Rumors are circulating in Annesburg about an unusual buck with completely black fur and unique dark antlers. Like all deer, this buck avoids humans and will flee if disturbed, but beware – the Legendary Shadow Buck is also known to attack when it feels threatened. Poachers, drawn to the creature’s mythical appeal, have set up camps along its tracks. Be careful again as you track down and approach the animal.

All Naturalists can launch this new Sighting Mission by visiting Harriet in her shop.

If you successfully stun the Shadow Buck and collect a monster, you’ll receive a free Vest of your choice as a reward and 100 rounds of Sedative Ammo for your next expedition. Kill and skin the animal and receive 100 rounds of Express Repeater Ammo.

Gus’ shop

Gus Macmillan, a man of few principles, is in a unique position to assist you in your penchant for wearing furs and other hunting trophies. Take the Shadow Buck’s fur to his shop, and unlock the Shadow Coat for purchase. If you decide to make the jacket, you will also receive a free Bandolier of your choice as a reward.

Vitalism Studies

Science is often stranger than fiction. After the recent discovery of a new herb, Harrietum Officinalis, Miss Davenport believes she has found a way to experience the life of a humble Buck. Naturalists who follow all the steps of Harriet’s free Buck Vitalism Studies Pamphlet can discover how to experience a true out-of-body experience, and receive a free Treasure Map as a reward.

Naturalists must be Rank 5 or above to inquire about Harriet’s knowledge of Vitalism Studies.
