As you progress through the woods of Montana it is important that you read notes, pick up maps, check road signs and talk to the Hope County residents after you save them. Doing this will provide you the location of Peggie shrines and outpusts to raid as well hunting locations to hunt for wildlife.

ALL Animals & Fish Locations

The following video is a montage showing you the locations of the best hunting spots / fishing spots to get ALL the animals and fish needed for the challenges you need to complete to get the 'Been There, Done That' Trophy.

Compound Bow

This is the best weapon in the game, it is silent, accurate and capable of taking out Peggies with one hit. You will find one in the Silver Lake Boathouse which is located on the west-side coast of Dutch's island. To reach it you must swim inside, climb up, and interact with the power switch on the wall. Grab the Boathouse Key from beside the door, use it to open the door, then head back to the shed. Turn the wheel to the left of the shed to pump out the water, then you can open the hatch to gain access to the prepper stash. Once inside there will be a wooden barricade you must smash to access the back room, and it’s in the back room along with a decent amount of cash.

Before this quest becomes available you must liberate John's Region. Once done you will randomly recieve a call from Kim Rye telling you to come see her, which will begin the quest.

While trying to sneak up to the enemy you will be able to tell if they have spotted you by the curved line that appears around the edge of the screen as it will point in the general direction of whoever has spotted you. This curved line will then gradually fill up from black to white, at which point they will open fire. You can prevent it reaching that point by hiding and breaking line-of-sight.

The most effective strategy is a stealth based one. Stay crouched down in the thick grass and bushes so they conceal you and either sneak up to the enemy so you are close enough for an instant takedown, or use a silent weapon to pick them off before they spot you.
