After You Shoot

• Field dressing and retrieval
Given the massive size of an adult bison, field dressing and retrieval of this game animal can be quite a challenge. Bison have very thick hides, which retain a lot of heat. You must be able to gut, skin, and process your bison immediately while in the field to avoid bone souring and waste of game.

• Waste of game
Hunters should be prepared to quickly process a harvested animal. Blackfeet Game Wardens will enforce all big game hunting laws, including waste of game. The penalty for waste may include a revocation of one’s hunting and fishing privileges.
