Cabela's GrandSlam Hunting: North American 29 is a 2000 hunting video game. It is the first game in the GrandSlam series. It was developed by nFusion Interactive LLC and published by Activision in conjunction with hunting supply company, Cabela's

Cabela's Grand Slam Hunting: North American 29 offers virtual hunters a chance to compete for the prestigious Safari Club International's ultimate prize, the Grand Slam Trophy, and is based on an actual tournament sponsored by the organization. The North American 29 is but one of 13 tournaments currently staged worldwide and requires the hunter to visit eight diverse regions across North America and bag 29 different big-game animals to earn the trophy.

Two modes of play offer completely different experiences, though the locales and animals remain the same. The Quick Hunt option provides unlimited time to kill specific animals and earn high scores, and allows you to preset the starting distance from your prey in any given region. The Grand Slam event requires you to harvest at least one of all 29 species within a specific number of seasons. The difficulty level is tied to the number of seasons you choose, and penalties or failure to kill a particular animal found within the region will cost you a season.

The arsenal in North American 29 includes a 12-gauge shotgun, four rifles (.243 small game, .270 all game, 338 big game, and .30-06 pump-action), a recurve bow, and a compound bow. The eight regions cover more than 72 square miles of terrain, and equipment consists of various types of optics, clothing, camping gear, accessories, and ammunition.

United States regions include Alaska (brown bear, Yukon caribou, moose, mountain goat), Wyoming (bison, Rocky Mountain elk, Rocky Mountain Mule deer, Shiras moose), Arizona (Coues deer, Desert Bighorn, Desert Mule Deer, pronghorn), and West Virginia (whitetail deer, black bear). Other locations are British Columbia (mountain caribou, Rocky Mountain Bighorn, Roosevelt elk, Stone sheep), Northwest Territories (Barren-ground caribou, Central Canada moose, Dall sheep, grizzly bear, muskox), the Pacific Northwest (Columbia black deer, cougar, Tule elk), and Newfoundland (Eastern Canada moose, Labrador caribou, Woodland caribou).

A custom map editor is provided for creation of personal hunting territories and theCabela website features an online search engine to view high top scores by hunter name, overall score, hunter name and animal, and animal[2]
