    National Bison Day 11/5/22

    Estimated half a million bison in North America.

    "You can't roller skate in a herd"... But why would you want to?

    We had a fellow start a bison ranch here a few years ago.

    He didn't read all of the fine print of his Bison Ranch Starter Kit - bison can jump a higher fence than a cow can. And so The Great Roundup began.

    We found a really cool, much older, bison in a bog here as well, and the anthropologists have been very excited about it:

    That is Kansas' state animal (mammal?). Not sure if it's a Bison or a Buffalo. State song says "where the buffalo roam." They are magnificent.

    Ordinarily I admire bison from afar. One day I had a flat tire in the Riding Mountain National Park in Canada. There was no alternative but to change to my spare tire. I was well and truly among a herd of bison. I thought I should be wary of the cow and calf nearest me.

    I recall a prickly sweat, as I did my thing, and THEY did theirs. All was well. We drove in to Wasagaming, and I spent a small fortune for a new tire.
