Summary: “Create a custom hunting ground while you stalk, hunt, and harvest trophy animals to gain the most trophy points by the end of a 14 day hunting season. During each turn, hunters place out a map tile and then gain the bonuses from it. Each hunter then takes their turn, spending 2 actions to Move, Scout, Hunt, or Buy. Moving allows the player to move to different tiles to get in range of animals to hunt. While you can shoot father than your range, there is a penalty for taking the long shot. Scouting allows the hunter to look at the face-down animals on a tile within their range, or place a new animal on a tile. Hunting is where you take the dice from your weapon, equipment, and any that you have gained/saved and roll them, hoping to score enough shots to take the animal down. Buying allows you to purchase equipment or even a canine companion from the store, grab some important ammo dice, or turn in a completed trophy card for more trophy points and other bonuses.”
