Wagons for Hunting?

I started over and then I got thinking, when hunting can find a wagon for carrying animals back?  Cause some animals, you hunt and stow on your horse then you have to go back and turn them over to butcher or your camp and then go back to hunt.

You'd have to steal one, but I might try that now

Yep, works. You can't jump when you are carrying an animal so you have to reverse next to a big rock you can walk to the top of without climbing, then step onto the wagon. Also you have to drive fairly slow.

Thank you Good Sir!  I guess I will be doing some hunting.  How many can you carry in a wagon or have you got that far?

Just pile em up till they fall off. I found a wagon that had oranges in so they took up some room but I bet you could get a load on there. 

@BropolloCreed79 might be a way of making your corpse wall.

Lol, I'm still in Chapter 2 because I keep getting sidetracked with little "experiments" like this.

Looks like Chapter 3 is going to have to wait one more night.  I already feel the beginnings of a plan taking shape that involves a wagon, some O'Driscolls, maybe a few of those jerks from the oil fields, and a train track.

I recently built a wall of lawmen corpses inside the bank in St Denis quite accidentally.

LOL it sounds like some of you are being pretty mean in game.  :D

About the meanest thing I did was when I was riding along and there was a woman being kidnapped tied on the back of a horse ... I reacted and shot the horseman, and chased down the horse with her on it.  Of course she's still tied up, and she's just .. nagging me .. demanding I get her off the horse, and just annoying as &^%$.  So I take her off, toss her on the ground, and loot the guy, try to hide his body in some bushes, and the whole time she's yelling for me to untie her, and being demanding ... so ... I carried her up on a cliff and put a bullet in her head.  Screw the reward or whatever else that might have come of it lol ...

I use two horses.

One is my main horse which is so faithful he can't be made any more faithful, lots of petting, sugar treats, petting him while riding, leading him around, I did it all to suck up to that horse.

Second horse are ones I just randomly find in game, and I'll do the same while riding them, whistling for my main horse to follow where ever I go.  Once I get the horse a faithful and leveled up to 2 or 3, I'll typically sell it, for some reason it's worth more once you level it up.

In the mean time I ride the secondary horse to level it up, and use it to for hunting, with my primary being whistled along behind me.

If you do this, make sure that you have the weapons you might need on you, because you can't switch weapons from the horse while you're on the secondary, you'll have to stop, get off, and go to your primary to change weapons.

And ... of course ... don't forget to whistle for your main horse to follow as you're going around map!

Side note, it's also a bit of a hassle to keep multiple horses fed and groomed.

 

Edit, btw, in theory once you had the secondary horse leveled up and faithful, responding well to whistles, etc, you could get a third, fourth, etc, and when you whistle they'd all follow you around map, but it can actually be annoying sometimes to even have two horses doing this if you are in an area where they get in each other's way - like in town.  Still, I haven't done it, but I bet it's hysterical to whistle and have like 50 horses come over lol.

Really? I need to try this!, I usually reach Level 1 bonding not long after taming them. The most I've sold a horse for was $5.20, I believe they were a Hungarian Halfbred and a Thoroughbred. Morgans, Kentucky Saddlers and Tennessee Walkers seem to be worth half as much. I have found Appaloosas and Nokotas in the wild but haven't tamed them yet.

It's inefficient from a cost-benefit perspective.  You need to feed and invest time with that horse before selling it, when its quicker and easier to steal from folks or murder encampments of O'Driscolls.  They're usually good for anywhere from $15-$50 in loot to the fence if you clean them out each time--all for 2 minutes of work.

I've been hunting near the camp while riding a 'spare' horse, whistled for it to put my kill on board, and suddenly my Main fully leveled horse comes galloping over. XD I usually end up with two horses while hunting.

I found that you can use multiple horses to carry multiple animal  carcasses. 

 

You have them follow you on your main horse by pressing LT while you stand a few feet, or are a few feet away from that horse some options will appear with commands stay ,follow, flee … choose follow of course is better then using whistle because whistle is to call your horse that cant get to you while you are mounted upon another horse which in turn if you don't continue to whistle the horse will eventually stop trying, so you need to execute the command for follow the way I said, or one time you might have to back track to get your horse that you forgot to re-whistle for... and he might be to far to be whistled.

 

But if you use follow while you are on the horse it will follow you even if you get off the horse which is better because when you make a kill you want it to be right next to you for the stowing of the caraccas as quick as possible trust me the little things make all the difference in time.

If im not mistaken I don't think you can tame or, have tamed more then 4 horses at a time but I could be wrong, but I believe watching a cut scene at the beginning with a tutorial stating you could only own 3 horses, but theres a fourth temp horse in the stable that when you load the game without a horse and you are not at camp or a town the horse is there as a curtesy of the game developers so your not stuck in the middle of no where with no horse...

Miss spelling, and rephrasing.
