Hunting down animals on Yara in Far Cry 6 is an excellent way to obtain their precious resources and turn in for materials that you can take back to your workbench for your weapons. Of course, you’ll be able to find various animals on land, but there are also fish roaming around the many bodies of water on Yara.
