I'm telling you mate, that guide is how I farmed up all the perfect pelts I needed

And just FYI you can pass unlimited days by: camping near town, sleep till "night," go into town and "wait till morning," then repeat indefinitely

Just saw this...sorry man, I’m not really sure how I would go about that and I don’t really have the time.

 

The problem is is that you are likely not waiting. Need 3-4 days in-game to go by before the moose respawns. And it is not a 100% thing. That is why you camp nearby, save, and if the moose isn’t there reload until the moose does show up.

 

That being said, Drake’s method works great as well. I bagged a couple moose that way myself.

Just found the first one nearby beaver’s hollow by the stream margin. It was male 3* and spotted it from very far with binoculars, I was hunting bears for the 5th master hunter challenge. Killed it with one shot of the rolling block rifle.

 

Now I’m screwed to find more two of those to sell to the trapper. The bait on the frozen lake never worked for me, it only attracted horses.

Actually I just thought of something. Do you ever turn the game off? Like close the application? Do you ever restart your console itself?

 

Try restarting the console. Just a thought anyway.

Could be some process is stuck in active memory. I always exit the game completely when I’m done, and I try and restart my PS4 once a week at least.

Edit: Also camping nearby is good because sleeping seems to reset spawns and encounters and stuff as well. They reload. I also always sleep until morning and hunt moose in the morning. Not sure what time you are hunting.

Use "potent herbivore bait" instead of the normal "herbivore bait".

I never knew they were so hard to find, I’m on chapter 2, just robbed the bank coach with Micah and have found a few up in Roanoke Ridge without trying no problem 🤷🏻‍♂️

Never saw one yet...finished the epilogue.

 

I crafted the legend of the east satchel and have almost all legendary animals too...never saw a moose...this can’t be right.

 

ive even used cover scent and bait and crept around and it did nothing.

join the friendly player revolution and head over to WWW.FPGL-CREW.COM to experience the wonder of lobby cooperation:)

Consider the moose the unicorn of this game.

Don't give up. You'll eventually find one.

Best success I have getting them to spawn is in Roanoke Ridge, near the rivers and waterfalls up in the northwest.

Yup--that's where I've found mine....even after the Legendary Moose, I've had a few respawn up that way, far north, on the west side of the lake and falls. Lot of 3 star elk that way too. And the fishing is awesome.

I had one on my first try. Don't remember where but there is a location they always spawn near a waterfall. I think it was near Annesburg. This was a couple days ago too.... so maybe you are in the wrong spot. I was above it when I shot it.

It was easy to spawn mooses with herbivore bait in early patches. But its impossible anymore. Because everytime when i use herbivore bait, just horse spawning in snowy area. (Im playing on 1.15 btw)

Do you guys know new methot for new patches?

Snow area is not working anymore. I found new method for newest patches

 

Spawning Moose with herbivore bait in Snowy area trick is not working anymore. But i found another one. Thanks to Fyou STUDIOS channel to showing us this new location. I made his method more simple. Just turn off auto save and save your game in the area that i showed you on the video. Then load game and hunt it. Note; You have to wait 3 in game day for another moose spawn. Just do something else. Sleeping wont work for another moose spawn.

I'm on the most current patch and they spawn at all the normal locations, both with and without the use of herbivore or potent herbivore bait.

 

I believe the problem is the approach that people are using.

 

Go on foot and only use the bow.  if you're worried about being ambushed by wolves and such, you can bring a gun but don't use it and only shoot the bow when you see the moose.

Don't kill anything else because although the bow is quiet it still scares animal.

This is right. You have to walk at a normal pace to their spawn locations. If you run or trot up with your horse, they won’t spawn. Take it slow and you’ll knock it out in no time.

Never seen a single moose on 1.00 in one and a half playthroughs on that version until last night by Cattail Pond, was only 2 stars though. At least I got it into the compendium.

 

I was fishing and walking around so I will try more of the on foot method mentioned above.

My first method didnt work for third moose pelt. I wasted my 30 minutes on that. 

So i tried another method. Just go to cattail pond, make sure your horse is not around there and walk around the water just like i did in the video

 

Now one more moose pelt left for the trapper :)

As said by you and Deadman2112 walking is the way to go. I have now seen a 2 star moose at Cattail Pond 4 times by walking to it. Finally found a 3 star moose swimming in Owanjila, again I was walking around. And then found a 3 star drinking from Dakota River (near the bridge with the wagon beneath it) again I was walking. Walking seems to be the secret ingredient.

this is a 100% fix bull moose spawns. He spawns 6 in the morning. Make sure the area is untouched. If not, go to another place, sleep, save, reload, sleep to reset the area and go to the area of the top of the waterfall. There is always a two or three star bull moose. If you see a 2 Star moose, reload the file and try again. Don't go away and come back... didn't work.. is he gone, he needs like 3 days to spawn again. Thats why reload is the best thing.

same with small animals.  There are three possible opossums spawns points near Riggs station. They spawn only one time in one circle. If they ran away.. that's it.. dont waste time for lookin new opossums.. they spawn only one time in the night. 1. Reload ! Just reload.. or sleep to the next night. Small animals spawns again if they run away in a day. Big animals like 3 days.

 

Dont waste time and use reload.

i have the feeling one patch in 2019 f*cked up the bull moose spawns points. i remember my playthrough i never found a bull moose at known locations. Now, i started a new game with the hated 1.19 versions and still play with the newest patch. Bull moose spawn points work fantastic for me
