In Red Dead Redemption 2 you can hunt various animals. Your character can hunt a squirrel, a rabbit, a turkey, a doe or even a bison. However, this is only a fraction of all the animal species found in RDR2. You can hunt during main missions, side activities or when you are exploring the game's world.
How to start a Hunting Request?
After starting the second chapter of Red Dead Redemption 2, you can find Hunting Requests. They are in post offices or train stations in Valentine, Rhodes, Strawberry, Saint Denis, Van Horn, and Armadillo. A Hunting Request is always the same, regardless of the place in which you found it.
These hunts are part of "A Better World, A New Friend" mission. You have to complete 5 Hunting Requests. Only one request can be active at a time.
To start a Hunting Request, you have to approach a poster and read it. You can focus on the request or leave it after you are done with the main storyline.
Which animals I have to hunt?
This mission consists of five requests. Each one of them requires you to hunt different animals.

How to collect rewards?
To collect money for completing Hunting Requests you have to send carcasses to Mrs. Hobbs via mail. After that, she will send you money.
Complete all requests to receive a letter. Mrs. Hobbs invites you to her house. She will give you a squirrel figurine. Besides that, you will also unlock It's Art trophy.
