Once you have spoken with the hunter to begin the hunting challenge, your map will be updated with a large search area nearby. We need to head inside and track down the animals required for the objective.

We need to find and kill 5 deer. As we discovered during the first few deer related hunting challenges, deer are extremely fast and once they are aware of your presence, there is almost no way to kill them whist chasing them on foot. Additionally, this challenge is a little trickier than the previous two deer hunts as there is little to no stalking zone bushes available. This limits us to a couple of options:

  • Air assassinate the animals from the tree branches above.
  • Shoot the deer with a sleep dart and then skin it whilst it sleeps.

Approach the hunter to start the challenge (left). Use air assassinations or tranquilisers to take the deer (right) down and skin them.

Although both methods are effective, sleep darts are the easier of the two due to deer being large targets and much easier to hit than some animals. Additionally, once you skin the animal, you’ll have the pelt and a bone – the latter of which will allow you to instantly craft another sleep dart from the crafting menu.

Once you have the required pelts, the challenge will be complete.
