There are 20 buffalo that don't respawn so once you kill them they are dead.. mostly found in the great plains. I personally tried to complete this achievement before completeting the mission "For Purely Scientific Purposes" and i managed to kill 18 buffalo but couldn't find anymore even using bait .. so i gave up and continued with the story .. when i got to the mission "For Purely Scientific Purposes" at the beggining you are riding with mc and and nasada . You come across what i guess is supposed to be a heard of buffalo they comment on it.. but in my case there was only two running i popped them both that was it.

Hope this helps. in short you need to complete that mission before you have access to all the buffalo
mikeldd2ummm okay .. i wasted 3 hours trying to find them .. so if you guys want to "hunt" them down its up too u... but Like i said in my last solution i couldn't kill them all till that mission but thanks for your help sogeman :(

CEREAL KILLAH23I've yet to do a mission in Blackwater and yet i was just exploring the area when I came upon the herd. I used Dead Eye as much as possible and only two escaped. Later on i came upon the remaining 2 and killed them, end of story.

You can get this achievement as soon as you gain access to the 3rd part.

M3ALLISTERi know it's probably a glitch but i was up in the mountains near nekoti rock i believe and set some bait to attract bears. instead(and this only happened once) a bunch of buffalo started running down the mountainside. pretty good solutions you guys just figured i'd share an odd story:)

steveRPGmrAnyone who has played this game for an extended period knows it tends to be glitchy. I've had random buffalo show up on the Great Plains even -AFTER- I fired the Manifest Destiny achievement; but never more than one at a time and they will be very few and very far apart...
