To get a perfect pelt, first, you need to study your prey, once studied, beside its name it'll show the quality of the prey, while looking at the prey, press R1 or RB to show info so that it will show what type of weapon and ammo to use to kill it with one shot preferably on the head or if you have a more leveled up dead eye, any highligted weakness it shows, I suggest you use a binocular from far away to study it, and don't forget to kill it with one shot otherwise the quality will degrade.

I never get the option to study my prey, I guess I'm out of range with my long scope sniper rifle. When I get closer they usually spook. Yet I don't use cover scent or pay attention to the wind, clear shot from far away usually does the trick.

The glitches never end. I was hunting again and somehow I had lost all my ammo for the Varmint rifle, 0. I had bought the max amount, shot it 3 times and empty grrr. Then I almost lost my perfect boar pelt in a wolf attack. My horse uselessly threw me off again with no useful weapons to use so I went beserk on them and punched them all out one by one. Bring it own you crap wolves, fist fight to the death, works much better than a revolver. Pelt saved.

The crap AI never seizes to amaze as well. At the end of a mission I had to flee the police in the harbor. So I try to hide under a dock. Nope, AI can see through everything. After a mad dash I jumped in a row boat and casually rowed off. They had no answer to that... I have no clue why they were after me in the first place, just got a $10 bounty at the end of the mission to get me to clear out I guess.

Ok, back to the gun smith to rebuy ammo for the varmint gun. So far only 1 poor rabbit pelt. Either an arrow doesn't work or it was just a crap rabbit. My horse has trampled a dozen over the course of the game yet that doesn't yield any good pelts either :)

My second tip I wrote,  USE YOUR BINOCULARS,  you can zoom in and also study them =p

Did anyone else read this as R2D2?

A scope works the same as binoculars, although maybe you have to be closer with the gun scope than with the binoculars. I'm using the longest scope on the sniper rifle.

Damn what a waste. I just did the Maverick style mission and R* cut the fun part so ridiculously short that it was completely pointless. It doesn't even leave an option to actually play. Then of course the standard shootout nonsense at the end. I was expecting witty banter, smokey rooms, tense battles, studying expressions, finding tells, nope. Can't last more than 90 seconds or the kids might tune out.

Edit: You are right, you do need the binoculars to get the quality info. You can only study unknown animals through a weapons scope. More hassle!

So, is it okay to say that Arthur is one of the best protagonists of this generation? Because honestly, he's one of the only ones I've gotten emotion from in a long time ... and I've played games like GOW



Also, this game ABSOLUTELY NEEDS a photo mode. I feel like every time I take a screenshot I'm just slightly out of frame. After playing Spider-Man, I almost consider it a necessary feature for graphically impressive games. This must be how VR users feel without VR ...

Yeah, for me he surpassed Joel and Ellie from Last of Us. And I haven't even finished it. Rockstar really improved their writing compared to GTAs and RDR1.

What chapter are you on? What happened in the last main mission you did? Because for me it just goes completely over the top in terms of greatness in the last chapter. The ending .... 



I changed my settings and things like the camera move a bit faster thanks to a YT vid.  

 

made a gif but it's kind of graphic 

 

 

Also the little details :O

Sorry for the late reply, haven't frequent the forums like this since BotW and TW3, just so you know, you can still study any animals with or without the binoculars or scope, you just have to get near enough to get a focus on your prey, and seems like you're having a hard time getting near one as well, when you're in eagle vision(L3+R3) an odor can be seen on your person, that way you can tell the direction of the wind and help you to keep your scent off the prey so they don't get spooked, now knowing this you can easily study a prey with or without the scope or binoculars and hunt accordingly once you studied the prey, it's really easy once you get used to it, be patient my man.

All the things you never notice in first person view! That all only translates into sickening camera movements :/ I love the extra immersion first person view gives yet the game really tries it hardest to bring up my dinner while hunting. Not cause of the act of skinning itself, the annoying pirouette the camera makes to get into position then lurching back and forth while skinning. He tends to stare at his feet a lot with many interactions, not helping.
