Default Looking for a bison hunt

My wife recently decided that she wants to find a buffalo hunt, high fence of course. Looking for a decent hunt that doesnít break the bank. Not looking for any record book animals but she would like to kill a decent bull. Has anyone been, any recommendations?

Awesome. She’s never killed anything other than whitetail and pigs. I’m trying to convince her to start with something a little smaller like a nice axis or fallow but I’m not having any luck

The Bison Ranch in North Dakota offers a fun hunt. But, I think they're all booked up for 2018. That's where I got the bison in my avatar.

How many pounds of meat do you end up with?

I wound up with about 350 lbs of meat.

The carcass weight will be about 60% of the live weight. Meat yield will be about 60% of carcass weight. So, a 1000 lb bison X 60% = 600 lb carcass X 60 % = a meat yield of 360 lbs.
