I'm in Cool Ranch trying to look for Captian Blood's lair so I need Tonka the Bison to help me get there but he's been taken by the Duck of Death. So I have to help two totems and so far got Sister Snake and Brother Owl all there is left is Brother Wolf. To summmon him I need to defeat 8 Striped Bumbaloon but they are really hard to kill. All I need is a good way to defeat them without losing.
You will not be able to use a trap on them. They are flying creatures and as such, fly over the trap.
The whole problem may be that you are a little low level for this quest due to skipping all the side quest. If that is the case, go do side quests. If you do the side quests, it may be that you havent level your companions up as needed to combat him. Spend a few points to get your companions up to at least where they get a level per point. If your low level, you might also go to where you spend 2 points per level. That raises them closer to your level... giving them more hit points and damage ability.
