When I was home we had a neighbors buffalo bull get in with some of our cows and the only way they could handle him was shooting him. He did breed one of our cows. We kept the hiefier calf. She was red with brindle stripping and a white face. She had a head and front end like a buffalo, but not the hair. She didn't calf till she was three. She would leave the cows and go and calf. Then bring the calf back to the cows. Dad rode for three days looking for her one year. Finally found her calf on one side of the fence and she on another three pastures from the cows. We only got her worked once, that was when she was a calf. Get her in a close pen and she would clear the fence in a single bound. To sort her to work calves in the fall, she would stand back and watch the cows sort then make a run for it. Didn't want to be in her way or she would freighttrain you. Once she was out of the pen she would find her calf in the pen and follow it all the way to the chute. She wasn't mean just in the way, you just worked around her. That was the closest we ever could get to her. kept her for years. I'm sure she died there.

I went and found him-he got in our big swamp pasture so I guess he's ours till he decides to leave. I had the crosshairs on him_I'm wondering if I'm gong to regret taking a Leupold snapshot of him lol. He's in his ancestral grounds anyway lots of buff skulls out there.
What are the laws in Canada regarding Buffalo? Does the fact that he is "in his ancestral grounds" :???: take precedence over your ownership of your property? Can you say "Beefalo?" :lol:

Ah Hah! You CAN say "Beefalo"!
