Okay, so in order to get this trophy you need to get the title MARKHOR upon completion. Now, I had already done this on the Xbox 360 version, but after several unsuccessful attempts on the PS3 where I could have sworn blind that I had met the requirements, I did some research online and discovered several requirements I was unaware of.

Okay, so first of all, you will need to capture one of every food item and collect one of every medicinal plant. With the medicinal plants, you only need to collect one of each, just make sure that your inventory of cure items is not full beforehand. If your inventory is full, then you can always injure yourself with a grenade, and purposefully waste the necessary items. As for the food items, you can eat most of these, but there are some 'special' items you should not eat. I don't know if eating them necessarily voids the trophy, but since you get them back after losing all your gear (as long as you captured them beforehand), I wouldn't worry about it. For one 'special' item, I don't know if you get it back from EVA after escaping Grozny Grad, but I think it is possible to get more than one, so you could eat one and keep a second one in reserve. Just remember to be careful. There are three food items that are not required, and those are the Russian Ration, the Instant Noodles, and the R.C. Mate. Here is a full and complete list of all the food items required, with notes detailing which are common, and which are uncommon and only appear in certain areas): -

Snake D - Coral Snake - (Somewhat uncommon, first appears in Chyornyj Prud).
Snake E - Milk Snake - (Somewhat uncommon, first appears in Chyornyj Prud).
Snake F - Green Tree Python (Uncommon. You can find one hanging from a tree in Dremuchij North (Operation Snake Eater) just before you encounter The Boss.

Kenyan Mangrove Crab - (Uncommon, first found in Chyornaya Peschera Cave).
Baltic Hornet's Nest - (Uncommon, can first be found in Dolinovodno (Virtuous Mission).
Hive of Pain's Hornets - (Unique, can only be obtained by equipping a regular hornet's nest during the fight with The Pain, and either letting yourself get swarmed with hornets, or by throwing the nest at The Pain (can be collected after the fight).

Medicinal Plants:
Styptic - (Uncommon, but can be found in potted plants in inside locations such as Graniny Gorki and Groznyj Grad).
Cold Medicine - (Uncommon, but can be found in potted plants in inside locations such as Graniny Gorki and Groznyj Grad).
Disinfectant - (Uncommon, but can be found in potted plants in inside locations such as Graniny Gorki and Groznyj Grad).
Splint - (Uncommon, but can be found in potted plants in inside locations such as Graniny Gorki and Groznyj Grad).

Okay, so those are all the food items and medicinal plants you need to find and capture. As I said, make sure you don't eat the Parrot, or the Tsuchinoko (just in case). As long as you catch both, you will get both back in Tikhogornyj after meeting with EVA. The Parrot will be on a tree somewhere and the Tsuchinoko will be on the ground somewhere right near the waterfall (again, AFTER speaking to EVA). However, getting all these collectibles won't get you the MARKHOR title if these other conditions are not met.

First, DO NOT SHOOT ANY OF THE KEROTANS (GREEN FROG THINGS). Doing so will prevent you from getting the title, and thus void the trophy. Secondly, you cannot get more than 1-2 kills, continues, or alerts. To clarify, that is NOT 1-2 EACH, but, rather, 1-2 COMBINED. Meaning, if you've got two kills and get an alert, you will void the trophy. This run is therefore best attempted on Very Easy, unless you happen to be confident in your MGS skills or happen to be the unequalled master of MGS. I also recommend keeping a checklist of all the collectible items and ticking them off as you find them. Another thing to note is that if you save in area and reload, or if you die and continue, any food item you caught and ate in that area won't necessarily be counted. To be safe, exit any area you have caught an animal or collected a food item, and then save in the next area. The reason for this is because I noticed in other playthroughs that when I reloaded a save, I would sometimes catch an animal I had already caught and ate, but the game would tell me that the taste was unknown. So, be careful about that as well.

So, to recap:
Collect one of every food item (44 in total, including unique/special food items, but NOT including Russian Rations, Instant Noodles, or R.C. Mates).
Collect one of every medicinal plant (4 in total)
Do not shoot any Kerotan.
A maximum of 2 kills, alerts, and continues (COMBINED).

Good luck, and good hunting!
