Engraving on the
right side of the receiver is based on an original
charcoal drawing, “On the Brink” created for this
project by well-known South Dakota artist Ray Kelly.
It portrays a Bison bull and cow looking over an
expanse of prairie that once included thousands of
grazing bison. The question posed by the painting is
whether Bison, then on the brink, would ever again
graze American prairies. The “Return of a Monarch”
Bison Tribute celebrates the fact that, today; Bison
again graze America’s prairies by the thousands.
receiver’s left side is based on a Wild Wings
exclusive Rosemary Millett oil painting entitled
“Dusty Plains Bison”. Millet created the painting
after watching two bison bulls walk across a South
Dakota plain and being amazed at how much dust two
ambling bison could generate.
Your rifle symbolizes one of the last 1,091 bison
remaining in America in 1889. It is unique
opportunity to show your respect for the Bison—named
America’s National Mammal in 2016.
