This historic herd of American bison is a direct decedent of the same herd Buffalo Bill Cody once hunted. At the confluence of the North and South Fork Rivers, Buffalo Bill at the age of 21, became a commercial buffalo hunter for the purpose of supplying food for the railroad as our young country expanded west. In just over 1.5 years, Cody successfully harvested over 4,000 bison and was given the name, “Buffalo Bill Cody”, – these bison are lineage to this herd! Still, today, this naturally sustaining herd of bison see no vaccinations or supplemental feeding programs and roam as they did back in 1867 during the time of Buffalo Bill. Cody’s original homestead sits just west of this 3,000-acre estate, which is comprised of some of the most unmanicured, undisturbed, rolling countryside found anywhere in the modern-day Lower 48.

This historic destination is now paired with some of the finest accommodations that exist in the adventure travel industry. The lodge itself is worth the trip. An architectural masterpiece filled with natural woods, this venue is warm and inviting. Spectacular rooms with a fantastic social space to reminisce about the day afield, this is a fantastic destination for both individual and corporate travelers looking for the very best. Space is limited, so give WTA a call today to reserve a reservation – 1-800-346-8747.
