On the raft build a 3x3 foundation with 3 walls high and a ramp going up into the raft. Go to the winter area youll find Mammoths there. Get it into the raft. Once in the raft shoot it with tranq arrows. Starve it and then feed. Kibble is 80times its food.
Build a raft with about 9 or so foundations/ ceiling and put Walls on the perimeter and ramps in the front and put large storage boxes along the walls and go to the swamp with a buddy and just sit on the mammoth on the front of the raft and swing away. Best wood/thatch/shroom farm ever
Good for berries late game and or wood saddle is pretty cheap and is a all around good game upgrade its weight or health to tank turrets but a turtle is much better. It can be picked up by a quetzal so you can tame it at your base the attic isn't a very safe place to knock anything out.
I'd suggest kiting it to your base and tranq'n it with an anky or dino with high health that you can shoot off to make for an easy solo tame.Get that raptor kibble and bam you got yourself a snuffalufagus. Your welcome
Tame on the outskirts of the winter biome close to the ocean, there’s more visibility and you only have to watch for threats from one direction. Helpful because these guys take a long time to tame and everything in the winter biome is aggressive to them!
Excellent for gathering wood in the Tundra when the Castoroides is too weak to survive over there. If using a lower level mammoth, simply have a pack of dire wolves follow you and you will never have a problem.
