American Bison Photos, A Fine Art Gallery collection of prints for sale.
Welcome to my gallery of Limited Edition Fine Art Wildlife photographs of Bison aka Buffalo.
The American Bison is often referred to as a Buffalo. For many years, it was depicted on the back of the nickel coin, and referred to as a buffalo nickel. The Bison has been recognized the national mammal of the United States in 2016. Photos of Bison are most easily obtained at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming and the Black Hills of South Dakota.
Estimates indicate as many as 60 million were roaming the west in the early 18th century. Their population decreased to under 1,000 animals due to overhunting and general slaughter, but with current protections there are over 30,000 wild Buffalo in the United States today in protected parks and reserves. There are over 180,000 on private farms being raised for food.
