We have been fortunate for a lot of things, but having the same initials “JG” felt kismit (fate). It helped us name our future endeavor JG Bison. To us, it's so much more than a name or a ranch - it's a venue for educating about and advocating for our beloved bison.
“Bison are such magnificent animals. They are majestic creatures that are usually calm and relaxed, but willing to fight strongly and aggressively for what they want. The mentality of bison is something all should strive for. They stand their ground, have a tough hide, keep moving on, cherish wide open spaces, have a strong spirit, roam wild and free, and let the chips fall where they may. To be in the presence of bison is a very powerful and relaxing feeling and to experience that and share with others is my why.”
“Bison continually teach me about life in a profound way. I often lose sight of what is important & fill my head with draining worry. Nature is hard, but the outcome of that challenge should be a deeper appreciation for the good times. Bison help me simplify natural complexity and focus on the present - giving me a higher level of appreciation for my own existence. To be around that, to care for that, and to share it with others is my why.”
