Red Dead Online: Best Pronghorn Hunting Locations

The pronghorn is a deer-like mammal found in Red Dead Redemption 2 with small horns resembling, well, prongs. Aside from making a hearty meal out of their meat, pronghorn skin is valuable for crafting and trade. Not to mention you’ll likely be tasked with skinning them at some point to complete Daily Challenges in Red Dead Online.

There are three breeds of Pronghorn, the American, the Baja California, and the Sonoran. The Baja and the Sonoran Pronghorns are exclusive to New Austin and comprise the greater population, while the American Pronghorn roams throughout West Elizabeth and New Hanover. No matter which breed you are after, here are the best locations for pronghorn hunting in RDR2 and RDO.

Best Pronghorn Locations

New Austin

  • You’ll find pronghorn roaming south to southwest of Ratherskeller Fork in the Gaptooth Ridge region of New Austin.
  • From there, you can follow the state border southwest to patrol a couple of other pronghorn habitats. The Baja California Pronghorn is partial to the Gaptooth Ridge region, so don’t be surprised to find them taking up local residency.
  • They can be found in and around the town of Tumbleweed to the east as well.
  • Sonoran Pronghorn commonly grace the open plains in New Austin, so you’ll likely find them across the open expanse southwest of Tumbleweed.
  • The Rio Bravo region as a whole makes for some prime pronghorn hunting grounds. The Baja California is also indigenous to these parts.
  • Pronghorns roam the desert and hills south of Armadillo in Cholla Springs. This habitat runs between the town from above Lake Don Hulio and along Jordan’s Gap, almost as far north as Twin Rocks.
  • You may find them wandering southeast and northwest of Armadillo as well.
  • To the east in Hennigan’s Stead, pronghorn are found roaming from north to south across the central region, trekking in and around MacFarlane’s Ranch and below.
  • You may also spot a smaller population further west near the San Luis River.
