If you have access to a snow owl, you can tame these with any crossbow! Just shoot it until it looks bloody, and heal it with the snow owlโ€™s ability. Do it so that it heals quite a bit, but not so long that the torpor drains back empty. Then hop off the owl and continue shooting it with tranq arrows. I knocked a 140 with a 279 crossbow and using this method it had over half hp remaining once it finally went down.
