The National Bison Range, tucked into a Y in the road near Ravalli, Montana, was one of the first wildlife refuges in America. As its name suggests, this 120 year old refuge is home to a large buffalo herd averaging 400 head. The buffalo are not the only animals here; expect to see elk, deer, pronghorn, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, and an occasional black bear. The preserve is spread over 13,000 acres, allowing a good chance to see wildlife. Scattered over the one-way gravel drive are a few short nature trails. The buffalo herd here is not accustom to the heavy traffic as in Yellowstone National Park and visitors should follow park instructions, keeping a cautious eye on these dangerous creatures.
