Hunting is a very important part of Red Dead Redemption 2. Whether you're a completionist who wants to 100 percent the game, an achievement hunter who wants to get as many trophies as possible, or even if you just want the best equipment in the game or to feed yourself, you're going to have to hunt in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Arthur can skin a beaver carcass to get several items such as its pelt, fat, scent glands, and stringy meat. There are quite a few crafting recipes that require beaver pelt and there is also a side mission that requires a perfect beaver pelt. One of the best saddles in the game is actually made of beaver pelt in perfect condition as well. So, all in all, hunting down a few beaver will come in quite handy. Here's where you'll find them.

All Beaver Locations In RDR2

There are only four locations in the game where you'll find beavers to hunt. We'll go over them in this guide so you plan your next hunting trip accordingly.

Big Valley Region

Beavers can be found in the Big Valley Region, not too far away west of Strawberry.

There is a lake in the region, it's called Owanjila and that is where you'll have to go if you want to try and hunt down some beavers.

Grizzlies West Region

There are also beavers in the coldest region of the game, the Grizzlies West Region. You can find beavers on the northern end of Lake Isabella.

It is here that you'll also find the Legendary White Bison, the Legendary Sockeye Salmon, and the white Arabian horse so if you're in the mood to get more than beavers out of this trip, there's plenty of entertainment in this particular area.


Bayou Nwa Region

Head down to the Lemoyne territory, to the Bayou Nwa Region. A bit further down south from the Shady Belle, is where you'll find more beavers, south of the shore.

Roanoke Ridge Region

This last location is perhaps the most important one because it's actually in the same area where you'll find the Legendary Beaver.

You'll find beavers and the Legendary Beaver, southwest of Annesburg. South of Elysian Pool and west of the Van Horn trading post, very close to Huron Glen, along the Kamassa River.

Tips On Beaver Hunting In RDR2

If you've never hunted beavers in the game before, there is some important information you should know about these creatures.

To get perfect pelts, the best weapon to hunt beavers with is the Varmint Rifle. It is made for smaller animals and it works better than the bow in this particular case.

Consider adding a scope to your Varmint Rifle because if a beaver hears you coming it will instantly retreat back to water and then you won't be able to skin it. A headshot from a distance is what guarantees the most success when it comes to beaver hunting in Red Dead Redemption 2.
