Wild west lives during bison roundup on Antelope Island
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

The 27th annual Antelope Island Bison Roundup began Friday and may extend into Saturday at Antelope Island State Park. Registration to participate on horseback is closed, but the general public should be able to see the roundup from the road on the east side of the island (bring binoculars, spotting scopes and cameras) and around the White Rock Bay Trailhead.

The roundup starts at 9 a.m. each and it may take a while for the riders to push the bison to a point where they can be viewed by the public. Although the roundup is scheduled for two days, it is typically completed the first day.

The bison are wild and can be dangerous. Park officials advise all visitors to keep a safe distance from the animals.

People will get a chance to watch as the bison go through annual exams Nov. 1 and 2 from 8:30 a.m to 4 p.m. at the Bison Corrals.

The annual bison auction on Antelope Island is from 8 a.m. to noon on Nov. 9.

The video with this story was published earlier this year with a story in the Utah Bucket List series. —
