The Hunt for Minecraft 1.7.10 & 1.12.2


Welcome to ‘The Hunt’, a Minecraft mod based on hunting. This mod is still in early stages (alpha), and not all features are implemented yet. It is recommended to use the latest version of the mod, as more bugs will be fixed and more features present.

Please note that the information below has been written for the most recent version of the mod, and therefore features below may be missing for earlier versions.

Quick Overview

The Hunt offers a variety of 3D guns to allow the player to hunt down anything they desire, such as animals, monsters or even players. Survive the Minecraft world in a new way and increase food supplies by using the new deer mob. Trap blocks can be used to immobilise your prey, making them easier to shoot and catch and even poison them.

Exploring the new biome will lead you to new structures and groups of deer. Deer will run from the player and are fast, so it’s best to choose the most suitable weapon for each situation. Structures can provide shelter when exploring and contain some loot, some chests are also hidden containing better loot.

More information can be read below in the ‘Detailed Information’ section.


Installing this mod is the same as installing a standard Minecraft mod.

1). Download and install Minecraft forge for 1.12.2 (files.minecraftforge.net) (built for forge version
2). Download and extract this mod, so that you have the jar file.
3). Drag the jar file into the mods folder of your Minecraft installation. (The mods folder can be found in ‘.minecraft’ after typing ‘%APPDATA%’ in Windows search. You may need to run forge at least once for it to appear or make the folder manually).

Detailed Information
The Hunting Traos

There are two types of traps, a standard trap and a poisonous version. They clamp down mobs that walk on them, and the poisonous applies a poisonous II effect for six seconds. Players will become heavily slowed instead and vulnerable to their predator during this time. A trap can be reused once fired by destroying it with a pickaxe and armed by placing it back down.

Hunting Shotgun
The Hunting Shotgun

The hunting shotgun is a powerful close range weapon. It shoots nine pellets over a wide area as indicated by the custom crosshair shown above, allowing you to hit multiple mobs in one shot. Use the shotgun in either hand, or decimate mobs by dual wielding them. The shotgun uses two types of the shotgun shell ammo, default and incendiary. As the name suggests, incendiary will set your targets on fire.

The pellets have limited range, and will do significantly less damage based on how far away the target is. The shotgun will also destroy glass, ice and melon / pumpkin blocks. This can make it a good tool for breaking ice and harvesting melons.

The shotgun will need a reload after shooting four times, and this is indicated by the shells on the right side of the gun.

The guns have a sprinting animation that changes when dual wielding. Use right click to fire when in one hand, or left click to shoot the left gun when dual wielding. These guns can be used along with other dual wield capable guns.

To reload, right click when the item is fully damaged with the ammo in your inventory. Incendiary ammo will always be prioritised.

Hunting Rifle
The Hunting Rifle

The hunting rifle is a high damage weapon intended for long ranges. This weapon comes with a scope, providing vision across huge distances. Bullets do get affected by gravity, so you will need to aim above your target based on the range.

The rifle can hold four bullets in its magazine before being empty. You can reload as long as you have at least one rifle round in your inventory. The rifle can use standard rifle rounds or the ender rifle rounds.

A standard rifle round can penetrate through mobs and breakable blocks (ice, glass etc.), hitting up to four in one bullet. The ender rifle rounds will work similar to an ender pearl when shot at blocks, or can be used to kill Endermen.

The hunting rifle adds weapon sway to the game. This can be reduced by using the scope, and you have the ability to hold your breath to further reduce this. When scoped, you will see a breath counter at the top of the screen.

The sniper also has some animations. Hold right click to scope in, or release early to perform a ‘quick scope’. Use right click when out of ammo and with rifle rounds in the inventory to reload. The gun may only be used in the main hand, with the other hand empty.

Hunting Revolver
The Hunting Revolver

The hunting revolver is a somewhat powerful revolver for short to medium range. Holding right click will aim the revolver when in one hand. This gun can also be used in both hands, either with another revolver or shotgun.
The revolver holds six bullets before reloading, and can penetrate up to two mobs and blocks. You will need revolver rounds in your inventory to reload, and this gun includes reload animations.
Use this gun like you would for the hunting rifle.

Hunting Knife
Hunting Knife

This is an item that cannot be crafted, you need to find it in dungeon chests, mineshaft chests, the bonus chest or the world generated cabin spawned in the "Hunt" biome. This acts as a fast small sword and can also be thrown.

Throwing the knife will cause it to stick in the wall if it is a soft block (dirt, wood, sand etc.), or bounce off if it is hard (stone, hardened clay). The knife will also bounce off mobs, allowing you to pick it back up. Throwing the knife causes damage to it, which can be repaired in the anvil with iron.

It is made to be used on a dead deer, allowing you to obtain more venison from it. It also is a component in crafting the venison jerky.



The deer is a new mob that will not harm you. Deer do not like player’s presence and will try to run away to avoid being killed. They have a wide range eyesight so will see you easily. They spawn in forests and the ‘Hunt’ biomes. Upon death, they will fall to the ground leaving the body behind. Killing the dead deer will give you venison which can be eaten or better cooked in the furnace. Using a hunting knife on a dead deer will give you more venison.


All bullets are affected by gravity, and can destroy blocks such as glass, ice and gourd. The revolver bullets will penetrate up to two mobs, while the sniper does four. Bullets also have a chance to ricochet off hard blocks like stone. Be careful when shooting as they can bounce off and hit for some serious damage!


Hunt BIome

The Hunt biome contains custom large trees and is full of tall grass and plants for the deer to hide in. Many different types of animals will spawn here, as well as custom structures as shown above. Hunting towers provide a way for the player to see where they are since all the foliage can disorientate the player. Large and rarer cabins provide shelter for the night, or can be made into the main base. They contain food, resources and a hidden chest.

Crafting Recipes
All Crafting Recipes

The configuration file can be found in the standard config file inside your Minecraft directory. In this file, you have the ability to change the weapon damage, turn off structure generation, disable the biome, and adjust ricochet and bullet penetration options.

This mod is at the stage where it should be working on a Minecraft Forge server. The server hasn’t had much testing so if you do find any bugs, please do let me know below. Some third person animations have been disabled for now on the sever to get it to a working state.

Upcoming Information
New Features
As mentioned, this mod still has a lot of features that are currently not implemented. However, I can’t promise these will get added soon. If you have any ideas or improvements, please comment them below. All ideas, feedback and help are welcomed.

Minecraft Version Support
I will try to keep this mod up to date for the latest Minecraft versions. Since I don’t play the game these days, I’m not sure which are the most popular versions for modding. At this point, I don’t think there will be any versions in between 1.7.10 and 1.12.2.

Great mod everything is spectacular but could you maybe add a side by side, double barrel shotgun? It could be similar the Berreta 486 Parallelo It would be cool if you add pheasants and maybe some gundogs too. Overall a great mod.

Keep up with the good work!
