The Legendary Tatanka Bison is a species of animal found in Red Dead Redemption 2.


The Legendary Tatanka Bison is native to Hennigan's Stead in New Austin. This bison can be recognized by its short black hair and thick light gray hair around its hump and head. As a herbivore, it grazes on grains, hay, and corn. Long range weapons like a long scope rifle or a Bow with Improved Arrows will give you the advantage when hunting this animal.[1]

Killing the bison gives the player the opportunity to craft the rare Tatanka Bison Horn Trinket, the Legendary Boar & Bison Fowlers, the Legendary Bison Batwing Chaps, the Legendary Bison Vest and together finishes The Dreamcatcher outfit.


The Legendary Tatanka Bison can be found in Hennigan's Stead, southeast of MacFarlane's Ranch.


Legendary animals always give a clean pelt or skin, therefore any weapon can be used.

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

Due to its size the Tatanka Bison will take more shots than other animals to kill. This means it has a higher chance of running once the player locates it even after shooting it a number of times.
