Here is Rob Sperring’s stunning, old, broomed, and FREE-RANGING Bison from the state of California. Difficult to determine an exact age (at least 12+ years), this beautiful ~1,600 lb. bull will be providing just over 400 pounds of high-quality/protein, low fat/cholesterol meat for the Sperring family years to come. To top it off, he harvested the bull with a @henry_rifles lever-action .45-70. 🇺🇸
After the Walrus, the Bison is the largest North American game animal, with bulls averaging 1,600 - 2,000 pounds. Set-schedule free-range Bison hunts in the United States are so few and far between, and @NealAndBrownleeLLC is proud to work with a personally-validated, world-class outfitter for these select few true free-ranging Bison hunts.
During the late 19th century, the Bison was hunted nearly to extinction. By the end of 1880, there was thought to be less than 500 Bison left, which is astonishing considering there were an estimated 30 million roaming in the 16th century. Mainly hunted for their skins, the rest of the animal was left to decay. After rotting, the bones were collected to be used as fertilizer. Another reason for this massacre was to take away one of the main food sources for the Native Americans, driving them off their land.
The best hunts, in the best locations, worldwide.
