    • Lemoyne
      Southeast of Braithwaite Manor is a large woodland and its name is Old Harry Fen. Here, you usually will be able to discover panthers.
    • Lemoyne
      East of Lagras in the wooded wetlands is another area that you can access to find panthers.

It is important for you to know that when you try to hunt panthers in these locations, you have to be careful. It is because they can be hard to find because they blend in well with the surrounding environments. Also, they are deadly hunters so that it will be easier for them to ambush you. Once again, you have to be careful when you are hunting panthers in the locations mentioned above and make sure that you mask your scent with scent lotion before you go to these regions.

If you want to get a perfect pelt from a panther, a 3-star animal must be found by you and you have to use a rifle with High Velocity or Express ammo or a bow which has an Improved Arrow. Whatever weapon that you choose to use, you have to make sure that you aim for the weak points of the panther, namely on its head or heart and you have to kill it in a single shot.

If you successfully find and hunt a panther in Red Dead Redemption 2, you will be given a Perfect Panther Pelt and some precious Big Game Meat as rewards. Let’s say that you can get a Perfect Deer Pelt and Perfect Elk Pelt. If so, you are able to use all three to craft the Kit Satchel Camp Upgrade.

Some Tips to Hunt Panthers in Red Dead Redemption 2

According to the Red Dead Wiki, here are some tips to hunt panthers in Red Dead Redemption 2.

    • Same as the cougar, the panther is very aggressive. This animal will attack you on sight. It may quickly attack you or it may wait in the bushes for an ambush. So, you have to be very careful when you go into the areas where panthers are commonly found. In this situation, the Eagle Eye is very useful because it is difficult to detect panthers in the forest.
    • Killing panthers from a distance is the safest method if you want to hunt panthers. You are able to place predator bait in an open area where it is done to lure a panther out and then you have to shoot the panthers with a scoped rifle. If you want, you are also able to choose a bolder method. You can use yourself as bait by keeping your weapon drawn whether bow or rifle and then you have to ride your horse into the hunting area. When you find a panther, then you have to shoot it as fast as possible.
    • You have to make sure that you do not let a panther come too close because it is a predator which is very agile and it can kill you at close range.
    • If you hunt a pristine panther for getting the Kit Satchel, Old Harry Fen is far more likely than East of Lagrans to actually have panthers. Nevertheless, there will only be one around for you to fight each time you arrive in the region and a new one will not spawn until you enter again from very far away. So, the best way is to go fast to Rhodes and save the game just south of Bolger Glade. When you face the panther and then you find that the quality is not 3-star or you may be killed, just reload.
    • If you want to kill the panther cleanly for a high quality pelt, you need a high-damage weapon such as an express cartridge or split point cartridge rifle shot or an improved arrow. However, you have to be careful so that it does not damage the pelt. So, headshot is better to do. If you use explosive ammunition, it will reduce the quality to 1-star.

    • You are able to find a  Cat Skull Mask in Lakay to the southwest of its spawn area.
    • You need a perfect panther pelt to get the Kit Satchel upgrade.
    • At first glance, the species of the Panther seems dubious. This animal acts and has the same size as a Cougar. However, it has rosettes which remind you of a jaguar or leopard. The panther roars while cougars can only hiss and meow in real life. The photo of Compendium for the panther in the game is a jaguar and it adds more confusion. To add to the confusion further, the Legendary variant of the Panther is named Giaguaro.
