Buline Ranch

2021 Landowner of the Year - Lander Region

Landowners: James and Pam Buline

A cow/calf cattle operation where Willow Creek meets the Wind River east of Crowheart. The Buline Ranch is home to mule deer, white-tailed deer, mountain lion, elk, moose, black and grizzly bears, pronghorn, wolves, waterfowl and many other nongame species.

The Bulines are active land stewards by making improvements on their deeded ranch and leased public land pastures that benefit wildlife. Those improvements include fence modifications, water storage improvements and riparian protection. The Bulines also helped reconstruct fences that were damaged during the Lava Mountain Fire on the Shoshone National Forest in 2016.

The family allows access to private land for hunting of deer, elk, geese and pronghorn. It donates money from landowner coupons from each hunter to the Wyoming Animal Damage Management Board. The Bulines continually work with Game and Fish and others to promote good land management practices, resolve wildlife conflicts and enhance relationships.
