-INVITATION TO BID- Th e Oglala Sioux Parks & Recreation Authority invites bids from bison producers to purchase excess yearling bison. Potential bidders must have a truck and trailer ready to pick up bison upon completion of our roundups in Slim Buttes, Yellow Bear and South Pastures. Once buffalo go through our chute and are weighed, they are the winning bidder's responsibility. Also when buffalo are going through the chute, our tags will be cut off.

OSPRA will not be responsible for any injuries or death of buffalo while they are in the pens.
