Hunting at the Rockin' 7 Ranch provides first rate guided
buffalo hunts with restful stays at the Rockin' 7
Lodge. Our Buffalo hunting
is for the biggest buffalo on the ranch and it includes all of the buffalo. There
are no hidden charges or trophy fees. We
charge one price and that price is for pick of the herd. No questions--nobody
telling you which one to shoot, you pick the one you like and he's yours.
drive you out into a 2500 acre pasture and you shoot the buffalo you want. This
pasture has rolling hills, and we can park the truck and stalk around the top
of a hill and get a good vantage point. Usually we can stalk close enough to get
a good 100 yard shot. We clean the buffalo in the pasture and deliver it to the
processors. There are several 6+ year old bulls that are enormous, and would make
great fireplace mounts.
Total herd size is approximately 50.
buffalo hunts take place in Shawnee, Wyoming which
is about 130 miles north of Cheyenne. It is best to drive out to the buffalo
hunt, because the cost of shipping the meat back home is approximately
$5/lb. One of these big bulls will yield around 380 lbs of meat.
Buffalo are big creatures, and we recommend a rifle .30 caliber or larger. Our
processor takes just under 48 hours to have the meat packaged, froze, and ready
to go. We also have a local taxidermist that can meet us at the processors and
take care of all your taxidermy and tanning needs.
Dalton, Georgene and I would like to thank you for our recent stay and hunts at
the ranch. We all had a wonderful time. It was topped off with the succesful buffalo
and coyote hunts. We would also like to thank Laura and Dan for taking such good
care of us. You couldn't ask for better employees. They were exceptional. Your
working relationship with Bob and JJ (taxidermists) was very beneficial. They
are almost as excitied as we are regading the mounting of the buffalo. Thank you
againg for everything. We will definitely keep you in mind for future hunts and
will gladly recommend you to our friends and family. -- Mark Malloy"
