buffalo hunt?

Has anyone gone on a buffalo hunt? I'm not interested in a high fence operation, but a "free range" hunt if there is such a thing. I've read that the hunts are usually in December, January, or February so the hide is at its thickest. Other than that, I'm clueless so any help would be appreciated!

Re: buffalo hunt?

I assume you are talking about Bison. Alberta is probably your best bet. Arizona, Montana, Wyoming and Utah have tags but the odds are very bad, probably along the lines of our elk. An arizona tag is over $5000, Utah around 1500, Montana about 450, and Wyoming 2500. Utah has a conservation tag auction in Feb where they auction off a Bison tag. Recent years they went for $12-15K. Just a few years ago when I started looking they were about $5K. The Alberta hunts run around $6-8K. There are a lot of places in western states that offer hunts on very large ranches, low fence.
