Get ready to git out yo' gun and start blasting Bambi! Emote Games' The Hunter is open now, and the game and social networking site will give thousands of hunting and gaming enthusiasts the opportunity to polish up their shotguns and get to shooting, plus make new pals. It's free to play too; just log on for instant access.
The Hunter combines realistic hunting action -- tracking, spotting and harvesting a variety of animals --with a larger social networking community that gives players the chance to meet other players, post information about themselves and their hunts, receive awards and see scores.
The site will run a variety of contest and promotions and constantly update weapons and game. Right now, "Gunning for Gobblers," a turkey-murder competition, is in effect, but elk season is right on the horizon: The developers have promised to add some of the great animal to the virtual hunting grounds, as well as drop some more powerful guns to take down those big fellas down. Sign up, why don'tcha?
