American bisons are bovine beasts often associated with the American wilderness. They are also deeply connected to the history of early American settlers and the Indian natives. Thought to have numbered up to millions, the population of American bisons dwindled to thousands due to careless human activities.

In order to protect these endangered beasts, the National Bison Range was created in 1908 in Western Montana as a sanctuary for the American Bisons. With a relatively small size of herd totaling up to 500 animals, the 18,500-acre sanctuary serves as bison research center in the US today.

The National Bison Range is frequented yearly by visitors, usually for sightseeing and academic purposes. The reserve has a visitor center and two viewing area trails. Aside from bisons, other animals can be found inside the reserve, such as elks, bighorn sheep, and mule deer.
