Snowy November day at National Bison Range
A beautiful picture of a deer sitting under a tree in the snow at the Montana National Bison Range a nature reserve on the Flathead Indian Reservation in western Montana established in 1908 for the conservation of American bison. Formerly called the National Bison Range, the size of the bison herd at the BR is between 350 and 500. Established as a National Wildlife Refuge in 1908, the BR consists of approximately 18,800 acres (7,600 ha) within the Montana valley and foothill grasslands. The management was transferred from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service back to the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes in 2021.
