Today we visited the National Bison Range in Moiese, Montana. 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. The Refuge was established to support a population of American bison. It is home to about 350-500 of these animals and covers approximately 18,500 acres.
Other large wildlife found on the Range include elk, white-tail and mule deer, pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep and black bear. We were quite lucky with the wildlife. We saw a ton of deer, a herd of elk drinking at Mission Creek, lots of pronghorn antelope and buffalo grazing in the field. Jerry and Jared even tried a bit of fishing in Mission Creek. Still no luck with the fishing. :-) I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story. More later from Montana.
