Place ground bison in bowl and season with salt and pepper. Divide into four patties and place on foil-lined plate.
Heat grill to high. Once grill is heated, place burgers a few inches apart and close the grill top. Cook about 5-6 minutes per side for medium-rare (may vary depending on how hot your grill is and how thick you make your patties). Once flipped, add cheese once only 1 minute remaining on the cook time.
Remove from grill and place on bun. Top with avocado and tomato slices then dig in!
