Description[ | ]

Stags are male deer as shown by their antlers and are commonly found in the Forest biome, but are also found in every other biome except the Wasteland biome. Stags are passive and will try to avoid the player. For some players the Stag can be a difficult target to kill; when they are attacked or alerted to your presence they will run away in a leaping fashion. This can make it hard to hit the Stag with any sort of arrow or gun. It is highly advised to sneak up on a Stag to get in a sneak attack to reduce the amount of shots it will take to kill one. They can also run a very long distance from the player once scared. They are also very difficult to strike with melee attacks due to how fast they are. The female version of the Stag is called a Doe and does not have antlers.

Stags will not drop any loot upon being killed but can be harvested for Raw MeatLeatherAnimal Fat and Bones.

It is recommended to use a Bone KnifeHunting Knife, or Machete when harvesting because it will provide the player with more resources than any other tool or weapon.
