Back in the Mud
You completed Chapter 1.
Just a Scratch
You completed 'Enter, Pursued by a Memory'.
This will be the first achievement you get.
To Greener Pastures
You completed Chapter 2.
You completed Chapter 3.
You completed Chapter 4.
You completed Chapter 5.
Third Time Lucky
You completed 'Goodbye, Dear Friend'.
You completed 'Red Dead Redemption'.
You completed 'A New Jerusalem'.
You completed the Epilogue.
Lending a Hand
You completed all optional Honor story missions.
Best in the West
You attained 100% completion.
You earned 70 Gold Medals in Story missions.
This is definitely easiest to do when you first attempt each mission - if you replay them you don't have your normal collection of tonics/weapons/etc. Ofc the game doesn't reveal the requirements for Gold until after you've completed at least once - but 3rd party mission guides will help with that.
Breaking and Entering
You recovered the stash from 4 homesteads.
Take From the Rich
You robbed or looted $250.
Loot every dead body, this should unlock before you complete the story.
You spent $5000 across all shops.
You completed 10 Stranger mission strands.
There are way more than 10 in the game. You must complete the full quest line for each - not just the first mission. You can still do any/all of these after completing the story.
You crafted 30 unique items in Story Mode.
You should be able to do this in Ch3/Ch4 - just craft one of everything you can. Obviously make sure to buy & pick up (and read, from your satchel) any/all recipes you find.
Grin and Bear it
You survived 18 bear attacks and killed the bear each time in Story Mode.
You have to let the bear attach/maul you first, then fight it off and kill it. A pump action shotgun is pretty handy here, assuming you don't care about pelt quality.
You reached max bonding level with a horse.
Easy enough to get; stay on the same horse, feed it, and pat it while riding with L3 (press in on left stick). Bonding level will increase to level 4 (the max) soon enough. There's time to do this 3 times over on a good playthrough of the game.

Red Dead Online: You played 5 Free Roam Events.
Red Dead Online: You achieved 5 gold belt buckles from awards.

You skinned every species of animal in Story Mode.
There are 178 species. That is a lot. Keep track in the pause menu under Progress -> Compendium -> Animals
You studied every animal across all states in Story Mode.
See also. Use the binoculars. Check in the compendium for 100% progress against each animal.
You played all mini games.
You only need to start a game of each. You don't need to win.
You found the graves of each of your fallen companions.
This can only be done after completing the story, although you can visit some of the graves during the story from Ch4 onwards. See rdr2map.com for locations.
Friends With Benefits
You completed a Companion Activity in each camp.
You must do a companion mission in chapters 2, 3 and 4. They appear as small white mission icons as you progress through each chapter and are to go do things like fishing/robberies/etc with the minor characters.
You discovered the fate of Marko Dragic.
This character gives a set of stranger missions in Ch4, from Saint Denis. They'll be in/around a small building right at the north end of the map. Once the mission chain is complete, return to his building after 24 hours or so to learn the fate, get the achievement, and also a reward item.
Give to the Poor
You donated $250 to the gang tithing box.
Do this before completing chapter 4 - as the tithing box is not available after chapter 4.
You reached maximum or minimum Honor level.
You can't really get this until during/after chapter 5 - because honor is capped until then. Stay positive Honor, so you can be eligible for all the missions needed for
You completed one of the Collectable strands.
You survived for 3 days holding a bounty of $250 in all states.
Best to leave this until afterand - you'll need to rack up a large bounty in each state, and then camp out in the wild and sleep a lot to have the time pass.

You must do this before the end of chapter 4.
You found a permanent home for the squirrel statue.
This can only be done after completing the story.
It was THIS Big!
You caught a fish weighing at least 16 lbs (7.3 kg).
Easiest during Ch4 after you unlock Special lures.
Locked and Loaded
You upgraded each available component for a single sidearm or longarm weapon.
Easy to do from near the beginning of the game in any gunsmith. Just upgrade everything on a pistol or revolver.
