Hunting is probably the oldest sports known to mankind. Of course, it wasn’t exactly a sport back then, but some people consider it one now. You may hate it, you may love it, but it doesn’t look like it will be stopping soon. If you don’t want to hunt living things but do like the idea, maybe a hunting video game could provide you the entertainment. Here are some of the best hunting games for Android.
1. Big Hunter[googleplay url=”https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kakarod.bighunter”]
As you can probably tell from the promo video, Big Hunter is not a realistic hunting game. It’s an arcade where you play as the leader of a tribe who is, of course, a hunter. You go out to hunt and bring food to your people using a variety of weapons and tactics. There is a storyline that the devs consider impressive, a leaderboard, and some additional stuff. It can be a fun time killer in short sessions but you won’t be spending a lot of time on it continuously.
2. Wild Hunt[googleplay url=”https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tensquaregames.huntmobile”]
Wild Hunt is one of the best hunting games on Android and that’s one reason it’s also one of the popular ones. It’s also a very realistic take on hunting featuring real locations and real animals. There are a variety of wild animals to hunt in the game. Similarly, the locations in the game feature various maps from various countries. It also adds some extra layers of difficulty such as rain or wind.
Like any free-to-play game, you collect and upgrade your weapons but can pay up to speed up the process instead. PvP or player vs player battle is also a feature of the game.

3. Deer Hunter 2018[googleplay url=”https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.glu.deerhunt16″]
Deer Hunter 2018 is one of the several games by Glu featuring the title. Like Wild Hunt, you get to hunt all kinds of different animals all over the world featured in different locations “from Alaska to Zimbabwe”. The game tries really hard at being as realistic as possible, featuring graphics that are on the better end of the spectrum.
It has Google Play achievements integration so you earn trophies for your hunts. The goal is to hunt the biggest animals you can find. Although, you have to also try and not get hunted yourself. Yes, the game also has predators that would love to hunt you as well which makes it a lot more interesting.
4. Dino Hunter[googleplay url=”https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.glu.dino”]
Real animals are fun and there is a wide variety too but you know what’s more interesting? Dinosaurs. Dino Hunter takes you to the world of Dinosaurs where you can hunt these pre-historic animals. Other than that it’s a typical free-to-play hunting game, a lot like the one mentioned above. You get different kinds of weapons and upgrades in the game to help you be a better hunter.
5. Pokemon Go[googleplay url=”https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nianticlabs.pokemongo”]
Not your typical hunting game and some people might not even consider it a hunting game. But it kind of has all the elements of one, except the killing. You travel the world and hunt down Pokemon, not to kill but catch instead. There’s nothing that you probably not know about the game though. You catch pokemon, participate in battles, and stuff. Although you can’t play it sitting on your couch which makes it a more realistic hunting game than many would want.
