Obtaining a perfect pelt
A perfect cow pelt is extremely rare to obtain, but it can be obtained by making one of the most basic mistakes: overshooting your prey. Shooting prey more than once will destroy it and render it useless. Aim for the head of the animal and take one shot, then you should be able to get a perfect cow pelt. However, you must make sure that you kill the animal in a clean manner. This will guarantee that you preserve the quality of your pelt.
Hunting for a perfect pelt
To get the perfect pelt, you must first kill a three-star pristine target. You cannot kill a perfect pelt with more than one shot. When you do, you will only get a one-star pelt, not a three-star one. This is because the merchants do not want to buy pelts with bullet holes. To get the perfect pelt, you must kill the cow without any bullet marks or wounds.
Aim for a critical hit when hunting and killing your prey. This will cause the animal to bleed and collapse, making it easy to cleanly kill the animal with a knife. The last thing you want is to end up with a poor carcass, which will ruin the quality of your pelt. If you’re on PS4, you can use Arthur’s lasso to cleanly kill a rabbit or a deer. It is possible to shoot with R2/RT while holding the lasso, so aim for it carefully.
Crafting with a perfect pelt
A perfect cow pelt is a very rare material in Red Dead Redemption 2. Luckily, the game allows players to craft them as a variety of different items. You can use it to make things like Workman’s Pride Boots for the Beast of Prey Garment or a Principal Vest for the Marauder. Here are a few tips for crafting a perfect cow pelt.
Getting a perfect pelt from a cow
Getting a perfect pelt from cows is quite difficult, but it is possible! Usually, cows are penned up at farms, and you can hunt them using a sniper rifle or a bow with improved arrows. You can also use a hunting guide if you want to make the entire process easier. If you are new to hunting, a video by KhrazeGaming is a great resource.
