    Cabela's Legendary Adventures
    
    Basic Rules:
    
    	1)	Don't shoot big game animals until you have tags for them.
    	2) 	It's open season on bird's and small game! Shoot bird's ONLY!!! 
    		with shotgun.
    	3)	To get tags, look for Challenge Hunts Throughout the region, 
                    Challenge Hunts are marked by animal skulls.
    	4)	Hunter IQ goes up when a Challenge Hunt is completed, Each IQ 
    		cost 100 points.
    	5)	You'll need to raise your Hunter IQ to at least level 3 before you can 
    		find the Legendary Animal.
    	6)	Check your map for you objectives, the tracks you've found and 
    		other vital info.
    
    
    Upgrade Points: Are used to upgrade equipment.
    
    Animals Routine Point 1 upgrade point usually found with lots of tracks in same 
    area. You have to be a level 3 before you can find them. You have find the 
    Legendary Animals tracks in a group of tracks where the animal was resting. 
    They are Orange On Map! Not all Animal Routine Points are active. When you 
    do find a place you might find the Legendary Animal.  Finishing a Challenge 
    Hunt will award you 1 upgrade point. 
    
    (Hint: When the Legendary Animal first appears this is the area where you 
    will usually find him).
    
    (Note: Total 90 upgrade points are needed to upgrade weapons throughout 
     the complete game).
    
    (Cheat: Once you finish one area on region map collecting animal points 
    in that area you can leave and go to next finish it, then reenter one that 
    you already collected from, and continue to collect more upgrade points. 
    Till you feel you have enough or 30 points for first game).
    
    
    Game Points:
    
    The Game Points to raise IQ will stop collecting at level 5. You will still get 
    Hunting Points for the hunt.
         +3	Trracks still glowing, which can be seen easier with Hunter Sense.
       +10	Bird
       +25	Small Game
       +80	Big Game w/tag, (without tag you get a WARNING).
