Great bison meat and memories are our specialties.
Our bison roam on the native grasses of the North Dakota prairie.
We offer meat processing services at our in-house, state-inspected custom exempt butcher shop.
We are a family-owned and operated ranch and hunting outfitter, specializing in bison hunts on the native grasses of the North Dakota prairie since 1997. We pride ourselves on being honest, upright, and experienced while our tried-and-true method of harvest and handling your bison ensures that you take home only the best bison meat.
Because our first and foremost priority is putting the best possible bison meat in your freezer, our bison hunting packages are for prime-eating young bulls and heifers (appx. 18-26 months in age).
While we are a private ranch, our bison are born, raised, and harvested in their natural habitat: the rolling hills of North Dakota prairie, much like their ancestors. Our herd is 100% grass fed, all natural, with no grains, hormones, or antibiotics.
After your shot, our method of bleeding, skinning, dressing, cleaning, hanging, and processing your bison is undertaken with the ultimate goal of putting the best possible meat in your freezer. We offer meat processing at our in-house, state-inspected, on-site butcher shop.
We can also provide recommendations on taxidermists and tanners in the region to get you set up with a shoulder mount, European mount, and/or robe.
In addition to our bison hunts, The Bison Ranch offers duck hunting, coyote hunting, and upland game hunting on thousands of acres of private land featuring very diverse habitats and landscapes. Adding one or more of our combo hunts to your bison hunting package is a great way to experience more of what North Dakota has to offer!
Whether you're a greenhorn or a hunter extraordinaire, The Bison Ranch provides a friendly, warm, and inviting environment that is open to hunters of all ages and abilities. While we don't claim to offer 5-star lodging or fine dining, what you will find at The Bison Ranch is a genuine American experience unlike any other. Our accommodations included with your hunt:
Lodging in our guest cabin, complete with linens, bath, kitchen, and grill.
Use of our wood-heated garage for storing your gear or housing your dog. (This space has also doubled as a party shack for many many years!)
Outdoor game cleaning station for birds, deer, or predators.
Option of having your bison processed in our state-approved butchering facility.
