Ok So I can tame low level things with a traq arrow or dart. I can't even traq tame a lv 20 bronto. Some pointers,advice even a few funny comments to boost morale would be greatly appreciated.

Use Longnecks with traq darts. Don't use anything over 225-250% DMG though, even with tranq arrows. It's good for somethings, like Gigas and such. But it also can kill a lot of other dinos.

Each dino a has a torpor level that must be attained before it will be knocked out. The larger the dino generally the higher the torpor. So a large creature like a bronto will take a lot of tranq arrows or darts depending on the damage level of the weapon.

Here is a list of the torpor amounts each weapon does. Now this is only for primitive weapons. If you weapon does 200% damage then all of these figures would be doubled.

Ammunition
Weapon
Damage
Instant torpor
Over time
Total
Tranquilizer Arrow
Bow
20 40 50 90
Tranquilizer Arrow
Compound Bow
27 54 67.5 121
Tranquilizer Arrow
Crossbow
35 70 87.5 157.5
Tranquilizer Dart
Longneck Rifle
26 156 65 221
Tranq Spear Bolt
Harpoon Launcher
36 216 90 306
Shocking Tranquilizer Dart
Longneck Rifle
26 312 130 442

If you have a primitive crossbow and tranq arrows. A level 30 bronto would take around 35 tranq arrows to bring it down. So, a level 20 should have taken 25 or more to bring down. Also I'm pretty sure head shots make a difference verses body shots. 

Now some dinos lose torpor very rapidly. If you take to long in between shots with theses dinos it will never knock out and eventually die. Having a couple people with you when knocking out a large dino is always best.

Hope this helps!

Is there a way to input the damage % of your weapon on the dododex? I use SACompanion on my tablet. I can change the stats of my weapons on it and see just how many tranqs in should take.

Yes!
Scroll to the tame you want to knock out, scroll down towards the middleish-bottom of the screen and you will see a selection of weapons that shows how much ammo you need. You then can click "Edit Weapons" hovering right above them on the right hand side.

Thanks. Never noticed the edit button. I still like the SACompanion app myself.
