Jake's Difficulty Rating
Plains Bison 1

Jake rated each animal based on three criteria:

1.) degree of training probably required:
2.) element of danger...(either from the expected weather, terrain, or animal)
3.) the cost.

Zero would be the lowest, and three would the highest.

He did not take into account the difficulty involved in taking a P&Y caliber animal (i.e. mule deer, etc).

Jake's Plains Bison Summary

My plains bison was taken in British Columbia just a few days before Christmas. They are an immense animal (though the Wood Bison is bigger, IMO), and they are much more alert than I originally expected them to be. My shot hit further back than I intended, so more than one arrow was required to put the animal down for good. However, a well placed arrow will kill them within seconds, as I took a huge Wood Bison a couple years earlier and he was dead within 35 we all know, it is all about arrow placement. They are excellent table fare.....especially when tenderized and marinated for a day or two.
