Title: Buffalo jump =Pishkun
Post by: D45/70 on August 16, 2016, 10:30:37 AM
    Thats what the natives called a Buffalo jump  A place that was flat on top and a cliff below. they would cause a stampede and make them run off the cliff then harvest the meat, bones , and hide.
I wonder if there was a "Peta" back then .

Wife and little GD ran out yesterday for a picnic. A good way to spend an hour or two.

Just to the south is a Fishing access on the Missouri river we slipped over there to cool down after the Jump.

We watched a Boy scout troop set out for a float.
There license plate indicated they where not from near by.
 I feel bad , I should have told them even though it's only 10 miles to town no the Highway it is 40 miles on the SLOW river with no take outs!!!
We did the float way back when our kids where small. We started at 6AM and it was midnight when we got to broad water bay in town...

Dang thunder storms would swoop in and blow us back 3 hours of floating in ten minutes!!!
 The river only flows about 2 MPH in this stretch.
