One of the features of Red Dead Redemption, and also a large part of life in the Old West, is the ability to hunt animals. There are over 30 animals that can be hunted by players in the single player game as well as in multiplayer Free Roam.

It appears that hunting and then selling the meat, fur and other parts will gain you cash in the game.
You can hunt all sorts of animals, from the very small...
...to the very large.
And sometimes, the hunter...
...becomes the hunted!
And you will probably learn the hard way that hunting cougars with only a knife may not be such a good idea.
