Carcass (0.50)
Notes: Western Toads are most abundant in the Lemoyne wetlands, although they can also be found around other bodies of water in the game. The first place you're likely to run into them is just east of your camp in Horseshoe Overlook nearby the river. They are quite slow and easy to hunt, but you will want small game arrows if you want to get a perfect toad carcass.
Eastern Wild Turkey
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Plump Bird Meat (0.40), Turkey Feather (0.45), Poor Turkey Carcass (0.80), Good Turkey Carcass (1.20), Perfect Turkey Carcass (2.00)
Notes: This species of turkey can be found in lightly wooded areas of West Elizabeth, New Hanover, and Lemoyne. Compared to some other birds in the game, these are fairly easy to hunt and won't run away unless you get really close to them. The first time in the game you find them will be just north of Horseshoe Overlook, although they are very highly abundant in most areas throughout the game.
Alligator Snapping Turtle
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Herptile Meat (0.25), Poor Turtle Carcass (0.90), Good Turtle Carcass (1.35), Perfect Turtle Carcass (2.25)
Notes: These very slow moving targets are found exclusively in the swamplands of Lemoyne. They'll typically be near actual alligators, so be careful when hunting them. Fortunately, they are very slow and make very easy targets if you're in the mood to hunt some turtles. The get the perfect carcass, you'll want to use a bow with small game arrows.
Gray Wolf
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Big Game Meat (0.60), Wolf Heart (0.45), Poor Wolf Fur (0.60), Good Wolf Fur (0.90), Perfect Wolf Fur (1.50), Poor Wolf Carcass (2.10), Good Wolf Carcass (3.15), Perfect Wolf Carcass (5.35)
Notes: They are most commonly found in the Big Valley region and Tall Trees North. You can occasionally run into them elsewhere, particularly in Ambarino, and they can be dangerous because they hunt in packs. Rifles or your bow are preferable for scoring high quality loot.
Legendary Bharati Grizzly Bear
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Big Game Meat (0.75), Legendary Bear Claw (N/A), Legendary Bear Pelt (60.00)
Notes: Here's the big boy. This is the largest and probably most dangerous of all the animals you can face off against in the game. You will actually hunt it during the Exit Pursed By A Bruised Ego mission in Chapter 2, and its clues will always be along the same path you hunted it during the main story mission. You'll want to bring with one of your most powerful rifles, and once you find it just put like eight bullets into it all during the same Dead Eye target. He takes a lot of shots to take down, so when you get off your horse make sure you bring something more powerful than just your revolvers.
Legendary Beaver
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Legendary Beaver Tooth (N/A), Legendary Beaver Pelt (18.00), Legendary Beaver Carcass (19.00)
Notes: This legendary creature makes its home near the Elysian Pool in New Hanover. It can be found almost directly west of Van Horn, right along the river that is south of Elysian Pool. You will need to find three different spots of interest to track it before you find the beaver itself, and most of these will be located right around the huge dam in the area that this beaver presumably built.
Legendary White Bison
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Prime Beef (0.60), Legendary Bison Horn (N/A), Legendary White Bison Pelt (32.50)
Notes: To track down the Legendary White Bison, you're going to have to travel back to Ambarino. It can be found just north of Lake Isabella, right towards where the center of the lake is. Its first clue is likely to be somewhere around the shoreline and due to the changes in elevation nearby this isn't one you really need to travel too far to find. The bison, however, can take some damage. This thing takes more shots to take down than basically any other legendary animal, so try to get in as many headshots as you can during a Dead Eye activation. Even then, it still might not be enough to bring it down. Chase after it if it flees, and keep repeating using Dead Eye until it falls.
Legendary Boar
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Tender Pork Loin (0.60), Legendary Boar Tusk (N/A), Legendary Boar Pelt (22.00)
Notes: The Legendary Boar can be found in the Bluewater Marsh region of Lemoyne. It will be just above the "A" in the word Bluewater on your map. His clues are group fairly close together, and once you find the third on you should actually be able to see the boar nearby. He is neither fast nor aggressive, making him a fairly easy target. Go for a headshot with a rifle, and if you are being particularly safe you can use Dead Eye to fire off five rounds at once.
Legendary Coyote
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Legendary Coyote Fang (N/A), Legendary Coyote Pelt (22.00), Legendary Coyote Carcass (22.75)
Notes: This one doesn't match up to well to its position on your map. On your map, its picture will show up in northwest Lemoyne, just to the west of the "A" in Scarlett Meadows. However, to actually start hunting him you will need to travel where the southern railroad crosses the New Hanover/Lemoyne border. Go slightly north of this on the New Hanover side, and then check a little east near Old Greenbank Mill. It will be somewhere in this area you can start finding clues. After you find him, he doesn't put up much of a fight and he'll likely be eating a sheep when you get close. Kill him before he can even look up.
Legendary Fox
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Legendary Fox Claw (N/A), Legendary Fox Pelt (22.00), Legendary Fox Carcass (22.75)
Notes: If you travel directly north of Rhodes, you can find the Legendary Fox habitat. It will be located in the Mattock Pond region, which is a short walk north from the Rhodes' fence. He can be quick, so make sure you shoot him as soon as you have him tracked. A single headshot should do the trick, and he is one of the easier legendaries to take down.
Legendary Elk
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Mature Venison (0.60), Legendary Elk Antler (N/A), Legendary Elk Pelt (33.00)
Notes: The Legendary Elk can be found in northern New Hanover. It will show up on your map to the east of Fort Wallace, in the northeastern portion of the Cumberland Forest. However, I could not seem to find a clue near there, and instead I had to travel up to east of Bacchus Station. He seems to have a pretty big area he can spawn in, so if you can't find any clues where he shows up on your map, try checking further north instead. He will flee if he sees you, so get a powerful rifle out and empty out five or so shots right into his head with Dead Eye to make sure he doesn't try to escape.
Legendary Moose
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Mature Venison (0.60), Legendary Moose Antler (N/A), Legendary Moose Pelt (35.00)
Notes: Our bright white, Legendary Moose pal is found in the far northeastern corner of the map. It is in the New Hanover region just west of the start of the large river that is in the northeast corner. You will likely find the first clue slightly north of the railroad tracks, but there is some variability here so keep on going into Eagle Eye if you're having trouble until you locate your first question mark.
Legendary Big Horn Ram
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gristly Mutton (0.45), Legendary Ram Horn (N/A), Legendary Ram Hide (27.00), Legendary Ram Carcass (28.50)
Notes: This legendary creature is in the southeast corner of Ambarino, almost directly west of Valentine and across the Dakota River. He has a fairly large area where he can spawn, going as far as Cattail Pond to the east. He isn't a threat to attack you, but he is very fast and will take off the moment he spots you. Keep after him, or immediately fire off an entire clip before he can run away.
Legendary Wolf
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Big Game Meat (0.75), Legendary Wolf Heart (N/A), Legendary Wolf Pelt (43.00), Legendary Wolf Carcass (46.00)
Notes: They will put up a pretty serious fight, so come prepared. The Legendary Wolf is found in Cotorra Springs, which is just west of Bacchus Bridge in Ambarino. If you haven't explored the area fully yet, it is south of the space between the "A" and the "R" in Ambarino. His clues are usually found slightly north of where his image appears on your map, and after you find the third clue and start walking towards him, he'll jump you before you have a chance to attack. Have your rifle out and as soon as you hear him or see him coming towards you, go into Dead Eye and get off as many shots as you can. The wolf will sink their teeth into you if you hesitate, so be careful while hunting this one.
