How to Hunt an animal
You need to locate some animals. This should be easy enough, right now they are pretty abundant and you shouldn’t have to stray too far from a town to bump into some sort of animal. Once you’ve found your prey, go ahead and kill it. You can kill it with a gun, a melee weapon or even your bare hands.
When your prey is dead, you need to approach the corpse with your knife and you will get the option to ‘skin and quarter’ the animal. Doing so will give you a pelt, and some raw meat. You can eat the raw meat as it is but it will make you sick.
