Neighbor critters

My neighbor to the east and the north raises bison on his place. I'm not sure but I think he just bought another place over east and now has 90,000 acres. He runs about 5000 buffs on this. He's been taking out his cross-fences and I think his pastures now average about 15,000 acres. Eventually he will have no cross fencing at all. This view of the hillside is on his westernmost section, nearest to me. It's about a mile away in this picture.

Buffalo are wanderers. They come by here from time to time, but there is no predicting when that will be. The last time I saw them on this hillside was in the early summer.

I Can hardly conceive of owning 90,000 acres. I wish I did, though.

That looks so much like western Nebraska.

At this point I'd be happy with 90 acres. :)

It's nice to know that there are still wide open spaces in this beautiful country.

Rio, I kinda-sorta think your "neighbor" could certainly afford to have all his cross fencing taken out in a couple of months if he really wanted to, and everybody within six counties would be gainfully employed for the entire time.
