 How to Get Boulder Bone in MHW 

Just walk up to the bone pile and loot it as you would other items. You might want to decide on an order of how to collect the piles, or at the very least how to farm the zones, to optimize your pattern.

Aiming for a circular motion is adivsed. Be sure to also keep an eye on the map itself for any bone icons. Once you've gone through all the bone piles, you can either return to the start point and wait for them to respawn, or exit the map and return so the piles respawn when the map loads.
