Annual Buffalo Auction Takes Place in Custer State Park

Two hundred forty-four head of bison will be up for auction at the 2016 Custer State Park Fall Classic Bison Auction on November 19, states a news release from the State of South Dakota. The auction will take place at the new Custer State Park Visitor Center, located 15 miles east of the City of Custer on Highway 16A.

Custer State Park has held bison auctions for the past 51 years. This year, the auction will include video bids. Buffalo Herd Manager Chad Kramer hopes that the video auction will help the park reach a wider customer base.
