Bison are slow-moving, grass-grazing quadrupeds analogous to buffalo. When enraged, they can melee and can become a threat to colonists due to their high health.

A bison will also increase the carrying capacity of any caravan it's part of by 84 kg, making them an excellent pack animal.

Taming

Bison can be found in temperate forests and arid shrublands. They can either be tamed by a Handler or self-tame in a random event.

Bison can be bought and sold in other faction bases and from bulk goods traders. Bison purchased from traders will be already tamed.

This animal can be trained as follows:

Attack:  Ex.png
Rescue:  Ex.png
Haul:  Ex.png

*As of version 1.1.2610, all animals can be tamed. The percentage of likelihood of success depends on factors such as the Animals Wildness Percentage, Pawn Handling Skill, and others. More information can be found on the animals page.

Production

Bison can be sheared by animal handlers once every 15 days, giving Bison wool 120 pieces of bison wool worth Silver 324 silver.

See animal products for more details on how much each type of animal produces.

Analysis

They provide a large quantity of leather compared to other creatures that spawn in the same biomes. Killing two or three bison usually provides enough leather (or wool if you are willing to tame them) to make a parka as well as a generous amount of meat.

Bison stats are essentially equivalent to muffalo except they have a slightly higher market value and movement speed, and give plainleather instead of bluefur. When tamed they give bison wool instead of muffalo wool, which is largely the same but has an inferior cold insulation - offering an insulation factor of +26oC instead of +28oC (see Textile Comparison Table).
