The Gore quests are around the middle of low rank, so you’re maybe a quarter of the way through the single player quests. You’re semi-safe positioning yourself underneath and attacking his back legs and tail. He’s most dangerous when he’s in full frenzy mode - when the frenzy virus effects crank up, and the feelers and extra set of legs appear. To de-frenzy him, you need to do a set amount of damage then deal a blow to the head. Pitfall traps are good to use during the frenzy state, as you can get some free shots at his head and maybe break the feelers. It’s worth carrying a pitfall, and the combo parts for 2 more, plus combo books. If you’re using hunting horn, make sure you’ve always got the attack up song active.
