AC3 Hunters Database Image

Hunting in colonial America was a significant point of contact between settlers and Native Americans and was a fundamental part of both colonial and Native culture.

Hunting was both lucrative and the primary way to procure food in isolated areas. Hunters would roam the vast expanses of the frontier, tracking and hunting game that would in turn yield good profits (at least, if they didn't try to cheat you out of them at the local trading post, which I'm sure never happened.). In fact, the fur trade was one of the main reasons the European settlement of the frontier moved so quickly - pelts were in high demand in England and France.
