Discover Western Montana’s American Bison

At nearly 2,000 pounds, these nomadic grazers are the largest land mammals in North America, and the closest relatives to domesticated cattle. They have shaggy, chocolate colored coats, and both male and female bison have horns for self defense. Their heads hang low, making it easier to eat vegetation that’s growing close to the ground. To see where Montana’s buffalo roam, visit 300 – 500 of them at the National Bison Range near Moiese. Keep your distance when viewing. For more, visit Montana Field Guide.
