Now Denmark ain't known as Bizon country, therefore it is a little special to se heards of those big animals. 
We have a local farmer who have one of the few farms that are having Bisons.
People looks twice when suddenly there's 150 heads next to them in the landscabe next to the road.
I talked the farmer in to giving my wife and i a tour in his truck out between the big animals. Great to se them that close.
He told me they are still wild animale, you can't pet them like a cow. He is not getting out of the car when he is out there. They export a lot of them, both alive and as meat. A big bull costs around 5-6000us$.
The biggest of the bulls you see below was the boss in the heard. MAAAN he was big. Weighet in the neighborhood of 1,3 ton  ( 2800 pound )

+1 on the pics.Those are some good eating critters,nothing like Bison spicy stew & a hunk of home made semilina bread.I have a Bison farm less than 30 mins.from me so I get the fresh kill,not even frozen yet Yippee
 
Yeah they are some large animals.The guy by me does the same as by you,for $3 he will drive you right into the middle of the heard but he actually gets off the truck & will feed them Loco
 
This is a small farm with only 40 cows & 2 bulls in the range of 2k lbs[little guys]

I made a roast in the Weber at New Years evening. It turned out pretty good. Took it of at 55 degrees Cel.
( app. 131 Fh.) and let it rest for a while. Yummmy. 
Wow... i´ll tell my farmer friend he's a pussy, ha ha.

Great pics.  You wouldn't want to get out.  Gets messy when you make them mad.

Ernie we need to talk.  I've got a neighbor 3 miles  from me that does the same thing Has a Butcher shop Open part time to the public.  Has a herd of about of about 45 too.  I haven't tried it yet but have heard it's the leanest of meats.  That recipe sounds wonderful!

It is lean, but Axis is actually the leanest of meats... about 0.20% fat.  Ain't no better.  But I DO love the bison...

It is not strictly speaking "hunting"... More like shooting. But it did taste very good! And kept my family of carnivores fed for almost 2 years!

Welllll, they were called "Buffalo Hunters"...
Ok, ok, ok... A buffalo (bison) stalk hunt.  Take us out, give us a direction, "where in the world is the buffalo herd..."  Have to use "old time" shooting sticks, minimum .458 caliber... whatever restrictions are required to make it "sporting"...

I am not saying its not fun. Just saying it is not exactly Queens-bury rules. I found out first hand why the American Bison dang near went extinct.

Sitting in trees for deer is certainly Queensbury rules...

 
Don't get me wrong, I've done it and still do, but not my favorite way to "hunt"...

Oh and '06 with 220gr power-points does the trick just fine.

Come to think of it, my 300 has only killed a crow, and that doesn't really count does it?

I'm game for that!! You think it would stop a 200 gr. Bulldozer at 3000 fps? I have a bison farm within an hour of me too.... A big one. My dad, and uncle bought one, and split it. Uncle dropped it with a .25-06 100 gr. behind the ear. I'm sure a 25-06 is considered "light" for Bison!   Bucky   KB, we need to get the .458 Bulldozer finished for this trip!!
