This achievement is called
"Manifest Destiny"
Kill the last buffalo on the great plains in single player

Yes pretty sad achievement, but on to info.
Number of Buffalo = 20
Location Great plains, if you hit the farm or tree lines you have gone too far.
They seem to appear in the middle of 4 different areas if you are looking for them;
The lower case h in beecher;
around r in great plain;
the middle buffalo on the map (close to blackwater);
close to wreck of serendipty (where coyote or fox pic is on the map - southern part.)
(if anyone finds any other locations i will update and give credit)

Jonnyb0b stated that he has
"I've seen buffalo northwest of Blackwater in the little corner the river makes with the open water a couple of times, don't know if that is enough to qualify it for the list."

You only need to kill them you dont need to skin.
Range with a sniper is best as you can get the furthest ones away and then the closest ones. If any of them get out of your line of site you are going to go hunt for them.

I also suggest if you loss site of them use your campfire to savegame, nothing worse than being pounced.
You could also save once in a while, while searching for them, once you find them if you miss some, you could reload and try again, or just go searching.

Rastabikerman - This player has mentioned that he got this achievement by killing someone's buffalo mount from within multiplayer. This is the first time i had heard of this happening so if someone could confirm that would be awesome
(Even though this says single player it seems quite a few people are unlocking it in MP)
