Waterfowl Hunting with Bison Ranch Outfitters

Here's what to expect of a waterfowl hunt with Bison Ranch Outfitters:

 

  • Semi-guided hunting on tens of thousands of acres of private water and crop land.

    • We grant access to land, show you around, give recommendations, and provide decoys. We leave the actual hunting to you.

  • No need to bring a boat (most of our potholes do not have adequate access), but you'll want to bring your own chest waders.

  • Dogs welcome.  We have a heated garage with a place for your dog and gear.  (Additional fees may apply for cleaning up after your dog, if necessary).

  • Opportunity to spend your afternoons hunting for upland game if you limit on waterfowl in the morning. 

 

When applying for a nonresident waterfowl license from the ND Game and Fish choose ZONE 1 CONCURRENT WITH ZONE 3.

Email info@thebisonranch.com for rates and more information. Discounts for children to age 18 when accompanied by an adult hunter.

 


The Bison Ranch sits in the midst of the part of the famous Prairie Pothole Region of the Missouri Coteau of North Dakota with the highest density of potholes in the country! 

 

We don't use boats here.  Decoy and pass shooting get the best results.  Steel No. 2 and 4 shot are what you'll need.
