The hunting of American Bison
got a renewal today. The first hunt of the buffalo, in 15 years, began with a Belgrade, MT, boy killing a bull with 4 shots
, shortly after the hunt began. The 15 year hiatus on hunting Bison in Montana was contentious, if not downright nasty
, but that's over now. Montana has allowed Bison hunting outside Yellowstone park, and it's been a media show
. Of course, this really pisses some folks off
, to which hunters claim, "It's like the hunter's become the hunted
". The mountain west of the US has become a battle ground of flowing ideas
, with man against nature, and man against man. The Endangered Species Act, the very thing that has lead us to this event, is under siege
. People begin to notice when critters die.
Welcome to Bison Hunt, 101
