Bison are big, tough, and symbolize the spirit of the American west. But in this piece, I wanted to show the hardship that they have endured. Winters are rough in Yellowstone. These bulls are trudging onward through feet of heavy snow, against a strong icy wind, in search of food. There are other trails in the snow. Perhaps trials from a wolf pack, waiting for the weak to succumb. Its a painful time to live through, but they will endure, as they have done through centuries of hardship. – Abraham Hunter
