“home to over 350 Bisons”

The National Bison Range is administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as part of the National Wildlife Refuge System. It was established in 1908 and is one of the oldest Wildlife Refuges in the nation. As its name implies, the Refuge was established to support a population of American bison. It is home to about 350-500 of these animals. Other large wildlife found on the Range include elk, white-tail and mule deer, pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep and black bear. Because of its open grasslands, the Bison Range is a place for the public to enjoy some excellent wildlife observation and photography.

For a mere $5 per vehicle you can take a 2-3 hour driving tour through the National Bison Range. There are several fenced habitats that separate species (antelope, deer, bison, et cetera). The landscapes are spectacular and varied. Well worth the cost of admission and time.
