looking for a primary source on bison hunting

Looking for information on USA policy to help exterminate American Indians by killing off bison. I have found nothing concrete and I am beginning to suspect that the allegations might be on a par with the phoney Chief Seattle quotes. Can anyone help ?

I don't think you will find a USA policy to exterminate American Indians by killing off bison. However, the story of the buffalo hunters can be partly found in Billy Dixon's book,

I see this 2nd book can be purchased used for the price of shipping.
