The bison rut is winding down for the year. And in this way, in fact in all ways, 2020 has been a doozy. But as exciting and scary as the bison rutting season is in modern times, imagine how it must have been in pre-Lewis and Clark Montana - heck, pre-Columbian Montana.
Back then, scientists estimate some 30-60 million bison roamed North America. Can you imagine some 15 - 30 million male bison, nearly every one them ornery and agitated? It must have been a holy terror to witness, something akin to 10 or 12 Godzillas charging across the landscape.
Of course, back then, nobody would have been around to film it and share it online!
