After scoring a kill and harvesting your trophy, you will be awarded with a score. The scoring thresholds are as such

0 - 399 - No Rank
400 - 599 - Bronze
600 - 799 - Silver
800 - 949 - Gold
949 - 1000 - Diamond

It should be noted that it is not possible to score a gold rating on females of the following species:

Roe Deer
Fallow Deer
Whitetail Deer
Blacktail Deer
Wild Boar
Red Deer
Roosevelt Elk

That is because, without a "Trophy Rating" the most any animal can score is 500 points, and since these animals do not possess the "trophy attribute" (antlers with the exception of boars (tusks)), they cannot score the required 800 points.

The following species it is theoretically possible to score gold on females, but less likely as they tend to be smaller, and hence the trophies are smaller (usually rather significantly)

Coyote (Weight)
Red Fox (Weight)
Black Bear (Skull)
European Bison (Tusks)

I am currently testing these species, and have (as yet) been unable to score gold on any of them, but still trying

Quick Kill
This has the most flexibility. You can afford this to be as low as around 90% if the trophy rating is high enough (lowest I've scored gold on personally was with quick kill at 88%). You earn 100% quick kill bonus by dropping the animal on the spot (easiest earnt with a Thoratic Spine shot on the bigger game (Moose / Bison) or a neck shot with the smaller deer species.

Integrity bonus is awarded at 100% by killing an animal with the "correct" caliber of weapon. The smaller the animal, the smaller the "permitted" caliber. For ease I have listed the maximum caliber allowance (for rifles only) below

Red Fox - .223 Docent

Coyote & Roe Deer - Ranger .243 (Starting Rifle)

Whitetail, Blacktail, Fallow Deer, Black Bear & Wild Boar - .270 Huntsman

Red Deer & Roosevelt Elk - 7mm Regent Magnum

Moose & European Bison - Rangemaster .338

If you want to use a weapon other than a rifle, some testing / research will be needed to ensure you don't use too high a caliber.

Consecutive Harvest
Each time you start a new hunt you will start with this at 0, and it raises by 20% for each kill you harvest, after the first kill, so you will need to kill 5 animals before hunting for "trophy" scores

1st Kill - 0%
2nd Kill - 20% (this is your first "consecutive harvest")
3rd Kill - 40%
4th Kill - 60%
5th Kill - 80%
6th Kill onwards - 100% bonus


With all of your bonuses at 100%, you now want to hunt (for ease sake) a male with a reasonable trophy rating
Without perks this can be difficult to establish, so as a rule of thumb you want to be trying to use the animals "difficulty" as a benchmark
A gold is possible in my experience once you hit the following difficulties (assuming 100% for all 3 bonuses)


Red Fox - 7 (Very Hard)
Roe Deer - 3 (Very Easy)
Fallow Deer - 4 (Easy) - See Screenshot
Wild Boar - 4 (Easy)
Red Deer - 7 (Very Hard)
European Bison - 4 (Easy)

As you can see from this shot, I had scored all 3 bonuses at 100%, and the animal was "Easy" difficulty. Comfortably within the Gold bracket of 800 - 949

Layton Lake

Coyote - 7 (Very Hard)
Whitetail - 3 (Very Easy)
Blacktail - 4 (Easy)
Black Bear - 7 (Very Hard)
Roosevelt Elk - 4 (Easy)
Moose - 4 (Easy)

It should be noted that it MAY BE POSSIBLE to score gold on a difficulty slightly under what I list IF the animal is at the top of that scale and you score a perfect 100% in all 3 areas. The list above merely shows the safest difficulty point to secure a gold medal

Good luck
