Catching Wilson J. McDaniels

This part is a typical Bounty Hunting mission - The Mercies of Knowledge | Side Quests in RDR2 - Side quests - Red Dead Redemption 2 Guide

This part is a typical Bounty Hunting mission. Remember to capture McDaniels alive. Head to the place marked by the game - the railway tracks north from Emerald Ranch. Your destination is the camp presented in the picture above. Eliminate the bandits but remember that you can't kill McDaniels. He is marked with a different icon on the mini-map.

Leave McDaniels for last - The Mercies of Knowledge | Side Quests in RDR2 - Side quests - Red Dead Redemption 2 Guide

Leave McDaniels for last. The best way to catch him is to shoot the man in the leg when he starts escaping (call your horse when your target gets too far away from you). Use lasso to hogtie the man. Stow him on your horse, and head to Saint Denis. On his way, Arthur can be attacked by hostile bounty hunters. Try to shoot them as fast as you can (use the Dead Eye).

Participating in the spectacle

Wait a bit for the new quest marker to appear in Saint Denis. Reach the place and watch the cut-scene that will end this quest.
