The American Bison is commonly known as the American Buffalo. Hunting American bison on the Lonesome Bull Ranch is as close to the buffalo’s natural habitat as you can get, minus the snow. The American Bison are the largest land mammal in north and south America. We have a very large herd of buffalo (over 100 strong) that roams the entire 2600 acres. The meat is good to eat and healthy for you. 

Interesting Buffalo Hunting Information

Bison are large, even-toed ungulates in the genus bison within the subfamily Bovinae. Two extent a six extinct species are recognized of the six extinct species, five become extinct in the quaternary extinction event.

Of the two surviving species, the American bison, B. bison, found only in North America, is the more numerous. Although commonly known as a buffalo in the United States and Canada, it is only distantly related to the true buffalo. The North American species is composed of two subspecies, the Plains bison, B. b. bison, and the wood bison, B. b. athabascae, which is the namesake of Wood Buffalo National Park in Canada.

A third subspecies, the eastern bison (B. b. pennsylvanicus) is no longer considered a valid taxon, being a junior synonym of B. b. bison. References to “woods bison” or “wood bison” from the eastern United States confusingly refer to this subspecies, not B. b. athabascae, which was not found in the region. The European bison, B. bonasus, or wisent, is found in Europe and the Caucasus, reintroduced after being extinct in the wild.

While all bison species are classified in their own genus, they are sometimes bred with domestic cattle (genus Bos) and produce sometimes fertile offspring called beefalo or zubron.
