Hey, I’m as shocked as you are that this game is as good as it really is. When no one else wants to review a game and it ends up receiving an Editor’s Choice Award, you know it has to be good. After playing Deer Hunt I had the urge to paint myself in camo and rub deer urine all over my body to get back to nature, but my wife wasn’t too keen on the idea. Seriously, Deer Hunt has incredibly deep and challenging gameplay that is coupled with fairly decent visuals and top notch Dolby 5.1 audio. Perhaps now I can understand why hunting appeals to so many people around the world; the thrill of the hunt. With all the overly hyped games out there it is refreshing to see one like Cabela’s Deer Hunt: 2004 Season sneak up on gamers like me on a buck in the Grand Tetons. With a value price tag of $29.99, you’d be hard pressed to find a game more worth the cash. If you love stealth and/or FPS games, then you need to pick up Cabela’s Deer Hunt at least for one season.
Cabela’s hunting titles have been around for a long time, and this port is very well done. There are a few minor problems with the graphics and the controls are a bit suspect at times. This is a game that requires patience, preparation and persistence. Combine those three qualities for a successful hunt in a visually compelling game. This title should appeal to hunting fans of all ages.

Cabela's Deer Hunt 2004 is one of the best hunting games that I have ever played. Thanks to the tracking system and vehicles, it beats out Deer Hunter, except in the online gameplay category. Had Activision added an online gameplay mode, it would have been perfect. Could you imagine playing with your hunting friend from Michigan in Indiana, over the internet with artificial game? I can, and truthfully, I'm not overly excited, but still, it would be a nice feature. If you are a hunter or have an interest in the sport, this year's version, the first for the Xbox, is worthy of a purchase.
