REQUESTS FOR 2019 YOUNG BULL BUFFALO HUNTS
YOUNG ANIMALS: Only our young bulls will be hunted, no heifers will be taken, for the next several years. This means that the numbers of hunters who will be able to come will be drastically reduced for a few years. To be as fair as possible we will draw names for hunts, first from those applicants who have been here on hunts three times or more, and then, if there are animals still available, from all other applicants. All whose names are not drawn will be put on our waiting/cancellation list.
Price: $2,000 per young bull. These will be 1-½-year-old bulls of good size, between 800 and 850 pounds live weight. You can anticipate getting between 200 and 215 pounds of good boned meat from each one. It is your responsibility to line up a processor in advance of your hunt and haul the animal to them, but we will field dress it for you and load it on your pickup or trailer. No permit or license is required and there are no other fees.
Deposit: We require half down on the total price for whatever number of young bulls you book, due only when it is determined that you have a hunt reserved. If you cancel your hunt after May 31, 2019, there is a $50 cancellation fee and the remainder of your deposit will be returned to you, but there is no cancellation charge before that date.
Dates: Hunts for young bulls will be held from September 3 through October 25, 2019. All hunts start at 8 a.m., Mondays through Saturdays, no Sunday hunts. We will book one party or group only per day. There is a limit of no more than three animals per day/group to be taken. These are half day or one day hunts, depending on the number taken.
You will need to provide your own lodging and food, as needed. But we will have the best guide in the business waiting for you!
All hunters must be at least 15 years old. These are hunts for experienced hunters and require practice and accuracy. Big game rifles are needed, and no close range weapons may be used, such as black powder rifles, handguns, or bows.
Requests must be received by August 31, 2018. For young bull hunts, please fill out this HUNT REQUEST FORM and submit it. The “Contact Person” is you, or whoever booked those past hunts with us. Your 2019 hunt date will be set after August 31st if it is determined you will have a hunt. We can’t guarantee your preference of dates, but will work with everyone to try to satisfy your needs.
If you have not gotten confirmation that your form was received within one week of sending it, please email Peggy at email@example.com. No telephone requests will be taken. You will be notified by email by September 30, 2018, whether or not we are able to fill your request.
Thank you for considering Twin Pine Ranch buffalo hunts!
