Moving day! Everyone always wants to know how we get them to move between pastures. They love to run through an open gate. Just jingle the chain and they come running. #wildwoollyandhorny #cherokeevalleybisonranch #newpasture #graze #grassfed #nationalmammal #bisonofinstagram #herdonthemove

Finally on the road back home with lots of stories and photos to sort through. As we drove out of the park this morning we were lucky enough to get one last goodbye from a herd of bison politely staying in their lane.

#BuffaloFactFriday - All buffalo are born with very small horns that barely stick out of their heads. Their horns continue to grow their entire lives, but can break off from use. Male and female horns grow differently in both size and shape. Both the relative age and the sex of a buffalo can be known by looking at their horns.

American Bison
From Wikipedia: The American bison or simply bison (Bison bison), also commonly known as the American buffalo or simply buffalo, is a North American species of bison that once roamed the grasslands of North America in massive herds. They became nearly extinct by a combination of commercial hunting and slaughter in the 19th century and introduction of bovine diseases from domestic cattle, and have made a recent resurgence largely restricted to a few national parks and reserves.

Bighorn sheep babies! Bighorn sheep are best known for the head-to-head combat between males. Horn size is a symbol of rank and they smash into their opponents at speeds of 20 miles per hour. Thanks to their amazing balance they can go up a mountain at a brisk 15 mph!

As we drove down from our campsite (a dispersed camping spot by the name of Bear Creek... [I definitely had a nightmare about a bear trying to get into our tent... 🐻]), we came across this beautiful bison family. At first I thought, “Aw, baby cow!” Then I remembered reading that baby bison are referred to as “red dogs” and did a quick double take. These massive animals are majestic and definitely meant to be admired from a distance! Quite the way to start the day! 📷: @jason_gerhart

Today’s #watercolorwarriors theme was “Bison” This massive thundering herbivore was declared the official mammal of the United States of America in 2016 which is super awesome since they were almost hunted to extinction in the 1800’s. In fact the last of the truly wild bison from that era survive today in Yellowstone National Park. Seeing a massive heard grazing in that amazing land really feels like you’re taking a peek into a slice of the Pleistocene. These giant piles of floof and muscle are high on the list of my favorite animals. If you want to see some locally in the Chicagoland region, I definitely recommend taking a trip down to Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie. They have reintroduced bison into that area and they are just spectacular! 👏🏽 #bison #watercolorwednesday #yellowstonenationalpark #midewinnationaltallgrassprairie #nationalmammal #northamerica #sketchbook #joeandsarahart #watercolor

Meet the bison herd! Owned by Lehigh County, the #lvzoo assists in caring for these large mammals. In the early 1900’s, General Harry Trexler moved 8 bison to the preserve to save these animals from extinction, as he feared for their plummeting numbers. For decades, a large bison herd was allowed to flourish on the Preserve. Today, the herd is made up of 14 animals. The predominant male of the herd is Big Boy. Recently, we welcomed two new calves to the herd, one born on June 6th and other on June 25th. The oldest bison is 18 years old! The herd enjoys pine tree enrichments, watermelon, pumpkins, rolling in the dust to stay cool, and wallowing in mud. Be sure to visit the bison on the Trexler Nature Preserve by crossing the ford after your visit to the #lvzoo! #meetourmammals #nationalmammal

Bison are among the many megafauna that roam the “American Serengeti” of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, home to the largest concentration of mammals in the Lower 48.

Wallowing (rolling in the dirt) is much like a dust bath. Bison do this to provide some relief from bug bites, help shed their winter coats, or even just for fun! During mating season it is also a way for males to leave their scent and display their strength.

Day 5, 1000 miles later- what better way to get back than back through Yellowstone and over the Beartooth Highway?!?! Had some bbq in West, saw some bison, a beautiful bull elk in velvet, 3 bears (what?!?!? In July?!?! Crazy!!), then had a little walkabout high atop some beautiful mountains! Our mini-road trip was nothing less than a success!! #jobwelldone #ynp #yellowstonepledge #somepeopleneedtolearnaboutit #nationalmammal #bison #blackbears #beartoothpass #bearstooth #alpinemeadows #myheartisinmontana #the406

By the 1890s, there were only 1000 American bison left on the continent. Because of protection efforts, their numbers have come back and are now not a conservation concern.

Happy 4th of July!
The American Bison is the national mammal of the USA. Commonly called buffalo, these guys are actually bison and are a little different physiologically from buffalo like the water buffalo and Cape buffalo. Regardless, these large grazing animals are gorgeous!

So we had a somewhat successful morning on the ranch today.
We had 3 Bison penned up to tag this morning. When we got here this morning we had another 3 hanging out in another pen, so we closed their gate also.

We got 2-6 Bison tagged today. One would not cooperate with us so he was let free until another day.

Video coming this weekend of some of the tagging.

Rewilding Denver one new bison calf at a time: since the ‘07 return of wild bison to the shortgrass prairie at Rocky Mountain National Wildlife Refuge, our national mammal has thrived, dropping new calves more or less on schedule each spring. The growing herd has expanded their territory throughout much of the refuge - Back when I made this image in 2010, I knew the head count and have long since lost track. Reintroduced black-footed ferrets are doing well in the same habitat as the bison, songbirds, badgers, mule deer, burrowing owls and everything else. Something about good grass...protect prairie. #bison #nationalmammal #usfws #rockymountainarsenal #ilcp_photographers #publicland #ourpubliclands

Did you know in 2016 the American Bison was named national mammal of the US? It is also the largest weighing up to 2,000 lbs and standing 6 feet tall. Bison are big, but they’re also fast and can run up to 35 miles per hour. You can judge a bison’s mood by its tail. When it hangs down and switches naturally, the bison is usually calm. If the tail is standing straight up, watch out! It may be ready to charge.

Uncaring of the traffic that flows by, unmoved by the people who watch by, the bisons walk like the tycoons of the Yellowstone National Park.
It was a thrill to watch the national mammal of the United States at Yellowstone National Park :)

"The Matriarch"
Have you ever been stalked by a Bison? Its rather eerie. Back in April, I went out to explore Johnsons Plateau beyond the prairie dog town and to capture a particular shot, I wanted, but it didnt happen this time. I started out on the western edge of the P.Dog town and wandered along the edges making my way east, taking a few snaps of flowers and of the female group that was anywhere from 75-100 meters or more away. At some point I caught her attention, she slowly moved the grazing herd towards my direction. The slow movement of the herd really wasnt noticable at first, but I did realize that evening wasnt going to be normal. I was ignoring the small herd for the most part. The golden hour had hit and the elk were out along some outter valleys. I was keeping an eye on them, then I spotted my new target for the evening. A bull with antlers still attached, with golden light!
By this time the herd was still moving north, and I had moved north as well. I knew something was a bit different, but she never showed any signs of agitation or other typical Bison behavioral signs. I started to move towards the elk, being blinded by the sunset, keeping an eye on her. The gap between us became slightly less then comfortable, as I had lost the elks location and she was coming westward now. I decided I needed put more space between us, so with camera in hand and a 15lb pack, I jogged through some sagebrush to the otherside. Hoping she wouldnt bother anymore. I dropped down into a small draw and back up the otherside to leave her sight. I popped back up and and looked behind me. She was standing there looking at me from the sagebrush. Luckily a Bull Bison was there. She turned back, but still kept an eye on me. I was rather relieved when the persuate was over. She turned the herd back north and I made my way across the P.Dog town, to be meet by a coyote from earlier.

Yellowstone National Park is the only place in the U.S. where bison have continuously lived since prehistoric times. What makes Yellowstone’s bison so special is that they’re the pure descendants (free of cattle genes) of early bison that roamed our country’s grasslands. As of July 2015, Yellowstone’s bison population was estimated at 4,900 -- making it the largest bison population on public lands. https://on.doi.gov/1T1qABI

It’s National Get Outdoors Day! Explore Catalina’s interior and you might see a bison. (Please don’t approach any animals you encounter.) Hiking and biking permits are free through the @catalinaconservancy.

Yellowstone gifted us with some of the most up close and personal encounters with Bison we could have hoped for. It’s dangerous to approach an animal of this size on foot, (a tourist was gored one of the days we were there) but the van provides the perfect blind to observe from!
