A season in theHunter is a terminated time span for the Leaderboards. During a season all shot animals are ranked by scores and shot distances. At the end of every season the highest scores and the longest shots are transferred to the Hall of Fame. For every animal the according player is listed.

There is no fix schedule for when a new season starts nor is there a defined length. A new season usually starts when there is a major update in the game, e.g. a new reserve or animal is added, or a major novelty such as TruRACS or Multiplayer. The shortest season was season 2 which only lasted 23 days. Nowadays a season will usually run somewhere between 3 to 10 months.

Check the Animal Scoring History to see which animal was added in which season.

What they are not

These Seasons have nothing to do with the annual cycle divisions of spring, summer, fall or winter. The reserves are set to fix seasons, e.g. the Hirschfelden reserve is always in Fall season, no matter when you hunt in it.
