Bison vs. Buffalo: The Beef

Images: Wikipedia


Bison vs. buffalo. Are there differences? You bet! What are they? Glad you asked!

Well, for starters, Brewster Higley got things wrong when he wrote “Home on the Range,” since buffalo do not in fact naturally roam in the West—or the North American continent, or the Western Hemisphere, for that matter. You’ll find water buffalo in Southeast Asia and Cape buffalo in Africa, while bison live here in North America and parts of Europe.

Besides locale, there are 3 physical features to look for:

1. Bison have a shoulder hump, while buffalo don’t. The hump gives bison their tank-like appearance and plowing abilities in large snowdrifts.
2. Bison have smaller, sharper horns, while buffalo have larger ones, as long as 6 feet!
3. Bison are bearded, while buffalo are beard-less. Gillette or Dollar Shaving Co. should jump on that, just saying.

Season’s Greetings!

The Holiday Season is many people’s favorite time of the year. It’s a time for reflection, spending time with loved ones, giving, and planning for what’s ahead. SeeJacksonHole has exceeded expectations and, in large measure, it’s because of those who enjoy what we do and provide, like you, reader!

Our thoughts turn gratefully to you for choosing to spend a portion of your day with us when there’s so many others vying for your time.

In this spirit, we—the entire SeeJacksonHole Team—want to take this chance to wholeheartedly thank you. Thank you for your time. Thank you for your support. Thank you for continuing to look forward to what we get to share with you.

We send you our warmest wishes. We hope that you and your loved ones have a joyous Holiday Season filled with lots of holiday cheer. May the eggnog flow…and if you don’t like eggnog, hot chocolate. With marshmallows. Lots of marshmallows. It is a marshmallow world in the winter, after all. (And a hot toddy or two—hey, you’ve got to keep the cockles of your heart warm, right?) Oh, and don’t bother asking Santa for an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle—he’ll tell you you’ll shoot your eye out! Trust us.

May New Years Day provide you with encouragement and optimism in looking ahead to 2018. May the fish you catch be “this big”, and may you strike gold.

Happy Holidays from our homes to yours!!!
