Missions on the Medved Taiga National Park are provided by the reserve warden Alena Khasavovna. Currently, the reserve has 82 missions: 32 main missions and 50 side missions.

WELCOME TO SIBERIA
Welcome to Siberia! You have been hired as a hunter for a cross-disciplinary expedition to study the effects of climate change in Medved-Taiga National Park. Track down and harvest your first animal.
* Locate a track.
* Shoot an animal.
* Harvest an animal.
GETTING A LAY OF THE LAND
If you want to get your bearings, there are lookout points spread out all over the reserve. Scale your first one.
* Visit a lookout point.
STOCKING UP
Be sure to stop by one of the outposts. They're essentially base camps. Claim your first one.
* Visit an outpost.
SUPPLIES FOR GUNTHER
Gunther Baden is the photographer for the expedition. He's set up a number of camps throughout the area to document the effects of climate change in the region. Alena hasn't heard from him in a week, but his last message said he was low on food.
* Harvest an animal.
TAIGA MEETUP
Alena is worried about Gunther. His last communication was over a week ago before a big blizzard hit the region. He has several camps around the region. Head to his last known location and search for Gunther.
* Head to Gunther's camp.
* Travel to Gunther's Camp.
* Look for evidence of Gunther's whereabouts .
* Follow Gunther's tracks.
THE WOUNDED ONE
It looks like Gunther has moved to another campsite. He left his food uncovered, and bears have stolen it all. Journey over to the camp and see if you can locate him.
Try to find Gunther.
* Travel to Gunther's second campsite.
* Look for evidence of Gunther's whereabouts .
* Harvest the wounded reindeer.
TRACKING GUNTHER
Gunther left a note: he managed to find a dead musk deer and has been able to stave off his hunger for now. He's headed back to the base camp, but he's terribly sick. If he's nearby, he might need your help. Follow his tracks and see if you can catch up with him.
* Search for Gunther.
* Follow Gunther's tracks.
* Search for Gunther.
* Read Gunther's note.
ANTHRAX ALERT
There are water monitoring sites scattered throughout this region. Our biologist, Anatoly Barnyashev, wants you to check on those to make sure this anthrax contamination didn't spread.
* Check in on the first of three weather stations in the region.
* Check in on the second of three weather stations in the region.
* Check in on the last weather station in the region.
BOAR HARVEST
Nenets report wild boar in the area marked on your Huntermate. They overgrazed the land to the west and now they're migrating here. Unfortunately, they'll disrupt the musk deer's grazing and attract hungry lynxes. Thin the boar pack down by a few heads. That should create enough pressure to push them back home.
* Travel to the region marked on your map.
* Harvest 2 wild boars.
SOUTHBOUND AND DOWN
The expedition got off to a strange start, but now Alena wants to continue to investigate the thawing permafrost crater. Go check in on the outpost west of Vorota v podzemnyy mir, a.k.a. the Gateway to the Underworld.
* Travel to the P'yanaya Tayga Western Outpost.
CHUCHUNYA FIGNYA
The Gateway attracts many visitors, but not all of them are welcome. Some of the Nenets traveling through your area have reported their food being stolen. Very unusual, especially in winter. Can you see if this is an animal problem? Like a wayward lynx? Hungry brown bear?
* Search the area for evidence of a predator.
CHASING CHUCHUNYA
Is someone playing a joke? Chuchunya tracks have been found around the P'yanaya Taiga Western Outpost! Keep tracking "Bigfoot," but if you encounter poachers or pranksters, do NOT engage them.
* Search for evidence of the Chuchunya in the area marked on your map.
LOCAL WEATHER REPORT
Search for evidence of the Chuchunya in the area marked on your map.The Chuchunya's trail has gone cold, but we've got other work to do. Alena needs you to check on another weather station inside the permafrost crater.
Look in the place marked on your Huntermate.
* Locate the weather station.
* Activate the weather station.
GATEWAY TO THE UNDERWORLD
The Gateway to the Underworld is a popular destination for climatologists and tourists alike when it's not forty-five below. Head to the P'yanaya Taiga Central Outpost.
* Travel to the P'yanaya Tayga Central Outpost.
* Search the area for evidence of the previous expedition team.
THE ELUSIVE LYNX
Lynx migrated to this area many years ago, after some overzealous hunters killed off all the wolves. The wolves moved out, the lynx moved in. It's hard to spot the lynx, but documenting their migration and survival is essential to our research. Nenets have already reported lynx in your area. Find a lynx and photograph it for us.
* (Optional) Spot a lynx.
* Take a photograph of a lynx in Lesnye Lands.
* Harvest a lynx in Lesnye Lands.
THE BOARS ARE BACK IN TOWN
Guess who just got back today? Them wild-eyed boars that had been away rumor has it that boars are invading the Lesnye Lands. Maybe the lynx pushed them there. Maybe the storm. Either way, the area can't sustain them. Create hunting pressure by harvesting a few.
* Travel to Lesnye Lands.
* Harvest 3 boars within the region marked on your map.
NO SUCH THING
Alena has marked another outpost to visit. Stay alert for any sign of Chuchunya. Or, more likely, poachers who want to rob you. We can't conduct a scientific survey while some jokers are out here pretending to be Chuchunya or Bigfoot or whatever.
* Travel to the Kholm Zverolova Eastern Outpost.
* Examine the broken ATV.
* Search the area for footprints.
* Photograph the "Bigfoot" tracks.
* Follow the "Bigfoot" tracks.
MEETING GEORGY GRANKIN
Someone (or something) is vandalizing outposts in the area, and Alena can't conduct a proper scientific survey with these disruptions. Whoever is doing this, we need to warn the locals. The only other person near you is Georgy Grankin. Head to his cabin.
* Travel to the area marked on your map.
* Approach Georgy Grankin's cabin.
* Enter Grankin's cabin.
* Search Grankin's cabin.
* Take a photograph of the fake Bigfoot feet.
* Take Grankin's shotgun.
THE STUMBLING BEAR
The state surveyor's office called me today with reports of a trail of blood in a particular area. Probably a large animal, like a moose or like a bear. See what you can find. Be careful out there.
* Travel to the area marked on your map.
* Harvest the wounded bear.
PACKING PROTEIN
Before Alena send you into Nenets territory, she need you to pack away some substantial meat for the incoming expedition party. Reindeer or moose will do.
* Travel to the area marked on your map.
* Harvest a reindeer or a moose.
BRING YOUR OWN BRIDGE
Alena points out a bridge the Nenets use to safely cross reindeer over the frozen river when there's a thaw. It's broken now though. Fixing this bridge should be an easy task for a survivor like you!
* Travel to the area marked on your map.
* Fix the broken bridge.
A GIFT FOR THE NENETS
Before you leave the Dikiy Coast for the lake, please harvest some meat for the Nenets. Any animal, your choice. EXCEPT for reindeer the Reindeer Herders have enough reindeer.
* Harvest any animal except reindeer.
WALKING THE TAIGA
You're moving along into Nenets country. Nenets can recognize the face of every reindeer in their herd, even among thousands of animals. Their clothing, their food, their tools it all comes from the reindeer. Some reindeer are so sacred, they will never be slaughtered. Alena is excited for you to experience her people and their culture.
* Travel to the area marked on your map.
* Locate the Vetrenyye Plains Western Outpost.
KNOW YOUR REINDEER
This area is along a popular route for the Reindeer Herders Festival. But last year, for the first time, the Nenets had major problems with lynxes and brown bears in this area. The warmer springs led to a surge of vegetation, which led to a surge in small game, and that led to a big increase in large game. Alena has a simple task: get to know these reindeer. Spot them, track them, photograph them, but DO. NOT. SHOOT.
* Travel to the Zhizni Spring.
* Take a photograph of a Nenets' Reindeer.
* (Optional) Examine a track of Nenets' Reindeer.
* (Optional) Spot a Nenets' Reindeer.
HUNTING THE ELUSIVE LYNX
Now that you're acquainted with the reindeer population, let's talk predators. The lynx is a much bigger threat to the reindeer herds than the bears, so the expedition will need to check on the local population. Alena says we need to determine if the lynx is eating a diet of reindeer.
* Travel to the region marked on your HunterMate.
* Harvest a lynx.
THE ANCESTORS' PRAYER
The Nenets migrate hundreds of kilometers across the Yamal peninsula. Sacred sites have served the community for a millenium. Alena wants you to visit one and open your mind. What visions will you have?
* Travel to the region marked on your map.
* Visit the sacred landmark.
* Interact with the sacred landmark.
THE LOST AND FOUND
Locals here in the village are saying there's a radioactive mutant on the loose, which sounds about as credible as Georgy's Chuchunya. But Katerina says something spooked her neighbors' herd last night, and now some Nenets reindeer have gone missing. Maybe another lynx. Maybe something else. Can you try to find a missing reindeer?
* Travel to the area marked on your map.
* Search the area for evidence of the missing Nenets' Reindeer.
* Follow the reindeer tracks.
* Search for evidence of a predator.
* Follow the lynx tracks.
* Search for evidence of an even greater predator.
* Take a photograph of the bear tracks.
* Harvest the wounded reindeer.
DANGER AHEAD
You've cleared every obstacle we've encountered. But take a moment and think, are you ready to hunt a dangerous bear? Do you have the right guns? The right gear? If not, head to an outpost to prepare yourself. If you are equipped and ready, scout for bear tracks nearby.
* Travel to the area marked on your map and search for bear tracks.
* Follow the tracks.
ON HOLLOWED MOUNTAIN
The temperature has dropped over ten degrees in the last few hours, and we've got a stormfront coming in. You need to get to safety before that happens. Look for a campsite in the area and get there before the weather turns against you.
* Travel to Besplodnoye Plateau Eastern Outpost.
THE POISONED LYNX
Georgy reported a lynx behaving very strangely nearby wandering in the daytime, exposing its position unusual behavior for a strategic, nocturnal predator. Georgy is not the most reliable source, but Alena feels this is no hoax. Maybe it's another lynx injured by that bear. Maybe it's another anthrax problem. Have a look.
* Travel to the area marked on your map.
* Spot the sick lynx.
* Take a photo of the sick lynx.
* Harvest the sick lynx.
THE ALBINO BROWN BEAR
You need to get back on the bear hunt, so it's time you understand what you're up against. The locals think that a "radioactive mutant" lives on Pustaya Mountain, but Alena knows what's really up there. An injured albino brown bear has been causing trouble throughout the region. Please help end the Albino's pain.
* Travel to the area marked on your map and enter the cave.
* Harvest the albino brown bear.
ENJOY THE VIEW
Head to the peak of Pustaya Mountain and take in a view of the taiga's beautiful vista.
* Travel to the top of the Besplodnoye Plateau Northern Lookout Point.
