Buffalo hunting with Routier Outfitting is done on large private ranches that are low fenced and consists of rolling sagebrush on the traditional Buffalo roaming grounds of the 1800s. We have actually found old horns on the ground from these herds. Rumor has it that the last wild Buffalo in this area was actually shot in this place. I'm not actually sure if that was a whiskey rumor or the truth, but it sounds good. You start out in the morning having a home cooked breakfast at the Lodge. Eggs, bacon and toast and the likes are the norm. We arrive at the hunting area right at daylight and start glassing for the trophy of a lifetime.

Bison Hunting with Routier Outfitting

Even though we do meat hunts we are known for our large mature Bulls 10+ years in age. These big brutes have either quit the herd or been kicked out by younger Bulls and are found by themselves or with one or two other older Bulls that have left the herd also. Buffalo herds have a strict hierarchy and once a Buffalo bull reaches a certain age the younger and stronger Bulls take over. That is why old and mature Bulls get kicked out Once the bull that the guide and hunter thinks are worthwhile the stock is on. These hunts are traditional spot and stalk hunting. We don't just drive up and shoot them out the window of the pickup and the pastures are huge. This is not a small pastor feedlot type of hunt where you shoot your animal in an enclosure. This is the real deal. We use the terrain and land features to get within comfortable shooting distance for the hunter.

About Us

Routier Outfitting is owned and operated by Ryan Routier with the help of his older brother Randy. Routier Outfitting was started over 30 years ago by their mom Laurie. Raising three young boys while running a ranch any additional income was welcome. At first, it might have just been a day hunt to go hunt some antelope but Routier Outfitting just kept growing and growing.
