Update | Registration

Due to the recent change in the commercial model of theHunter Classic, we have had to alter the UHC registration process slightly. Previously, users were asked to confirm the date on which their theHunter membership was due to end. Now that memberships are treated differently, there is a new process.

Now, users will be sent a message on theHunter website from “DocWho”. The message will contain a 6-digit verification code, which must be typed into the UHC registration form. The process is really simple. You first enter your email address, your theHunter username and forum name, along with the other usual questions such as country and timezone, desired password, then you will be asked to enter the verification code. Simply log into your theHunter account and check your messages at this stage, then copy-paste the code into the UHC form.

New users will still be required to verify their email address. This process has not changed. An automated email will be sent with a verification link, which must be clicked. If any users do not receive this email, first check for it in junk and spam folders. Otherwise, please get in touch with support@uhcapps.co.uk as we are aware that some mail providers block the emails.

Thank you, and our apologies for any inconvenience caused to users trying to register in the last couple of days.

Update | Mission Amendment

Test of Strength: Mission #10 (The Island)
The requirements of this mission have been amended so as not to require all 6 animals in the same hunt. Players can now complete this mission using multiple expeditions.

Update | New Season & News

New Season
A new season started this week, which means the theHunter leaderboards have been cleared. Time to get back out there and find some high scoring critters. In the meantime, if you need to check your highest scoring animals (or longest shots) from season 23, you can do so using the UHC Personal Best tool. All data from season 23 is now ready.

Personal Best Tool

If you’re not already a UHC member, please join us. The service is free and always will be, and we offer a range of useful tools and add-ons for theHunter. You can join here.

It has been a while since the last UHC update, for which we apologise, but there are some exciting things in the pipeline which we hope will add even more value to the UHC website.

Timescales are a bit fuzzy at the moment, but the following features are planned for the coming weeks and months:

  • UHC Trophy Room
  • UHC Leaderboards
  • Improved Signature Stats

UHC Trophy Room
It was suggested that we create a page where UHC members can showcase the trophies they win from community competitions. So, that’s what we’re going to do. There will be some work involved to collate all the trophy images so that historic trophies are available on release, but we have some neat ideas for this feature and we hope you will like it when it’s ready.

UHC Leaderboards
They have them on theHunter website, so we figured we’d have our own private leaderboards, with a number of different categories in addition to highest scoring animals. More information will be available soon, but we hope to perhaps introduce bonuses for the members that reach the top of each category.

Improved Signature Stats
In addition to the stats and reporting tools available to members on the UHC website, there are a couple of UHC stats pages which players can view without being a UHC member. Many players already have links to this in their forum signatures. Well, it’s about time it had an update. In addition to adding a bit more information, both on the season and lifetime stats tabs, we plan to make this page nicer, more intuitive, and above all, responsive. This will make it display better on smaller screens and smartphones, but it will also make it look nicer in general, regardless of display size. More information on this coming soon. If you want to access the existing pages in the meantime, just use the URL below and replace “caledonianblues” with your own theHunter username.


That’s all for now. We will try to make updates a bit more regularly in 2019. As always, if you have an idea for the UHC website, or a particular feature you would like to see added, just post a comment in the UHC Apps thread on the official forum. We’re always happy to hear ideas and suggestions.

Update | Lifetime Personal Bests

What is it?
UHC has offered personal best information, broken down by season, for quite some time. It was brought to our attention however, that it would be useful to see personal best information across all seasons, without having to manually pick out the best from each season and compare the data.

This functionality has now been added. On the Personal Bests page, you can now find “All seasons” in the dropdown menu. Selecting this option will take your highest score and longest shot for each animal, across all seasons, and present the information in a single table.

Please note, you must first retrieve the data for all seasons in which you played the game. Once that data has been retrieved (you only need to do it once per season) it will be saved by UHC forever. To do this, simply cycle through each season that you played by selecting the corresponding number from the aforementioned dropdown menu, then click the Retrieve Data button.

Remember, you can filter the content displayed by entering keywords in the search field at the top-right of the table. For example, typing “score whitetail” will filter the results to show only your highest scoring whitetail deer.

Give it a shot. We hope you find this little add-on useful.

Update | Cookies & UHC Referrals

Mmmm, cookies!
Time for a cookie update. No, not those type of cookies I’m afraid.

If you visited the UHC website in the last 24 hours you will have noticed that we added a pop-up notification alerting to the fact that UHC uses cookies to help improve user experience. This is already covered in our privacy policy which you can find here. The members area of the website relies on cookies to function, but only essential cookies which contain no sensitive personal information or any information which can be used to identify you.

As part of the new GDPR legislation, anyone can now request a copy of all information held about them electronically. UHC is no exception to this rule, and therefore if you would like to know more about what information UHC has on record for you, please email dpo@uhcapps.co.uk.

Furthermore, anyone can request that all digital information held on record be deleted. Please note, in the case of UHC, this request would result in the irreversible deletion of your account. If you wish to exercise this right, please email dpo@uhcapps.co.uk.

We take your privacy very seriously and never collect more information that is absolutely necessary to be able to provide the service we offer. Please get in touch if you have any concerns about your privacy.


UHC Referral System
Unfortunately the UHC referral system had a small bug which resulted in some referrals not being paid out. This bug has now been fixed and a script has reviewed and made the appropriate payments for all eligible referrals. In some cases it is not possible to accurately determine whether a referred member had a valid membership at the time of being referred, and where this is true, the referral payment has been made regardless.

If you believe you are missing referral payments, please email support@uhcapps.co.uk with as much information as possible. We apologise sincerely for this issue and any inconvenience caused.

A few changes have been made to the wishlist management page, following some community feedback.

  • Auto-complete dropdown size limited, and vertical scrollbar added
  • Ability to add all tents to wishlist added
  • Wishlist capacity increased from 10 to 20 items


To add all tents to your wishlist in a single submission, search for “all tents” in the dropdown list and select ALL Tents (Incl. Heated) from the list, before clicking the Add to Wishlist button.

Update | Wishlist sales notifications

We have added wishlists to UHC. These are like those found on most other websites. A place for you to add items from theHunter store to your wishlist. “What’s the point?”, you might ask. Well, there are a few reasons for introducing this functionality to UHC. The first and most important reason, is to offer sales notifications whenever an item on your wishlist goes on sale. Other reasons include mainly gifting reasons. From time to time UHC hosts prize draws, and wishlists will allow us to gift wishlist items as prizes. In addition to this, UHC will be starting a new weekly wishlist incentive. More information on that coming in another update, very soon.

How does it work?
Really simple. Log into your UHC account then go to the Toolbox. There, you will find a Your Wishlist option near the bottom. Now you can start adding items to your wishlist. For the time being, wishlists are limited to 10 items. We may review this number depending on feedback.

To begin just start typing in the textbox. Any items matching your entry will be presented in a dropdown list.

When you find the item you’re looking for, left-click on it to select it. You can then either view the item, or add it to your wishlist. To view more information about the item you’ve selected, click the View Item button. This will take you to a page where you can see some basic information about the item, similar to that of the official store page.

From here you can add the item to your wishlist (or remove it if it’s already on your wishlist). You can also view the item in the official store, or you can go back to the main wishlist management page.

To remove an item from your wishlist from the main wishlist management page, click the trash can icon on the corresponding row, as indicated above.

Finally, to share your wishlist with fellow UHC members, click the share (or unshare) toggle switch.


Set Wishlist Sales Notifications
What good is a wishlist if you don’t receive a notification when an item on your wishlist goes on sale, right? Well, you can set your notification preferences under the main UHC account management page. Just click the Account tab on the main menu across the top, then scroll down to Wishlist Item Sales Notifications.

Select your preference from the options:

  • No notifications
  • UHC inbox notifications (an internal UHC message)
  • Email notifications (an automated email from UHC)
  • UHC inbox & email notifications

That’s pretty much all there is to it. Don’t forget to click Update Account Settings when you’ve updated your notification preferences. Then, when an item on your wishlist goes on sale, you will be notified as per your notification preferences.


If you add an item to your wishlist after it has gone on sale, you will not be notified. The item has to be on your wishlist at the point when it goes on sale. Otherwise, it’s your responsibility to check the sales section of the main theHunter store.


View Shared Wishlists
If a UHC member has shared their wishlist, you will be able to view it on the Shared Wishlists page. You can find a link to that in the Toolbox. To share or unshare your own wishlist, remember you can flip the toggle switch on your wishlist management page here.


That’s all for now. Hopefully this feature will be of some use to UHC members.


Please post any questions or concerns here in the forum, thanks.

Another short update.

  • .30-06 Lever Action Rifle (Forest Camo) added
  • “Fuzzy Wuzzy” mission objectives updated due to grey Grizzly Bear fur variation bug in the game

During this time, the UHC website will be intermittently unavailable and will not function correctly. It is our recommendation that you avoid using the website between 01:00 and 03:00 CEST.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
