Typically, the Bison will walk a slow pace, stop and graze nearby food.

If a player steps within roughly a 10 block radius of a Bison, the Bison will run away from the player, sometimes in an erratic pattern, to avoid being hurt.

Players can get closer to the Bison before it runs by wearing Camo Clothing.


A Bison can only be killed with the Bow and Arrows.

Once killed, the Bison will die where it stands and the player can then retrieve the carcass to be processed.


  • Since they are very adept at climbing hills, try to hunt Bison in open areas. This way, you can keep an eye on them during the chase.

Real Life FactsEdit
