July 22, 2019 The American Bison

The American Bison is our favorite animal in the Park. Most of the big attractions, Bear, wolves, Moose, Elk etc are usually a long ways away and you are looking through a spotting scope to see them. But the Bison are everywhere in the Lamar Valley. If you watch their movements and they look like they are going to cross the road it is time for a Bison jam. But we love them. We go find a pullout near the guessed crossing point and then just park and wait. Often the Bison will cross right around you allowing you to get a very up close and personal look at the animals. As long as you DON’T get out of your car. Bison kill more people in the Park then Grizzly Bears. But I must say you would have to do something stupid to get a bison that mad at you.
