FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS        
           
  Is an archery hunt allowed?        
    No, archery hunting is not allowed at this time.      
  What size of gun and ammunition are recommended for a bison hunt?        
    I would suggest a minimum rifle size of a 300 Win Mag with 200 grain bullets or heavier for a management cow or management bull. Should you choose a trophy bull I would suggest a 338 Mag with a 220 grain bullet. The guide(s) will carry a 450 Mag with a 520 grain bullet and/or a 300 Weatherby Mag with a 220 grain bullet and will serve as backup if needed on the hunt.      
  What is the cancellation policy?        
    The 50% deposit provided when you submit your signed hunting agreement will be forfeited unless we are able to re-book up to 14 days priort to the beginning date of service.      
  What months do you offer bison hunts?        
    We begin booking for the hunts in April and May. The hunts begin October 1st and end January 31st. While we do offer hunts October thru January the robes are the best between December and January.      
  What do I get to keep from the bison?        
    You can keep basically everything (i.e head, robe, meat).      
  About how much meat should I expect to have from the processed buffalo?        
    You will receive approximately 600 pounds on a management cow, 1,000 pounds on a management bull and 1,500 pounds on a trophy bull. This is about 60% of the live weight of the animal.
