Looks like a bison skull. 

Not sure if it is recent (but really old) or fossilized. 

 

You might consider taking measurments horn tip to horn tip.

The eyes bug out big time.

@Harry Pristis, if I recall, always seems very informative on bison and Pleistocene mammals. Been meaning to show him a mandible I found recently.

@Eggman 

 

Please note that you only need to post the skull in one topic on the Forum.  ;)

 

That said, check out this PDF.  You may get some educated or wild guesses elsewhere, but a confident ID is based on the measurements and distinguishing characteristics.  You have an undistorted view that is an advantage over views from photos.

I hope this past discussion helps.   This maybe either Bison Bison or Bison Antiqus.  @Harry Pristis  added horn size chart in the discussion.

I agree that it is best to use measurements to determine B. bison vs. antiquus.  Great find.
