Bison Behavior

“I know now what this meant, that the bison were the gift of a good spirit and were our strength. . .” ~Black Elk

Monitoring bison behavior is one of our favorite jobs! We love spending time watching the bison up close - a glass of lemonade in one hand and binoculars in the other with a clipboard on our lap, lounging in the back of a 4x4 under a blue Montana sky- and we call it science!

And for the adventurous kids, we’ll sit inside the cage over the water tank to get REALLY close to the bison when they come jostling and grunting to get their drinks (our Bison Quest version of a "shark tank")! Pay attention to what you see here –after getting up close and personal with the bison here, you will better understand the behavior that you’ll witness in the huge numbers of bison that we will see in Yellowstone National Park.
