2-Creating a Profile

Creating a hunter profile in dh5 is not any more complicated than in the last
deer hunter, just type a new, choose an appearance for your hunter and if you
want put some extra info. The next step to choose a diffulty. Also you can
modifie your hunters appreace to match the season at any time if you go on


3-Difficulty Setting

Just Learning-Easy
This is the easiest setting. The deer and other game animals are more tame,
more reponsive to calls and easier to hunt since you dont have to worry about
cover scent or staying low but at the same time the deer score much less and
have smaller racks(max on this mode is 8 points). Deer are also less resistant
to firearm damage and can be killed with any shot.

Bagged a few-Medium
Quite a step up from the easy mode. Deer and other game will spook easier, so
using scents and staying downwind is more important and so is keeping crouched
down when walking. Deer are more difficult to lure in with calls and decoys.
They are also more resistant to firearm damage so taking just any shot on a
deer wont garenti a kill. The deer are bit bigger(max is 12 points) and score
a lil higher.

Avid Hunter
This is the hardest difficulty in the game but also the most rewarding. Deer
and other animals are really really spooky, dont respond as well to calls and
lures as in the easier difficulties and vital shots are obligatory. In face
is this challenge, the rewards are much greater. The deer have way bigger rack
than other difficultys and record book trophies can be found.


4-Hunt Types

Daily Hunt: The mode where you go on hunt without starting a season.

Tornament Hunt: This type of hunt is kindda like multiplayer except your
                competing again'st bot hunters instead of real ppl. Even thoo
                they just ai bots, you can still lose but you get no rewards so
                its no biggy. Also you can set the limits and time you disire.
		Just remember not to shoot the bot hunters otherwise you'll get
		a 1 min penalty which you cant shoot.

Season Hunt: The hunt where you manage a property and manage your own deer herd.
             When starting a season hunt you must pick a location and then scout
  	     to set stands, food plots and find hotspots. To hunt jsut pick a
	     day on the calender...remember that each day has diffrent weather
	     conditions and firearm restrictions. You can also set the limits
             for the animals you wish to hunt on the property. You can only have
             one virtual season in progress so if you wanna end click on end 
             season. Also when you complete a year, click on end year ti
             progress too the next. More info on virtual season will be in the
             "hunt techniques" section.



 .300 Magnum Bolt Rifle
 One of the most powerful rifles in the game, it has sufficent knock down power
 to kill any animal and dencent range and accuratcy. Its only drawbacks is the
 recoil which is bothersome when trying to shot running deer(or sometimes when
 you miss a shot on a still target) and its very slow rate of fire.

 .308 Bolt Rifle
 The famous millitary sniper gun once again is a usable gun. Has really good
 stoping power and accuratcy but like the .300 Mag, its downsides are its recoil
 and slow reload and action.

 7mm Semi-Auto Rifle
 Of all the rifles in the game, its in my opinion thaa deer slayer. Because its
 a semi the advanges are lil obvious.=P Its only drawback is that it could only
 have 3 bullets in the chamber.

 6mm Bolt Rifle
 A really good marksman rifle for long range shooting. Somewhat similar to the 
 7mm except that its a bolt action which mean slower reload and rate of fire.

 .44 Meg Lever Rifle
 For thoose who want to stick with traditional ol school rifles. While this gun
 is powerful in its own right and is very good for close shots, its very slow
 to reload and same goes with its rate of fire and its not the most accurate

 30-30 Lever Rifle
 Similar to the 44 except its weaker and carrys up to 7 bullets.

 30-06 Semi-Auto Rifle
 Extermly Similar to the 7mm except its a lil weaker.

 30-06 Bolt Rifle
 Another good ol classic, the 30-06 excelles with its accuratcy, range and 
 knockdown power but on the flip side like the other bolt rifles it has
 a slow rate of fire and recoil.

 .280 Bolt Rifle
 A decent all round rifle. It has a lil more power at longer ranges than the
 270 but its also less accurate.

 .270 Bolt Rifle
 Another desent deer rifle for any conditions, it has superb accuratcy and
 minimum recoil, its only drawback is that it lack sufficent knock down power
 for larger animals such as bear and elk.

 .243 Semi Auto Rifle
 If your looking for a fast, accurate rifle this is the one. This is rifle is 
 nearly a perfect long range rifle with its only flaw being its knock down

 .54 Muzzleloader
 For thoose who are looking for a true firearms challenge, look no furthur.
 While this gun is very powerful and accurate, you only get one shot and the
 reload is pretty slow to say the least.

 12GA Pump Shotgun
 The good ol pump is back and has good had ever. Its fast rate of fire, pellet 
 spread and power are good for deer and atacking animals, its drawbacks are its
 limited range and slow reload and recoil.

 12GA Semi Auto Shotgun
 The best selg defence weapon against bears and cougars. Its fast rate of fire,
 shell count and power is superb while its slow reload and range just sucks.

 9mm Pistol
 The only handgun in the game, the 9mm is exellent for close range and defence
 against animals. The 10 round clip, extremly fast reload and rate of fire is 
 what makes. Its limited range and inabilety to add a scope is what breaks it.

 The archery deer slayer is back and still as good. Its accuracy, power and
 being able to have a scope makes this is the best bow to use. But like with
 other bows, you only have one shot.

 Compound Bow
 The machnized moderne bow. Unlike the crossbow you have obviously have no
 scope but you do have pin sights to judge range and its still powerful, fast
 and stealthy meaning you can take multuple shots without spooking deer. The 
 main downsides are slow reloads, one shot and the arrows travel slower and
 your range is more limited to only 50 yards.

 Recurve Bow
 If you want a weapon that will give you the ultimate hunting challenge, this 
 is it. The reason why its so challengeing to hunt with this bow is cuz you
 have no sights what so ever, 1 shot, slow reload, the movement when you draw
 sometimes spooks the animals and your range is even more reduced to only 30
 yards(however some expert shooters can take shots up too 75 yards).

 Having an 8-24x50 zoom with amber lens this is the most usful optic in any
 condition and situation. It also has a range finder for juging distances.

 Spotting Scope
 The ultimate in long distance spotting, the spotting scope is best used
 in areas where you can for more than 300 yards. Like the binocs it has

 8x-16x Scope
 The most zoomable rifle scope in the game. Ideal for long range shooting.

 3x-9x Range Finding Scope
 This mid-power zoom riflescope with built-in laser range-finder takes the
 guess work out of distance estimation.

 6x-12x Range Finding Scope
 This high power range-finding scope is the perfect addition to any of the
 long range rifles. It gives instant distance readouts, as well as high 
 zoom levels.

 4x Scope
 The only rifle scope that you could put on the shotgun and crossbow. It
 dont zoom but it gives you a better sight for better shooting shooting.

 3x-9x Scope
 With a good mid power zoom it the most balenced rifle scope in the game.

d) Attractents

 Rattling Antlers
 A pair of antlers used to attract both bucks and does. Most effective 
 during the late fall to early winter but works in all seasons.

 Grunt Call
 A call used to attract both bucks and does. Works in all seasons.

 Bleat Call
 Another call used to attrack deer. Works all season but most effective in
 the late fall to early winter.

 Rutting buck call
 A another deer call to attract deer. Works best in early fall but works any

 Elk Diaphragm Call
 Use to attract elk works for both sexes.
 Elk Bugle Call
 Use to attract elk works for both sexes.

 Bear Call
 Used to attract bears and also other cougars and wolfs.

 Doe in Heat Scent
 A scent used to attract bucks.

 Buck Urine Scent
 A scent used to attract bucks and does.

 Cover Scent
 Used to cover your scent, its one of the most important item. Be sure
 to use it every 2 mins as it wears off.

 Elk Scent
 A scent used to attract elk.

 Bear Lure
 Used to attract bears and other preditors.

 Used to lure in deer closer. When used with calls and scents, its even
 more effective.

 Use mostly to attract bucks. It works ONLY when you place it on a real
 scrape. On season mode you can make it permanent by placing it on 
 scouting season.

 Corn Seed
 An item used mostly in season mode it can be very useful to plant corn in
 areas where there is none to create new hotspots, it must be planted 
 during the scouting session however.

 Rye Seed
 An item used mostly in season mode it can be very useful to plant rye in
 areas where there is none to create new hotspots, it must be planted 
 during the scouting session however.

 Wheat Seed
 An item used mostly in season mode it can be very useful to plant wheat in
 areas where there is none to create new hotspots, it must be planted 
 during the scouting session however.

 Bear Bait
 A bait used to attract bears.

e) Stands

 Tree Stand
 A stand you can use to get up a tree. It offers more concelment than the
 other stands and the added advantage of not having to worry about the wind.
 However you cant look 360 cuz of the tree and the tree has to be big engouf
 and not too many branches that obtruct your view. On season mode you can
 place it in a good spot before you start the real hunt.

 Ground Blind
 A tent like stand used to concle your self in areas of dense brush or with
 few trees. While its good to keep you hiden on the ground, you have to use
 your cover scent as much as you would when not in a stand and the blind
 windows are pretty small which makes shooting lanes narrow must be planed
 b4 putting it down. On season mode you can place it in a good spot while

 Fonctions similarly to the tree stand just that instade of placeing it on
 trees, you place it on the ground. Also with this you can see nearly all 
 around but your somewhat more exposed. On season mode you can place it in
 a good spot while scouting.

 One of your most important items, it shows you the topographical view of
 the hunting areas and helps you find your way around with a compase or gps.
 If you know an area good engouf you can use to locate hotspots. Also it 
 shows key items such as stands, trucks, ect that are in the hunting area.

 GPS(Global Position System)
 This item is nearly identical to the map except its not as descriptive 
 but however it dose indicate the direction your going. You can place 
 waypoints by pressing z. Theres 3 modes you can access with your gps.
 Longitude/Latitude Mode: shows your cordinates which you can use to 
 pin-point your exact location on the map and hotspots as well.
 Plotter Mode: Shows a locazise map of the area. Here you can zoom in and
 out and place waypoints, the waypoints will appear as a flag. It also
 shows you your vehicels.
 Altitude/time Mode: Shows your elevation above water and current time.

 This item comes pretty usful when playing in season mode. Simply its a
 notebook where you write notes about hotspots. To save text press enter
 otherwise it wont save. Once you saved it, you cannot edit it. If more 
 then 2 pages you can scroll to the next page by clicking on the page curl.
 If wanna delete the text on page click "clear page", if you want to delete
 everything the journal click on "clear book". 

 Deer Permit
 Allows you to hunt deer, without it all deer you take will be labled as
 poached. Each diffrent type of hunt has diffrent limits; season hunt
 you take from 1 to 4 deer depending the bag limit you choose, daily hunt
 is 3 deer and tornament hunt is similar to the daily hunt.
 *For multiplayer the limits are random but bring the permit n'wase.
 With the permit you can both bucks and does, you can take fawns but you
 cant bag them and killing them counts in your limit same goes for dead
 and wounded deer you still havent bagged. Killing and bagging deer
 over the limit will label them as poached in your trophy room. Also
 shooting a deer while its swimming in the water is also illegal.


 Trucks/extended cab truck
 They are the workhorses of deer hunting. They get you to your favorite 
 areas fast and easy....well only if you use the roads and trails that is. 
 Going off road will reduce your trucks speed and going downhills can 
 be quite bumpy.

 The absolute best "vehicle", can get you through any terrain with lil
 effort and dosent spook game as much as the other vehicles.

 ATV's (All Terrain Vehical)
 A really good vehical for accessing remote areas off the roads.

 Works the same as the ATV except that its only avalable in winter hunts.

 Probably the most usful vehicle, it can get you to remote spots that
 cannot access.
*Keep in mind that when using vehicles, you risk spooking game animals much


6-Game Animals

 Whitetail Deer

 is a brownish colored deer with a white throth patch and tail and antlers
 that go forward.

*This animals can attack and kill your hunter if the dangerous animal option
 is on.
**Wolfs are extremly rare and the odds of finding one are very low.


7-Hunting Stratergys

 Spot and Stalk

 This is a methode used mostly for wide open areas. All it simply is is
 just spotting a deer and stalking up to shotting and then shooting it. 
 This technique with a bow considerably more challenging and is possibly
 the most challenging type of hunt with a bow on dh5...especially on

 Still Hunting

 This technique is mostly used in areas that your unfamiliar with or with
 dense cover. It envolves just walking or crawling slowly stopping every
 so often to spot or hear deer or other animals.

 Stand Hunting

 This hunting methode is one of the easiest to do. Just set up any stand 
 you want near a main feeding area or travel route and wait for the deer
 to come...however it could take some time. U can also create new hunting
 apots by planting corn, wheat or rye which makes a awesome stand site.


 One of the oldest hunting techniques in history. Just simply find deer 
 tracks with the describe the sceen key and the old fashioned way the eyes.
 Tracks are not the only sigh deer leave behind, look for deer poop, scrapes
 and fallen antlers. Once you've found a deers trail follow it sthealty and
 while keeping the wind in your face.

 Calling, decoying and scents

 Probably the best way for beigniers in this game to hunt. Go to an area
 that has deer and start calling. Call only sparingly has too much calling
 CAN spook deer as the same thing with using too much scents. When calling,
 decoying and scents are mixed together they are much more effective.


 Baiting is very very similar to decoying except your using food to stimulate
 an animal's hunger. This is a technique mostly used for bears with the bear
 bait but planting corn/wheat/rye is considered as baiting in some places. 

 Blood Trail Tracking
 Not really a hunting technique but it very important is you wound a deer.
 The types of shots that require tracking are grazing, wounded or some times
 lung. Lung shot deer will usally drop within 15 to 20 yards, wounded deer
 will drop within 50 to 100 yards and grazing shot deer will alwase be 
 still alive. First thing to look for when you wound a deer is blood and
 then start following its trail. When tracking a grazed shot deer keep
 in mind that it will much warier than usall so as soon as you see it take
 it down right away.
 *Theres a glitch with the deer death animation where it sometimes gets back
 up and starts running again, to pervent this keep you gun up and be ready
 to shoot if the deer gets back up.
 **Note this glitch has been fixed in the patch.
 Season Mode Stratergy's
 Weapon Restrictions
 Unlike all the other type of hunts, in season mode you can only use
 certain weapon in diffrent seasons. This adds realism to the game and
 extra challenges. 
 Late Summer/Early Fall          Late Fall/Early Winter/LateWinter
 Muzzleloader & bows only        All Sporting arms allowed

 Scouting is simply exploring an area and locating places which animals
 (here in dh5 deer) feed, rest and travel. In dh5 deer use the same feeding
 bedding and trails, its up to you to find them. While seeing deer at the same
 spots may be obivious engouf theres other signes which you must look for
 to find these hotspots. By looking on your map you can find some of these 
 areas where deer are found. Farm fields and orchards are usall feeding areas,
 dense woods and thickets are exellent bedding areas. Keeps in mind that these
 are not found in every map but these are the most common examples. Other areas
 where deer are found are swamps, waterbody's, remote area's accesed only by 
 boat, mountain ranges, gardens near buildings, roads and open fields. The next
 step to scouting is checking out the area first hand. Maps, compase, gps,
 journal and binoculars/spotting scope are essantial. Sevreal signes which
 you may want to look for when checking out a potential hotspot are tracks,
 droppings, well marked deer trails, scrapes and fallen antlers. You can
 also hear the deer walk or run b4 you see them, does will snort when spooked
 while bucks will do a big grunt. Once you found a hotspot, you could put
 up a blind or stand(its a good idea to put one if you hunting with a bow
 or muzzleloader) or attractents to constently keep deer at the spot such 
 as decoy, drip-bag or corn/wheat/rye. Once your done scouting its hunting
 time. Keep in mind that in dh5 all behavor of all four species are the same
 and that other animals such as bear, elk and preditors dont have hotspots.
 *You cannot take any deer in scouting mode.

 Herd Management
 On season mode of dh5 you have the feature of managing your deer herds. To
 most ppl managing a deer herd is just killing as many does as possible in 
 order to have a stable buck to doe ratio, but theres more than just that
 to grow large trophy bucks. However unlike real life you dont have to manage
 preditors since they cant hunt and kill the deer in this game but are a 
 diffrent story lol nor do you have to plant food. The most important aspects
 of deer management in dh5 are buck to doe ratio and genetics. Most players
 of this game have trouble with managing herds so ill give a simple walkthought
 on how to get trophy bucks easy. For this you'll have to scout the map 
 throughly and know the map really well. You will have to find every buck and 
 keep track of their size. During the first 2 years you must try to harvest any
 spike buck you see and fill the rest of your tags with does. In the 3rd to 5th
 years you should watch the growth of small to meduim sized bucks, if you see a
 buck that appears to reach its max size but is small, take it as well as fork
 horns, spikes and does. If you see large bucks that have 8-10 points or more
 leave them be as well as non-typicals as these buck have plenty of trophy
 potential. By year 6 you'll start seeing large trophy bucks, so you'll have
 the decision whather to take them or not, to be sure if the buck is large
 engouf to take, use the decribe the sceen key"/" and if the hunter says he's
 a true trophy, take him by all means same with large non-typical bucks. For
 all the other years continue killing spikes, fork horns, does and true
 * In season mode you cant manage preditors or elk.
 * Mountain lion and wolfs are none game animals and cant be bagged.


8) Choosing a location

When choosing a location theres sevarel factors you may wanna consider such as
weather, time of day and season. After these are all opinional to change, they
can either making hunting easyer(picking winter with clear weather during
midday) or more difficult(early season with rain during evening). 
*Deer are not really affected by change in weather/season/time in dh5
**Theres also an option called Dangerous Animals which you can put on which will
  make it possible for cougars and bears to attack and kill your hunter. It
  happens  very rarely(buy counering one while swimming) but if you do get taken
  out your hunt is ended.

10) Target Ranges

arget ranges or shooting range is the place you can go to sight in
 your weapons. Keep in mind that your items are very limited EVEN thoo
 its an actuall hunting area, the main reason for this is too
 practise your skill without the use of attractents or navigation. To sight
 in your weapon just shoot it at the closes target to see what needs ajusting,
 then by using the arrows on your hunt view you can make the ajustments
 so that the weapon can shoot the way you want it too. The bore button
 reset your sights to defult. Theres 2 types of targets you can practice 
 on; the bulleye types and deer decoy.

 a) SCS Scoring System and qualifications
    The SCS Scoring is a new scoring system similar to the real life B&C
    scoring system. The scoring is divided into 2 category's, antlered game and
    Antlered Game
    Deer and elk are scored by the mesurement of each tine on the antler, the
    length of the main beams, the circomfrence of the antler and the inside
    spread, adding up all mesurements together makes the final score. Theres
    2 category's of trophy scores, typical and non-typical. Non typical
    antlers have lots of abnormal points while prefectly symtrical antlers
    are typical.

    Bears, cougars and wolfs are scored by longest and widest part of the skull
    and 10% bonus off the weight.

    For a trophy to be an SCSS record it must meat the quallifications(score).
    If a trophy dose meet the score it will have a gold SCSS logo beside it
    in the trophy room.

14) Secrets

 A) Rares

 Albino deer are simply a genetic mutation where deer dosent have any pigmation
 resulting in the deer having white fur and pink nose and eyes. Your odds of 
 seeing one are 1 in 1000.

 Demon are the second rarest deer in dh5. It looks like a furless bloody deer.
 Your odds of seeing one are 1 in 10 000.

 Unicorn deer are the rarest of the rare. It looks very similar to the albino
 except for the 1 antler in middle of its head. Your odds of seeing 1 are 
 1 in 100 000.

 *All 4 species of deer in the game can have a possibly of being a rare.
 **Only bucks can be albino, demon and unicorn, not does.
 ***On season hunt its not possible to manage them so if you see 1, bag it asap.

 Without the custom maps the only map you can find wolfs in is Orfonio, ID where
 you have a 1/1000 chance of finding 1.
