300 Bison Detained

StephensCreek

A group of about 300 bison was hazed into the Stephens Creek bison capture facility on Monday after they wandered nearly 10 miles during the night onto private and public land north of Corwin Springs on Saturday and Sunday. Last week, 88 bison had been released from the facility and moved south into the park. Stephens Creek which is located inside the northern boundary of Yellowstone National Park, northwest of Gardiner, Montana, is operated under the Interagency Bison Management Plan. Under that plan, bison can be captured at the capture facility when hazing bison back into the park becomes unsafe or ineffective. Captured bison will be tested for exposure to brucellosis and seropositive bison will be shipped to slaughter with meat from bison to be distributed to tribal groups and regional food banks. Seronegative bison will be held in the facility for spring release back into the park.

But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
