I sit here in the middle of February and look out the window at nothing but snow. And this reminds me of buffalo hunting. After all of this time, the thing about buffalo hunts is they can happen in any weather, and at any time of the year. I have hunted them in the middle of summer, and I have ridden back from a hunt in 35 degree below zero weather. I have been on hunts where big bulls were taken, and I have been on hunts where small bulls or cows were taken. But a hunt is a hunt, and all of these hunts were taken by fair chase. A lot of people think hunting them is like shooting cows in a pasture, or “fish in a barrel.” A lot of my hunters have been surprised at the difficulty. Some have not, because with buffalo, as with any wild game, you run into situations where it is easy to stalk and shoot one. That is the thing about hunting them though, they are like any other game. They can be very difficult or very easy to take. They can be taken in warm or cold weather. At the end of the day though, they are hunted just like anything else, and will give you just as big of a thrill.
We are off to a good start with this years buffalo hunts. We’ve taken some great hunters and made lots of buffalo hunting memories with them with mounts and hides off to the taxidermist as reminders. I am always amazed by how much the people love this hunt. I hear almost weekly that this is the best hunt they have ever been on. We have a few more hunts available for this season. Please call if you have any questions. It is a hunt of a life time.
We have a great group for this weeks buffalo hunt with five hunters from Washington state. Three of the group has hunted with us before and loves the adventure of a traditional buffalo hunt in Montana! It started last week with a couple of days of antelope hunting followed by a couple of days of prairie dog shooting. One hunter has enjoyed the prairie dog shooting so much that he ran to town (an hour and a half away) to purchase an AR15 to really get into the action!! This morning they took off for the buffalo hunt. Brad will have stories to share with us when they return.
We still have availability for October, November and December. If you are looking for a real buffalo hunt, one that is Boone and Crockett eligible, contact us!
We’ve been guiding these buffalo hunts in Montana for several years. It’s been a great experience for us to have such a close relationship with the land owners who allow us to host these buffalo hunts in Montana. It’s really a historic adventure every time. This Montana buffalo hunt is the essence of the old west!
