"Hagraven or Horker, it matters not. We've got the arrows to fell any game."

The Drunken Huntsman is a tavern and hunting shop specializing in archery located in the Plains District of Whiterun.

History[edit | edit source]

The owner, Elrindir, explains the store was named after an incident involving him and his brother after they both consumed "rather too much mead" and went out to hunt - his brother mistook him for a deer and shot him in the rear with an arrow.

Elrindir sells a wide assortment of armor and weapons, with an emphasis on bows and arrows, in addition to the tavern's usual fare of food and drink.

Interior[edit | edit source]

The large main trading room is on the ground floor and consists of a counter displaying some wares and several small tables. A large hearth is situated in the center of the room with two cooking pots hung over them. During the day, Olfrid Battle-Born can be seen nearby tending to the spit. Vignar Gray-Mane may also enter sometimes.

To the right is a small alcove where Jenassa, a Dunmer mercenary, can be found sitting. She lodges at the tavern and can be hired for 500 Gold. Adjacent to it is another alcove with a wardrobe and two barrels.

At the back of the room past the large keg is a small bedroom with a chest, a strongbox, and Business Ledger on top of a dresser. In addition, a shelf with several ruined books and a copy of A Dream of Sovngarde can be found. Upstairs is the small master bedroom where Nazeem and his wife Ahlam sleep. Inside is a chest, a wardrobe and two end tables containing generic clutter.

Notable items[edit | edit source]

The Archery skill book, The Black Arrow, Book II, is located on a shelf under the counter.
