    Here's a list of all the animals you need. Some of these have challenges associated with it, but not all of them. Note that a bit later in the game you can purchase maps to find the location of all the animals 01 - 20 on the list below in Hope County. The animals in the expeditions are hard to miss.

    For the monstrous animals, I recommend relogging if you can't find them. I had problems to find the monstrous Cougar. After looking for him for 5 minutes I relogged. One minute after I looked around I was hearing a fight with a cougar - went to it and sure enough there he was.

    In general, the monstrous animals get into fights a lot so if you are near his spawn zone and you hear fighting nearby then you got a pretty good chance that you will find highwaymen fighting your prize already.

    Also: Monstrous animals are epic enemies so don't take them on until you have a few epic weapons otherwise it will take a while to take them down.

    Animals in Hope County:
    Animal 01: Deer
    Animal 02: Pronghorn
    Animal 03: Rattlesnake (Hope County - usually near Treasure Hunt locations)
    Animal 04: Wild Dog

    Monstrous Animals
    Animal 17: Monstrous Bison
    Animal 18: Monstrous Boar
    Animal 19: Monstrous Bear

    Animals in Expeditions:
    Animal 21: Skunk (Expedition: Alcatraz - in one of the orange cells, have to shoot/punch the lock)
    Animal 22: Hare (Expedition: I. S. S. Crash Site - somewhere in the woods)

    Tommy Ferrari I noticed that bringing Timber along helps a lot with hunting as he automatically marks all nearby animals and he's quite at good at chasing and killing them too, I used him to kill a hare.

    paramoreRyan In case anyone was wondering - you can leave an expedition after getting a skin only if it is your last one(s). They won't count if you leave and have to get any more but if it's the last one you'll still get the achievement and can leave.
