How Buffalo Taught Me to be a Responsible Capitalist

I belong to the Baby Boomer Generation and if you are a Millennial, Gen-X, or Gen-Z person, I owe you an apology. My cohorts and I are the ones that didn’t adequately stand up to the forces of ignorance and greed that are killing everything that is wild. But we were the first generation that understood that what humans were doing to wild things was suicidal. We are culpable for knuckling under in the face of the power behind that insanity and I’m sorry for the part I played in that tragedy.

The Art of Bison Persuasion

This past week I had the chance to ride along to bring in a bunch of buffalo from their winter grazing grounds on the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands. Dan and Colton had been bringing bunches in all week and we hoped this was the last group.

Wild Means Wild

In about a week we will start gathering the buffalo off the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands (their winter pasture) and bring them back across the Cheyenne River to their summer pasture. It will also be the first time that I have been among them since my accident, almost two months ago.

Last month shortly before Valentine’s Day, I had an accident involving one of our bison. Bison, as we all know, are and always will be a wild animal.

The Making of a Food Photo

A couple of months ago a friend had forwarded an article from one of his advertising buddies on food photography on to me. It included a video on the making of a McDonalds hamburger, which was about why the burger you buy doesn’t look like the one in the marketing photos. The video took you inside the photo shoot production and showed a full staff of people that were part of the process. There was even one person that was JUST in charge of the buns. Racks and racks of sesame seed buns, insuring that they were all perfect. I took away some pointers and thanked the sender.

As one travels…

As one travels the center of our country the effort to conserve and restore the diversity and natural systems of the American Great Plains is evident. Conservation groups, government agencies, and individuals are hard at work on a thousand projects; from habitat restoration, to reintroduction of endangered species, to watershed protection, to base-line science that will help us understand what needs to be done. I see these efforts everywhere I go and I marvel at the array of fronts on which lovers of the “Big Open” are working.

Winter Grazing

It has been a full-blown winter here on the prairie. Since our first snowstorm in early December the snow has continued and the cold temperatures have remained persistent. 

The snow is starting to lose its charm and the frigid temps are starting to show in people's personalities. The only thing that seems unaffected is the buffalo and the wildlife.
