Years ago, my wife and I visited "Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump" in Southern Alberta.
There is a very good museum there.

The American Prairie Reserve is a group of Over-Seas tree huggers with more money than they will ever spend, that have the ultimate goal of Turning North East Montana, and eventually a large portion of the state, into a "Jurassic Park" of sorts to mimic what you would have seen here in the 1750's.

My Brother and nearly every Rancher like him, and residents of the small towns in that area, are fighting this at every angle. The APR wants to force everyone off their land, out of their small towns, and out of their proposed "Serengeti" regardless of how much land you own or how many generations your family has been there. A few landowners have actually sold to them because they offer unbelievable sums of money for these properties, especially that which boarders any BLM or Government Lands in the area. The land will not be responsibly grazed because they will rip out all existing fences and any other improvements inside the boundary. Our Beef industry, and that of neighboring states, will be at risk because these Buffalo will not be vaccinated against Brucellosis, Mad Cow Disease, Hoof and Mouth Disease, or any other Bovine diseases. They want it "Natural".

Google "Save A Cowboy, Stop The American Prairie Reserve" to educate yourselves and see if you can help. This is a fight we must win! If they get their way, Where does it stop?

The tree huggers here got the spring bear hunting season eliminated. Now, they're complaining about bears in their back yards. They're so stupid.

You have to be an Indian to use that method. :)

I have some Comanche blood in there somewhere Pete.  ;D

Never really did the math on degree of blood. One of my great great something-or-others was married to Quanah Parker... Which isn't saying much, he had several wives... 8? 9?

Only reason I know is that my dad's folks are Mormon and they traced a lot of the family's genealogy. Somebody in the family has a picture of him sitting at the table with several of the wives and my ancestor is amongst them. If I remember correctly, her children were from a previous marriage and she and the Chief had none together... So I don't get to claim any of his bloodline. Lol

I'll see if I can find out who has the picture... It's nothing fancy, just mildly interesting.

Now I just need that buffalo herd and a cliff. Lol

make sure your horse doesn't follow the buffalo over the cliff. They're dumb enough to do it. It's better to ride a mule. They're smart and won't go over.

Pete,
Also, don't stand at the bottom of the cliff waiting for them to drop.
It is said that's how "Head smashed in" buffalo jump got it's name!

I assume that was a translation from what the indigenous people called it.

The problem is the traditional muzzleloader community is too small to have any power. We can fight the best we can but in the end we're going to lose.

But- FIGHT YOU MUST!  as long as it takes. Your offspring need to carry the fight - as long as it takes.

This is the never-ending push against us, we must endeavour to perverse!  A well loved and indigenous - F- that - he was a INDIAN and proud of it, said those words in a movie just recently - well maybe 20 or is it 30? years ago. He was right- NEVER stop fighting for justice. The Lord is on your side.

With due respect, I do believe you meant to use the word “persevere”?

oh- dang-nabbit - should have checked the spelling - must have been late & maybe too much medicine down the throat tube.

LOL- just checked the time of that post: 9:59 and that is exactly 2hrs. slow to our time. It was late. Quite possibly, I should have been in bed,
not squinting at the type with one eye closed. ::)
