Talk to Tom Dickens
Meet up with Tom Dickens who will show you how to put up a fence, then stands back and watches you work.
- GOLD MEDAL: Fix the first section of fence in 1 minute 30 seconds
First press / to hammer the post into place. Then move over and pick up a rail. Press to raise it to the correct height, then / to place it. Then press until its at the same height on both sides, and finally / again to place it on the other side. Repeat for the next two rails to fix the fence section.
Hammer in the second post to trigger a cinematic montage of you fixing fence sections.
Eventually Tom will call you over to the corral to help out with a stubborn bull.
- GOLD MEDAL: Avoid being hit by the bull
Eventually the bull will start to buck, and break free. Be careful that you don’t get knocked over by it when it does. Chase it down and lasso it.
Initially, either the bull will charge you or drag you along for a ride.
When the bull is turned to face you and tossing its head around, its getting ready to charge. Be sure to dodge out of the way and not get hit.
Go after it and try again until you can get it settled down, usually after a few failed attempts. Once it has been lassoed, press / when prompted to calm it. Don’t get too close until it stops tossing its head.
Keep pressing / until the beast calms down and allows you to lead it.
This will trigger a cinematic to end the mission.
This finishes Farming, for Beginners main mission in Red Dead Redemption 2. Now the next quest Fatherhood, for Beginners starts.
