Bass Pro Shops: Trophy Hunter 2007 is another entry in the Bass Pro Shops series that has a plethora of unused content!

Unused Levels

Hmmm...
To do:
Finish documenting the unused levels that are exclusively in the Xbox release.

_MainMenuScene01.nif

TrophyHunter2007 MainMenuScene01.png

A slightly earlier version of the main menu background from the Xbox release. The skybox was originally just going to be foggy instead of having some clouds visible.

NorthCalifornia.nif

TrophyHunter2007 NorthCalifornia.png

Dated February 16, 2006. The level is mostly identical to Iowa, albeit with minor terrain differences. Perhaps the area was planned to represent Northern California, but it got changed for some reason.

UtahWater.nif

TrophyHunter2007 UtahWater.png

An early version of Utah from October 11, 2005. The terrain has quite a few differences, and there are several portions of the map that lack collision.

Unused Graphics

Loading01.bmp

TrophyHunter2007 Loading01.png

A logo for Gander Mountain. Found only in the Xbox release.

GanderMtnSplash01.tga

TrophyHunter2007 GanderMtnSplash01.png

A splash screen for Gander Mountain. It has the file date of October 3, 2005, which makes sense considering the game had a title change.

LOADING.tga

TrophyHunter2007 LOADING.png

A loading screen with a black background. Found only in the Xbox release.

CaliforniaLoadingScreen01.tga

TrophyHunter2007 CaliforniaLoadingScreen01.png

A loading screen for Northern California. The loading text is in a different font and the blurb that describes the area is abesent. Also, the background image is slightly different from what ended up being used for Iowa.

Unused Models

TrophyHunter2007 Truckold.PNG

TruckOld.nif is the original model of the player's truck. It featured branding for a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 but said branding got removed.

Unused Sounds

Announcer Dialogue

Hmmm...
To do:
Document the rest of the announcer dialogue.

The game had an announcer early on in development. His lines were either scrapped entirely or replaced by text boxes.

Audio Transcription Notes
"Welcome to Gander Mountain's Trophy Hunter." This probably would have played during the title screen.
"Please create a new character by pressing the New Career button." There was a New Career button on the main menu where the player could create a character. This was changed to just having the player create their character after pressing the start button.
"Excellent. You can customize many aspects of your character, the way he looks, male or female, age, and statistics. Keep in mind, these statistics will affect your hunting abilities. Choose wisely!"
"You can also randomly create a character if you wish to skip the creation process." The player could randomize their character's attributes, which strangely got cut.
"For instant hunting action, select Quick Hunt from the menu."
"Quick Hunts allow you to step into the action quickly. Some hunting areas, weapons, and equipment may not be available until you've progressed through a portion of the Career Mode."
"Career Mode is a series of hunting trips throughout North America. Your character is perpetual and will gain experience and skills after each successful season." Career Hunt was known as Career Mode at this point in development.
"You can start an official Quick Hunt by checking the official button before selecting a difficulty level." There was an official button that got removed, though it is unclear what it may have toggled.
"The sky is on fire with the morning sunrise. Pink and purple clouds drift slowly high above as you take one last sip of coffee before dawning your hunting vest. A large backpack waits quietly on the floor, hungry for the remaining supplies accompanying you into the mountains. Hunting runs in your blood, your father before you, his father and so on into the depths of history. Your dad's trusty 270 sits locked away in the truck, ready for the coming hunt. You take another sip of coffee, then quickly gather up the rest of your gear and head out the door. The air is crisp and cool. Morning dew settles over everything like a soft blanket woven together from a million tiny stars. Your trusted dog runs behind from a red Dodge Ram, whining in protest of your nearing departure. The sun feels warm on your face as you toss the pack in the back seat. With a final deep breath you close the passenger door, put on your wide brimmed hat, pet your dog reassuringly and step up into the driver's seat. The key slips in smoothly. A quick flick of the wrist is rewarded with a satisfying rumble from a cold engine. You press your foot gently on the accelerator, the truck lurches forward eager to unleash its power. The driveway is short and made of gravel, crunching under the tires as they pass. There is no traffic this early as you turn on to the paved country road. Your dog runs after the truck following to the mail box before sitting on his haunches, whining as you drive away. With a quick wave goodbye your house disappears into the morning fog. Today is your day. Are you ready to be the hunter?" This narration likely would have played after beginning Career Hunt.

Today is your day. Are you ready to be the hunter?" An older variant of the narration from above. It contains an extra ten seconds of dialogue that was likely cut due to the reference of the Dodge Ram. The audio levels are also noticeably quieter than the variant that was supposed to be used.
"Far to the west, the sun sets behind the mountains. The cloudless sky's a brilliant redish orange glow fading off into the encroaching nighttime sky. Stars appear in the east where the deep blue heavens fade into darkness. Your faithful partner sits wagging his tail by the side of the road, waiting patiently for your return. He stands as you turn into the gravel driveway barking excitedly all the way to the porch. You step off of the truck getting down on both knees, giving your dog a great big hug, and a scratch behind his ears before heading into your house. Your cozy cabin is filled with trophies from all your hunting adventures. You feel relaxed, and ready to retire knowing that you are the hunter." This narration likely would have played after finishing Career Hunt.

The folder "Copy of Profiles" is present in the PC release. It contains several save files from September 21, 2006 that are probably from someone who worked on the game.
