According to a cursory Google search, the combined worth of an adult buck’s meat is around $1,250 USD. That’s certainly nothing to sneeze at, even with the mountain of paperwork you have to file to hunt and sell wild game. Thankfully, you don’t have to worry about paperwork in Way of the Hunter, just the hunting and the selling. Here’s how to sell animals in Way of the Hunter.
How to Sell Animals in Way of the Hunter
Whenever you successfully shoot down an animal in Way of the Hunter, be it a deer, a pheasant, or whatever else was looking at you funny, you can go over to their body afterward and interact with it to get a readout of how the shot went.
This menu features four tabs: the Bullet Camera, the Overview, the Hunt, and the Trophy. If you’re looking to sell the meat of the animal you shot, then you’re interested in the Hunt tab. The Hunt tab features a readout of how long you were hunting your prey, how far they ran if you spooked them, their estimated body weight, and how much of that weight they lost from a bullet flying through them.
The game will automatically factor these stats together, along with the current market price of the meat of the animal in question, to determine the weight of the meat you can sell. All of this adds up to the total sell price, shown in large print near the bottom of the screen. If you like what you see, simply press the C key/Y button/triangle button to instantly sell the meat for its estimated value.
Remember that if you’re looking to sell an animal’s meat, you need to kill them as quickly and cleanly as possible. A pinpoint rifle shot to the head will preserve the majority of the body, which in turn means the most possible meat for you to sell. This is more important for larger game like bucks because if you riddle them with bullets, you’ll be left with very little viable meat to sell. Hole-filled meat negatively affects the total sell price, and by extension, your bottom line.
