With For Peck rez & the Fort Belknap and the Big Open projects, bison restoration and prairie restoration may achieve a bit of corridor in the Montana plains. Bison are migratory animals, and need wintering places.
The Missouri Breaks country are a marvelous beginning in the restoration of North America!

They will be held back by the private ranching interests, with the important exclusion of Ted Turner, who owns more ranchland acreage than exists in Yellowstone National Park. Ted, "owner" of 55000 bison, more than 1/10 of all living bison, has ranches where bison roam in Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, South Dakota, and Oklahoma and either has introduced or will introduce bison. Importantly, Mr. Turner tolerates wolves, taking pleasure in their presence.

Thanks everyone! I'm glad to see so many others excited over the bisons' rightful return to the plains. Now if only ranchers will not interfere. It really drives home how interdependent all species are. Even the land and vegetation new thriving vibrancy seems to be happily celebrating their return.

Thank you people of Fort Park Reservation for saving and helping the Bison. Now let's keep the government dirty hands away from the Bison.
