Ok, so we do have a late season meat bison hunt available. Hunt includes guides, meals, lodging, meat bison, skinning/quartering feral pigs, and 2 days 3 nights. Hunt total is $3750. Not included is pre/post trip expenses, meat processing, Texas hunting license, normal stuff. This is a very physically demanding hunt and you will spend a lot of time on foot hiking and stalking. Bison is estimated to weigh around 800lbs. This needs to be done from March through Early may. I will not hold it past May.

I shot one of @gizmo meat bison last February. I brought 6 large coolers, which was just enough for my bison and a single hog. I had lined up a butcher back home to process everything, $300 for all.

Man processing is up to the particular processor. I have a local guy that can do it in a couple weeks generally.

A little over 2 y/o and a bull. I do not have any cow’s available.

I will confirm that you will walk a lot. This is not a cake walk folks! I followed Justin for three days trying to get a shot at one of the meat bulls. We just never could get on them with a clear shot or they stay in one place long enough. You will definitely earn your bull.

Wish I'd known this was an option when I lived in Texas.
I do these every year if I can. Rising beef prices are starting to get outta hand. We’d be glad to have you hunt with us.

Good price. Planned a hunt in Limon CO. Processing was $1.50/lb based on hanging weight.

Guess who's hunting bison at the Rockin G? Now I have to figure out what gun I want to take along.

Good for you! You will have a great time hunting with them. Justin is a hoot to hunt with and Kelly’s cooking is worth the trip.

What sort of distance do you shoot at? Is that an iron sighted double, or a scoped rifle sort of thing? Minimum calibre?

Well in the three days I was there chasing them, the closest we got was about 125 yards. But never a clear clean shot. I took my 375 HH. That’s what Gizmo recommended.

I am sure he will advise further on this.

I've been on a dozen bison hunts on the Henry Mountains in Utah and have seen hunters use just about everything from a 270 Win on up to a 416 Weatherby.

All the animals that have been shot were one or two shot kills

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

I'm at <pappas@mtaonline.net> Send me an email with your phone and I will call you about a skull I have. I went to school in Boston and am from Bernardston in the west part of the state. Moved to Alaska in 1984 adn never looked back.
