Wolves have been bothering the Marston cattle herd. Time to step up Jack's hunting lesson.
+50 Fame, +150 Honor
John approaches Jack who is practice shooting. He gives Jack some familiar advice but Jack shrugs it off and tells his father there's no point learning from him since he'll just run off again. John doesn't let the situation deteriorate and both listen to the sound of wolves in the far distance. John says the wolves have been after their herd and need to get scared off. Jack agrees to accompany him and the two start walking.
Mount your horse and wait for Jack to do the same. When he's ready follow Rufus again with Jack back into Tall Trees. The conversation will continue with Jack complaining about how sometimes he's treated as an adult and sometimes as a kid - the part he dislikes. John says things will get better and Jack apologizes for his mood. He asks about John's father but John never really got to know him. He died in a bar fight when John was little - or so he was told.
In the snowy section of Tall Trees, near the first elk in the previous outing, Rufus will pick up a scent. The conversation turns to Uncle. He's not really John's uncle but has been around since John was a kid. Eventually near a road a pack of five wolves is spotted. Run over and kill all of them with Jack helping. When you approach they will come after you so be ready and quick on the trigger.
With all the wolves dead, Rufus sniffs out more. Usually you are taken down the hill towards the river where the second group of elk was previously - which makes sense if the wolves were feeding on them. From there Rufus heads upstream and back into snowy Tanner's Reach. On the far side of a hill a second pack of six wolves is found. Sometimes Rufus goes straight to them from the previous pack and sometimes the game glitches more to show the second pack right away. Once again kill all of the wolves.
When they are all dead, head back home. John compliments his son's shooting and Jack will show his growing excitement for hunting. John tells him he isn't ready to go out alone yet and that they'll go out again soon. Although Jack had spoken of wanting to be a government man, he now jokes that the father & son team should become outlaws. John tells him books and the real world are different. The life of crime John knows isn't a life Jack wants. Things were different when John was a kid. Eventually you'll reach the marker in Beecher's Hope.
After dismounting their horses, John tells Jack he's turning into a decent hunter but needs to stay out of trouble
. He gives him a pat and Jack walks away.
- Run to and mount your horse.
- Follow Rufus into the woods.
- When you near the road intersection, sprint ahead to trigger the first wolf pack.
- Quickly Dead-Eye and headshot the wolves. Use a rifle to get them from a distance and it's possible to kill all five in one burst.
- If you do the previous fast enough, Rufus will still be a bit behind. Quickly get on the road and sprint to the second pack (extra arrow). Stay on the road and do not tire out your horse. You should be able to trigger the second pack before failing to return to Rufus.
- If you have trouble with the above, just follow Rufus. When you get near the cabin in Tanner's Reach sprint over or around the hill ahead to trigger the second pack.
- Again, quickly Dead-Eye/headshot the six wolves. These are a little more difficult to hit in multiples since there are plenty of trees around.
- As soon as all the wolves are dead sprint back home.
