Hunting Bison in the Wilds of Mexico
             The green heights of the savanna were covered with long files of bison. It would have been more than rash for two hunters to face these numerous flocks.---
There is but one way of killing a bison or two without much danger, that is, by separating them from the flock; the skill and agility of the hunter accomplish the rest. Contrary to the expectation of my two companions, the cibolos took the direction parallel to the river; and none of them ventured to our side.
             The first European who saw a bison must have been much alarmed. The bison is larger than the common bull;  a thick mane, either black or rust color, covers his shoulder or breast, and hangs down to his feet. The hind part of the animal, from the hump on his shoulders, is covered with short hair as harsh as the lion’s, and like the lions, incessantly lashed by a sinewy tail. His heavy tread shakes the ground, his bellowing disturbs the air, his eyes expressive of nothing but stupid ferocity: and the black, sharp horns planted on his white brow complete his appearance as an object of terror.

Seed herd of bison to be reintroduced to Soapstone Prairie Natural Area
Mountain Mail Newspaper

A seed herd of purebred American bison – offspring of the native species in Yellowstone National Park – will be reintroduced this fall to a natural area at the hinge of the Rocky Mountains and the Great Plains after an agreement was finalized by Colorado State University and three government agencies.

“The Yellowstone herd is so unique. It started the U.S. conservation movement in large animals,” Dr. Jack Rhyan, a veterinarian with the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Fort Collins and a partner in the reintroduction project, said in a press release.

Southern Plains Pointers: 
  Decisions – decisions – decisions…
  Managing a bison herd and their habitat is all about decisions. During the changing of seasons; some decisions are being made for you – but without you. Dealing with the decisions made for you, by ‘mom-nature’, are the proverbial curve-balls that take a little more experience to hit. In bison ranching; with experience comes; humility and the knowledge that there is always more lessons just around the corner.

  One of the decisions I get asked about this time of year involves working or selling animals during the calving season, or post calving handling-activities before the calves turn from red to brown. This is a curve ball that has to be dealt with sometimes, but the best and most productive decision is to wait until the calves are weaning age and brown. Another common decision, or management reality, is dealing with bulls that seem to be ‘detaching’ from the herd. This may be confused with ‘going rouge’ or unruly behavior, when it is actually quite natural and just ‘a bull thing’. Bachelor-groups are common in bison herds and are usually made up of mature bulls that have passed juvenile social status within the herd. They take the hint from the matriarch’s glares and ‘knife-eyes’ as the female contingent arduously labors for the good of their kind.  I can respectfully relate to this as a male of my species, being raised in the herd and learning to instinctively know when it’s time to hit the ‘man-cave’, wood-shed or shop for awhile. Understanding the social dynamics of ‘your herd’ can help with decisions to act, or to refrain from acting, depending on the circumstance. Sometimes it just seems like something’s wrong – when in fact, and according to nature, it’s very normal. This perspective may save you the cost of replacing a productive bull whose only crime is - acting naturally.  

  Personally; I tend to accept and regard bison as nearly perfect elements of a natural system. If I have a problem to deal with, or decision to make, I strip the circumstance of all human and/or tame variables, then try to understand what the bison are responding to, and why. Many times this will clear the field of vision and provide solutions, while other times – my experience level just becomes enhanced by one more lesson…
