Raymond Wildlife Area Bison Herd

They’re getting used to grazing on shortgrass instead of tallgrass, and will soon be searching for places to give birth to their young. A herd of bison is settling in for its first year in a new home at the Raymond Wildlife Area east of Flagstaff. Last fall, the Arizona Game and Fish Department ushered 46 bison from Wind Cave National Park in South Dakota to northern Arizona. These plains bison are a different genetic lineage from the animals they replaced.

The Game and Fish Commission bought 9,400 acres of deeded land that became the Raymond Wildlife Area in 1942 for pronghorn. The area—now around 15,000 acres—became known as “Buffalo Ranch” after bison were moved down from House Rock Valley on the Arizona Strip.
