Probably not triggering, but a herd of sheep are left alone when they are meant to be watched.

Late in the movie, Ennis tries to convince Alma that nothing is going on between him and Jack, and that she doesn’t know what she is talking about.

Not necessarily, but one main character as a child was forced by his father to see a dead man's mutilated body to show him what happens to gay men.

There's a scene when they shoot a moose and are later shown eating it's meat. A sheep is graphically shown dead in a field, with it's insides ripped apart (on full screen for a few seconds). There are coyote furs decorating a part of their cite.

Ennis mentions this happening while telling the story of what happened to a local gay man when he was a child. During a flashback, you see the man’s corpse from far away with bloodstains around the crotch of his pants. The actual injury is not shown.

Maybe not excessive in terms of frequency, but excessive in terms of severity. There's a sheep whose body was ripped open by a predator. You also see a scene of Jack being murdered pretty brutally.

Perhaps, depending on how sensitive you are. The tent/sex scene is pretty dark and heavy, and quite zoomed in. I mean it's a tent with two full grown men in it, so it's gonna be a little cramped. But there's no sense of panic or distress from the characters due to these conditions, and certainly no actual mention or even symptoms of claustrophobia.

Flashes of something terrible happening pop in and out of a character’s mind with extremely shaky and blurry cam. As a mildly epileptic person, it was not pleasant on the eye.
