One of the best day trips in Western Montana is a visit to the National Bison Range in Moiese, Montana on the Flathead Indian Reservation. The Bison Range has a nice visitor's center and a self-guided driving tour you can take for some of the best scenery in Montana and lots of wildlife.

The National Bison Range is administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as part of the National Wildlife Refuge System. It was established in 1908 and is one of the oldest Wildlife Refuges in the nation. As its name implies, the Refuge was established to support a population of American bison. It is home to about 350-500 of these animals.

Buffalo at the Bison RangeKevin and Kelsey recently spent an afternoon at the Bison Range taking wildlife photos and were able to photograph antelope, deer, elk, and of course, bison in a single afternoon. Not to mention some great photos of the Mission Mountains, one of the most spectacular mountain ranges in Montana.

Summer hours at the park are: weekdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekends and holidays. Red Sleep Mountain Drive is open daily 6:30 a.m.; start drive by 7 p.m. to finish before dark.

For directions to the bison range, information on fees or other questions, visit the website for the National Bison Range.
