Buffalo hunt?

Has anybody done one of these? Thinking about it for this year or next. Found a few places in the Dakotas, Montana, Wyoming that have them.

The spirit of our day is a soft acceptance of everything—except deep conviction in anything.

I've considered it. Utah has tags for wild bison but the odds for a non-resident probably aren't any better than our elk odds. Depending on area a bull is in the 1:500 range and 1:50 for a cow. They also have their conservation tag auction in February and I think in recent years the tags are going in the $15K range. Alberta has the wild Wood Bison, big animals, hunts are about $10K plus travel expenses and getting it home, probably figure close to a total 15K. For a ranch type hunt P Cross Bar in Wyoming has always been considered a top notch hunting outfit.

There are free range, no fence, bison hunts on Kodiak Island that I've seen for around $8,000. No license is required as they are not regulated there like other units in AK. You ride ATV's to the area and then hunt on foot. Nice thing is that you can combo it with blacktail deer, other animals or some duck hunting. Good luck.

I went to Twin Pines in Wyoming about 10 years ago (I hunted antelope on public land while I was there also), the bison hunt was on a large ranch, not penned in. I think the fee was $1,500 for a 2 year old bull back then, but I'm sure the price has doubled by now. It really wasn't much effort, but I wouldn't call it canned either. The meat was excellent, lots of it, and I got a nifty hide & head also. The owners were a little difficult to deal with, so I never went back. I guess they can afford to be independent, they sell out on their animals every year. Twin Pine Ranch buffalo hunts

Catch & release is for guys who don't know how to cook

I've read some about the hunts in Custer State Park in SD. It is a drawing but that odds weren't terrible last time I checked.

I did in 2016. On a 2000 acre ranch in MO It was fenced. I did a lot of checking and most of the places I checked into out west you went home with the head and hide if you wanted it from the animal you killed and they gave you meat they had frozen from precious kills. I didn't care much for that so I chose High Adventure ranch in MO. I took a yearling Bull about a year and 8 or 9 months old because I wanted tender meat. I left with all the meat butchered and vacuum packed and frozen solid and when I got back to PA it was just like when I put it in my cooler. I am down to 9 lbs of ground meat which is delicious. I brought home close to 400 lbs of boned meat.






When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

I did a trophy bull hunt a few years ago. Killed a 10yr old bull that made B&C. The trophy bull hunts are free range, the cow & young bull hunts are behind a fence

How did you find that out beforehand?
