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.

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
