Harris residence is one place where you can catch Hares, which is one of the most valuable animals in Far Cry 5. It is possible to get $10,000 in every 20 minutes in the game. To visit Harris Residence look on the west of Holland Valley, look on the map below, it is in the mountains. You can use different fast travel points to reach the location. Before you reach you have to gather two Hunting Perks that will increase your chances of making more money. First is Harvest Master, it cost 8 points. If you have this perk instead of one skin from an animal you get two. Second is Journey Pack, it cost 7 points. This will increase your backpack capacity, you can carry more items with you. One additional perk you can get is King of the Jungle that cost 6 points. It will reduce the damage you take while animals attack you.

Take Boomer with you, because the dog will mark prey on your HUD in white, red one is dangerous. If you want a specialist then you can take Jess with you, with her Feral Friendly pack, the animal won’t run away from her. Keep a bow with you, the loot you get changes on the basis of weapons you use. Like if you shoot a Deer you get one skin, but if you kill the animal by bow you get two.

The good point of Harris Residence is there are a lot of animals around. You can expect an Alpha Hare Skin here. Look around the house, near the garage you might spot the hare. There are many spawn points where you can get the Hare. If you use a bow to kill the hare, you get 4 skins. Each cost $350 so you get around $1200 in one kill.

There is Wolverine hunting spot nearby, you spot them easily and you will find a lot of them. Each hunt will reward you with $400 Alpha wolverine skin. Look on the right side of Harris Residence. To get a black bear look on the southeast or northeast side of the horse, there are maximum chances you will spot one and you can loot $300 Bear Skin. Also on the south side of the house, you will see woods, there you can get a lot of Deer. Alpha Deer Skin will worth $300. Towards the northeast side of the house a bit ahead towards the hill you will reach an open field, where you can hunt some Elk. Each Elk skin worth $190.

Look at the map location above, you can find a lot of Bison’s to hunt. Each Bison skin worth around $200. By killing Bison you also get a bait that can be used to call other animals like Bear, Cougar, Wolves, etc. When you are using the baits, use one at a time, throw it and wait back for the animal to appear. Once you kill it, then throw another one.


Carry a sniper all the time, bows are good, but through Sniper you can quietly take down distant animals. Always keep one in your inventory. And try to aim for the head, if you have a good rifle you can kill down an animal in one shot. Rifles are fine when you are shooting down animals who are summoned after throwing baits, you can go near and shoot them. Shotgun and Submachine gun is good to shoot animals nearby.
