Custer State Park to hold bison auction
The 2013 Custer State Park Fall Classic Bison Auction will be Saturday at the park corrals where 331 head will be sold.
The auction will begin at 10 a.m. Mountain time at the Custer State Park Buffalo corrals, located 15 miles east of Custer on Highway 16A and then nine miles south on the Wildlife Loop Road. Signs will be posted to assist in locating the corrals.
New this year, the auction will also be online at www.DVAuction.com.
For the past 48 years, the park has made its surplus bison available for sale to the private sector. A significant amount of park revenue comes from the bison sale and goes toward continued operations of the state park system.
