June 2008 (PDF) - Harper's Magazine - "They Shoot Buffalo, Don't They?" by Chris Ketcham, Journalist Chris Ketchum spent a few weeks with BFC in the field last spring, working on a story for Harper's Magazine and, finally, his story is out! We'd love to share it with you, but Harper's online magazine is subscription only, so we cannot provide a link. But please be sure to pick up a copy of the June issue of Harper's Magazine and share it with the people you know. Thousands of Americans read Harper's and are bound to learn about the insane mismanagement of America's last wild bison population.
