SEASONS

The Grand Teton Park buffalo herd can be seen throughout the year as it wanders from place to place in search of forage. It is most often found in the area between Cunninghams cabin, antelope flats, and the town of Kelly. In the winter it is usually on the far eastern side of the elk refuge. Inquire at the NPS office for their current location.

TIMES

Like many animals buffalo are most active in the hours just after sunrise and just before sunset. Buffalo are extremely dangerous and historically kill many more tourists than grizzly bears. Keep your distance. They are not cows!
