This page contains a description of the Bounty Hunting mission in which you need to catch Benedict Allbright. Finding and getting him into the Valentine jail is part of Good, Honest, Snake Oil main mission. Our walkthrough has information on Benedict Allbright's whereabouts. Here, you can also learn how to catch him.
This is probably the first Bounty Hunting mission that you will do in the game. Meet with Malloy, the Valentine sheriff. Go to the Valentine jail. The man gives you task to catch Benedict Allbright. The man must be brought here alive.
Head north, towards the valley that goes along the Dakota river. Choose the narrow path - it will lead you to Allbright's camp (presented in the picture above).
You now have to pull Benedict so he won't fall into water. Move the left analog stick up and keep pressing the lift button to help the man. Repeat this sequence.
Even after successful rescue, Allbright will still jump into water. Chase him down the river - you will cross the river on the horse at least once. Use your lasso to catch Allbright. Pull him towards Arthur, hogtie Benedict and stow him on the horse. If you want to, you can also search him - Arthur finds a valuable trinket and a Miracle Tonic (regenerates all the cores).
Cross the river where the ground is more shallow - you don't want to drown the bounty. Go back to the jail in Valentine. Carry Allbright into one of the cells, and collect your reward - sadly, you only get $50.
