The Cabela's franchise is still going strong and sending animals of the wild sprinting for dear life as the destruction, chaos, and sheer firepower of humans comes crashing through the peacefulness of the outdoors once again with the newly announced, Cabela's Big Game Hunter: Pro Hunts.

To add to the thrill of the hunt, four experts who've had their fair share of fun in the field will be assisting players in their upcoming adventure. To be successful in the competitive world of big game hunting, a player must be packing the right knowledge as well as a truck load of weaponry and ammo. The four talented hunters have been recruited to aid the player and make an overall, better, and more realistic experience in the game:

Wade Middleton – Besides being President and co-owner of Careco TV and host of several outdoor television shows, this veteran outdoorsman has worked for over 20 years as a hunting guide and outfitter

Jim Shockey – An award winning outdoor writer, professional big game outfitter and television producer, Jim has hunted in more than 40 countries and has taken nearly 300 SCI-recognised species and is the host and producer of Jim Shockey's Hunting Adventures and Jim Shockey's Uncharted on Outdoor Channel

Ralph & Vicki Cianciarulo – Bringing families together through hunting, America’s Favourite Hunting Couple® is known to educate, entertain and share their experiences through their very own TV show, Archer’s Choice®, featured on Outdoor Channel

All four renowned hunters will impart their unique hunting skills to players through an exciting series of pro-guided hunts against North America’s most cunning and sought-after trophy animals. Additionally, fans will find a richer, more engaging, first-person action experience, including improved ballistic physics, more realistic, thoughtful animal AI and four diversely populated, sweepingly beautiful environments across the continent.
Cabela's upcoming hunt will take players through four breath-taking North American ecosystems, "each made real with dynamic climate conditions, detailed terrain and persistent wildlife". Location, scenery, visuals, and the overall feel to the hunts of the title will, of course, be a key role to how much players enjoy stalking their trophy animals. Game publisher Activision describes the hunting grounds in such gorgeous detail, it's easy to forget for what hunters are really heading to these places:

From the sun-scorched plains of the American Southwest to temperate, eastern woodlands and the cold, damp heights of the Pacific Northwest, each unique environment features expansive locations multiple times larger than those of previous Cabela’s titles. Experience the outdoors like never before on your journey to take down the biggest trophy animals while learning the closely held secrets of some of the sport’s top pros.
Check out the sweet collection of screens showcasing different locations and environments, as well as just a few of the many animals to be seen and hunted in the upcoming game:
