That was an interesting history of buffalo hunting and how to shoot buffalo.

I didn't understand why you needed a tractor. Don't you just grab'em by the tail and a horn and throw them in the truck?

Nice article.. Buffalo are very tasty IMHO

I took this one several yearsa ago with a 500 Linebaugh Revolver 525 grain WLFN hard cast. One shot was all that was needed. The 50 cal shot completely tharough exiting the animal and blood poured out of the entrance and exit holes.

Buffalobob,
How do you get a buffalo in a pickup like that? We use 5 different processors and every one of them would absolutely freak out if we would show up with an animal without the hide. They don't even want them if they are covered up without the hide.

jwp475,
That is a very nice bull. A handgun is a good choice for a buffalo as long as it's big enough and it looks like you had that covered. We had a guy come hunt with a 500 S&W and it was way too much gun for him. He shot too high, hit the spine, and the buffalo kind of flopped over the side of this cut bank. I heard him later on the phone with his wife telling her how his new pistol blew this buffalo clear off the hill.

Thanks, Buffalorancher, I hit this one tight behind the shoulder and got the heart. The big guns require a learning curve inorder to shoot them well. The big bore conversions on the Ruger frames are HEAVY kickers to be sure...


Here is a meat buffalo taken also with a revolver

I have 454 Casull that I used to shoot quite a bit and at best I was maybe a marginal shot. Now that I don't hardly shoot it at all I am completely inept with it.
