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.

The markers on the map below indicate where some alligators are at, but they really are all over the place. If you're around the coastline anywhere in Bluewater Marsh, you'll find one. The markers below are by no means exhaustive, but you will frequently find alligators at or near the following markers.

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.

The map below shows where alligators can be found, and both normal size and small alligators share the same habitats. The issue is small alligators are much rarer than the standard sized ones. Below are some alligator spawn points, but you may need to keep exploring the Bayou Nwa and Bluewater Marsh coastlines until you come across one. They are pretty common though, so it shouldn't be that hard to hunt some.

Nine-Banded Armadillo
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Poor Armadillo Skin (0.44), Good Armadillo Skin (0.66), Perfect Armadillo Skin (1.10), Poor Armadillo Carcass (1.00), Good Armadillo Carcass (1.50), Perfect Armadillo Carcass (2.50)

Notes: Armadillos can only be found in New Austin, and they are in decent abundance in the Gaptooth Ridge, Cholla Springs, and Rio Bravo regions. They seem to be in the highest abundance in Cholla Springs although they can be found in most areas of New Austin., you will want to use a Varmint Rifle if you are going for perfect quality loot.

The map below shows some possible armadillo locations in Cholla Springs. The bad news is they are much less common than the black tail jackrabbits, iguanas, and Gila monsters that occupy the area. Keep searching around the indicated areas below and you should find the armadillo rather quickly. Note that in your game it is unlikely you will find an armadillo in any of these locations, as there is an element of randomness to these exact positions. They will be close though, so search places close by.

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.

If you're specifically hunting for badgers, a good spot is in southwestern Lemoyne. There are a decent number near Catfish Jackson's, slightly north of the road that runs through here. You should be able to find one or two during each hunting trip. This area is heavily forested, so you will need to stop and look around frequently. I never found too many that deep in the forest, but close to the road they are somewhat common.

Little Brown Bat
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Bat Wing (0.15), Poor Bat Carcass (0.30), Good Bat Carcass (0.45), Perfect Bat Carcass (0.75)

Notes: The in-game description for these guys is that they're found in most of America. This game lies. They appear only in three very specific spots in the map and can be very hard to find. There is a secret entrance behind the waterfall at Elysian Pool that eventually leads to a bigger open room where bats can be found sometimes. They can be found at the abandoned church at Bolger Glade in southern Lemoyne. And they can be found at the small cabin at the Aurora Basin in western West Elizabeth. And, finally, there is a small cabin at Moonstone Pond in Ambarino that is crushed by a fallen tree. There are bats in the tree occasionally. However, that's pretty much it. They don't really appear outside of these areas, so you'll need to travel to one of them if you're hunting them. Small game arrows are best during hunting if you want a high quality carcass.

The most consistent place for me was at the hidden cave behind Elysian Pool. Enter through the waterfall, then go to the main central area. It is large and there is light pouring through here. Now, turn back around and go back to the entrance. Over the entrance, almost every time, will be three bats. Take your time when you get close, because as soon as they take off flying they usually crash into something and die. You can't find them when you first enter, and you need to go to the central area to get them to spawn again.

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. The good news is if you are your horse, they will almost always run away afraid so they are one of the easier predators to hunt. A rifle works best here, and something like a sniper rifle can actually kill a bear in a single heat shot.

A good spot to find a black bear is just north of Watson's Cabin. There tends to be a fairly stationary bear just north of the "W" from Watson's Cabin. He can move a little east or west, but there isn't a ton of variability to this spot. This makes him a good target as some of the other black bears seem to have a bit more variability. It is also good because there is a grizzly bear really close by so you can hunt both within a couple of minutes.

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.

One specific grizzly bear location is shown on the map below. It its northwest of Wallace Station and can be found most frequently anywhere in the red oval (although it can be a little outside as well).

North American Beaver
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): String Meat (0.25), Scent Glands (0.25), Animal Fat (0.25), Poor Beaver Fur (1.00), Good Beaver Fur (1.50), Perfect Beaver Fur (2.50), Poor Beaver Carcass (2.10), Good Beaver Carcass (3.15), Perfect Beaver Carcass (5.25)

Notes: There really aren't that many good places for beaver hunting in the game. They are must abundant near the Kamassa River. If you look south of the "E" and the "R" and west of the top of Van Horn you will find the Legendary Beaver habitat. A lot of normal beavers will be nearby here as well. They can be found both on the eastern and western shores around here, and there are usually a couple each time you visit (some specific spots are shown on the map below). You can also find a bunch of beavers along the south shore of Lake Owanjila in West Elizabeth from time to time. Outside of that, they can be fairly hard to find, so check these two areas first if you're going hunting. Use the Varmint Rifle when hiring to make sure you get high quality pelts and carcasses.

Blue Jay
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Blue Jay Feather (0.30), Poor Blue Jay Carcass (0.40), Good Blue Jay Carcass (0.60), Perfect Blue Jay Carcass (1.00)

Notes: Blue Jays are one of many small birds you'll find in this game. There are a decent amount in the Heartlands region, and you can find some right around Horseshoe Overlook and Caliban's seat. The best way to get a perfect carcass is a bow with small game arrows. They don't drop anything all that remarkable, and are hard to find, making them really not worth hunting unless you are trying to find and study all the animals.

The most consistent spot to hunt these is right along the Dakota River. If you go to the text for the Dakota River that is to the southeast of Wallace Station, you will notice a lot of fairly large rocks either in the river or along the river side. These rocks go from the top of the text to the southern point of the river bend. There are a lot of birds all over these rocks, and one of the kinds you can find are blue jays. However, they are not guaranteed to be here and you can also find cardinals or other birds. Search all along the coastline (particularly the spots highlighted below as I can guaranteed blue jays can be found there from time to time), and if you don't see any, rest and return as the position of the birds will be changed.

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 rifle works just as well and requires far less crafting.

A really high concentration of boars can be found in northeastern Lemoyne. Just north of the "A" the "T" and the "E" of the Bluewater Marsh text is a lot of open ground with some sparse trees. There are a good number of boars just wandering around here and you can find them in groups of two or three or just by themselves. Some specific spots they may be found at are shown below, but these animals wander a bit and their exact positing seems a bit random. But anywhere in this general vicinity is good for hunting.

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 bucks are essentially found in all the same places as whitetail deer, but in far lower abundance. For every one buck you find, you'll usually find five deer so hunting one down can be a bit more of a pain. One good spot is in northwestern Lemyone, and there are a lot of plains and forests in the area with a huge number of deer. There are fewer bucks, of course, but there are still a decent number here and you should be able to find some if you hunt for a while. Some possible spawn spots are shown below.

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.

Whitetail deer are over the place, so it is unlikely you'll need help finding some. However, if for some reason you're having trouble, you can check northwestern Lemoyne because they're pretty much all over the place up here. I've outlined some of the places where deer can be found, but their range is rather large and they are very mobile. Pretty much anywhere by any of these markers below are good spots to search for Whitetail Deer.

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.

A great spot to find some is in central New Hanover, just to the west of the Heartland Overflow. In fact, in between the "H" and the "A" of the New Hanover text, you can usually find an entire herd of around 10 bison all grouped together. So, if you need to hunt bison, this is a great place to find some.

Angus Bull
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Prime Beef (0.60), Bull Horns (0.45), Poor Bull Hide (1.40), Good Bull Hide (2.10), Perfect Bull Hide (3.50)

Notes: Angus bulls can be found on various ranches throughout the game. You will find them in the same area as cows. However, any ranch or farm you find cows on, you will usually find ten or so cows and then only one bull. This makes these guys harder to find, particularly when there are two other species of bulls running around out there. Use one of your sniper rifles while hunting to ensure you get perfect quality loot.

A nice consistent area to find an Angus bull is at the Hanging Dog Ranch in northwestern New Hanover. On the west side of the ranch will be a handful of cows and a single Angus bull. The bad news is that this is a gang hideout, so if you kill the bull you will almost certainly alert the guards and need to fight through them. So be careful, and if you're just studying the bull consider staying outside the perimeter of the ranch and using your binoculars to help.

Devon Bull
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Prime Beef (0.60), Bull Horns (0.45), Poor Bull Hide (1.40), Good Bull Hide (2.10), Perfect Bull Hide (3.50)

Notes: Devon bulls are found on various ranches throughout the game. There isn't really one specific region that has more Devon bulls than others, and you should always check when you stop by a ranch as some have one while others don't. They'll be located either in or nearby a larger pen with cows. Typically, most ranches will have a bunch of cows and only one bull, so go into the pen and look for the one that's different. Either a bow with improved arrows or one of your powerful rifles can be used to secure a perfect quality hide.

One specific spot that a Devon bull is likely to spawn at is Carmody Dell in central New Hanover (just to the northeast of the Heartland Oil Fields). There is a large pen with a bunch of cows. Look around and find the largest one to locate the bull. The bull in this pen is extremely likely to be a Devon bull, so study and/or kill it depending on what you're trying to do.

Hereford Bull
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Prime Beef (0.60), Bull Horns (0.45), Poor Bull Hide (1.40), Good Bull Hide (2.10), Perfect Bull Hide (3.50)

Notes: Like the other kinds of bulls, the Hereford Bulls can be found on ranches throughout the game. The bad news is these guys are a lot rarer than cows. So typically a ranch will have a bunch of cows and only one bull. And, of all the bulls, the Hereford Bull seems like the rarest so it may take some time to actually find a ranch that has one. If you're going for a perfect hide, use one of your high powered rifles to get a clean kill. Almost everything else will only wound the bull and result with a less than perfect quality hide.

A good, semi-consistent spot I found was at the Hill Haven Ranch near central Lemoyne. This ranch is just a little north of Rhodes, and slightly to the northeast of Mattock Pond. There is a single bull here, and most of the time it will be a Hereford Bull. I have also seen other people find other bull types here, but the Hereford Bull seems like the most common one to find. There is only one bull here and it will be in a separate, small pen attached to the larger pen for cows.

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.

One really good spot to find bullfrogs is in the far northeastern corner of Lemoyne. There is a small shack in this area call Copperhead Landing, and there will be several bullfrogs in this general area. Check all along the coastline nearby and you should find a handful in this area alone.

Northern Cardinal
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Cardinal Feather (0.30), Poor Cardinal Carcass (0.40), Good Cardinal Carcass (0.60), Perfect Cardinal Carcass (1.00)

Notes: While they can technically be found in every region, they are typically quite rare with only a handful of spawn spots in entire states. They are easiest to find and most abundant in forested areas of West Elizabeth and New Hanover. They are particularly abundant in southwestern New Hanover, nearby the New Hanover/West Elizabeth border. While hunting, make sure you use a bow with small game arrows if you want perfect quality loot.

One particularly lucky spot I found was in the middle of the Dakota River between the New Hanover and West Elizabeth border. Just west of the "D" and "A" of the Dakota River text are some rocks (they appear as small islands on your map), and you can usually find two to three there each time you come. If you're unlucky, you may find some other birds instead, so leave, sleep, and come back to try your luck again.

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.

There are cats all over the game, but a good spot to study some is at Emerald Ranch. That ranch in particular has a ton of different domesticated animals, so it is convenient to get them all done at once. There will typically be two cats here, one on the northern end and one on the southern end over by the houses.

Cedar Waxwing
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Cedar Waxwing Feather (0.30), Poor Waxwing Carcass (0.40), Good Waxwing Carcass (0.60), Perfect Waxwing Carcass (1.00)
Notes: Waxwings are extremely rare birds and very difficult to find. The description for them in game is they inhabit open and forested areas across the states, which simply isn't true. To the best of my knowledge, they only have a handful of spawn spots and can't even be found in several states. One of the best places to find them is in northeastern West Elizabeth, right near the border of West Elizabeth/Ambarino/New Hanover. This is northeast of Wallace Station. If you are going for a perfect quality carcass, use a bow with small game arrows.
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. The can be found at pretty much all ranches in the game with a few exceptions.

A good spot to find the Dominique Chicken is at Emerald Ranch. There is a chicken coop in the southwestern corner of the ranch, and it is filled with a variety of chicken. You can actually find all three chicken types in this coop most of the time, so if you're filling out your Compendium, this is a really good place to go looking for them.

Dominique Rooster
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Plump Bird Meat (0.40), Rooster Feather (0.30), Poor Rooster Carcass (0.80), Good Rooster Carcass (1.20), Perfect Rooster Carcass (2.00)
Notes: Like its chicken equivalent, these guys are typically found on ranches. They are often in the very same spot as the chicken, so if you find some chickens make sure you look for a rooster too as it tends to be a lot more rare and there will usually only be one on each ranch. You can kill and pluck this for its feathers if you want, but be careful ranch hands don't see you or they'll alert local lawmen.
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.

A good spot to find multiple Java Chicken is at Emerald Ranch. There is a chicken coop in the southwestern corner of the ranch, and it is filled with a variety of chicken. You can actually find all three chicken types in this coop most of the time, so if you're filling out your Compendium, this is a really good place to go looking for them.

Java Rooster
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Plump Bird Meat (0.40), Rooster Feather (0.30), Poor Rooster Carcass (0.80), Good Rooster Carcass (1.20), Perfect Rooster Carcass (2.00)

Notes: Java Roosters can typically be found in the same spots as Java Chickens. The only issue is that while there tend to be multiple types of chicken at a given spot, there is only one rooster. Chicken and rooster breeds are somewhat randomized in that you know where they will be but you don't always know which ones will be there. Search ranches throughout the game to find roosters and keep on searching until your find the breed of rooster you're looking for. Try hunting these at night so people on the ranch don't see you, and use a bow with small game arrows for high quality carcasses.

A good potential hunting spot is at Emerald Ranch in New Hanover. There is a good sized chicken coop in the southwestern corner of the ranch. There will always be one chicken here, and you can find the Java Rooster here occasionally. Note that there is randomness as to which type it will be, so if it is the wrong type try reloading a previous save or killing the rooster, saving, and then reloading the save file. Sometimes killing it seems to help change which variant it is upon a return visit, so keep that in mind if you're having a hard time finding the Java Rooster.

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.

Emerald Ranch is an ideal spot to go hunting for Leghorn Chicken. There is a chicken coop in the southwestern corner of the ranch, and it is filled with a variety of chicken. You can actually find all three chicken types in this coop most of the time, so if you're filling out your Compendium, this is a really good place for hunting purposes.

Leghorn Rooster
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Plump Bird Meat (0.40), Rooster Feather (0.30), Poor Rooster Carcass (0.80), Good Rooster Carcass (1.20), Perfect Rooster Carcass (2.00)

Notes: The final rooster types, these guys are found wherever Leghorn Chickens are found at. Check every ranch you come across as they'll tend to have at least one breed of chickens/roosters. Like the others, you only need to study this to fulfill the requirement of the Compendium. If you want a perfect carcass, you will need to use a bow with small game arrows.

A common spot to find a Leghorn Rooster is at Emerald Ranch. If you check the southwestern corner of the ranch, there will be a decent sized chicken coop that holds roughly ten different chicken. There is a single rooster found here as well. The problem is that while all three chicken variants are at this location, only one rooster will be and there is some randomness as to which one it is. If you do not find the one you're looking for, try reloading your file. I've had decent luck killing the rooster, repeating a previously completed mission, and then returning and finding a different rooster type. Keep trying this or reloading saves until you get the rooster you're looking for. Alternatively, check other ranches as there is usually at least one rooster per ranch.

Greater Prairie 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: This chicken breed is fairly unique in that it is the only chicken type that is commonly found in the wild and not on ranches. It will only be found in the Great Plains region of West Elizabeth, and cannot be found in other states. The bow with small game arrows is your best bet for scoring perfect quality loot.
Western Chipmunk
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Stringy Meat (0.25), Poor Chipmunk Carcass (0.20), Good Chipmunk Carcass (0.30), Perfect Chipmunk Carcass (0.50)
Notes: Unlike squirrels which can be found just about everywhere, chipmunks are just a bit harder to come by. They still appear in every state (except New Austin) but they are typically localized to heavily forested areas and won't be found running through grasslands. Northeastern New Hanover might be the best spot for this, and you can usually find some in any bit of forest up there. Since these guys are so small, your only hope for a perfect carcass is hunting with a bow and small game arrows.
Californian Condor
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Condor Feather (1.50), Poor Condor Carcass (1.30), Good Condor Carcass (1.95), Perfect Condor Carcass (3.25)
Notes: Condors are essentially only found in New Austin. You can sometimes find one flying about just around everywhere in New Austin, so keep an eye out for any huge birds flying around (or perched on signs or trees). I tended to have my best luck all the way to the west of the state, just past Tumbleweed. You can get a perfect carcass by using a Varmint Rifle, but if you're just going for condor feathers you can kill them with any gun you have and get the loot.
Cougar
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Big Game Meat (0.75), Cougar Fang (0.50), Poor Cougar Fur (2.00), Good Cougar Fur (3.00), Perfect Cougar Fur (5.00), Poor Cougar Carcass (5.40), Good Cougar Carcass (8.10), Perfect Cougar Carcass (13.50)
Notes: There are only a handful of spots that cougars spawn. There is one up in northeastern New Hanover (a little southwest of Brandywine Drop), one in the far west of West Elizabeth (a little northwest of Lake Owanjila), and a couple of spots in New Austin (Cholla Springs and Rio Bravo). These guys can be a pain, and they close in on you quickly and can kill you in two bites. Still, the loot they drop is definitely worth it. You'll want to use one of your rifles and aim for a head shot to kill these guys quickly and score the highest quality loot.
Double-Crested Cormorant
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.75), Flight Feather (0.15), Cormorant Feather (1.20), Poor Cormorant Carcass (1.10), Good Cougar Cormorant (1.65), Perfect Cormorant Carcass (2.75)

Notes: The cormorant can be a bit of a pain to find, as they don't really appear in many places. They are found almost exclusively in or near water in southern Lemoyne, or parts of New Hanover and West Elizabeth. They are almost never found actually flying around, so you will have to travel to waterfronts and search the coastline. These look like slightly larger birds, but they are still small enough that you'll need to use a bow with small game arrows to get perfect carcasses.

One good hunting spot is in the Dakota River between New Hanover and West Elizabeth. Southwest of Valentine and southwest of Caliban's Seat is a small ranch called Painted Sky. Follow the Dakota River westward from here. It eventually heads north, and near the bottom point right before it turns north will be some small pieces of land in the river. You can find some cormorants resting on one of these small pieces of land.

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.

The good thing about these cows is they are on just about every ranch you visit. If you want a specific example, check out the Hill Haven Ranch in central Lemoyne. This ranch is just a little north of Rhodes, just to the northeast of Mattock Pond. There are a whole bunch of Florida Cracker Cows here. Wait until nightfall and you can hunt them without much trouble.

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).

A good spot to find one if you're having trouble is Emerald Ranch in central New Hanover. There are actually two here. Both are on the eastern end of the ranch. One tends to sit outside of the fence, and the other one tends to be outside one of the two houses in the northeastern corner of the ranch. These guys can wander a bit, but they'll always be found somewhere on the ranch.

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.

One spot where you are guaranteed to find one is at Emerald Ranch. During the daytime, there will always be a bloodhound laying down right outside the front of the house. The house is on the east end of the ranch, and if you check right outside the front door in the grassy area in front of the house you can find the bloodhound usually. He may occasionally wander a bit, but he appears to be a fairly lazy doggie that doesn't go far from this area.

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.

The dog in Valentine can typically be in front of the house across from the saloon on the east side of town. He will occasionally be found on the main street on the north end of town, but you should check the house first as he doesn't move from there that often.

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.
Siberian Husky
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): N/A
Notes: A very rare puppy. For some reason, I had the hardest time tracking one of these down. They are supposed to appear in towns and ranches throughout the game, but all the other dogs seem more common. I finally found a couple at the Manzanita Post in West Elizabeth.
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.
Standard Donkey
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): N/A

Notes: Donkeys are found on ranches in pretty much every state in the game. You can usually find at least one at Carmody Dell or Emerald Ranch in New Hanover. Most decent sized ranches will at least have one though, so you probably don't need to go to these two specific locations.

If you do want a specific spot to find a donkey, travel to Carmody Dell in central New Hanover. It is just to the northeast of the Heartland Oil Fields. There will be a standard donkey in the pen with all the cows.

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.

One good hunting spot is right at the Heartland Overflow. The pond on the east side of the overflow (right where the second "N" of the New Hanover text is) is filled with ducks and there is a good mixture of both mallard ducks and pekin ducks here. The flock is roughly ten birds in total, so you will find plenty of both.

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.

As I said above, one of the best duck hunting spots is in the Heartland Overflow in central New Hanover. You'll find a bunch of pekin and mallard ducks at the same time and you will be able to study/kill both at the same time. Shooting one will cause the whole flock to fly off, so be ready with your Dead Eye if you're trying to kill more than one.

Bald Eagle
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Eagle Talon (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Eagle Feather (1.50), Poor Eagle Carcass (1.40), Good Eagle Carcass (2.10), Perfect Eagle Carcass (3.50)

Notes: As an American, I feel kind of bad about this. But we need that 100% compendium completion! The Bald Eagle is pretty much localized to mountainous regions of Ambarino and West Elizabeth, and you can frequently find them on peaks or on a cliffside. The Varmint Rifle will help you get the perfect quality carcass.

One consistent spot to find some eagles, without requiring you to travel up a mountainside, is along the Dakota River. Right along the actual text of the Dakota River just to the southeast of Wallace Station are some rocks in the middle of the river. There will be some large rocks either in the middle of the river or along the riverside. There are a lot of birds that can appear here, on top of the rocks, and amongst them can be eagles. These are a lot rarer than some of the other birds, but if you check along the river here you will usually find one. Sleep or reload your game to try to find a different variety of birds if you can't find the ones you're looking for. One common spot for bald eagles to appear is shown below.

Golden Eagle
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Eagle Talon (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Eagle Feather (1.50), Poor Eagle Carcass (1.40), Good Eagle Carcass (2.10), Perfect Eagle Carcass (3.50)

Notes: Golden eagles are found in pretty much the same habitats as bald eagles. They are primarily found in the mountains of West Elizabeth or Ambarino and will almost always be located along the edge of some cliffside. Using the Varmint Rifle can ensure you get a perfect kill quality.

One very common spawn location is just along the Dakota River by Cumberland Falls. There is a series of cliffs near the western shore of the river that goes from Cumberland Falls down towards where the Little Creek River feeds into the Dakota River. There is very frequently a golden eagle almost directly east of Wallace Station right nearby the river. If you cannot find it there, try exploring up and down the river a little bit from Cumberland Falls to the Little Creek River. There is almost always a golden eagle somewhere in this vicinity. Save and reload as need if you are having a hard time finding it as it may have flown away. Alternatively, you can usually find eagles (and hawks) on top of either of the cliffs at the Twin Stack Pass in central New Hanover.

Reddish Egret
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Reddish Egret Plume (2.00), Poor Egret Carcass (1.40), Good Egret Carcass (2.10), Perfect Egret Carcass (3.50)

Notes: There are three different egrets that all occupy the same territories in the swamplands of Bayou Nwa. Those are the Reddish Egret, the Little Egret, and the Snowy Egret. What is slightly annoying is that they all share the same spawn spots and which ones appear at a given time is completely random. A good spot I found for all three is in the west end of Bayou Nwa, west of the "Bayou Nwa" text and right before the railroad track. There are a ton of egrets in this area usually, and you can farm as many as you need by saving and reloading or sleeping until the birds return. Varmint rifles are best when hunting to ensure you get a high quality carcass.

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.
Banded Gila Monster
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Herptile Meat (0.25), Poor Gila Skin (0.50), Good Gila Skin (0.75), Perfect Gila Skin (1.25), Poor Gila Carcass (1.10), Good Gila Carcass (1.60), Perfect Gila Carcass (2.75)
Notes: These guys are located exclusively in the middle of New Austin. They're only in the desert area of the region, and that is pretty much localized to the middle of New Austin. They're fairly fast for small creatures, but you can easily chase them down on horseback. Varmint Rifle is the best option for hunting here.
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.

Alpine Goats are found on a variety of ranches, and one guaranteed spot will be at Emerald Ranch. In the southwestern portion of the ranch will be a small pen that has a bunch of chickens. There will also be two goats here as well. Again, killing them loses some honor and will get the ranches to start shooting at you during the day, so wait until night if you're hunting goats.

Canada Goose
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Plump Bird Meat (0.40), Animal Fat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Goose Feather (0.45), Poor Goose Carcass (1.00), Good Goose Carcass (1.50), Perfect Goose Carcass (2.50)

Notes: Geese can be found near certain sources of water in New Hanover primarily, but also in West Elizabeth and Lemoyne. They are almost always near a water source, though, so search by bodies of water if you're hunting geese. The Varmint Rifle is your best bet to get a perfect carcass and most other weapons damage the body.

A great hunting spot is nearby the Heartland Overflow in central New Hanover. You can usually find an entire flock of geese just south of the Heartland Overflow text, resting in the grass. There will also be some airborne in this general area as well, but there can be up to ten right in the middle of the area and you can find several perfect specimen here each time usually.

Red-Tailed Hawk
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Hawk Feather (1.50), Poor Hawk Carcass (1.30), Good Hawk Carcass (1.95), Perfect Hawk Carcass (3.25)

Notes: These hawks can be found in New Austin, West Elizabeth, or New Hanover, and then to be in open fields of those three regions. They seem most prevalent in New Austin near the middle of the area, and they frequently perch on top of cactuses in the desert area. Like most birds, the Varmint Rifle is your best bet to getting a high quality carcass.

One possible spot to find some is at the Twin Stack Pass in central New Hanover (in the northern Heartlands region). There are two large cliffs on either side of the road here, and you can find a red-tailed hawk on the top of either cliff. You will be able to see them from roadside and can study them with binoculars or shoot them with your rifle from down there. It isn't just hawks that appear in the area, and you can find other large birds like eagles as well. Save and reload as needed until you find one.

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 especially in 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.

One potential hunting spot is along the Little Creek River in northern West Elizabeth. You can actually find a couple on the ground right by the river, or some will occasionally be flying by the edge of the forest just north of here. Go back and forth along the river until you find one. One particularly common spot is to the right of the word "river" on your map. There is a portion where the river loops around and almost forms a circle. There tends to be an owl on the ground right here where there is a little strip of land that stops it from fully connecting to a circle.

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.

One spot an Angus Ox can be found is at Emerald Ranch. There is a large pen full of Florida Cracker Cows near the middle of the ranch. Amongst all of these cows will be a single ox. It is a different color than all the cows in the pen, so while he looks similar to the cows he sticks out enough you should be able to find him. It is best to show up at night if you are planning to hunt it, because if you hunt him with a bow and arrow you can kill and skin him without alerting the ranchers.

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)

Notes: Another coastal bird, they can be found in the coastal regions of West Elizabeth, New Hanover, or Lemoyne. They're frequently found right along the water front in the areas, so check along the shoreline.

Ring-Necked Pheasant
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Game Meat (0.60), Animal Fat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Pheasant Feather (0.45), Poor Pheasant Carcass (1.20), Good Pheasant Carcass (1.80), Perfect Pheasant Carcass (3.00)

Notes: Pheasants can be kind of hard to find, but the good news is that both variants tend to be found together in the same location so you can frequently nab them both at once. Their habitat is most commonly in grassy areas, somewhat close to rivers, in both New Hanover and West Elizabeth and are not really found outside those states. You will need a bow with small game arrows in order to get perfect carcasses.

A good hunting spot is right along the Little Creek River in northern West Elizabeth. You can actually find a good number here (in addition to a lot of other birds you may be missing) so explore up and down the coastline. A good spawn spot is right above the word "River" on your map and you can frequently find a group of three here, right near the river and down on the ground.

Chinese Ring-Necked Pheasant
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Game Meat (0.60), Animal Fat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Pheasant Feather (0.45), Poor Pheasant Carcass (1.20), Good Pheasant Carcass (1.80), Perfect Pheasant Carcass (3.00)

Notes: Pretty much everything I said above about the Ring-Necked Pheasant is true here too, and it is often best to try and just hunt them at the same time. Their habitat is grassy areas of New Hanover and West Elizabeth, primarily near rivers. You can only get perfect carcasses with a bow and small game arrows.

The same good hunting spot mentioned above applies here as well. Go to the Little Creek River in northern West Elizabeth. There are a couple of different spots near the river that they will appear, but one of the best ones is just north of the word "River" on your map. Check the northern shoreline and you can frequently find a group of three. If you get unlucky and all three are the same type, you can always save and reload and try again.

Berkshire 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: 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.

The best spot to find one of these pigs is in Valentine, because there is a spot that actually lets you study all three pigs all at once. If you go to the south side of town, you will see some livestock. If you are walking in from the south entrance, look to your left. Don't go to the first building on your left, but the one slightly north of that. If you check outside of the building you will actually say it says "pigs" on the outside. Check the pen in the southern corner of the building and you will find a spot that is holding a Berkshire pig, a Big China pig, and an old spot pig. Study all three before moving on.

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.

As I mentioned in the previous entry, a good spot to find one of these pigs is in Valentine. If you go to the south side of town, you will see some livestock. If you are walking in from the south entrance, look to your left. Don't go to the first building on your left, but the one slightly north of that. If you check outside of the building you will actually say it says "pigs" on the outside. Check the pen in the southern corner of the building and you will find a spot that is holding a Berkshire pig, a Big China pig, and an old spot pig. Study all three before moving on.

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.

As mentioned in the previous two entires, the best spot to find one of these pigs is in Valentine as he'll be alongside the other two pig variants. This is still in the same building described above. If you go to the south side of town, you will see some livestock. If you are walking in from the south entrance, look to your left. Don't go to the first building on your left, but the one slightly north of that. If you check outside of the building you will actually say it says "pigs" on the outside. Check the pen in the southern corner of the building and you will find a spot that is holding a Berkshire pig, a Big China pig, and an old spot pig. Study all three before moving on.

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.
Baja California 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: Located entirely in New Austin, they tend to be most common in Gaptooth Ridge or Rio Bravo. They also are found in the Cholla Springs region with high regularity. The best weapons for hunting are rifles or bows.
Desert 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: Found in New Austin. They can be found sparsely in most of the region, but they are most common in the south or the west of the region. A rifle or poison arrows will ensure perfect quality loot while hunting.
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. They really are just about everywhere though, and if you kill an animal or enemy, there is a good chance you can come back and find ravens scavenging on their body. 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.

A good, consistent spot for a lot of ravens is in norther West Elizabeth, right near the Little Creek River. There is a open, grassy area on either side of the river and you can walk up and down it and usually find some airborne ravens nearby. If you are having trouble, try killing an animal and waiting for ravens to come and scavenge on it.

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.

There are plenty of ranches in the game that have sheep on them, but a really good spot to find some is at Emerald Ranch in central New Hanover. The southwestern pen on the ranch has roughly ten sheep in it. Wait until night and you can hunt as many as you want without ranch hands trying to kill you.

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.

A really good hunting spot is in and near the Dakota River. The best spot is right around the Dakota River text just southeast of Wallace Station. There are a bunch of rocks in the water here in the middle of the river, and these birds can be found on these rocks or on other rocks that pop up around the river side. There are a lot of different birds here, including this one and the Western Tanager Songbird variant. They will sometimes be on the same rock, and there are a handful of other birds that can be found here too making this a great bird hunting spot. The best, most consistent spot is southeast of the text, right at the bend of the river. There are usually a handful here together, making it a good spot to get a handful at once. Be aware that it seems random if you will get the Scarlet Tanager or the Western Tanager Songbird variant, so you may need to reload your game and come back if you get unlucky.

Western 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: This variant is found essentially all of the same places as the Scarlet Tanager Songbird and they'll actually typically be found right next to each other at the same time. Their habitat is scattered around New Austin, West Elizabeth, and New Hanover. They're frequently found near bodies or water. A bow with small game arrows is necessary for the prefect quality carcass.

A really good hunting spot is along the Dakota River, particularly right around the Dakota River text just southeast of Wallace Station. There are a bunch of rocks in the water here, both by the text and south of it at the bend of the river. There are a variety of birds here, including songbirds both in the rocks in the middle and on some of those by the riverbank. There is a lot of variety as to which birds appear, so if you don't see some you can sleep and return, or reload your save.

American Tree Sparrow
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Sparrow Feather (0.30), Poor Sparrow Carcass (0.40), Good Sparrow Carcass (0.60), Perfect Sparrow Carcass (1.00)

Notes: Sparrows are one of this game's many species of small birds that can be quite hard to find. They are primarily found in the grasslands of West Elizabeth and New Hanover, but smaller quantities can also be found in southwestern Lemoyne and certain woody areas of Ambarino as well. The only way to get a perfect carcass is by using a bow with small game arrows.

A good spot for sparrow hunting is just west of the Heartland Overflow in New Hanover. You can find small flocks airborne in the area just west of the "A" from the New Hanover Text on your map. You can also find them near the water of the Heartland Overflow, either resting on the ground or in the air. If you see any small birds flying or taking flight when you get close, immediately study them or take out your bow as it is possibly one of the sparrows. There are other small birds here though, as well, so be prepared to rest and/or save and reload to help replenish the birds after they fly away.

Eurasian Tree Sparrow
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Sparrow Feather (0.30), Poor Sparrow Carcass (0.40), Good Sparrow Carcass (0.60), Perfect Sparrow Carcass (1.00)

Notes: Another small bird in the sparrow group, these birds are found in essentially the same place as the other two sparrow types. They will frequently be found together, in the same small group, and are most common in the grasslands of West Elizabeth and New Hanover. If you're hunting for a perfect carcass, you need a bow with small game arrows.

A good, consistent hunting spot is at the Heartland Overflow in central New Hanover. They can be found along the coastline of the western creek of the overflow, and can also be found flying in the area between the "H" and the "A" of the New Hanover text. They will be on the ground by the creek and flying in the grassland area, so look for any small birds you see overhead.

Golden Crown Sparrow
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Sparrow Feather (0.30), Poor Sparrow Carcass (0.40), Good Sparrow Carcass (0.60), Perfect Sparrow Carcass (1.00)

Notes: This species of sparrow can be foundpretty much in the same spots as the other sparrows and are primarily located in the grasslands of West Elizabeth and New Hanover. They seem to be the rarest of the sparrow species, and although you will find them often with the other two they frequently are in far fewer numbers. The only way to get a perfect carcass is by using a bow with small game arrows.

Like the other sparrows, a good hunting spot is at the Heartland Overflow in central New Hanover. They can be found flying in groups of other sparrows just to the west of the Heartland Overflow. A good, consistent spot appears to be just south of the "E" of the text from Overflow. There is a small pond here, and a golden crown sparrow specifically seems to spawn at this spot, in addition to one other spot just north of the "H" from Heartland. Be careful when getting close, though, as these birds are very easy to spook.

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.

One good hunting spot is just west of Rhodes. There are usually a lot in between the "H" of the Rhodes text and the Flat Iron Lake shoreline directly west. There really isn't a bad hunting spot for turkey as you'll bump into them all the time, but this is one particular spot that seems to have a very high spawn rate.

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.
Eastern Turkey Vulture
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Vulture Feather (1.20), Poor Vulture Carcass (0.40), Good Vulture Carcass (0.60), Perfect Vulture Carcass (1.00)

Notes: The eastern turkey vultures are found in, well, the east. You can find them in central and eastern New Hanover and also in Lemoyne. They're very large birds, and you will frequently find them flying or perched on top of some cliff or ledge. Since they're so large, if you're going for perfect carcasses you'll want to use the Varmint Rifle.

One potential location to find these vultures is at the Twin Stack Pass in central New Hanover (just south of the "W" of New on your map). If you ride through the road, there will be two large cliffs to your north and south. You can find turkey vultures there, at the very top, along with some other large birds. A lot of the time they'll be a little on the eastern face of the cliff, but there is some variability. And since several types of large birds spawn here, you might not find one on your first trip. Save and reload and try again if you're having difficulty.

Western Turkey Vulture
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Vulture Feather (1.20), Poor Vulture Carcass (0.40), Good Vulture Carcass (0.60), Perfect Vulture Carcass (1.00)

Notes: In what will be a total surprise to you , you can find western turkey vultures in western areas. Since they're so large, if you're going for perfect carcasses you'll want to use the Varmint Rifle. There are a ton in New Austin, and a handful more you can find in West Elizabeth. The area around Armadillo is particularly good for finding these vultures. Like the other turkey vulture, using a Varmint Rifle will help you get the highest quality kills.

One good spot outside of Armadillo that I found for hunting these guys is in northern West Elizabeth near the Little Creek River. A good hunting trick is to look for other birds, kill them, and then leave for a bit. Turkey vultures will show up to pick at the carcasses, so keep an eye towards the sky as you'll see them circling from far away before they land. This works best in the middle or eastern portions of the river.

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.
Red-Bellied Woodpecker
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Gamey Bird Meat (0.25), Flight Feather (0.15), Woodpecker Feather (0.30), Poor Woodpecker Carcass (0.40), Good Woodpecker Carcass (0.60), Perfect Woodpecker Carcass (1.00)

Notes: These guys can be found nearby most bodies of water, and are very abundant in West Elizabeth and the Roanoke Ridge area of New Hanover. They are very small and very fast, so you will want to try to study from afar using binoculars. If you're hunting, you will need a bow with small game arrows to get perfect quality carcasses.

One specific spot that frequently spawns red-bellied woodpeckers is in the Dakota River, right near Cumberland Falls. There can actually be a couple here either in the rocks in the middle of the river or somewhere along the cliffsides on either side of the river just south of Cumberland Falls. A lot of small birds spawn here, and it seems like you will either find woodpeckers, orioles, or blue jays in this specific spot. You may have to save and reload several times to find one.

Legendary Bull Gator
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Big Game Meat (0.75), Legendary Alligator Tooth (N/A), Legendary Alligator Skin (50.00)

Notes: While you will run into this legendary animal during the course of your normal playthrough, you actually won't be able to hunt and kill him until you start Chapter 6. Before that, he will be quite stubborn and refuses to spawn. Afterwards, you will find his lair just south of Lagras. His first clue location tends to be slightly northeast of the "O" from the Bayou Nwa text on the map, just to the east of the road. Be careful while hunting him, because he is a fearsome foe that can kill you in a single hit. And, unlike a lot of other animals, he will charge you the first time you shoot him. Use one of your rifles, go into Dead Eye, and target its head as many times as possible. Be prepared, because the creature will likely not die from your first garage and will charge you. Go into Dead Eye with a second volley of headshots and you should be able to kill him before he gets to you.

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 Tatanka Bison
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Prime Beef (0.60), Legendary Tatanka Bison Horn (N/A), Legendary Tatanka Bison Pelt (32.50)

Notes: The Tatanka Bison is a bit hard to get to, and you likely won't find it until at least the first part of the Epilogue. The bison is found in the furthest east portion of New Austin. On your map, the bison will appear directly south of the Stillwater Creek text on your map, just south of the southern railroad track in the area. The first clue tends to be further west of where the drawing of the buffalo is on your map, close by where the road is. Like the Legendary White Bison you likely fought earlier, the Tatanka Bison can take a whole bunch of damage. Try to go for multiple headshots, and fire from the back of your horse. That way, if it takes off you'll easily be able to chase after it.

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 Buck
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Mature Venison (0.60), Legendary Buck Antler (N/A), Legendary Buck Pelt (29.00), Legendary Buck Carcass (31.50)

Notes: You'll need to go to the Big Valley region of West Elizabeth to find the Legendary Buck. It's area is just south of the "B" of the Big Valley text on your map. His clues tend to be a little north of where the drawing is on your map, in the Black Bone Forest. He is one of the quicker legendary animals to flee, so once you find him put in as many bullets as you can. A single headshot with a rifle should kill him, but it is better to err on the side of safety.

Legendary Cougar
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Big Game Meat (0.75), Legendary Cougar Fang (N/A), Legendary Cougar Pelt (47.00), Legendary Cougar Carcass (50.00)

Notes: Found in the far west of New Austin, the the Gaptooth Ridge region. The first clue is usually just to the east of the bottom of the first "T" from the Gaptooth Ridge text. She is extremely aggressive, and the first time you shoot her she will charge at you. Rifles are good here if you have good aim or you can just fire off a salvo of bullets from the repeater to take her down.

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 Pronghorn
Loot Dropped (Sell Price): Mature Venison (0.60), Legendary Pronghorn Claw (N/A), Legendary Pronghorn Hide (24.00), Legendary Pronghorn Carcass (26.50)

Notes: This one is likely one of the last legendary creatures you'll find as it is located in southern New Austin. It is towards the middle of the southern border of New Austin, to the west of the Rio Del Lobo Rock region. Once you find its habitat, check your map. The first clue tends to be right around where its head is drawn on your map. It is fairly easy to kill, so just make sure you fire off as many shots as you can at once because otherwise it will flee and you'll need to chase it down.

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 west. 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.
