the national bison range

Moiese, Montana

August 6, 2012

The National Bison Range was established in 1908 to save the buffalo from extinction.  A large portion of the 18,700 acres consists of native Palouse Prairie.  Forest, wetlands and streams are also found here providing a wide range of habitats for wildlife.  Elk, deer, pronghorn, black bear, coyote and big horn sheep are just some of the mammals that share the area with 350 to 500 buffalo.


We got a close-up look at at small herd of big horn sheep and they kept an eye on me.



This pronghorn posed on the ridge for us.


and we did see the big herd of buffalo
