Private-land buffalo hunts vary, based on the owner's terms. On some, you're allowed to keep the whole carcass; on others, you can take only the head and hide, but you must buy the meat at a prearranged price. Typically you're offered a trophy bull, meat bull or cow. Costs for hunts vary widely, but a meat bull is usually two or three years old and weighs about 1,000 pounds. Meat-bull hunts run $1,000 to $2,000 or more. A trophy bull is at least five years old. These hunts command the highest prices, ranging from $2,500 to $4,000 or more. Cows are the cheapest-hunts cost around $1,000.
