Default some western I don't know the name of

I'm looking for a western(-like) PC game (altough I may be mistaken by the genre), which I played a bit several years ago. If this 'request' is not in the right place, I will be happy to be informed

If I still remember it correctly, you start the game alone, in some kind of 1st person view. You could travel to different places; when going from one to another the view changed to a 'map view' where a new 'path' would be drawn whilst playing some music.

After arriving in a certain place, you could look around (a bit like standing in the middle of a panorama) and then certain things could be picked up or so. You also had an inventory in which at least a rifle and a knife were available.

Not in particular order:
If I'm correct (again ) one of the first places to come was at some lake where you could shoot ducks.
At another place a man stood with his canoe next to a river; he would sell it to you (for a bear skin?) but you could also shoot him, and then take his canoe.
A third place put you in a dark forest, surrounded by a pack of wolves which would appear during time - there you had to keep turning around, shooting at any 'eyes' that would appear until all wolves were killed.
A fourth place put you all of a sudden face-to-face with a bear. If you tried to shoot him, he would kick the gun out of your hands and kill you next. A friend of mine told me there was a certain way you could kill this bear with your knife, but I never 'solved' this problem.

Any help is appreciated!

Befor I forget: the graphics were quite good, so presumably the game is post-1994

Sounds a bit like The Oregon Trail series.

But did you have to fight animals there, like that pack of wolves I mentioned? I have been looking at the series (now and before), but I'm not sure whether this is the game. Also, I still believe you were alone (not with a wagon and other people).

Can't be Oregon Trail...

What you described sounds like some sort of an RPG game set in the Wild West.

You may be very right with that answer, though it looks older than I remember. I definitely give it a try shortly, thanks!

[edit] I tested it and it really seems to be older. There is nothing like a first-person perspective, and no overview map while travelling. Also, I can remember the rifle had a 'holder' for several bullets, unlike this frontloader with gunpowder.
