Last night I got out my Cabela’s Big Game Hunter for the Wii and started playing it.  I started with some target practice.  It starts you out with easier targets and they get harder and harder.  You can shoot all kinds of geese and ducks and then it moves you to rabbits and deer before you start getting attacked by mountain lions and bear!  It’s very addictive and fun!

Finally, once I had the controls down and was confident about my shooting abilities, I moved on to the hunts.  Again… the first hunt is simple and walks you though all of the controls which it actually does a very nice job of.  Each hunt consists of hunting for several animals.  And then there are a dozen different hunts that get more and more difficult.

I’m don’t play video games very often.  I’d rather spend my time doing something a bit more useful.  But I will have to admit that Cabela’s Big Game Hunter is a surprisingly fun game and a bit addictive.  If you like hunting you’re going to like this game.  I had a great time playing it and highly recommend it.

Happy Hunting!

shooting 01When it comes to learning, games and interactive media are wonderful!  Computers and the internet have made learning many new things fun rather than grueling.  Hunting education and safety are now easier than ever as well as fun!

When hunting, we tend to get excited when we have an animal in our sights.  But just because they’re in your sights doesn’t mean you should pull the trigger.  When IS the correct time to pull the trigger?  What is a good angle and what is a bad angle?  If you pull the trigger, is the animal going to fall down dead because it was a good shot, or is it going to run away hurt?

The interactive game, Shoot or Don’t Shoot, is a good way to learn if you should shoot or not shoot a deer depending on the angle it is at or what is between you and the deer.  Brought to you buy the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, this is a wonderful interactive learning exercise that is very educational and useable.

Shoot or Don’t Shoot
