Trophy Bison Hunts

We are currently booking our winter 2017-2018 trophy bison hunts.  This year we will have four animals between three and six years of age.  Two trophy bulls in their prime and weighing between 1,800 and 2,200 pounds.  One young bull weighing 1,000 lbs and an open female weighing 1,200 lbs.  Our bison hunts are conducted between November 1 and March 31 while the animal's coats are in their best condition.   

We charge the current USDA market price for hanging carcass weight.  The hanging weight is established at the processor when the hide, head and internals have been removed.  Hanging weight is usually close to 50% of live weight, which we know for each animal.  This allows us to give a close estimation of the end cost of the animal.  For example, a live animal weighing 2,000 lbs will have a hanging weight of about 1,000 lbs.  At the time of this update the USDA market price for a mature bull was $4.22/lb hanging weight, making the animal price $4,220.  Processing fees and shipping arrangements are an additional cost that you will negotiate directly with the meat locker and will vary depending on what cuts and products you request.  We will field dress your animal and transport your animal to the processor.  We can also arrange for taxidermy services if you should require them.

Mode of Operation:
One of our primary requirements for you as a prospective bison hunter is that you be proficient with your weapon and be able to make a clean kill with the first shot.  You will need at least a .30 caliber rifle using 180 grain bullets or larger.  Rifle calibers that will work fine would be 30-06, .338, 300 Win Mag, 45-70, etc.  Experienced bow hunters are also welcome.  The schedule is up to you while you’re here and we will conduct the hunt in any reasonable manner you wish.  After the shot we will help you field dress the animal and transport it to our processing facility in Leoti, KS.  You will make arrangements with Heritage Meats to have your animal processed and shipped according to your specifications.  We can also deliver your head mount to Lori's Taxidermy in Lamar, CO if you should decide to use our recommended taxidermist.  There is a $150 delivery fee to Lamar, CO. 
People are rapidly discovering the deliciously healthy taste of bison / buffalo. Buffalo meat tastes similar to fine beef, with just a slightly sweeter and richer flavor. Bison is naturally flavorful and tender and can be prepared much the same as beef. Publications ranging from Bon Apetit to Sunset magazines are heralding bison as the meat of the future.

Bison falls into the gourmet or specialty meat category at your supermarket or meat market. 
The value of buffalo is not what you pay, but what you get in return. Nutritionally you are getting more protein and nutrients with fewer calories and less fat. Buffalo is a dense meat that tends to satisfy you more while eating less.

Bison are handled as little as possible. They spend their lives on grass, much as they always have, with no time in the feedlot. They are not subjected to questionable drugs, chemicals or hormones. The members of the NBA feel so strongly about this that they have a resolution opposing the use of these substances in the production of Bison for meat.

Research by Dr. M. Marchello at North Dakota State University has shown that the meat from Bison is a highly nutrient dense food because of the proportion of protein, fat, mineral, and fatty acids to its caloric value. Comparisons to other meat sources have also shown that Bison has a greater concentration of iron as well as some of the essential fatty acids necessary for human well being. Readers' Digest magazine has even listed bison as one of the five foods women should eat because of the high iron content.
