Planning on a bison hunt?
Read our FAQ dedicated specifically to hunting
What kind of hunting
takes place on the ranch?
We have some of the best waterfowl hunting in the country here.
And in recent years, our sharptail grouse population numbers
have been good. In fact, our sharp-tail grouse population is
a well-kept secret and most are astounded at the opportunity.
Whitetail deer are abundant on our property and there have been
many trophies harvested here. The coyotes have never been more
numerous here, and there is even a great chance you'll even see
them in the daytime. We offer bison hunting Sept. 1 through March
1 and have had hundreds here over the past years who have been
delighted in the adventure.
How long have you been in
We have been conducting hunts on our ranch since 1997.
What comes with a hunting
package at The Bison Ranch?
Hunts include accommodations
in a Hunting House (farmhouse) or Cabin that is located in the
Coteau amidst semi-guided hunting on private land. Our facilities

smokers and a fully-equipped kitchen. Our hunting packages includefull
sit-down breakfasts and all linens, and access to game-cleaning

Where are you located?
We are located 125 miles west of Fargo and 125 miles east of
Bismarck, N. Dak., and 25 miles northwest of Jamestown, on the
prettiest part of the Coteau Ridge, which runs all the way through
South Dakota and North Dakota. The land is rolling and there
is abundant wildlife on it. There are four wildlife refuges in
the area, along with numerous Wildlife Management areas. There

Do you allow children to hunt?

experience mentoring and teaching children the sport of hunting
and takes pride in teaching youth love for the sport.
