Footage from some of my hunts in Deer Hunter 2, developed by Sunstorm Interactive, published by WizardWorks Software in 1998. I do not have the add-ons for the game.
I first played Deer Hunter (original) at a friends house, but really didn't like how limiting it was (only a few weapons, and you couldn't even walk around...)
However many years ago in a shop, I was impressed reading on the back of the box, how much had changed (and the front of the box itself was very nice), as the game was quite cheap I bought it.
I haven't played any of the newer games in the series, even though they seem to have some nice options (like planting your own crops, using vehicles, which unfortunately you couldn't do in Deer Hunter II, although apparently that started with the expansion).
Although there isn't that many things to do in the game, Deer Hunter II did have a good selection of weapons and equipment. It had 12 hunting locations in 4 US States: Washington, Georgia, Michigan & Pennsylvania (even though the locations in each state looked extremely similar). You could hunt in pre-rut, rut & post-rut, and had three times in the day (although unfortunately not in the evening or dawn).
The 2D sprite graphics are very dated to today's standards, however I think the weapons & accessories still look very good. In fact, I think they look better than the blocky polygon weapons in the later series (judging from screenshots). I'm pretty sure they used the same technology for these objects as they did for the weapons in Realms of the Haunting. As the weapons looked and moved fairly similarly (who didn't love the shotgun in that great game).
My favourite weapon is the Black Powder Flintlock (220 grain)
The game also had some other small animals such as foxes and crows.
