My Gold Scores (Something to aim for).

  • Mirror Lake: 23130. 
  • Evergreen Mountain: 74435.
  • Camino Dorado: 55616.
  • Rimrock Valley: 49130.


  • Make sure difficulty is set to Pro Hunter Difficulty. 
  • Take your time throughout “episodes” as there is no time limit. Plus, when moving slow you get stealth kill bonus +100 and Stealth Movement Bonus +20. 
  • Big Slam’s are key. Before a Big Trophy is hunted make sure you kill one small animal and a bird. It will net you an additional 100 points. 
  • Also, on levels that involve you to make a duck call, use it as many times as you can. 20 points per call. See "Master Quaker.
  • On timed missions, shoot as many varmint as possible.
  • My strategy; Each level has 2 Big Trophy’s. DO NOT RUN until Trophy’s are killed (you will not get stealth bonuses). Kill a varmint then a bird and then slowly crouch near big trophy, call animal with  while you are in cover. As animal begins to approach kill with bow giving you Slam Bonus, Bow Bonus, Stealth Bonus, Heart (or Spine) Bonus, Call Bonus, Close Range Bonus for 600 points plus additional trophy points. Collect gold over trophys dead corpse, complete requirements for objective bonus. Rinse and repeat for 2nd trophy animal.

Hunting for Gold30
Obtain Gold medals in all Hunters Challenge Courses   (1)

  • Practice, Practice, Practice. Most I received Gold on 3rd run through. Become familiar with which animals are in which section so you know whether to have your rifle or shotgun ready.
  • Targets and Perks may also help. Know when to use your perks. Not a good idea to use your spread perk (widens the shotgun spray range) when a rifle section is coming up.
