  • Bison coming to my area

    Bison are soon to be reintroduced to my area this upcoming spring. No hunting for awhile and fish and game weren't completely helpful, but not worthless on the info provided either. How have the bison affected the area near delta? We are being told they won't interfere with moose. I'm just curious.

    That's good news, and it's about time!

    Moose are browsers, bison are grazers. For the most part they don't eat the same things, nor should they be in competition for habitat in general.

      Excellent. The general consensus is no one knows much about them. F&G kept pushing the food source angle even though they have no idea when hunting will be allowed. I'm excited to see them in the wild.

        Have done some flying over the Innoko area. Even did a little lake hopping marten trapping there one year. After spending all last winter chasing Delta Bison, I'm not so sure the Innoko is that suited to Bison. Some might survive, but doubt you'll ever get much of a huntable population.
        But Hey...........it's not like I have a college degree or anything!

          A lot of the old timers. Like truly subsistence guys don't think they will have much chance either. Flooding is notorious. Winters are harsh. We shall see.

              Is this the Wood Bison they have been talking about reintroducing? If so, they may not need the same type habitat as the Bison that are already here.
              Hunt Ethically. Respect the Environment.
