It is recommended to use button-only controls and disable the motion contols for aiming when playing Pumpkin Pull.

Using these settings allow you to aim without causing any unintentional movements from the motion controls, making the minigame easier.

How to Use Button and Motion Controls

Aim at the Top Right Corner of Fledge

The easiest way to complete the Pumpkin Pull minigame is to aim your bow at the top right corner towards the fence.

Shoot at the pumpkin just as Fledge crouches down

After positioning yourself, wait for Fledge to crouch down and throw the pumpkin. Fire an arrow just as he crouches down to shoot the pumpkin and score points.

Do Not Waste Arrows

In Pumpkin Pull, your points increase if you shoot multiple pumpkins in a row. However, missing a shot resets the multiplier to zero so be careful when shooting the arrows at the pumpkins.
