A season in theHunter is a terminated time span for the Leaderboards. Statistics are kept for every player and every season, listing the personal best scores of each animal as well as the longest shots. At the end of every season the best scores and ranges are added to the Hall of Fame. For every animal a player is listed with the best score as well as the longest shot.
For these hunting seasons there is no fix schedule when a new season starts. 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 between 3 to 9 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.
