    There's some luck involved here. Generally speaking you'll find deer roaming the forests of Chernarus. They make a loud mating call-type noise which is very distinct. You have to follow the sound and eventually you'll find a group of them (usually) dont get too close and shoot one to kill it from range. Use a knife or blade weapon of choice on the body and you will have gutted the deer. Simple.

    NOTE:
    This should be paired with the achievement for cooking a steak on a stick. Since after you gut the deer, you'll have a lot of raw steaks.

    o F R 3 5 H oSame here. Geared up and my sole intention was to locate a deer. Three hours went by and not one sighting. This achievement is by luck and luck alone.

    HuNTeRSPAFound my first female deer today (the one without horns) , just by pure luck after waiting for sunrise and suffering two storms on a military tend. Killed it with one shot with the rifle Blaze.

    Used a knife on it to get the meat but the achievement didn't pop at all. Anybody else on this situation? 😞

    Edit: Just got it today. After a long way searching everywhere just came back to the same zone of the first one and instantly hear the noise of the deer. It was a group of three. Just focus on the male deer with horns. Ignore the females. Be careful about the recommended spots to bring it down fast. Had to shoot twice with the Mosin. 😥

    If you don't find a knife, you can craft one with two small stones, usually found on those typical mountain paths along the forest, with colored symbols.

    TuKraZeJust to add to this: You can also find plenty of Roebuck/Doe (deer without large antlers) around the map and they make a sort of bark noise (almost like a small dog). These are more common and are usually in small groups. The large Stag has huge antlers and has a much more distinctive call (almost like a large zombie) but is less common. These will all net you the achievement if you manage to take one down. It is recommended that you aim your shot behind the shoulders. If you get the shot right, you should take one down in a single shot with most ranged rifles.

    Search for vanilla or vanila server in community section , in this server u will find loot easily. You need a sniper rifle because it will kill in one shot to the head and you can find sniper rifle on the deer stand or houses near to deer stand. Use iZurvive app ,will help u most. I killed a deer on bottom left side of the map.

    If u could not find a deer try to search it on left side of the map as these deer do not stay at same place ,when someone fire a shot they just ran away from there actual position.

    A request if you dislike this pls give your views. As i tried to complete this game as early as possible ,have spent 30hr+ on this game to get the achievements only so i dont know about the whole map just shared my experience how i got it.
