Hi all

Sometimes ago a friend told me about a NP with the last big herd of Bisons

It must be in the north of the USA, "near" (well, whatever near means) of the Yellowstone NP.

Does someone can help me ?

I wish you a nice day

Regards
Jan

Could be Custer? I was there last year and there was a big herd there!

Lot of bison roaming freely in Yellowstone but sometimes hard to find in mid-summer
since they are up high in summer pastures. In the fall and spring you'll probably see
several hundred of them by the road, many at very close range.

A few years back we saw a huge herd in Wind Cave Natl Park, S. Dakota. We had to sit
in our car for almost half an hour while the herd crossed the rode - a pretty
awesome site.

Many western indian reservations have their own herd of bison, esp in SD / ND/ WY /
MT. I find these sort of detours / stops more enjoyable as the indians were the
original keepers of the buffalo.

Riding Mountain National Park in western Manitoba has a large herd of Bison Herd.
Also, Wood Buffalo National Parl on the Alberta, Northwest Territories border has one
of the last remaining, free roaming wood bison herds.

In winter, a large group can be seen just outside of Jackson Hole, Wyoming... about
100 miles south of Yellowstone... much of them are inside a NP- Grand Teton.

Its quite a site.

Lots in Yellowstone, Custer, and Roosevelt NPs. The Yellowstone herd is the easiest
to find along the road. Every summer afternoon between Canyon and Tower.

For longer than a century, a herd has lived in Golden Gate Park. It's a CP,
not an NP.

The zoo is nto in Golden Gate Park. The bison are kept in fenced in area. I beleive
there was a movement a few years ago to remove the bison, but I'm not sure if it has
been accomplished. The enclosure still shows up on maps of GGPark. See
http://www.sfgate.com/traveler/acrob.../ggparkmap.pdf, where it's called the
"Bufalo paddock".
