Wii Hunting games

7 posts in this topic

I'm looking at getting a Wii. I have played it some with friends and it is a decent time. I want to get a hunting game.

I really enjoy the Big Buck Hunter Pro arcade game where 2 people can play against each other. Are any of the hunting games like this?

I have been doing some searching and found 3.

North American Hunting Extravaganza- 4 players

Cabela's Dangerous Hunts- 1 player

Cabela's Legendary Adventures- 1 player

Any of them any good? Pros? Cons?

Thanks.

I have Cabela's Dangerous Hunts. It's O.K. I've played it a handful of times, but I still go right back to Tiger Woods and Mario Cart!!!

I maybe just haven't spent enough time on it to get stuff unlocked, but it gets kinda frustrating.

I'm with ya Ryan, probaby the two best games they have for that. The hunting games are OK, but not great IMO.

We've got Cabela's Dangerous Hunts, Cabela's Legendary Adventures and Cabela's Big Game Hunter. My fav is the Big Game Hunter. Between my boyfriend and I we beat it in a week! We've also got the SEGA Bass Fishing one and I can't get him off of it!!

I have Cabelas Big Game Hunter, fun to play.

For a video game it cool, kinda stinks getting killed by a bear when you make a wrong turn on a trail though.

Good to kill(no pun intended) an hour or so for each segment.

I still keep going back to Guitar Hero.

Hate to get off the hunting game subject, but when we first got our Wii I bought that Rapala game and played it once.

"North American Hunting Extravaganza- 4 players"

I got it as a gift, it is not as engaging as I hoped, but I haven't played it much since my first impression. The one good thing is it is emi-realistic in that you move around, and there isn't game constantly jumping out at you to empty your clip on. Not Arcade-y at all. Tough to get a clean hit, and you can take your time to actually aim instead of just letting the lead fly.

Another one I heard of is Deer Drive. From what I've seen, it is about as bad of a representation of deer hunting as it gets. Deer are flying across the whole screen in a certain time limit, and you just drop everything. Even Nintendo's Duck Hunt only let you shoot a couple ducks at a time. It would work fine in a bar setting like the Buck Hunter type games, if that is what you are looking for.

    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).       
    • Any newcomers in the wheelhouse business at the Ice show in St. Paul?
    • Im sure it's hard to see through your Liberal tears.  
    • Well Molly doesn't have any snow on her.   You been drinkin?  
    • 70 pages dealing with Donald Trump and I can't find much that says anything on the positive side, of course in the past year and a half he hasn't said much that's been positive either.
