The Native Americans called these huge majestic beasts TATONKA which translates to “The Spirit Animal.” Bison sometimes called Buffalo have long been a symbol of the American Old West and one of America’s most iconic animals. They have made an incredible comeback after nearly being slaughtered into extinction. Through the efforts of private ranches like Tatonka Creek, bison are thriving once again across the Americas.
Tatonka Creek is proud to offer spot and stalk “buff” hunts during the South Texas winter months. This is the prime time for the best quality coats. There has recently been a surge in the bison meat market because American “meat eaters” are looking for a healthier alternative to beef. Bison is tastier and has less fat and calories than beef. Our herd is 100% organic and hormone free, so you will be receiving nothing but the very best quality meat.

If hunting with a rifle, we only allow Big Game Calibers (.300 Mag or comparable caliber) and head shots (right behind ear) on large bull hunts. This is the most humane way to bring these giants down plus no meat is ruined.
Guides will cape and quarter all bison at a cost of $100-$300 depending on the size of the animal unless you plan to transport the animal whole from the ranch.
There will also be a $100 guide fee added to the hunt. Please remember that Bison/Buffalo are wild and dangerous. They should never be approached!
Nonhunting Guest: $180 includes 2 nights lodging.
