The Legendary Elk is a Massive-sized animal of the Elk species, featured in Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online.

As a Legendary Animal, the Legendary Elk is one of a kind: once you kill it, it will not appear again.

This animal can be hunted and skinned. It's not required for the "Zoologist" and "Skin Deep" Achievements.

Legendary Elk Details & Location:

The Legendary Elk is endemic to Cumberland Forest, New Hanover. The distinguishable white hair and shaggy mane make this elk different to other elks in the region. Its herbivore diet includes grasses, leaves, bark and plants. Elk are easily startled so it is advised to keep as much distance as possible whilst hunting. Long range weapons like a Bow with Improved Arrows, or a long scope rifle, are considered to be the best for hunting. Killing this animal will give you the opportunity to craft a rare trinket.

Legendary Elk Hunting Tips:

The Legendary Elk yields an antler that can be used in crafting. Use a long scope rifle for a clean kill.
