I think some Screenshots help more then Videos, so here are a few. To get the Coureur des Bois Achievement you need to find three Shops in New York, Bosten and the Frontier. In every of the nine Shops you need to sell one undamaged pelt. The Shops are maybe not displayed on your map, look out for Houses with "General Store" Shields and white-glow-something-interact-markers near the Door (see 1st Screenshot)

To get undamaged pelts you have to kill animals with the hidden blade and skin them

Probs to xxGoofsterxx for the Locations, i missed one in the Frontier
BridgeTheGidgeI'd like to add that you actually have to walk into the stores not just find them. I found them all but I didn't go into some, so I couldn't trade with them until I did.

MC0REBECould you maybe add the hunting area for the Frontier? That would help immensely. Good job though! +1

Herr MurphyFor something like this, I think maps are way better than a video guide. Good job.

Also I would like to note that, for me at least, it seems like using the 'sell all' option at a store doesn't count for this. I did that at the first store I went to, which included many undamaged pelts, but the achievement did pop for me until I went back to that store and sold just the pelts themselves.

BaneDainJust did this for the third time sold an undamaged pelt at all stores twice now and even tried sending convoys to all the stores and still no achievement though I can't send a convoy to the third store in Boston...
Im guessing its glitched?

oddworld18did ubisoft change anything about undamaged pelts with the most recent set of patches? i haven't acquired a single undamaged pelt since my first week playing, and i'm only killing animals with the hidden blade. even a hare in a snare didn't get me an undamaged pelt...

PHARREAL87just sold all my pelts, then went hunting and killed all with hidden blade, then sold 1 perfect pelt to all 9 locations, NO ACHIEVEMENT. any help?
Posted by PHARREAL87 on 06 May 13 at 14:52
KJer25Hey Pharreal87...I just got this achievement on May 18th, so all is well with the patches...I'm not sure if this matters but maybe try selling 9 different types of pelts ...Also, be positive it says that the pelt is in perfect condition before you sell...Wish I could help more, but not sure why you are having problems getting it to pop.

Or1g1nal S1nn3rCan you do this with convoys or do you have to physically be in every shop when selling the pelt?

King fiShiZEvery Shop

InfomaniaxI've been to all of these and sold an undamaged pelt at every one. But the achievement will not ping. I've noticed that on the map they are all showing as NOT visited. Is this something anyone else is experiencing?

Edit: I've manged it, you need to sell pelts of mall animals... Not hides of the larger adhesive animals
