Wild bison hunting can be a very exciting. It may be hard to imagine, but not too many hunters in the United States have harvested a bison in the last 100 years so a bison hunt is usually a pretty unique experience for most hunters.
North American bison are large bovines that are similar in size to wild Asiatic water buffalo. Bison are larger than, but not as aggressive as Cape buffalo. A mature male bison can weigh up to 2400 pounds and mature female bison around 900 to 1100 pounds. Like most bovines they have a herd matriarchy. But the climate over most North American bison range requires radically different preparation that the hot climates where African, Asian, and Australian buffalo are usually hunted.
Instead of the burning African plains or the steaming tropics, the North American buffalo hunter is more likely to be dealing with freezing temperatures. Bison are usually hunted during November thru March when their heavy coat is at its best. Global Sporting Safaris bison hunts are located where winter typically means low temperatures, and most often snow.
