Red Dead Wiki

The Fox is an animal found in Red Dead Redemption.


They can be found in various locations:

  • northwest of the Wreck of the Serendipity (particularly the area with a group of trees directly north of the "Wreck of the Serendipity" map name)
  • between the Two Crows (head north from Riley's Charge) and the road to the west, and abundantly high in Rio Del Lobo.
  • They can also be found south of Beecher's Hope in West Elizabeth, where the fox image is on the map
  • "Baiting" in the Rio del Lobo canyon or near Venter's Place frequently attracts foxes, although it isn't strictly necessary. It should be noted that baiting in this area may attract cougars frequently too (when more up-hill in Rio del Lobo).
  • Also, in Rio del Lobo and just south of Armadillo, one can often see a skulk of foxes chasing a herd of deer at night.
  • There is a hunting/skinning challenge that occurs randomly east of Warthington Ranch at night, where a Hunter will ask Marston to hunt and skin foxes for him. He will give some bait, and after using it, three to five foxes appear.
  • Baiting around the Hanging Rock should bring out several, as well as some coyotes, raccoons, skunks and rabbits.
  • These can also be spotted directly north-northwest of MacFarlane's Ranch, using bait will bring them out, along with wolves, boars, and the occasional cougar.
  • Occasionally found at "Odd Fellow's Rest", in large quantities.


Rank 6 of the Master Hunter Challenges requires that Marston kill and skin 5 foxes (in addition to 5 Raccoons and 5 Skunks). The aforementioned technique of baiting around The Hanging Rock is an easy way to complete this rank of the challenge.


  • Foxes will rarely attack the player; only when no horse is in sight, and the player is standing still. This trait is also shared with coyotes.
  • Foxes also share the same audio files with coyotes.
  • Foxes will commonly attack and swiftly kill raccoons, despite being nearly the same size.
