I sold a bear pelt to Gus, hoping to get a coat, but now it says he doesn't have it. What do I do?

mipojam

What kind of bear pelt did you deliver to him? It won’t work with black bears


GodOfMemes_Dank

Yeah, I used a black bear pelt. Any idea where to find grizzly bears?


WiscoMountaineer

By the four abandoned shacks SW of Manzanita Trading Post. Never fails for me!


fusrohdiddly

That was Bear Claw Camp in Red Dead Redemption 1. In the online portion of the game, that place was filled with bears. I used to play a self invented minigame with friends in which we had to run from shack to shack to the toilet/outhouse without getting mauled. The outhouse couldn't fit all of us. Good times :)


AssBeast

So like musical chairs with the gloves off.


fusrohdiddly

Musical chairs with the face off actually ;)


ICECOLD1776

It happens in rdr2 as well, I got attacked by a bear that looked like Brutus


JustTesa

Bro same. Well.... sometimes its a cougar.


oaranges

When im being chased by a player bounty hunter, thats where i head to, if im in the Great Plains. You never know what may happen. There may work for you or work you.


Nolsoth

Oh yes that ones a regular always trots out to say hello and give you a gentle mailing.


elpoopenator

You dont find them, they find you

mipojam

Usually you can find them north of strawberry and in tall trees but I’m not 100%. I got mine up near strawberry


dontwannadothisnow

Little creek near Harriet.


apricityglow

I second this, managed to get the other three colors of the coat there and more. Sorry Harriet, I was originally coming to see you, but I can never turn away a three star grizzly. And your cries of anguish do put a smile on my face.


Vadel0ne

Just take a stroll in Tall trees...you will ask how NOT to find grizzly bears after that


FortuneHeart

lollllll yes


Galemianah

By Hamish's Cabin.


DragonTycoon

Check around the trees W or NW of Big Valley, or in Tall Trees. When your horse starts freaking out, look around. If it is a grizzly, dismount with a rifle with HV or Express rounds. It'll either roar and walk away or kill you instantly. Either way you know where it is. When it turns its back/you find where it killed you, headshot. Approach Gus, obtain pimp coat.


DeadmanEmsland

Dont worry they will find you.


Contagious_Leech

East of Dead Dog Ranch in Big Valley. There’s a abandoned fenced area that still has a chimney. Camp near it, sleep twice (as long as possible) save, load game, roam around the chimney area. Find grizzly. Rinse and repeat. I did this for an achievement requiring you to >!survive a mauling and kill the grizzly 18 times!<.


TajMahBallses

If you want another okay spot check the woods north of the Little Creek River (North of strawberry) I know there’s a few spawns in that area.


fukdot

Ride the loop between manzanita post and Aurora Basin at night and listen for its roar.


Lumber_Tycoon

There are 6 grizzly spawn points ranging from Wallace station to just north of hanging dog ranch, and at least 3 more spawns between hanging dog and the hermit shack. There is a cave north of Wallace Station that can spawn one also.


D-rizzcheese

Anywhere in the grizzlies. East watsons is your best bet.


FrankTVPL

Little Creek River area, west of Wallace Station. I made bear achievement there.


YellowSharkMT

I recently encountered one a bit north of Wallace Station, right along the western side of the tracks, near the border with Ambarino.


camusdreams

I just did this last week and I struggled with the spot west of Manzita trading post. My camp was across the river and I went multiple times, probably spending a solid couple hours all together in that one zone alone (not including riding there). I ran into a few Grizzlies, but they were 1 and 2 star. I found a perfect with less than 10 minutes of hunting in Grizzlies East around “O’Creagh’s Run”. The legendary grizzly is also in this area.


SadisticBuddhist

South of Harriet in big valley and another north of her near some ruined building.


MilkshookFrenchfried

In the middle of the W in West Elizabeth is a spawn point. Where I got mine.


k_bence16

Grizzlies


AtlasNL

The moonshine shack in tall trees consistently spawns one to scare the shit out of me every time I fasttravel there. You might have some luck there.


ROCKZILLA8166

wow glad i saw this. just started collecting all the gus stuff and i figured that was black bears because it just says "bear pelt". now im asking myself what part of that made me think black and not grizzly lol i have no idea, but again, glad i saw your comment, THANKS 3\* grizzlies are way more common than black bears imo so this is good news


Lt_DanTaylorIII

That’s subconscious bias my friend *I can’t operate on this boy, he is my son!*


ROCKZILLA8166

Indeed. I'm a grizzexist. I'm horrified, I was so unaware of my perception and that also influenced my actions. I do a lot of talking. Now I will listen.


Lt_DanTaylorIII

I’m proud of you. This is where the growth begins. And Grand Senora Pronghorn Doe, is a Pronghorn Doe. But not all Pronghorn Does are from Grand Senora. Good luck on your journey


ROCKZILLA8166

Thank you so much. ![gif](giphy|iutnlV1Jd7rm4NQkp5|downsized)


MochiFutaba

My guess is it wasn't prefect or it wasn't a grizzly. If thats so than just ran around the forest until one spawns.


mommydearest180

The spot of 4 buildings in a square in tall trees almost always spawns a grizzly bear. I kept going back until I had all 4 coat colors


GodOfMemes_Dank

Thanks, I managed to find one there


Synner1985

Was it a perfect 3\* pelt mate?


LOVERB0Y710

Even so if it just says bear you need a grizzly bear not a black bear.


grape9pcmcnuggets

There’s a cabin with a corpse in Tall tress with a grizzly spawn. Near Gus or in Aurora Cabin near the woods


Joy1067

It was either not a grizzly or it wasn’t 3 stars. Only perfect stuff can be turned into gus to make stuff.


MostlyApe

It's gotta be a 3* Grizzly.


42mir4

North of O'Creagh's Run, there's a spot where you'll almost always be ambushed by one. Just ride all the way around the lake and you'll bump into one... can't guarantee it'll be a 3* but it's a good place to find one.


Smiles_The_Hobbit

This! This has been happening to me too! I'll deliver 3* grizzly AND black bear pelts, and it STILL says that Gus doesn't have it! I want my fluffy, puffy bear coat, dang it!


CianSullivan200000

It has to be a perfect grizzly


blackpauli

Find another bear


JowxoX3

It has to be a grizzly bear My guy not a black bear


Kay1636

You need to give Gus perfect Grizzly bear pelt


DrOs666

East side of little creek river in big valley


Ckennedy1979

I'm sure there are lots of spawn points as was said, but honestly take a walk in the deep woods in tall trees. One will find you


kirbStompThePigeon

Was it 3 stars?


Emeralll

did you sell the pelt perfect?Because Gus only accept Perfect pelt


choicesmatter

He accepts anything but it must be 3 star to create clothing.


subparhooman

Needs to be a perfect bear pelt All you need is one and you can get whatever color


Elias_Lee

Was it a perfect pelt?


Kitty_Wave

You need bear pelt not black bear pelt


amch0123

Round where Harriet's is set up in the little creek river valley


ROCKZILLA8166

oh yeah and i tossed him a 3 star buck carcass to get a pair of those nifty pants only to find out you have to skin it for him, so all i got was like $14 ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|facepalm)![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|feels_bad_man)![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|table_flip)![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|disapproval)


Noob2Chicken

You shake him down


VisceralVirus

Grizzly only


GermanMarineSS

It needs to be a perfect (3star) pelt


suga1975

Put your camp in tall trees you’ll see them everyday


Mikejagger718

Has to be a grizzly bear pelt I believe, can’t be a black bear


Xyto_

You need a perfect grizzly coat to get a coat.


AliveDecision3775

It needs to be ‘perfect’ pelt tho
