The 310-acre Big Game Reserve, south of the SRA, holds a small herd of buffalo, elk and sometimes longhorn cattle. Visitors are not permitted within the fenced reserve. The best opportunity to view the bison and elk occurs during the early morning and evening hours along the boundary fence. The number of animals kept on the reserve is limited by grass conditions, and some may be moved to other locations from time to time to maintain herd quality. The Wildcat Hills buffalo herd provided the start for the bison now raised at Fort Robinson State Park.
The game reserve is also home to a variety of other wildlife, including wild turkey, deer, bobcat and coyote. The boundary road paralleling the reserve fence on the east side ends at the Scotts Bluff-Banner county line, where there is a turnaround.
