I got a rank 20 Gypsy Cob. It seems fine around predators, didn't throw me off while I was hunting Wolves and Grizzly Bears.

 

I'll probably go back to my Norfolk Roadster, but the Cob is a solid enough horse.

Cheers. Yeah I’m currently riding a Norfolk Roadster. The only thing that might make me switch is a horse that’s braver around predators.

Had a legendary Elk mission that way too, so it did not get away like when I had to chase it down. It was still way up north, but it was in the locked

poacher box and I had to kill poachers. So shot lock with varmint/sedate, then shot it up as it ran out. I hate how the mission ends when you sample it, though,

so I can't revive it and then take a photograph (which is about the easiest time to do that.)

You can definitely revive them and then take a photo.  I freed a grey wolf, sedated it, sampled it, revived it and photographed it.

"Legendary" Elk ;)

 

You can't with the Legendary, since the mission ends as soon as you sample it (when the criteria is to get a sample.) So you "sample" "MISSION SUCCESS: SAMPLE LEGENDARY ELK. MISSION OVER" (whatever it says.)

Then it reload you not in the same exact place, without that Legendary animal to take a picture of.

 

Yeah, you can with regular animals in the "poacher" missions, since they don't end and reload you after you free the animal.

 

The third Legendary Elk one, I was therefore ready to take the photo FIRST:

 

Instead, in that one it was "Angry" and kept charging me (Killing me once, making me respawn, while trying to take  a picture (glad that did not end the mission ;) ) )

So I still could not take the dang photo. The stupid horse bucked me and did a flee right away too, worse than when wolves/whatever are on its booty and I'm mashing

the "pat" button.

 

So I'm 0 for 3, to take a photo of the Legendary Elk. Got away the first time, did not know the mission ends right away when sample the second time (did not want it to get away, like before), then was out to gore me the third time

so tranqued it again instead.

Is that with full bonding? Got it as well but think it's quite skittish (at bonding level 1 and 2).

Yeah, he's at level 4. I've only been bucked once and that was my own fault, I let a cougar get behind me.

I found a few of them north of Brandywine Drop. Riding around between Charlotte's home and Dragic's lab. They were closer to the river for sure, but you can find them a little bit deeper into the wooded areas too.

 

If that doesn't work I also sighted one or two at Aurora Basin and very rarely near Owanjila and Hanging Dog Ranch.

The luckiest I get with moose are usually on the shores of Owanjila Lake, to the right opposite of where the beaver spawns are.

 

I've also spotted a few east of Beecher's Hope, but less frequently than Owanjila.

For Moose I've been going to Tall Trees or Brandywine drop. They can be found next to water taking a drink but you can find them in the trees too, at Tall Trees they can spawn in the forest part, in particular the parts where "Tall Trees" is written vertically on the map, anywhere those letters touch is a region where they can spawn. Remember that you need two, the one with antlers (male?) and the one without (female?) for the set.

So apparently the naturalist perk that you unlock at level 15 which is supposed to make spotting legendary animals easier is doing the exact opposite.

 

This makes sense as I haven't spotted a legendary in FR since hitting level 15 and unlocking that perk.

I played 14 hours with this lvl 15 perk and nothing, visiting every place on the legendary animals map.

Speaking about mooses, it's funny how now you can find more of them in Online than in Story Mode because of the new spawning system. In Story Mode, you would just keep saving/relaoding and praying until a moose finally spawns, but now in Online, you just go to Brandywine Drop and you can be sure that there will be at least one there every time.

Yup, I think that there's clearly a problem with the FR legendary animals, guess we gonna have to wait another 7 months for Rockstar to do something about it lel.

We won't have to wait that long.

 

There is an update coming for Halloween and then a bigger one in December.

So I guess the general consensus is that we're not even sure if the legendary animals are broken.

We are definitely sure legendary animals are broken and not spawning as intended.

 

Only way to currently get legendary animals to spawn in FR is you need to be in a low player count lobby and below lvl 15 Naturalist.

Thanks for the tips guys, roamed around the upper part of Brandywine Drop for a while and got 3 samples each of ladymoose and manmoose.

The Halloween "update" is part of this title update as it's files are already in the game. So we'll still most likely have to wait till December to see anything done unless they surprise us with a patch

I am pretty sure I found the southern copperhead in the south. Lemoyne not  Texas. Try the island (s) south of Shady Belle.  I got a photo of one swimming west of the bridge that is south of the manor there.

I've learned that the best time to photograph the legendary animals is during the protect LA freeroam event. There's a long period of time where they're standing still and you can get the shot easily
