Harsh conditions in winter force these animals to search for food in various locations. Deep snow can be a death knell as these grazers need lots of food to keep them in top condition. Wolves pick off the weak.

It looks pretty bleak Ron - I do feel sorry for these animals but I guess they're adapted to these harsh conditions.

Very bleak, Ron, very reminiscent of the 'Yellowstone' programme. Were you tempted to turn the bison round? Tongue

A stark winter landscape Ron, which enhances the knowledge that this animal is trying to survive.

We have bison in Texas too, here they struggle with drought. I am so happy this animal is making a comeback in our fauna. They were hunted almost to extinction for the sheer pleasure of the kill.
