We offer several types of buffalo hunts.
The first and most impressive is our trophy hunt. This is a hunt for a truly trophy bull in its native habitat. These bulls are not often found because of the problems with keeping them around. They make a very impressive mount and an exciting hunt. All our buffalo are hunted in a wild, open range setting on our ranch of 3300 acres. We can accommodate blackpowder, pistol, high-powered rifle and highly skilled archers. Due to the hardiness and danger of buffalo we only accept archers who have previously taken a grizzly, polar bear or cape buffalo.
Ken will personally back you up during the hunt, as big buffalo bulls can be very dangerous. We will also field dress the animal and transport the carcass to a local butcher at no added cost. Ken can cape your mount and ship the head and hide to a taxidermist for a nominal fee (see below). All the meat, head and hide are yours to enjoy!
No Kansas hunting license in needed. No season dates. You can hunt our buffalo year-round.
We also offer several other types of buffalo hunts and we can accommodate handicapped or youth hunters. Buck the antigun nuts and show a kid how to hunt!

All weights and ages are carefully considered approximations. Trophy Bulls are very hard to come by and can be booked only as the bulls are located. Hunts are booked as bulls or cows are available. We can arrange for processing, taxidermy work and shipping. Prices are subject to change with availability and market fluctuations. Prime hide season is normally from the end of November thru January.
