Discover Western Montana’s American Bison

With females up to 1,000 pounds and males up to 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 bison roam, visit roughly 350 to 500 of them at the Bison Range near Moiese. Keep your distance when viewing. For more, visit Montana Field Guide.
