    heading up after bison in January...

    good morning all, i know its still a few weeks away, but we are getting a little excited!

    looking for weather/snow reports for January 15th onwards...is it a sled or a quad trip? we don't have the option of bringing both...

    We are in zone 7-57B, had a draw in 2016 and were successful with our 2 bison. Hoping for a repeat now that we have a bit of a clue of what what we are doing.

    cheers everyone!!

    A relative tole me a relative just returned from a bison hunt, not sure what zone they were drawn for but they were a skunk. All they came across were multiple carcasses strewn throughout the region. Apparently they were preempted if you know what I mean.
