Non-Trophy Buffalo

The purpose of the non-trophy bison hunt is to remove excess cows and bulls, (primarily two year old bulls), from the herd of Custer State Park in addition to our annual auction. A guide will locate this class of bison for your selection. Non-trophy bulls are typically 2 1/2 years of age and will range from 900-1,100+ pounds. 

Local taxidermists are available to prepare a cape for shipping or for complete service in mounting the animal. Contact them early.
