Geocache Description:

Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam
Where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day
Home, home on the range
Where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day

Interest in raising bison as alternative livestock has increased dramatically in recent years. Bison meat has nutritional advantages for the health-conscious consumer. Research, has established that bison meat contains 25–30% more protein than beef because it has less fat marbling. Bison is lower in calories, fat, and cholesterol than beef, pork, or skinless chicken. Bison meat is usually prepared like beef, but bison has a quicker cooking time and can easily be overcooked.

The American bison is a member of the Bovidae family of ruminants. The misnomer “buffalo” stems from early naturalists’ comparisons of the bison to the African or Asian buffalo. The bison population was just about destroyed in the late 1800s by a government-sanctioned campaign of extermination (intended to starve the “Indians”), but thanks to private efforts by individuals the animal was saved from extinction. There are approximately 350,000 bison in North America today

As you travel along Md. 144 between Hancock Maryland and Sidling Hill you may just come across a herd of Buffalo, keep an eye out on the North side of the road,

Following the listed coordinates will lead you to this buffalo cache.

The micro you seek is just off the main rd (Md 144) and a pull off place is close by this cache.

Some stealth will be required as some muggles live close by and as traffic goes you may have to be aware what or who’s going by.

As always if caching with kids, be mindful of their location at all times.
