Bass Pro Shops: The Hunt is harder than all previous Xbox 360 hunting games. Unlike previous hunting games, The Hunt does not offer a radar and the animals will not run at you so you can shoot them in the face! The noise you make and your (virtual) body odor really do scare animals away. This game is all about patience and tracking. Animal signs are dotted around the map and they work well to help track down the animal you want. Several animal calls are given to you and you’ll need to use them a lot. Thankfully there are no time restrictions on any of the maps.

All that being said I really enjoyed this game. The graphics are not all that and the ATV can’t handle more than a small hill but I like the map variety and style of gameplay.

Completionist beware, 100% here means beating the minigame Blindfire. To date no one has an online completion of this minigame [only one has it offline].

Child's play - apart from the target practice where they introduce the different weapons to you, you don't even need to kill the animals in this tutorial.

Earn 2000 Reputation in Alaska to complete the Tournament.

Super Easy Reputation in Alaska. At the very start of the level walk forward and look over the fence down into the valley. Walking from left to right on the valley floor is a caribou. Use the x2 scope and kill it for an easy and quick 250 reputation points. Rinse and repeat for a very quick end to this level. BE SURE that you are more than 100 points ahead in the tournament because the first caribou you kill counts in the overall standings.

General notes on reputation:
Reputation is EASY to earned and is done in several ways, some more rewarding than others. The single best way to gain reputation quickly is to kill tournament animals, those you have tags for and non tag 'fair game' such as coyotes, raccoons and rabbits. Levels can be replayed multiple times if needed to quickly gain reputation points.

High scoring reputation
Killing King of Bucks and Legendary animals will gain you approximately 350-650 each.
Finding all exploration landmarks [5] will gain you 200 per level.
Killing 'tag' animals about 200-350 each.
Easy challenges are 50-200 each

Low scoring or too much work required reputation
Hard or frustrating challenges are 50-200 each.
Bow kills are 15 additional each kill
Dying is -50 each time
Killing females and animals you don't have tags for will not lose you reputation but will get you kicked from the level if you do it three times in Arcade and once in Bass Pro mode.

Finish first in the Tournament

Finishing first in the tournament is easy if you pay attention to the target animal in each region. The tournament score is based on the FIRST target animal you kill. Your combined reputation has nothing to do with this achievement. When ever possible use the King of Bucks as your tournament animal, this will ensure maximum points for the days tournament.

Make sure the first target animal you kill is the shown as LARGE on your scope / HUD, or your tournament score will be low. Even though you are competing against 10 other hunters, their individual scores will fluctuate from map to map and beating them over the course of the tournament is easy.

If you make a mistake and kill a small animal, quit out to the dashboard DO NOT quit out through the game menu because it WILL SAVE your progress.

Here are my scores:

New Mexico-----120.13

Bass Pro
Maine -----215.61
New Mexico-----120.31
Totals 1248.15

[This solution was used when playing on both Arcade and Bass Pro Difficulties]

Complete the Tournament in Bass Pro mode

Bass Pro mode is only slightly harder than Arcade.

The call mini games are 8 buttons long (5 in arcade) and you only get 1 warning (3 in arcade) before being kicked from the level.

I did notice that the animals seemed to get spoked earlier when walking towards me, meaning that you'll have to take your shot a bit sooner.

Not knowing what Bass Pro mode was like I played the entire game and got all Kings, legendaries and landmarks on the Arcade setting.

I then did a run through on Bass Pro mode and it was cake - finished it in less than 2 - 2 1/2 hours.

Secret Achievements

25 Instant Kills in Career Mode

Instant kills are one hit kills. Unless you shoot like Yosemite Sam this should come about half-way through your career . Locations can be replayed through the menu, giving you plenty of chance to get this.

Aim for the vitals [head, heart, lungs].

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/zw/St/14CLiGJhbC8wFQQYXFpRGEQyL2FjaC8wL0QAAAAA5+fn+IIE1A ==.jpg Sharp Shooter 50
Score over 1200 points in Indoor Target Range

Big thanks to Lethal Curse for this tip.
You can shoot the small fast moving target in the back and the vitals on the small brown bear in the back multiple times. The small target is +60 each hit and the bear is +15.
Yeah - this in now actually possible!

The targets in the back count for more points, so shoot those as a priority.
[Note: The pattern and number of higher scoring targets is random. I have done this quite a few times now, never missing a target and scored only 835! Unless more of the higher scoring targets pop up this could be tough]

Credit to Tazmad7 for find this first and generously sharing.

The larger animals score higher here, but run all over the place. Stay focused on the big prey, particularly the ones in the far distance [moose on the other side of the river and the bears] that only give you a small timing window to hit them.

Beat BlindFire.

T H I S...I S...H A R D.

There are 10 rounds of 10 waves that you need to complete. You have limited health and increasingly harder animals that are trying to kill you. There is a debate (see below) about the actual number of rounds, but whether it is 3 or 10 I don't think this is possible.

I have seen an email from the developer in response to a disgruntled gamers questions (and rant) about this achievement: Here is what is said:

[I]Thank you for your email. We are very glad that you are enjoying our
game and working so hard to complete all the achievements! You are
right--the Blindfire Achievement is difficult--but not impossible. Yes,
there are 10 rounds. Unfortunately, there are no machine guns.

I can give you some tips that help me get further in Blindfire--that
might help you as well.

-The bears and boars always come in groups of 3 so make sure you see and
take down all 3 before moving on.
-If you notice that you've run out of ammo and you find yourself waiting
for the weapon to reload, instead--try quickly changing your weapon.
When you change your weapon it appears in your hand fully loaded. If you
keep cycling through your weapons you'll never have to wait for the

Thanks for choosing Psyclone!

I had originally been told that there are (3) rounds of (10) waves. I'm not sure which is correct.

Food for thought!

Claim one of each legendary animal in one career.

There are 9 legendary animals [Washington does not have one] and with the help of these videos they should go quickly. With the exception of Ironhead in Wyoming and Wiley in Maine, all of these animals will attack you. You just need to WALK into their territory to provoke them, you do not need to use stealth, but if you ride too close on the ATV they will be scared away. Restart the level if this happens.
