Where to hunt Bison
Why hunt Bison? All hunts (12)
At one time, North America’s bison herds were legendary, roaming the continent in incredible numbers from northern Canada to Mexico and across the central plains as far east as what is now North Carolina. Today, an estimated 500,000 American bison (Bison bison) exist on private lands and some 30,000 on public lands. The majority of bison are on ranches or confined by fences, but some 15,000 bison are considered wild and free-ranging, according to the IUCN. Two varieties of American bison are recognized: the plains bison and the wood bison. The wood bison is larger, has a taller, squarish hump, and is the largest land animal in North America. Wood bison may be hunted in Alberta, Northwest Territories, and Yukon. The European bison (Bison bonasus), also called wisent, was once widespread throughout most of Europe but was considered nearly extinct in the wild by the early 20th century. It has since been reintroduced to Poland, Russia, Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Romania, and is also found on estates in other parts of Europe. Somewhat taller than American bison, European bison inhabit forests where they browse on leaves, twigs, and grass.
