Robert Magnan, director of the Fort Peck Tribe’s fish and game department, as well as its buffalo program, searched for buffalo from the cab of his truck.
The “cultural” herd of buffalo descends from animals that were killed to near-extinction in the late 19th century.
Dana Buckles took aim at a buffalo that will feed the extended family of Larry Beauchamp, a tribal elder, through the winter. Mr. Magnan is at his side.
Mr. Beauchamp placed sage grass in the fallen buffalo’s mouth.
Mr. Magnan cleaned and butchered the buffalo in a nearby hayfield.
Mr. Buckles, right, and his stepson, Roger White Jr., ate a piece of the buffalo’s liver.
Mr. Magnan used an electric saw to quarter the buffalo.
A member of the hunting team pulled the bison’s hide onto a truck.
