This chapter describes the author's efforts to study bison interactions with wolves, focusing on three geographical areas—those with wolves, those without, and those where bison were once predator-free but now experienced predation. Options of the first sort were limited to northern Canada. The Yukon and Alberta each had about four to five thousand wolves; the Northwest Territories some ten thousand. Areas without wolves were plentiful south of Canada. Only Yellowstone and the Tetons offered the third scenario—bison that had been wolf-free but were so no longer.
