Sunday marked the final day for bison hunting on the National Elk Refuge in Jackson Hole. Preliminary estimates from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department place the success rate of hunters at 240 bison. Refuge Biologist Eric Cole says if the count proves to be true, the post-harvest population of the Jackson bison herd is now between 700 to 750 animals. That is significantly down from last year’s count of 855 animals. Still, Cole says the objective population is 500 animals. A final classification count of bison is scheduled for next month.
