Also, I have a friend (I forgot) that hunts buffalo every year in Wyoming close to Cheyenne. I believe it's 700 bucks for a bull. I can get you that info if you want.

Since Bison is the subject...

this was the talk of the town this week. Its a huge black eye for hunters here in CO.

And before I get pegged as an anti-hunter... please read the article. It's pretty horrible regardless...

Yeah... Seems the buffalo are really just pawns in whatever game is going on over there. As is always the case with our "media"... the hammer is dropped on the heads of "hunters", and once the public scorn has started, the "media" stops coverage right there.

I've been hunting geese since the mid-eighties. It's only been recently that I wanted to branch out and try something else. Any hunter I know wouldn't blast 30+ animals and just leave the carcasses. Period. They would take the limit, and use the remains as much as possible. I got really mad when I was reading this article at the number times "hunter" is tossed about.

Yep, I noticed they used the term "hunter" quite a bit. It obviously was no hunting event and clearly should not have been conveyed as such in the media. That Sheriff should be ashamed of himself if he started that firestorm with his half-witted responses to media questions.

Good to see you branching out. I haven't been goose hunting yet but I love hunting ducks. It'll be good to see how you like pursuing other game (especially hogs)

The article is wrong - that's poaching not hunting. Somebody should correct that right now.


Bison hunting when done legally is a total rush. Especially if you do it with some self imposed challenge like with a muzzle loader or bow and arrow. It definitely takes you into a yester-year style of hunting these colossal beast that represent the Ole west.

Could not agree with you more, Bow Drawn. Even more bothersome is the use of "hunters" to cover the lesser story of the land fued.

These "Media" personelle sensationalize the bland and frankly dull story of that land dispute with the , as you said "poaching" angle, while simultaneously attempting to set off of the "anti-s" deep distain for anything we as hunters do. They then merge the two in order to effect their bottom line and get the payday.
