Where to find legendary coyote in RDR2?

The legendary coyote roams the area in the north of Scarlet Meadows, near the border between Lemoyne and New Hanover. You can find it by both day and night, but you’ll probably want to use some predator bait to lure it out of its hiding place. Use your tracking powers to find a broken twig, some tracks, a bunch of fur or the coyote’s faeces. This will spawn a golden trail you can follow around the area, which should ultimately lead you to the beast itself. Using a rifle with dead eye should do the trick quickly enough – you don’t have to worry about pelt quality here, as it’ll always turn out the same, no matter which weapons you use.

Once you’ve killed and skinned the beast, you’ll get the legendary coyote pelt. If you sell it to a trapper, you’ll be able to craft the Legendary Coyote Mountain Cap and the Legendary Coyote Half Chaps. You’ll also get the legendary coyote fang. Bring this one to a fence, and he’ll allow you to make the Coyote Fang Trinket, a talisman that increases dead eye experience gain by 10%.
