In the redwoods, be sure to fly above the lowest limbs or they will surely jump of the tree and kill you . There's nothing you can do about it. But if you are careful and use a spy glass you can see them on the side of the tree. Then if your using a argi. Just fly above him and pluck him right from the tree. Then take him and drop him in a taming pin. One last thing , don't let him run out of food or you will have to start all over. Happy hunting!
The redwoods are now basically a no fly zone, I lost a quetz, and a pter to these bastards. They jump out of the tree, rip you off your mount, and then pin you and your mastercraft armor to the ground and murder you.
