The Plains Bison is a class 9 bovine. It can be hunted in Yukon Valley and in the Silver Ridge Peaks . The Plains Bison is one of two species of bison in the game, the other one being the European Bison [which is an animal featured in Hirschfelden Hunting Reserve].


The plains bison, sometimes called "buffalo", is one of the two subspecies of the American bison, the biggest land mammal of North America. Compared to their forest-dwelling European cousins, plains bison are heavier, stronger, and more territorial. Plains bison are massive animals with mature adults measuring up to 185 cm at the shoulder and weighing on average between 400 and 1000 kg. Their massive size, strength, surprising speed, and gregarious lifestyle protects mature bison from most predators, but wolves and bears sometimes hunt young, isolated or weakened individuals. It is not uncommon to see a bison stand its ground against predators, often with devastating effect. As such, hunters should be especially cautious when hunting one.
