Thankfully this is a relatively easy mission that sees you hunting with your son in the outback. Speak with your son by the tree and then follow your hunting dog into the forest to hunt.

Your first target is an Elk and you’re preferred weapon of choice is the Sniper Rifle as you’ll ideally want a headshot to take this beast of an animal down. Once you spot one, line it up and take it down as quickly as possible. Now approach it and skin it and follow your dog again.

This time you’ll encounter a herd of Elk, so kill them all and wait for your son to skin one first before finishing off the rest yourself. Now head over to Manzantia and sell all of your Elk skins (and if you want to sell anything else you’ve accumulated up to now, feel free).

Ride all the way back with Jack to the barn, and when you reach it the mission will end.
