I think mama deathclaw took 2 or 3 shots. Alpha male took a few more. I did feel kind of bad slaughtering the baby deathclaws, though.
Just a few days ago, I managed to use my tagged sneak + all my points at lvl 2+3 into it, plus a lucky appearance in the general store at goodsprings to get past it to vegas without attracting a horde of deathclaws. well, I did attract one at the end. as soon as I saw one, I stealthboyed and snuck along the opposite side of the pathway all the way to that little train station before one saw me. but I was able to get it to beat up on a group of fiends long enough for me to get away.
On my playthrough I was level 12 or so and I just found spots where I could snipe them without reprisal using a lever-action 357. Used up every bit of ammo I had to bring them down, had to go and restock. Now that I'm level 25+ and have a sniper rifle and anti-materiel rifle they aren't quite so tough.
