Red Dead Redemption 2 has a deep and challenging system when it comes to hunting and crafting. There’s more to it than just pointing and shooting, often finding the animal can be a major challenge, especially if it doesn’t appear in many locations, like the Beaver. Beavers, as one might expect, are often found near water, especially where rivers and lakes connect. This guide will show you all the locations to hunt them in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Where to find Beavers in Red Dead Redemption 2
While there aren’t a lot of locations to find Beavers, there are usually lots of them on site. It also helps that there tends to be more than one reason to be at each location, so it’s not a trip across the map just to get a single perfect Beaver hide.
This is a fantastic lake to spend some time at. Not only can plenty of Beavers be found here, there is also a Legendary Smallmouth Bass to be caught.
Upper Montana River
Follow the river south of Owanjila Dam to the Upper Montana River and there is a location for plenty of Beavers. There’s other small game to hunt, so bring a Varmint Rifle.
North of Lake Isabella
Pack some warm clothes, because there is a Beaver location at the north end of Lake Isabella where the river connects. The Legendary White Bison can be found here, as can another Legendary Fish.
Southwest of Saint Denis
Probably the worst location for hunting Beavers is southwest of Saint Denis. Snakes and Alligators all over the place make this a dangerous place to ride a horse or walk around.
West of Van Horn Trading Post
West of the Van Horn Trading post, or south of the Elysian Pool where the Poisonous Trail Treasure Hunt quest concludes, is the location of both regular Beavers, and the Legendary Beaver.
No matter what animal is being hunted, understanding the basics is paramount. Consider brushing up on those skills with our complete hunting guide and stop ruining hides. If there are other tasks at hand, however, visit the Red Dead Redemption 2 walkthrough and guide.
