I thought i'd go ahead and search for some of the best hotspots for certain animals as there are specific places I've found which do spawn more regularly than normal. I've only made a start, but i was hoping everyone would chip in and help out with it when they get some time.

Here's the Hunting Hotspot map.


Cougars:
On the imap is the location i found to spawn cougars pretty regularly. They seem to spawn best in the early mornings and during the day. I haven't seen any at night anyway. Best thing to do is walk up and down the cliff until they appear, but they do appear specifically in the area i spotted on the map.

Beavers:
After a long search along the river banks, i found a really good spot which spawned me beaver after beaver by leaving the area slightly and returning almost straight away to find a new one replaced the one before. on the hilly part between the few trees is where they spawn.

Boars:
I found these pretty annoying to find, i looked in Still Water Creek, no luck. So i moved around towards Tanners Span where the river can be crossed on a horse from Hennigan's stead. I found three in the same place on a few occasions. Also there is a guy there with a skinning challenge which requires you to lay bait and skin 2 boar for him.

Anyway, i've made a start, if anyone would like to suggest any other decent places and put the on the imap, it would be appreciated.

I noticed Cougars are found northwest of the MacFarlene's Ranch.......as well as Boars on occasion..........though the thing is, once you hear the Cougar, its found you before you found it =/

EDIT

Northeast, my bad

Yes, just in the hills to the east of the train tracks boars and cougars spawn.

Cougars: Beecher's Hope (after game completion I found dozens only metres from the ranch, although they didn't seem too agressive until I started shooting them.) Southern Great Plains, near the Serendipity. Stillwater creek, Repentance rock.

Boars: Stillwater creek, Great Plains, Tall Trees near Bearclaw Camp.

Added Armadillo's which seem to spawn a lot towards Nosalida. Skunks seem to be there as well.

I added a location for raccoons. They spawn best late night/early morning.

I also added a location for Skunks. I found they best spawn late at night in the far east of Mexico.

You can add skunks next to my armadillo's, but they only seem to spawn during the day

Okay i added that.

I also added fox's. I found that they spawn a lot around tall tree's after midnight if you kill other animals and leave them as bait.

Bighorns always spawn in south west Tall Trees near to Tanner's Reach.

Added Elk, which can always be found in the middle/north region of Tall Trees.

Added grizzly bear hotspot at Tanner's Reach cabin. Thought it was an obvious one, but i added it anyway.

Added some more locations.

foxes spawn regularly in the southern part of the great plains, just north of thieves' landing....

Coyotes spawn like fuckin mad in Hennegans Stead just across from that house on the way from Armadillo to MacFarlene's Ranch. So do Rattlesnakes, Bucks/Deer, and Rabbits........its basically a hunting goldmine.......wound up killing 26 Coyotes in one hunting session there, if that helps.

I added those above, and a few more i found over the last couple of days.

Happy hunting!

i linked to this thread in my ambient challenge guide the other day biggrin.gif... i thought i'd give everyone a place for more hotspots in case they have no luck in finding the animals where i indicated in the guide... if you want, you should update the first post in this thread with the updated map link...

EDIT: lol, i guess you're already ahead of me, dup biggrin.gif...

I can't really load up the map due to connection fuckery, but is there a hotspot for raccoons? I just got back into the challenges today and I can't find any of the bastards.

North East of Tall Trees, where the path snakes.
