    I'm having the same trouble. I've killed multiple dead bears whilst staning still on pestilence using a torch and it's not making any difference in my challenge menu. Most probably a bug?

  1. On the PS3 it does keep track for you. I found out by accident. go to your journal then X on challenges then triangle on the challenge you want info on. it will give you a running count.

  1. The best way I found was to use the apocolypse horse Death. Stay on the horse (the bear can't kill the horse) and swing the torch at the bear.

  2. One of the Apocalypse horses would be great, if not get a zombie horse, bears take longer to kill them. Once your horse is dead, you're dead meat, unless the bear is almost dead and will go down with 1/2 hits of your torch. The key to this is: USE GUNS to weaken him up! As long as the last blow is with the torch, you still get it. Other things to remember: keep dead eye so if other animals (wolves, cougars etc.) pop up you can kill them quick. Remember who you get! You need 2 bears, 3 cougars, 5 wolves, but the game doesn't tell you what you already killed, so keep track of what's left.

  3. If you've done all the horse challenges and have the blood deed for Pestilence, or just have Pestilence, get that horse because it's the toughest. Then go to the bear-populated area of Tall Trees (go in the daytime so you can see the bears), find a bear, and set it ablaze. Make sure it dies or you won't get the kill. This method also works with the cougars and wolves

  4. @dragone78.... the game will tell you how many of each you have killed. Its in the pause menu. I believe you hit triangle when highlighting the challenge description.

  5. Use the Horse Death but make sure you stand still! Let the bear (and anything else) Attack you just keep swinging the tourch I tried it a few mins ago and it works. Just remember that the Zombies can pull you off so shoot any of them.

  6. What I did was simple.If you have the incinicbility cheat,turn it on.Go to Tall Trees.Get off your horse,and equip your torch.When a Bear runs at you hit it and keep hittin it.Bears arent fast, so you dont need to get on your horse just chase him down.This worked with me,and I had 3 bears on me at once!

    P.S.If you dont have the cheat look it up under the Regular RDR Cheats Section.
