101 Lakes County

Wild Winds Buffalo Preserve

Home to 250 wild bison roaming over 400 acres, Wild Winds Buffalo Preserve is a must visit for anyone traveling in the area.

When visiting in the spring, guests can witness 40-50 proud mothers showing off their new born babies. During the summer, they leisurely graze the preserve. Visiting in September? You’ll get to witness the bulls begin the rutting season where the dominant bulls are challenged by the smaller younger bulls. The largest, bravest, and most powerful bulls will dominate and create through the natural course of nature…a stronger healthier bison herd. Wow!
