Guide to Achieving the Master Huntsman Trophy in Talmberg

This guide provides all the necessary information to earn the Master Huntsman achievement in Kingdom Come: Deliverance. This trophy is awarded for becoming the Master Huntsman in Talmberg. To achieve this, you must make the correct decisions in a couple of side quests:

  1. Hare Hunt – Find Hanekin Hare (a poacher).
  2. Cherchez la Femme – Help Hanekin Hare regain his reputation.

Follow the steps below to earn the Master Huntsman achievement quickly. The walkthroughs for both of the above quests can be found in the chapter dedicated to Talmberg’s side quests.

  • Step 1 – Trigger the Hare Hunt side quest
  • Step 2 – Learn more from Margaret
  • Step 3 – Meet Hanekin Hare and trigger the Cherchez la Femme side quest
  • Step 5 – Become the new Master Huntsman of Talmberg

Step 1 – Trigger the Hare Hunt side quest

The current Master Huntsman, Nicholas, lives on a hill in Talmberg. He will give you the Hare Hunt quest, in which you must find and stop the local poachers.

Step 2 – Learn more from Margaret


The investigation commissioned by Nicholas has several leads to examine. However, to earn the trophy, you only need to investigate the lead linked to the wife of the Master Huntsman – Margaret (picture 1). Ask her about the townsfolk, and you will learn that there’s more going on between her and Hanekin than it seems.

If you can gather enough information, you can accuse her of concealing the truth using persuasion (she has 9 points). You can then ask her to arrange a meeting with Hanekin Hare (picture 2). Choose this option.

Step 3 – Meet Hanekin Hare and trigger the Cherchez la Femme side quest


If you’ve convinced Margaret to help you, a marker will appear on the map northeast of Talmberg, where you can meet Hanekin Hare. Find him and have a conversation (picture 1).

During the meeting with Hanekin Hare, listen to what he has to say and tell him that you believe him (picture 2). This triggers the “Cherchez la Femme” side quest. Go to the place marked on the map, a small mine, to talk to Hanekin about the details of his plan.

Step 4 – Complete the Cherchez la Femme side quest according to Hanekin’s plan

Hare’s plan involves abducting Margaret, the wife of the Master Huntsman. Go to his hut at dusk (after hearing the hunter horn, when Nicholas leaves to go hunting). The estate is guarded by one person, whom you can sneak up on and choke out or defeat in a direct fight.

When it comes to Margaret, you can:

To complete the achievement, there are two options. Firstly, you can stun Margaret and carry her out or secondly, you can try to convince her to leave with you using persuasion or intimidation. It’s recommended to have a Bard’s Potion on hand just in case. After this, return to Hare’s hideout to listen to the rest of the plan. The goal is to force Nicholas to sing the testimony that Hare has prepared. This can be achieved by convincing him with persuasion, intimidation or by beating him (without killing him). The next step is to become the new Master Huntsman of Talmberg. Meet Hare in the new location and Henry will go with him to the Talmberg castle to clear Hare’s name before Lord Divish. If all the right choices have been made, Henry will be named as the new Master Huntsman in Talmberg. Take the offer if you want to complete the achievement.
