Wild Wind Buffalo Preserve, have a close encounter with the American Bison.  Dr. John Tippy was in Yellowstone National park as an 8 year old boy when his parents snapped a picture of their son and an American Bison.  Mr. Tippy begins fulfilling his dream in 1989 with the purchase of 6 bison from Custer State Park in South Dakota, 1 bull and 5 females.  The ranch has become a 400+ acre home to approximately 200 animals that in the 1880s were once near extinction.  The open air ride provides photo opportunities of these majestic creatures; like the bald eagle, the buffalo or American Bison is an enduring symbol of our great nation.
