Nate,Can he get a young little bull or cow? I might want to go armed grocery shopping.
MUCHO DINERO !!!!I have no idea what a bison hide with a winter coat would cost to tan. I'll have to ask Breck down in El centro next I see him.
I really hadn't look in CA very much, that's why I was soooo suprised Big Horn had them available. My buddy and I were leaning towards Utah or Colorado. We're looking for a 2009-2010 winter hunt so there's plenty of time. Of course, cheaper and closer is better, as always.Have you guys looked at some of the ranches along the central coast?
I've seen some ranches that have some bison near Las Padres NF. And another plus is there are lots of cattle processors in the area.
If I get a chance I'll ask around. I love bison meat; soooo much better tasting than beef. I get my fix at Cowboy Star in downtown san diego, they have a meat market next to the bar.....too bad it's about 20 bucks a pound.
Most of the ranchers I've communicated with say they're charging the same as if they'd sold it to a slaughter house. They make a few hundred extra on the field dressing quartering.why not just go to a rancher and have them deliver that thing to a local slaughter house? i think this is a much cheaper way to go since this is simply an "arm grocery shopping." Not much of a hunt and a lot of work to get that dead meat into the slaughter house. I saw one with the cows at the old Weibert Meat slaughter house in Fresno a month ago. Not sure how much it cost but I know the new owner's kill, skin, and quarter fee is only $100. Hanging and pagacking will probably cost more but if they take care of kill, skin, and quarter, I can take care of the rest... Just need two new freezers and a new charcoal grill.
Nahh, can see it on this computer, I'll check it on the home machine.Can you see it now? It was a exotic game ranch in Texas. I'll never say it was a hunt. It was defiantely a shoot, but it's my money and I'll chose to spend how I see fit. And it was fun. Lots of fun. Some people spend thousands of dollars on boats or motorcycles or cars or whatever for their fun. This is how I choose to spend my money.

I'm with you man, its not like there are free range buff anymore(very little anyway). I've hunted game ranchs before and I've yet to do one that I would consider a slam dunk. Bison is still on my list.
Which ranch, if you don't mind me asking? Not Shanes place down Uvalde way?
That sounds about right. Around Bakersfield, most of the bison I get come from several different ranches around here and are mostly free range and they usually start around $1500 for ones about that size. The ones I've seen for $1000 are nearly calves that are less than 900 lbs. That's a very nice bull.I talked to the guy briefly and the price was on a sliding scale, 1250-1650
