Red Dead Wiki

The Legendary Elk is a rare species of animal found in Red Dead Redemption 2.


The distinguishable white hair and shaggy mane make this elk different to other elks in the region. Its herbivore diet includes grasses, leaves, bark and plants. Elk are easily startled so it is advised to keep as much distance as possible whilst hunting. Long range weapons like a Bow with Improved Arrows, or a long scope rifle, are considered to be the best for hunting.[1]

Killing this animal will give the player the opportunity to craft the rare Elk Antler Trinket, Legendary Elk Moccasins, Legendary Elk Half Chaps, the Legendary Elk Range Gloves and to finish The Ghost Bison outfit.


The legendary elk can be found in Cumberland Forest, east of Bacchus Station.


Legendary animals always give a clean pelt or skin, so the player can use any weapon.

Compendium: Use a long scope rifle for a clean kill.
