Silvertine's White Giant Bison
A white buffalo or white bison historically was an extremely rare and unique animal, well, not in the 21st century, there are hundreds and hundreds of them spread across North America presently. No longer a rarity there are dozens of White Bison breeders on North America presently. The increase percentage of white buffalo can only be attributed to better knowledge about genetics and breeding — breeders are simply able to create white buffalo in abundance today.
Are the majority of present day White Bison simply "Beefalo" (Bison crossed with Cattle), then bred back repeatedly to bison to retain the best Phenotypical Traits of the bison, while retaining the inherent DNA white coat coloration of their cattle ancestors? DNA tests have shown this is most likly the case. Breeders have been breeding White Bison now with such success the last two decade that we are so many generations into the breeding them, that they look IDENTICAL to pure bison, and are testing 95-98% pure Bison in a DNA test.
In nature White Bison are a result of several factors, they may be Albino or Leucistic naturally. Those ones are very rare, and these are the White Bison that many First nation Cultures is considered to be sacred or spiritual, therefore, such buffalo are often visited for prayer and other religious rituals. As they believe the White Bison is a sign of "rebirth", as it reaffirms that things will get better for the people, especially in times of famine and war. Story goes: White Buffalo Calf Woman, last seen by the Lakota people as she shape shifted into a snow-white buffalo calf before disappearing into the setting sun. She promised to return every generation, guiding Earth’s people toward peace and wisdom. She would return, the legend says, at a time of great shift and transformation, the harbinger of a new and enlightened era.
Our White Bison have exceptional coat pigment, with robes quality with thick hair. Silvertine White Bison have the best full frontal robes,long chaps, beard and forehead mop. Only in this Northern Climate do these animals grow amazing long winter coats! I offer hunts ONLY for older trophy bulls that have lived long full lives as breeders.
I am fortunate to have one of ONLY three herds of White Bison in Canada, and be to a point with my herd that I can offer sportsmen a opportunity to harvest my old bulls. I do recommended hunters look towards late fall to early winter (November to January) dates for the fullest and most amazing robes.

Because of all the anti-hunting emails I get over allowing hunters to shoot my old White Bulls, let me say this. You need to understand death comes to every single living being, and I oversee an ethical end for my old bulls right here in their home, out in nature, rather than a commercial slaughter yard. These animals are raised commercially for meat, just as any other Bison or cattle are. The meat from all my animals that are harvested will now go to personally feed someones family, and the mounted trophy will be immortalized for future generations to see and enjoy forever!
