You could always tell when the supply was getting low. Dinner would become creamed salmon on toast! Or pancakes!
Let me know if it is too much beef for you. I'd love to buy some fresh meat from you!

My parents used to order half-cows on a regular basis (we're a fairly large family and had a large chest freezer). One time she even insisted on having all of it, fat and bones included (usually they'd be butchered to order), and she rendered fat and used it instead of cooking oil & crisco (believe me, that smelled terrible during the process, but tasted delicious).

My dad shot a bison once, several years ago. A very big one too. After it was processed he had 600 lbs of packaged meat. Steaks, roast, sausage, jerky, etc. He filled 2 upright freezers, gave away as much as he could, gave a bunch to the local food bank, etc. So just find a hunter that wants to get one. He'll likely give you some for free. Can you really use 600 lbs of meat?

Bison here are raised like cattle (except they are kind of wild, require really tall fences, too!), except for those in Yellowstone! ha!
You buy it like beef... no one around here hunts for bison.

Hmm, that's interesting. It wasn't a hunt in the sense that he went out and stalked one down. More of a ranch type hunt. And the theory of a fence for bison is interesting. Those big bulls are the size of an F-150!

What do you mean by "theory?" Of course there are fences. They can jump vertically like CRAZY! There are bison ranches out here and you can tell because of their fences.

All I mean is that I would like to see the fence that could contain a full grown bison! Like trying to fence in a tank. Of course if they have everything they need they really have no motivation to get out. And I think that's part of it.

No one is disputing that there are fences.
