Legendary white bison is one of the unique animals in Red Dead Redemption 2. If you’re into hunting, you’ll probably want to give it a try. Even if you aren’t – there’s a nice hat and a great little talisman in it if you succeed. The biggest problem is obviously finding the beast, as it usualy is. If you’re stuck on this hunt, our Red Dead Redemption 2 legendary white bison location guide will help you see it through to the bitter end.
Where to find legendary white bison?
If you give it some thought, since the bison is white, it would make sense for it to hang out in a snowy area. It’s a herbivore, and although bisons have been known to take care of themselves rather nicely, the added protection/obfuscation wouldn’t hurt. As it turns out, that’s exactly where the beast is. You’ll find it in the northwestern corner of the map, on the east side of Lake Isabella. And it’s not the only white animal that enjoys this place – the arabian horse can be found there as well.
Once you enter its domain, the game will tell you you’ve arrived, so you can start tracking it. Look around for fur or droppings, then follow the trail until you find it. We recommend you use a bow with improved arrows or a rifle with high impact bullets. The bison might try to run away, but it also might charge at you, so it’s worth having some dead eye replenishment with you.
After you manage to kill it and skin it, you’ll get the a pelt you can take to a trapper to get a Legendary White Bison hat or coat, as well as a horn you can bring to the fence to craft a Bison Horn Talisman, which unlocks a perk.
