I think y’all are making it too hard. I found one by a rock hill, and punched it with my fists until it was unconscious (which didn’t take a long time). I am a noob, I just started yesterday yet picked a hard spawn. I died from the cold, then got tintoberries and came back. It was a super quick tame because it was a low level!! Anyway, it died from a carno while going back to my base. It got it down to 42 hp. RIP new deer friend.
Just get your longneck and two tranq darts, hop on your argy with a friend on his/her argy and go to redwoods, get super close and shoot it, then get 20 tintoberries and feed it to the Megaloceros, the males have antlers and the females don’t have antlers, up this so all can see
My fastest mount. Best for taming because you can shoot tranqs from the back of it while keeping your distance. Then when the animal your taming decides it's time to turn tail and run you can chase it down and shoot tranqs at it. I love the moose! Females are fastest.
