Rank 1

Skin 3 Deer.

Reward: Master Hunter Off-Hand Holster

Deer can be found anywhere around the map, and are most common around Van Horn, Annesburg, and directly north of San Denis.

Rank 2

Collect 3 perfect quality rabbit pelts.

Reward: 25 Health XP and $5

Use small game arrows or a Varmint Hunting Rifle to increase the chances of a perfect quality pelt.

Rank 3

Track 10 different animal species using your binoculars.

Reward: Master Hunter Bandolier

Pull out your binoculars, study the animal and then hold the track button while looking at them with your binoculars. The only things you can’t track are birds that fly.

Rank 4

Call an animal and get a clean kill 5 times.

Reward: 50 Health XP and $10

A scoped bolt action rifle is recommended, but you can pull it off with a bow if you are close enough. When you are aimed at the animal you want to kill, press the call button and it will pop its head up. At this point either take the headshot or use Dead eye to make sure you don’t miss. If it takes more than one shot, it isn’t a clean kill.

Rank 5

Skin 3 black or grizzly bears.

Reward: 50 Health XP and $10

Use Dead Eye and a powerful Repeater, Rifle or Sniper Rifle to gain head shots and kill the animal easily. Black bears are found north of Strawberry, and Grizzly bears can be found can only be found in some places west of Valentine.

Rank 6

Kill 5 cougars with your bow, then skin them.

Reward: 100 Health XP and $15

Cougars are found near Tumbleweed, both directly north and south of the town. They can also be encountered south west of Blackwater near the water. Track the animal and use Dead Eye for a clean head shot with the bow.

Rank 7

Use bait to lure and kill both a herbivore and predator.

Reward: Master Hunter Gun Belt

Bait can be bought at General Stores all across the map. Make sure you hide after you place down the bait, and use Dead Eye for a clean kill if you want, or use a powerful gun and Dead Eye to kill it if you are not concerned about the kill quality.

Rank 8

Catch 3 fish without using a fishing rod.

Reward: 100 Health XP and $15

Use a bow or a thrown weapon near the water's edge. When aiming, wait for the spot to turn red, then use Dead Eye to increase the chances of hitting the fish.

Rank 9

Catch an opossum playing possum.

Reward: 150 Health XP and $20

Rank 10

Find and kill the legendary panther "Giaguaro".

Reward: Master Hunter Holster

The Legendary Panther can only be found upon reaching Master Hunter Rank 10. It is directly east of Braithwaite Manor, down by the water. Inspect the 3 clues and use a powerful weapon and head shots to kill it, as kill quality is not applicable when hunting Legendary Animals.
