Then the player must take down a trophy mule deer and must cross a fallen log to get to it. After the player reaches the mule deer, the grizzly bear from earlier attacks. Once the grizzly has been eliminated, the player heads to British Columbia where they are instructed to find hunting guide Dubby McGeath.
