TheHunter: Call of the Wild Wiki

The Brown Bear is a large predator (class 7). It can be hunted at the Medved Taiga National Park. With the Grizzly Bear, another subspecies of brown bear was introduced to the game.


The brown bear is a large bear with very wide distribution. The species can be found across much of Europe, Asia, Alaska and Western Canada. Isolated populations exist in the continental United States. It is one of the two largest carnivores alive today, rivalled in body size only by its close cousin, the polar bear. Brown bears have long, thick fur, that comes in many color variations, which despite the name are not always uniformly brown. A typical male weighs between 195 - 482 kg (430 - 1062 lb), while females are smaller and range between 110 - 340 kg (242 - 749 lb). Hunting brown bears requires patience, stealth and a high degree of marksmanship. Brown bears have great physical strength, a keen sense of smell and are more likely to attack a hunter than their black bear cousin when cornered. Brown bears are omnivores and can be found in most areas, although they do have a particular preference for mountainous terrain partly because of the safety the mountainous areas provide from humans.
