Good Bison

American Bison
Linking to Good Fences

If good fences make good neighbors, it stands to reason good bison fences make for good bison. Or at least less cranky bison.

Gotta be sturdy fences for bison. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be caught in a bison stampede? Maybe I watched too many westerns when I was a kid.

Judy said...

Have to have a strong fence for them. Great shots.

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

Wow shots! Is this a bison park? I've not seen them in a protected spot before, only out wild in the national parks. I wonder if that fence is strong enough- those bison look mighty strong!
Thanks for info on your tip mag- I need all the help I can find!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

You need a good strong fence for those guys!

Pamela Gordon said...

That really IS a good fence. The posts put close together and the heavy wire should keep those beautiful bison contained. Great photos!

Margaret Adamson said...

Love your Bison photos. There are some in an enclosure over at Fort Peck, but they aren't always close enough for good photos.

Karen said...

Your bison look better contained than the ones in my fence shot! Magnificent beasts aren't they!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Or for sure the fences will keep the people watching happier! Lovely bison. Thanks for sharing. I'm almost afraid to say I'll look for the link to your magazine. Because I am afraid you'll do a test to see if I get any better ;>) Seriously, what a very nice thing for you to do.

Jeanne said...

Nice shots of the furry beasties.
Thanks for the tip on the magazine. I could spend all day in there.

DeniseinVA said...

Great shots of the bison Brian. I understand they are a little crankier than other beasts. One of hubby's cousins has a herd in North Dakota and we have heard the tales :)
Thanks for the tip on the magazine. I will check that out.

Karen S. said...

Oh yeah, that's a good strong fence for them. They are such a treat to see.

Gail Dixon said...

Those bison are so beautiful! Magnificent creatures. I was using Flipboard until I found Zite--that one I seem to use more these days.

bailey-road.com said...

Now, that is some fence! The bison are magnificent.

Debbie said...

Great bison and such an awesome looking fence!!

Alica said...

Now that is one strong looking fence! Good thing, too...those are some strong looking bison!

Janey and Co. said...

We see a lot of Buffalo out in Colorado. Guess I have never given the fences a second look. They are so strong..makes sense that they would need a strong fence.

Love Flipboard.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

You fences look quite a bit more substantial than one of the other contributors; they are beautiful animals.

Thanks for the flipboard link

barbara l. hale said...

Bison are interesting creatures. And I am seeing more of them in the grocery these days. Oh, well...

edenhills said...

Now that is an impressive fence!

Ruth Kelly said...

I have one photo of bison; I should have added it today but next time. Yours are great and close up; mine were far away with them walking in the snow.

nookworm said...

Now that is a fence! And a good one for sure! Nice pictures.

Susan said...

Good sturdy fencing - magnificent animals.
Thanks for visiting my Good Fences #1, I didn't link on this one, but just wanted to pop over and say Hi.
Appreciate the link to your Photography Tips magazine too - I'm going to enjoy reading that.
Cheerio now :D)

Carletta said...

Coolest fence find I've seen this week! :)

Jenny Short said...

Beautiful photos of bison and fences.

TheChieftess said...

Nice shots!! Reminds me of the preserve in Alaska for wild animals that have been hurt and can't live in the wild...

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

What amazing animals! It sure is nice to get out and about and see things like this!
