All orientations will take place at the council chambers and begin at noon and 6 pm. Council chambers is located at the Tribal Complex off Highway 93.

Please register early as space is limited. To prepare for this bison hunt and other off Reservation hunts bring your updated tribal identification and any unfilled permits and report card to the orientation.

This bison tag does not guarantee that you will successfully harvest a bison. Like other big game hunts, the availability of bison during the hunt period will depend on weather, migratory patterns of bison and other factors.
