Where is the Trapper in Red Dead Redemption 2?

Find out the location of the Trapper in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Hunting out in the wilderness and completing Red Dead Redemption 2’s challenges are all fantastic activities that you can quickly lose many an hour to. However, as you dive deeper into the game’s challenges, you’ll begin to hear about the game’s animal Trapper. You'll eventually meet the Trapper as the story naturally progresses, but if you can't wait and wish to know his location right now, then this guide will tell you everything you need to know.

So, who is the Trapper?

The Trapper is a specialist vendor who deals in wild animal pelts. He specifically loves getting his hands on legendary animal pelts which he can use to craft custom items for you. Additionally, if you complete Red Dead Redemption 2’s various challenges, he’ll also reward you with special items. These items give Arthur Morgan different bonuses that can alter his overall effectiveness. Lastly, the Trapper also sells various hunting supplies, so be sure to visit him whenever you’re low on provisions.

Trapper Locations in Red Dead Redemption 2

You will come across the Trapper's main outlet when you reach Saint Denis, which is part of Lemoyne. We previously mentioned this location in our crafting Poison Arrows guide, but it’s also home to Red Dead Redemption 2’s resident Trapper. Saint Denis can be discovered either through exploration or natural story progression, so don’t worry about rushing to find him unless you really want to. However, for those of you that can’t wait, then simply find the paw icon on the map and head right to it.

These other Trappers can be located at stalls set up throughout the wilds of Red Dead Redemption 2's map. Here's where you can find Trappers on the map:

New Hanover Trapper Location

This Trapper is out to the East of Valentine and the Horseshoe Overlook camp. Just West of the Elysian Pool to the North-East of Emerald Station. It's just above the V and the E of NEW HANOVER on the map, is that easier?

West Elizabeth Trapper Locations

On top of the hill to the East of Riggs Station, near Strawberry and directly North of Blackwater. Careful you don't stray too close to the border, you're Wanted Dead or Alive for most of the game's story in Blackwater.

There is another Trapper outpost in West Elizabeth, way out to the West of Blackwater, past the Manzanita Post and just to the West of a settlement called Bear Claw. It's on a hill overlooking the Lower Montana River.

And there is one final Trapper outpost in West Elizabeth, to the North-West of Strawberry, out on the Western border. You can find it by following the river North out of Lake Owanjila.
