Come on a Bison Quest - Experience of a lifetime in one day - Bozeman

For an unforgettable Western adventure, join internationally traveled wildlife biologists, Dr Craig and Pam Knowles, in a close encounter with the Wild Echo bison herd high in Montanas mountains. Relax in the tipi and enjoy a complimentary "tea" surrounded by bison, then learn about the behavior, history and ecology of the largest land mammal in North America (yup, even bigger than grizzly bears!) during a "hands on" afternoon.

Start the afternoon with an introduction to the Wild Echo Bison herd in the high country of the Big Belt mountains just a little over an hour north of Bozeman, Montana.

When you arrive at the ranch headquarters around 1pm, well have to transfer all of you into our 4 wheel drive ranch truck (we dont allow any private vehicles around the herd because of the damage potential) and well head out to find the herd. Well introduce you to Warf, the herd bull, and the dominant cows with their calves. Luckily, since most of the moms are very used to us, they come up to the truck to get their share of the oats - and baby comes right along with them. There arent many places you can sit and watch baby bison play tag with each other just a stones throw away!

Your Bison Quest adventure runs from 1pm to 5pm with a complimentary "tea" and snacks (including bison meatballs).
