Back when I was level 28(that was 11 months ago) I WAS STILL ON HETBIVORE ISLAND! Like seriously there's nothing to tame but dodos, persons and paras, until I found a black egg... I thought it belongs to that therezinasaurus who decided to show up but before I pick it up I read what it said and I was exited! A carno egg! I trackt down the carno and knockt him out using tranqs and crossbow(he is a bit slow) I ran home to grab narcotics and showed dodomeat down its throat and after 46m i hade a carno
You just need a couple trank arrows, at least about nine, maybe some hide armor, and then climb up onto a rock that he can’t get up onto, then shoot him or something to Agro him, and once he comes to the base of the rock and attempts to kill you, shoot him with the tranks. Then when he tries to run away, just jump down and chase him. But make sure he doesn’t get KOed in water.
I recommend, if u don’t have a spyglass, to get enough arrows for a 150. Just in case the Carno you have your eye on happens to be that. I tamed a lvl 60 but outrunning it with my raptor and shooting it with arrows. Its not easy, but it gets the job done without having to build traps and stuff like that. You can just bear trap it and knock it that way.
Rookie taming method (worked first time):
1. Craft a larg bear trap (and about 15 tranq arrows)
2. Find a carno out In the open and easy to see/fire at
3.get carno to aggro on you (somehow) and walk into the trap
4. Tranq it quickly before it breaks out
