Deer Hunting Games

There are a whole bunch of deer hunting games that you can play on your Wii, Xbox and so on. The graphics has gotten tremendous over the last 5 years or so but do the games prepare you for the real thing. In a way the answer is yes and no. The excitement of shooting and seeing game is there in the hunting games but there is one thing that's missing in all of them. They're not realistic in the fact that you don't have to play very long and along comes a deer, moose or what have you. In real life there is a lot of waiting and having patience along with knowing where to be at the right time. But this isn't very attractive to a video game now is it.

More realistic would be a game that makes you actually hunt for hours on end in a tree stand shivering from the cold. But how can we make that very appealing when you're playing a game. The satisfaction in a game has to be often and immediate. But for real deer hunters they would be happy with something more realistic in the way of having to stalk slowly and hearing the noise beneath your feet and if you happen to step on a branch there will be a loud crack that runs up your spine. I say loud because that's what you're prey is going to hear and you know it.

It should be that if you make a noise you pay for it by not seeing anything for a few minutes or see the tail end of a deer bounding out of site. And the deer for example shouldn't be bounding towards you like some of the games do. At first you should just see a little tiny movement that makes you blink your eyes a bit to clear them to look again there for movement. Then your movements have to be even more well placed. Like if you have a bunch of dead branches or brush in front of you, you would go around it, not through it. And you should see the odd white moth that catches your eye in the distance. They catch your eye because the white tail of the whitetail deer is something that you first see as they bound away from you.

Personally as a deer hunter that is what I would like to see in a hunting game. But the fact of the matter is for every single hunter that plays games as well there are likely 10-20 kids that want more action and they want it now. And thus this is why you find hunting games with opportunities to see and shoot happening every 10 seconds or so. I suppose that's why they refer to deer, moose and bear for example as 'wild game'.
