For this achievement you must fully harvest ten complete deer carcasses.

Hunting deer with a rifle is the easiest way to get this, as it is by far the easiest way to bring down a deer. You can hunt them with the bow as well, but I found that far more difficult with the arrow drop over distance, and the fact that (at least on lower skill levels) you must be standing upright to loose an arrow. This means you'll have to hunt them from farther away than with the rifle.

Deer carcasses can also be found in certain locations on most (all?) maps. Look and listen for crows, as they are a telltale sign of a carcass nearby. More often than not, the body is human, but occasionally you'll find a dead deer.

Frozen deer carcasses provide far less meat, and may not always tally as a deer carcass fully harvested. Your best bet is to hunt them and harvest the kill immediately.

Do this ten times, and it should pop.
