* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: The plot of ''Dangerous Hunts 2011'' revolves around a seemingly supernatural force that is able to control predators into attacking humans. It's unclear whether this force is the Kaftar, an even more sinister supernatural force, or some kind of secret scientific weapon developed by the [[{{Lost}} Dharma Initiative]]-like "Project Nightfall".

* ViolationOfCommonSense: ''Dangerous Hunts 2011'' features "Marksman Targets" that the player can shoot throughout the game for bonus XP. In the first stage they're hanging fruit, but in the second they're ''beehives''.

* TestosteronePoisoning: Cole's father in ''Dangerous Hunts 2011'' is an amazing caricature of manliness, with massive amounts of facial hair, derisively referring to his wife with her shopping malls and tofu, and when Cole shoots his first elk, his father has him cut out its heart and ''eat it''.

* {{Sequelitis}} ''Dangerous Hunts'' is, if remembered at all, considered better than the later games. ''Dangerous Hunts 2013'', on the other hand, is considered the least faithful to the original out of all the series. Of course, there are some people who like the later games ''more'' for that exact reason.

Despite the Cabela brand name, the games are not actually hunting simulators, but rather arcade-style shooters. Essentially, they're ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDuty Call of Duty]]'', only the enemies are animals instead of humans. Most games in the series were developed to be playable with a light gun, and feature a combination of first-person shooter and on-rail light gun mechanics.

* FirstInstallmentWeirdness: The first game actually ''is'' a hunting simulator, with management of gear, purchasing of tags, money you had to purchase everything with, enforcement of poaching laws (exceptions are granted when using "self-defense" weapons like pistols and knives), tags being in/out of season, random animal placement, etc. Excluding the Action Zone (a mode that returned in ''Dangerous Hunts 2009''), it feels more like one of the early ''Big Game Hunter'' games than it does its own series. There was a story mode, but it was more of "do specific challenges that you wouldn't do in normal gameplay, like shooting a bear at point-blank instead of far away like a smart person."

* TranquilizerDart: Two missions in ''Dangerous Hunts 2009'' involve tranquilizing animals instead of killing them. The first has you tranquilize four escaped tigers that were supposed to be relocated, and a later one has you tranquilize and put radio collars on Asiatic black bears.
