Buffalo

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!

2019 Wounded Warrior Hunt

In January we hosted Purple Heart Stephen Lunt, USMC (Retired), and treated him to an authentic prairie bison hunt. The spot-and-stalk hunt provided Stephen a great experience as well as all the meat, hide, and head from the animal. The Denver, Colorado-based American Heroes in Action played an integral role in organizing and providing additional funding for the transportation, butcher and taxidermy fees.

We’ve been wanting to give back to our troops in a very real way for years. We’ve consistently donated buffalo jerky to our troops serving overseas but we’ve wanted to do something bigger and better for a returning veteran that needed a hand-up. We understand how ethical hunting and time in nature can help heal the soul and we are so glad that we’ve been able to provide this hunt to Stephen.

Stephen Lunt, the recipient of the hunt, was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina. He served 8 years with the United States Marines Corps and endured multiple deployments overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan. On March 2, 2010, while serving in combat operations in Herat Province Afghanistan with the 1st Marine Special Operations Battalion, Lunt’s unit was attacked along a river bottom. Stephen was struck in the head with an axe by a local national fighter while engaging in close-quarters combat. He was evacuated to Bagram, Afghanistan, where the first of 2 brain surgeries took place to repair his skull and spine. Stephen is an avid bowhunter who uses physical fitness and outdoor rehabilitation to empower himself and help other veterans heal through hunting, fishing, and other outdoor experiences. Stephen is now a student at Colorado State University and is in his final year of his master’s degree in weed ecology with a completed undergraduate degree in rangeland ecology.

We worked closely with our friend, Command Sergeant Major Dale Veneklasen (Retired), to organize this hunt. CSM Veneklasen served in the Calvary unit known as the Buffalo Soldiers in many deployments. The American Buffalo is central to their military culture and the hunt provides a special significance to him. Mr. Veneklasen makes his home near Ft. Carson and now dedicates his time to helping wounded warriors integrate into society.

Also assisting with the hunt was Brian Soliday, board member of the all-volunteer American Heroes in Action organization. His help was invaluable in providing additional funding and support to complete the experience for Stephen.

We are working on plans for next year’s hunt to make this an annual tradition of thanks and remembrance for the men and women who serve us in harm’s way.
