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

This challenge has us tracking down foxes. The foxes act in a very similar fashion to the deer in the game. They are too fast to chase down and stab and get spooked very quickly if you get too close to them. As such, I’d recommend hunting them using the same tactics that you use for deer in which we can us the same few options:

  • Air assassinate the animals from the tree branches above.
  • Use the stalking zones; wait for a fox to get close and then stealth assassinate it.
  • Shoot a fox 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 fox (right) down and skin them.

Whilst sleep darting foxes is a great method to get their skins quickly, it can be tricky to actually hit them due to their small stature and subsequently much smaller target size. Instead, I would recommend in this instance to use the ladders and tree stumps to reach the branches above the zone and perform air assassinations on them as they pass below you.

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