The Art of Bison Persuasion


This past week I had the chance to ride along to bring in a herd 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.


Their winter pasture consists of 24,000 acres, which can make finding them a challenge. If they are miles away in rough terrain, it may take days to get them close to the river and onto their summer pasture. If this is the case we will either use horses or ATV'S and get behind them at a distance, making a presence, to encourage them to head for home. When they are within a couple of miles we will use a different approach, which is featured in the video. It may not be as sexy as a bunch of cowboys running open with a herd of stampeding buffalo in front of them, but it is less stressful on the buffalo and the people. I hope you enjoy it!

    Thank you so much for what you do in raising the buffalo, to sustain their presence on the land and also providing a very healthy meat source for us.
