With the world as their playground, players will explore a vast expanse of mountains and valleys with unprecedented choices in direction never before seen in a Cabela’s hunting game.

A hunter is nothing without his firearm, which is why Cabela’s Big Game Hunter 2012 offers up the coolest hunting rifles and shotguns available. Players will always have the right gear and they can purchase upgrades, producing visible strengths and weaknesses depending on the situation. Having the best equipment is only part of the equation as players will have to be the best. Advanced shooting techniques such as accounting for wind direction and bullet drop are critical to making the perfect shot.
