Nice! Bison are a sight to behold. My nephew was visiting a couple weeks ago and we went to Antelope Island State Park out on the edge of the Great Salt Lake one day. There’s a herd of about 400 out there, but the only one we saw at close range was this BIG solitary bull.
My wife ran the 50 miler on Antelope Island some years ago, and one of the island Bison half-heartedly chased after her for a short distance.
They do own the road as a matter of fact .
Those bison might move... they minot.
I lived in Minot when my dad was stationed there in the US Air Force around 1965. I remember a few things (I was four). One thing, Coca Cola had a promotional.
So, back "in the day", Coke bottles were sealed with cork. They used cork under the caps (which needed a bottle opener to remove the cap) to seal them. Under the Coke bottle caps was a football (American) helmet team logo. Back then, there were 28 football teams (NFL and AFL). Coke gave out a poster with each team's helmet logo within a small (bottle cap size) circle. Under the bottle cap was a logo of a football team. You had to remove the cork to see which football team logo you had and if you collected all 28 logos, you affixed them to the poster and sent in the poster and Coca Cola sent you a regulation football. I got a football, which resides in a landfill somewhere.
I remember we had Air Force base housing. The wind would blow snowdrifts against our two story townhouse. I remember leaning out the second story window and grabbing snow (you couldn't get out by the front door, too much snow).
I remember the Packers were my dad's favorite team and they remained MY favorite team until I became disinterested a few years ago.
oh give me a home.....
Reminds me of an old joke.
Q: "What's the difference between a buffalo and a bison?"
"I don't know what's the difference between a buffalo and a bison?"
A: "You can't wash your hands in a buffalo....".
A few years ago on the police blotter of our local newspaper there was a report, “Buffalo at large”.
I grew up in North Dakota. Our neighbors had a small herd of buffalo... about 50. You need pretty sturdy fences for buffalo. They're not sure what those little sticks and wires are for, so they will often just keep on walking...
Bison kinda remind me of moose. Oftentimes they seem very docile and just mellow, like gentle giants....until they don’t. You break the fight or flight distance barrier and the next thing you know you’re getting tossed into the air like a friggin’ rag doll or stomped out and kicked in the teeth. Gotta give them plenty of room to just do their thing.
