During our trip to Salt lake City, Utah last year, my wife Jean and I had the opportunity to visit Antelope Island, which is on the Great Salt Lake Utah State Park, consisting of 28,000 acres. It was in 1893, the American Bison (Buffalo) were placed on this island and now today they have a herd of 600 + free ranging buffalo. Each year they have an annual Buffalo round-up, allowing visitors to see the techniques of Buffalo ranching. They are herded to the North end of the island, where they are herded through corrals, vaccinated and examined for general health in early November. Besides the Buffalo, the range land are shared by Pronghorn and Big Horn Sheep. I have attached what I feel is my best shot of a Buffalo grazing.
