A cool moment under the Teton Range Bison, a three-quarter moon is a little icing on the cake of a grand landscape of Bison (Buffalo).
Bison were hunted nearly to extinction in the late 1800’s and were reduced to less than a thousand animals by the end of the century. Many western legends took part in the big buffalo hunt including Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, Pat Garrett, Wild Bill Hickok, and William F. Cody, just to name a few.
By the end of the 19th century, the bison population in America had further dwindled to only 800 animals. 1905 William Hornaday founded a conservation movement, the American Bison Society, to protect the remaining herds of bison.
