POTD: A Hard Country to Love

A Hard Country to Love
American Prairie Reserve
2021

The part of Montana where the American Prairie Reserve is located has been experiencing exceptional drought conditions this year. (Exceptional drought is the worst of five levels of drought possible.) Still, the bison we saw seemed to be doing fine, at least to our untrained eyes. Perhaps we just can’t see the effects the drought is having on them or maybe their good condition just points to how well suited they are for living in this part of the country.
