Split[edit]

The target article Bison hunting already exists.

Native hunting is pretty much in the target article so I am removing it from this one. Same for 19th century hunts Resurgence in this article is larger than in the target article so I have moved it from here to the target. Same for Bison Hunting Today

why no population history - population before the europenas arrived, massacre by europenas etc etc ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 31.185.47.14 (talk) 01:54, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

Number of surviving bison after slaughter[edit]

In the section "evolution" (bottom of section) it says that 541 bison lived after the great bison hunts ended. According to the section "hunting" some 750 bison survived, and if you add up the numbers in the map of the surviving herds in the same section it comes to 831 bison. How many were there, actually, in 1890? I think it would be best to have ONE number and not three different ones. --Maxl (talk) 20:15, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge Bison[edit]

Someone needs to update this page to include the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge bison, which were one of the most important locations for saving at least the southern population of these animals. They are still there now. This page should state this, and link to this page at least: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wichita_Mountains_Wildlife_Refuge — Preceding unsigned comment added by 59.171.36.227 ([[User talk:11:20, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
