What to Know About the Buck in RDR 2

The Red Dead Redemption 2 buck is a large wild animal located throughout the map. Just like the elk, it is a herbivore, but that does not mean they are not dangerous to the player. The buck’s meat, pelt, and antlers are all useful in crafting recipes. There is also a legendary version of the buck.

Best Weapons to Kill the Buck With

Using the right weapons when hunting the buck is important to getting a good kill. Since the buck is a large animal, you need to use a powerful weapon. Additionally, it should be able to be used at range, since deer can be frightened away if spooked. We recommend using either the sniper rifle or the bow. For the rifle, make sure you do not use explosive ammo, as it can ruin the kill quality. For the bow, poison arrows work best. Since bucks are herbivores, it may be a good idea to use herbivore bait as well.

Buck Locations

Buck are most commonly found in the wooded areas of the map. They spawn with groups of doe, with there typically being more does than there are bucks. The best place overall to find them is in Scarlett Meadows.
