Waterfowl Hunting at The Bison Ranch
Here's what to expect of a waterfowl hunt at The Bison Ranch:
Partially-guided hunting on tens of thousands of acres of private water and crop land.
We provide scouting, recommendations, and decoys. The actual hunting is left to you and your group!
No need to bring decoys; we will supply them.
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.
Opportunity to spend your afternoons hunting for upland game if you limit on waterfowl in the morning. Our sharptail grouse population is very large and the hunting is challenging.
Back at the camp, you'll get to show off your cooking skills in our fully-equipped kitchen (with outdoor gas grill provided). Share your stories in our heated garage while or, if you'd prefer, we'll "guide" you to some colorful local establishments for dinner and drinks.
When applying for a nonresident waterfowl license from the ND Game and Fish choose ZONE 1 CONCURRENT WITH ZONE 3.

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! The duck breeding index has been record-setting the past few years. Our habitat nurture every kind of duck you can think of: gadwalls, pintails, redheads, widgeons, teal, mallards, and canvasbacks.
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.
