These beautiful animals roamed our continent by the millions until they were hunted to near extinction in the 1800s. Through strict conservation efforts, we now enjoy the opportunity to hunt these magnificent creatures yet again. Their meat is very lean and has almost no fat marbled into it, with one of the lowest cholesterol levels of any kind of meat. Their heads make incredible mounts and the hides make great rugs and comforters. Additionally, bison are the only known mammals that cannot contract cancer.
