No Herbs in New Austin

I am in New Austin with Arthur and John (the work around of the Angelo Bronte glitch), and I can shoot animals and buy clothes and guns, but I can’t pick herbs. Does anyone know how to pick herbs? It’s nice to get some skins for outfits, but no herbs glow. I figure I am probably SOL, but thought I would ask in case someone knows a work around.

Herbs glow if you use the "focus" option (or whatever it's called).  On PS4 you press L3 and R3 simultaneously IIRC to activate it.  

What system are you on OP?  If nothing is glowing while in this mode, then I suspect nothing is there to pick or perhaps those that are might be out of range?  On PS4 the action to pick will show up on the screen when you're in position near the plant(s).

Yeah, I have the challenges open and I have been using the eagle eye mode. I think it’s because I am *technically* still in the mission and time is frozen at 3 AM. I am able to get the materials for The Rattler outfit, but no herbs or legendary animals, which is what I was hoping for but I didn’t start another play through until after the dang patch and didn’t know until I was far in that it was patched. But I did get some cool outfits from the store and some roast beef in Tumbleweed. No horses for sale but I am happy with my current steed.

Certain missions can interrupt this in my experience. If it still doesn't work for you after you are out of that mission, then something is up with the game for sure.

I had this issue and didn't know what it was for the longest time. I don't get why only certain missions don't allow you to pick anything. Like if you pass something useful, be it in a mission or not, it should let you grab it.

This is what made me give up on the herbalist challenges. It never seemed to work right all the time. I still don't think I ever completed it.

It helps if you just focus on it when randomly roaming. I didn't do it while in missions or active storyline angles.
