A Legendary Experience
You will love the hospitality,
the camaraderie, the sheer excitement of going back in time to
hunt a legendary animal in a magnificent setting. At The Bison
Ranch, you will find animals running in a vast, beautiful landscape
of rough virgin prairie that looks much like it did 100 years
ago. The challenge will be yours, as bison are not an easy animal
to bring down. This is a unique adventure for you and a friend
or family member!
How do you hunt a bison?
When you hunt a bison, you hunt the herd, for their instincts
are not like a deer or an elk. They are a grouping animal, and
when one runs, the entire herd runs. You won't, however, be walking
up to a herd of bison--thankfully for your sake, that won't happen!
Stalking the herd is a real challenge.
Bowhunters must get within 30 yards to 40 yards, and gun shooters
must get within at least 100 yards to get the shot that is required.
No bison is going to simply allow you to get within those distances
without some grand strategy. You will be waiting for the bison
to come to you, and this requires patience, planning and timing.
When you bring that all together, however, the occasion is momentous
and rewarding--and the reason so many of our hunters return year
We offer two types of buffalo
hunts--meat bull hunts and trophy hunts-- legendary experiences

Bison Ranch can accommodate parties of up to 12. Each member
of groups including more than four hunters will be eligible for

HUNTS include mature bulls only! Thus, they are powerful (upwards
of 2000 lbs.), spirited (they can be downright ugly) and difficult
to bring down (veterans of hunts worldwide often tell us they
seldom encounter an animal so tough).
Our cold North
Dakota winters result in thick, beautiful coats of hair that
you won't find further south. A trophy from The Bison Ranch will
give you a mount you will be proud to put on your wall!
