We couldn't handle a population like that now days. People complain about rat snakes and moles in their yard. Imagine a wild herd of buffalo going through a subdivision. The HOA president would have a fit.


Some people just bitch about everything, I don't worry too much about them. We would have better management practices today to help keep them in check. We have bison here (in AK) and a bison hunting season but the herds are managed.

You also have moose and bear, so buffalo ain't that much bigger if any. Folks down here want nature to end where they want it to end. Mowed lawns and everything paved. Nature should be in its assigned spot to go visit every so often. Being inconvenienced by a few wandering buffalo wouldn't fly in most of the country.

There are quite a few manged herds in N. America. A lot more than people think. Around 500,000 still in N. America.

Their milieu is open grasslands so I doubt they would ever be prolific in the East again.

Let's not turn this in to a Native American vs. European thing.

Head-Smashed-In-Buffalo-Jump

Man is inherently greedy. He wants to take as much as he can, whether for survival or profit. Long-term thinking usually doesn't enter in to the decision process. Thankfully, by learning from the sins of the past, some people have evolved in their thinking.

On a lighter note, I'm glad I didn't have to skin all those bastards in OP's picture.

These were pretty awful but...the population of bison was still in the 60 million range before European expansion to the Americas.

And without the aid of a front end loader to hoist them up. That's plenty skinnin.

All numbers aside. I would love to hunt these things one day. If you've never had bison meat, it's delicious. It's basically a lean beef.

How much do you want to pay. I'll buy a calf, raise it, and you come shoot it. We will have a OBGT BBQ with it

Love bison meat. Much of the taste depends on what it eats. More grass less corn has a sharper flavor just like beef.

Ted's Montana Grill

Ted's Montana Grill began with two American entrepreneurs and a dream. As a business leader, philanthropist, environmentalist and avid outdoorsman, Ted Turner decided to share his love of Big Sky Country and its tradition of hearty food. He also wanted to celebrate an American icon: The bison who once thundered across the Great Plains. Ted joined forces with famed restaurateur George McKerrow Jr., a pioneer and leader in casual dining, and together they created Ted's Montana Grill.

The first Ted's Montana Grill opened in Columbus, Ohio, in January of 2002. Ten years later, every Ted's is a proud tribute to the ingredients, meals and hospitality that define the Great American West while preserving and building the bison herds in America. By featuring the biggest bison menu in the world, Ted’s Montana Grill has made bison a popular menu choice today in dining, providing incentive for ranchers to actively grow their herds.

I've mainly had ground bison and it's pretty good.

The eight heifer calves sold Sunday averaged $650 per head, compared to $506 per head at last year's stock-show sale. Average weight this year was 511 pounds, for an average price of $1.27 per pound.

Article from 2009. Prices about like beef. Maybe more.
