Feral Man Encounter

So, I ran into the Feral Man but wasn't able to catch him as he disappeared with a brief screen moving away from him. Once he shows up, will he appear again? I went to the cave but the journal wasn't there. Will that encounter only happen once or do you have multiple chances to catch him?

Additional info, I tried to use a small to large buggy or whatever you call it since the horses on those do not get scared from the wolves, and I ended up chasing the Feral Man all over the map like he bugged out. I have a save directly before seeing him, and every time I try to do it normally by running towards him a wolf drags my arm and faces me in the other direction so that when I look back he's gone. It really is quite frustrating, I am sort of a completionist and I feel stagnated and trying to avoid that part of Roanoke because I would hate to lose out on that encounter with the cave and the journal. Just don't know if the encounter has to happen a certain amount of times before you are able to enter the cave?

I've tried to research this, but all I've seen is that people have just caught him easily.

The first time around, i ran after him on foot and two wolves grabbed me and he escaped.

 

I seen him a second time and shot both wolves as soon as i seen them and ran after him on foot. I lassoed him when he was next to the cave.

 

I think the encounter can happen multiple times, at least twice minimum.

I tracked him to his cave with his two wolves.  He shouted “Leave!” Several times and then his wolves eventually attacked me.  They weren’t that vicious though and I killed them both with a bow even though they knocked me over twice.

As soon as they died the feral man started wailing in grief and I left.

It made me feel really sh*tty.

So, without spoiling anything, I saw the encounter again during the epilogue after I saw the encounter earlier in previous chapters. But, I ran into the same issue where I kept getting pulled by the wolves during the chase. 

When I saw videos of people going after the Feral Man, they show him as a dot on their map, and were able to chase him to the cave with a dot showing where he was on the minimap. Every time I have done it either pre or post epilogue he shows up like this:

1. white dot that fades with a howl.

2. getting closer, one more white dot that fades and a howl.

3. no more white dot, but he starts running and growling while wolves chase me from his origin

4. wolves pull me away or I lose los (line of sight) and then he disappears. 

 

All the other videos I see show a consistent white dot and allows them to chase him to the cave, but it's like the game hates me or something. I even tried to see if I can show up during a full moon after the first sighting and can't get him to spawn afterwards. I don't know if there is some conditions that I'm simply not meeting, but so many people just state they stumble upon him. It's sort of like this guy is my white whale or something, I just don't get it.

You know where the cave is, right?   Okay, as soon as Feral Man shows up in the woods, just run to the cave.  The encounter will play out.  

You don't have to wait for a full moon or try to track the white dot.   I got the encounter on first try, purely by accident, in the middle of the day.  Just followed him to the cave by the river.  Wolves attacked, I shot them.  Feral Man started crying, and I *was* going to leave him alone, but he stabbed me, so I returned the favor.  The journal is in the back of the cave.

@Ebocharanga

 

I may be mistaken but I think if you kill him before the final encounter it doesn't spawn but I may be wrong about that.

 

You have to run across him several times before you get the one where he is without his wolves.

 

You'll know it's the final time because it takes place in a specific area.

 

Putting this next part in spoiler tags because this directly address that encounter...

 

 

If you like there is also a way to do his final encounter without killing him or his wolves but it's not necessary to get his journal 

The choice is yours...

 

Edit...

Another user here just replied today on the topic under the main RDR2 thread.

He said at the end rather then punch him out you can just hogtie him and not loose any honer.

So there is even that...

 

Here is the link to that post...

Yeah, ditto here. I was trying to bag a cougar on the other side of the river there and had a white dot. The feral man unfolded. To be honest though, I couldn't handle his moaning and god-awful wailing

Spoiler

after I shot his wolves

, so I killed him. C'est la guerre.

Did this a little differently.

 

I killed him and read his diary to get an understanding of him. Then I reloaded and got the encounter again, although not straight away. I knew he had raised his wolves since puppies, so I ran from them when they tried to attack me. When I cleared them and the red dots disappeared, the game auto-saved. I went back and he was alone. He tried to attack me with a knife, so I hogtied him, grabbed his diary, and cut him loose. He didn’t try to attack me again. He just ran away, his little wiggler just flopping along...
 

Looking back, I wondered if I had appeared in one of the trapper’s tacky wolf outfits, if feral man would have befriended me and sat me down for some lovely fontina cheese, fresh crackers, and a vintage syrah..
 

...Yeah....Probably not....

 

...But if I had to do it over again.....
