That may be the case of the earlier bison ranches, but nowadays the bison haven't been any significant problem for neighbors. The ranches in SW Montana with even more bison than Yellowstone manage and contain the bison effectively. Any hunting is pretty structured. There are no bow hunters running around willy nilly slinging arrows at numerous bison. That's just not the case.I grew up around buffalo and their general disregard for barb wire fences. They are kind of rough on neighboring ranchers.
I had a project one year on the Ft Hall reservation and they had a buffalo herd for harvest. I inquired as to their experience and was told they had the first hunt with bows and arrows and ended up with a collection of really agitated pin cushions. Said it was rifle after that.
Not anymore than the wild free roaming elk on huge outfitted ranches. The difference is that the elk can and do cross any kind of fence, whereas the bison tend to stay within those huge vast pastures, which are a far cry from the typical "high fence" hunting "ranches".Are all of APR’s bison behind high fences?
