Not much more classic American West than hunting a wild bison in the Dakotas!
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

I've no idea how to judge a bison but that looks to me like a huge animal! Congrats, can't wait to hear the story.

I may be extremely jealous and looking into applying for a bison tag.

We tried to get a better look at this bull to age him but he was not cooperative. When they are on the march through the timber it's hard to keep up or get ahead of them and we eventually lost him.

This cow was having a bad horn day. We found a horn from an old cow that she had somehow knocked off, not often you find a shed bison horn.

The hanging weight of the quarters, actually six pieces because the shoulders were removed so it could cool out faster, was 950 pounds.

Meat turned out great, It hung for two weeks and is excellent table fare. Not nearly as tough as I feared it might be.
