In order to sell animal pelts for cash or upgrades in Red Dead Redemption 2, players need to visit the Trapper - but his exact location can be hard to find. One of the best things about Rockstar Games' latest title is that it goes all in on the Western aspect, and that includes hunting. Of course, 2010's Red Dead Redemption game also included hunting, but it was more rudimentary than what the studio has implemented with Red Dead Redemption 2 this time around.
In Red Dead Redemption 2, players are introduced to the world of hunting, searching for legendary animals, and selling to the Trapper by searching for a bear with Hosea at the start of Chapter 2: Horseshoe Overlook. From that point onward, players can use the Legendary Animal map they obtain early on in the game to search for legendary animals across the game's open world. But what they do once they find those animals, kill them, and skin them is something else entirely, and it's something that's left a number of players bewildered.
Although players have the option of donating their animal pelts to Pearson in the camp, in order to benefit the rest of the Van der Linde gang, the best option is actually to find the Trapper in the open world and sell it to him for cash. If players have a legendary animal pelt, they can even use it for upgrades. But finding the Trapper is the difficult part since he's constantly moving (somewhat like Destiny's Xur every weekend). However, once players reach Chapter 4, they can visit the Trapper at his shop in Saint Denis, specifically in the eastern region of the city.
If players are out in the wilderness, though, the Trapper can be found in four other locations around Red Dead Redemption 2's open world: west of Big Valley and north of Owanjila lake; east of Riggs Station in West Elizabeth (before Bard's Crossing); southwest of Annesburg, near Elysian Pool; and southwest of Manzanita Post, near the end of the Lower Montana River. It may take some time to open up the world in order to spot the Trapper on the map, but if players need to sell a few animal pelts to get them off their horses back, then they can head to any one of the aforementioned areas to find the Trapper. However, by Chapter 4, they can just head into Saint Denis to sell all their animal pelts with ease.
Of course, once players find the Trapper in Red Dead Redemption 2, they don't only have to sell animal pelts for cash; they can also acquire full outfit sets or individual clothing items, or even use their animal pelts and cash to purchase special items as well as reinforced equipment for either themselves or their trusty horse (here's a guide on how to level up a horse's bond in Red Dead Redemption 2). But first... players need to find animal pelts to use/sell before even thinking about heading to the Trapper.
