Got the E-mail today, Drew another OIL tag.
« on: September 09, 2016, 07:22:56 PM »
I cant believe it. I drew another once in a lifetime tag. South Dakota trophy bison in Custer State Park. Time to dust off the old .338 Win Mag and see if its got another one shot bison kill in it. Most of the Trophy bull hunts are producing Boone & Crocket record book bulls, this should be fun. If it is half as fun of a hunt as my Wyoming wild bison hunt I am stoked to get going.

I got my email from South Dakota today confirming my hunt dates. Looks like a mid December bison hunt will be on my calendar. Time to start firming up plans now.

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.
