In PvE you can't carry untamed Dino's, which makes taming slightly more difficult. It's recommended to have a high level Dino, whether land or air, to help protect your KO'd saber.
Once you find a saber in which you want to tame, use a weak ranged weapon to lure it to attack you. I'm sure if you are taming you know regions where certain Dino's spawn. You will want to lure your saber to the most passive area as close to you as possible.
Once you have your saber in a region you feel safe in grab a rifle and aim for the head (with tranq darts of course) as kill rates with most all methods are too high to risk it.
You will NOT require any narcs as the sabers torpor decreases very slowly. You can use the calculators and timers on Here to let you know when to feed your saber.
Build a small 1 square hut that you can lure the saber inside of (I recommend at least stone), once the saber is KO inside close it up with the food in its inventory. ~Hawk
Easily knocked out when you use a bloa. When stuck shoot in head while you can and itll go down quickly. Tranq darts make the process quicker, but arrows will do the job just fine. They can be picked up and dropped into safe taming cages by argies to make this easy tame all the more easy.
If you need to tame one follow my instructions carefully, first thing you wanna do is find a sabertooth, where it is by itself, you can either trap it or bola it, personally either is good but I usually bola them, then I get tranq arrows and shoot it in the head with it I got a low level one cause I was desperate for one and it only took 6-7 tranq arrows, you can use a bow or crossbow whatever you like, I do recommend crossbow though since it’s a little more effective. You also can use meat or prime meat I highly recommend prime, but if you don’t have that use regular meat. I highly suggest taking narcotics, just in case it wakes up, hope this was helpful.
