The goat in Red Dead Redemption 2 is a large farm animal that has some very useful drops and recipes. Since they are herbivores, they can be found mostly on farms hanging around eating grass, so they are not too difficult to hunt. Currently, there is not a legendary version of the goat, but their drops can be used along with other legendary pelts for some recipes.
Best Weapon to Kill the Goat With
The right weapon must be used to kill the goat in order to get a perfect pelt. Just like cows, goats are a large mammal, meaning that it is best to use either a rifle or a bow. In terms of ammunition, any rifle ammo can be used as long as it is not explosive, and poison or improved arrows work best when using a bow. Since goats are herbivores, you can use herbivore bait if you want to, but it is not necessary since goats are mainly located in large numbers on farms.
Goats are located on farms and ranches all across the map. It is best to hunt them at night to avoid detection and potential conflict.
