Hello all, I come seeking advice and help.

 

I have nearly completed GTA V (I am currenyl at 99.8%) and am being continually knackered by the same challenge.  Basically, I have completed 41 out of the 42 Hobbies and Pastimes missions so I thought I'd do a spot of hunting and make it to 100% completion.

 

I have completed the Master Hunter and the Weapon Master challenges but am unable to pass the Nature Photographer challenge.  I am stuck on rank 4 (despite already being awarded rank 5), which is to take a photo of an elk corpse and a charging cougar.  So far I've sent 3 such photos to Cletus.  On the first photo he replied asking why they were still standing so I thought I'd try and be clever and kill the mountain lion as soon as I had sent the photo.  Cletus replied complaining about my use of a machine gun to kill the cougar, even thought it was alive in the photo.  The third photo went the same as the second one only he complained about the use of a sub-machine gun.

 

So now I'm shooting elk left right and centre and standing on the back of Trevors pick-up (for safety reasons) waiting for a cat to turn up, which invariably comes from the opposite direction fromthe one I need.  It's so tedious and not a good way to end what has been a pretty epic game.  I'm wanting to get on with crackiong the Mount Chilliad mystery and do some UFO spotting!

 

Has anyone else experienced this problem and managed to get around it?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

To get basic comlpetion just hunt from dawn to dusk bagging as many beasties as u can.

 

I only did two 'special' photos and have the task completed on the checklist.

Thanks HVS5b.

 

I'll give that a go tomorrow night and try and rack up as many dead elk as I can.  Hopefully that does the trick.

I have completed all of those Hobbies and Pastimes which is why this is so annoying.  I'll have to have a blast through them all again to make sure.

 

According to Rockstar, Hunting is one of the 59 activities - I only have limited access to Social Club but can see enough to know what missions I should go for - though going by that list I should have the required 42, but my stats are showing 41.  A couple of guides I've been using have also listed hunting as a requirement.  If it isn't hunting, what else can it be?

See my post here on how to see what you have left on social club.... (there is a thin line to the left of each of the icons for things required for 100% other then Random events which are simply any 14).... I posted a screen shot so you can see-- I never noticed the lines until they were pointed out to me-- I'm at 98.5% done now with only Triathalon and Knife flights left to do.

It is worth it to note that when I was doing my last street race that when I did it and did not win-- it gives you the option to "retry" (push x to retry)-- I did this and won but it would not register as complete--- I had to reload or do a fresh start and win in order for it to register-- my point is it could be this or maybe one of the other ones not showing up because you "retried" it after not winning.

 

I am absolutely positive that hunting is NOT required.

The street and sea races are an easy one to try.  I've won them all, but not always at the first attempt.  Some I went for the retry option.  I'll give that a go.  Thanks for your help.

Well I finally got it.  100% completion!  It was a game of tennis that was holding me back.

 

Thanks to HVS5b and Spuds725 for their help and advice.
