The Legendary Animals challenge tasks you with hunting five legendary animals, but there are a lot more. Almost every type of animal has a legendary version.
All except for the cows. We guess that would be too legen – wait for it – dairy.
The good news is these are actually easier to hunt, in terms of pelt quality. It doesn’t matter what you do, that pelt will always be a legendary pelt. Incendiary/explosive shotgun shells? Go for it. Dynamite arrows? Sure.
Legendary animals can be encountered in some missions, but will more frequently be located in the wild. Once players enter an area that contains a legendary animal, they will begin receiving a series of clues when using Eagle Eye. The third clue will lead directly to the animal. Below is a listing of the animals and their approximate locations.
