Pelicans are strikingly large sea birds that can be hunted in Horizon Forbidden West. They are very easy to find due to the fact that they stick out when they are roaming along the coast.
Pelicans can only be found on beaches or along the coastline. There are several beaches in the game. You will easily find them on any of the western coastlines. All you have to do is run up and down a beach and you are sure to find one of them. They are huge so it is very easy to see them, they stand out due to their large size.
Hunting Pelicans is very easy. They are hard to miss with any type of arrow. They fly incredibly slow compared to other birds. If you startle one and they try to fly away, it’s a pretty easy moving target to be able to hit. Pelicans are large white birds with even bigger beaks. They mostly waddle along the beach and are probably the one animal that is really going to trigger the feelings of guilt when you kill them. Just walking along the beach, having a good time, minding their own business.
