Game Introduction

First, you select a wilderness where you want to go hunting: Oneida County Wisconsin, Arkansas Autumn Woodlands, Texas Verde Camp, or Idaho Clearwater National Forest. In each of those wildernesses, the season varies. In Oneida County Wisconsin, the season is Spring; in Arkansas Autumn Woodlands and Texas Verde Camp, the season is Fall; and in Idaho Clearwater National Forest, the season is Winter. Then you will choose your hunting weapon: rifle, shotgun, power bow, or muzzleloader. Next, you will select one of four destinations within the wilderness you selected as your hunting ground. From here, your objective is to shoot and/or kill the male deer (bucks) while trying not to miss or shoot and/or kill female deer (does).

Each hunting ground/wilderness has four areas each with four selectable destinations with a total of 16 hunts.

This game has a voice synthesizer that gives all kinds of different sayings throughout the game. On the beginning of the game when you get to select a wilderness to go hunting, it says "Where should we hunt today?" and then after you have selected where you want to go hunting, it will then say "Which weapon should we take along?" and after you have selected your weapon, you begin your hunting.

The voice synthesizer also gives all kinds of different comments depending on your shooting accuracy throughout the game. Everytime you miss, it will say either "You shot just over the top!" or "Oh, no! I cannot believe you missed!". And everytime you shoot and/or kill a doe, it will say "Oops! Not again!" or "You have got to be kidding me!". But everytime you shoot and/or kill a buck (depending on the size of the buck you have killed), it will say an entire variety of specific comments including "It's too small!", "Now that buck is maybe a year or two old!", "Wow! A four-horn buck!", "That's a small basket rack!", "That's a nice mutton buck!", "Jeez! What a split force!", "Looks like a Christmas tree!", "Wow! A monster buck!", "Wow! There's a monster you do not see everyday!" and "Buck in the sightsy-wightsy!".

When a player finishes the game after completing the hunting season, the voice synthesizer even gives comments to evaluate the player's performance in the game like "You are really the best shooter!", "One-shot Wonder!" and "You are truly a marksman!" for example (which are also displayed on the screen along with the player's other evaluations of his or her performance in the game).

Game Play

When you begin your hunt in the wilderness, you will attempt to shoot and/or kill the male deer with your weapon. You will lose one of your remaining chances if the bucks get away, your weapon runs out of ammunition, or you shoot the female deer (does). If you run out of chances, the game is over, but continuous play is available.

Throughout the game, you will attempt to kill up to four male deer in four different areas within the selected wilderness for a total of up to 16 bucks. Each time you successfully kill a male deer, you are rated based on your scoring, timing and accuracy as well as the weight of the kill. You must try to shoot the bucks in the most vulnerable areas in order to wound and/or kill them instantly.

After you have hunted through all four areas of the wilderness, the season is over and then you are rated on how well you did throughout the game based on scoring, the number of kills, the total weight and the timing and accuracy of your shooting. Afterwards, the game ends, regardless of the results.
