No other animal is more representative of the strength and determination of this Great Country then the American Buffalo! From the massive adults to the frisky calves, Buffalo are intelligent, curious, dignified, and tremendously strong. And the only legal way left to hunt one is on a licensed game preserve.
The mighty Buffalo, now safely retrieved from the brink of extinction, is a living symbol of America's history and hunting heritage. From prehistoric times extending through post-Civil War times, the American Buffalo has been hunted. Once the mainstay of the American Indians, Buffalo are again gracing us with their majesty and bounty. Bounties of nutritious meat, fashion-quality leather, exquisite hair-on robes, decorative skulls, luxurious fleece, and exciting and spiritually fulfilling hunts!
Some people say that a "true and ethical sportsman" would not hunt inside a fence. Yet many naturalist and real outdoorsmen dream of a Trophy Buffalo hunt to surpass any other animal they have ever hunted. And other experienced hunters from across the country who have already harvested their trophy, tell us that the thrill involved in taking down one of these powerful beasts is second to none. And their reverence and respect for the Buffalo was multiplied by the harvesting.
The Medicine Wheel Buffalo Preserve hunts 2 and 3 year old bulls for optimum flavor, tenderness, and impressive mounting qualifications. Hunts are for two days so you and a guest can enjoy the lodge and the tranquility of the surroundings. Though many Bison game preserves have more acres then we do, if you read carefully you will hear words like "released" or "alone" in their information. Our herd has approximately 212 acres of fields, old apple orchards, aspen groves, cedar bogs, and timber growth. Our herd has been raised on our land with strict monitoring of breeding to maintain wild dispositions. We do not try to tame our animals and do not give tours that would familiarize them with humans. We do not drive you to the middle of a mesa and tell you to shoot a naturally culled animal. We do not buy an animal to release on our ground for you to shoot. We hunt pristine trophy quality bulls within our herd, which can be dangerous and exciting.
Buffalo are not timid animals and often display a strong fight response characteristic and are very unpredictable. It might take only hours or it might take days to get the shot required to take one of these magnificent animals down. We want the animal to drop on the spot so no extra adrenaline is circulated. But once the bull is dropped the herd becomes even more agitated and dangerous. Willie Nelson, our breeder bull, and even other mature bulls will actually attack, so we like to have a truck standing by to enter the preserve as soon as the shot is taken. As the largest American mammal, a quality buffalo hunt can be a challenge of a lifetime and the fulfillment of a lifelong dream.
We look forward to having you join us for this unique and memorable experience.
