How To Get Perfect Pelt In Red Dead Redemption 2
There’s a 3-star rating assigned to each animal which tells you the quality. To get a Perfect pelt, you want to be hunting down those with three stars only. Note: you’ll still get a good quality pelt from a 2-star animal and a bad one from a 1-star creature.
Once you’ve got your Perfect Pelt, you can then sell them for cash to the Trapper or use them to upgrade stuff. You can, of course, also donate them to Pearson at the Van Der Linde camp.
The first trapper can be found once you’ve reached Chapter 4. You’ll see his shop spring up in Saint Denis. Once you’ve unlocked the Legendary Animal map, keep an eye out for these locations and bag yourself a high-quality pelt from the rarest animals!
