One of the key revenue streams in Red Dead Redemption 2 is hunting, and you’re not going to get very far unless you know where to get the best rewards for your hard-fought pelts. Unfortunately, out of all of the merchants in the game, the Trapper is by far the hardest to come by, so much so that you may not even know they exist until later in the game. They offer a reliable way to make some money, a number of extremely handy upgrades plus a suite of weapon equipment and fancy clothing items made out of the poor animals you’ve just killed and degloved.
Seeing as how they love to hide in the middle of nowhere, we thought it best to pin down the Red Dead Redemption 2 Trapper locations, providing a guide you can refer to whenever you need to speak to a scruffy man with a shedload of fur products. Here’s where to find every Trapper in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Saint Denis Trapper
The easiest Trapper to find is in Saint Denis, one of Red Dead Redemption 2’s main cities. Head over to the market on the east side and enter through the gates. The Trapper will be the first merchant on your left, looking typically scruffy amongst the other merchants.
North of Saint Denis and directly west of the Elysian Pool, this Trapper has set up shop in the woods between the V and E of New Hanover, just north of the lettering on the in-game map. Find him and you can sell as much game as your heart desires.
Riggs Station Trapper
If you head west from Bard’s Crossing you will find this Trapper just slightly east of Riggs Station, upon a small hill. Simply scale the hill from a safe track and you’ll find the Trapper’s den. Go forth and sell carcasses, fellow cowboy.
Big Valley Trapper
This particular Trapper is well and truly out in the sticks. Fast travel to Strawberry and then head north west. Follow the road past Lake Owanjila and you’ll find the Trapper in the woods near to the edge of the map.
Tall Trees Trapper
Southwest of Manzanita Post, head just west of the ‘S’ in Tall Trees to find this particular Trapper. He’s just by the Lower Montana River on the right hand side of the road in a little woodland outcrop, ready to offer Arthur his wares.
