It is still open, and recently transferred to the owner's grandson who now runs it. He's done a lot in terms of getting the name out with marketing. Very nice guy! Our children love playing together at Bogert Park.

Who cares about beef steaks when you're in Bozeman. Buffalo!

Yup.
Buffalo is very tasty indeed. The best steak I ever ate wasn't beef.

It's no wonder the Indians followed them around drooling.

I had a bison burger for the first time. Very lean.

I've heard it said that beaver is good, and swear it tastes very much like tender beef steak. I've never had beaver, so I'm throwing it out here on the forum just in case somebody has eaten beaver, or would even own up to it.

I tried it once when I was a kid.
It tasted like aspen to me, and smelled like a quaking aspen even stronger. That was my only experiment eating a rodent, and I only did it because a govt. trapper cooked it. Didn't care for it much.

He said later that eating beaver made his scent less noticeable to them when he was setting his traps. He baited his traps with oil from a scent gland that's located next to a beaver's anus, rubbing the gland on a stick of green aspen wood. The scent smelled strongly of aspen.

That's the beaver's preferred wood. They live on the inner lining of the bark, and they will also eat willow, but the aspen is sweet, like a maple, and it tastes the best to them.

The animal and the tree are co-dependent species; the tree grows suckers, so an aspen forest can actually become one giant single root structure with many trunks growing from it. A big grove can be actually one tree genetically.

The beavers, by cutting down the most tender and greenest young stalks, and then burying them in the wet mud of their dams, allow the tree to propagate into new areas where the roots can't travel, so the tree helps the beavers live and the beavers help the aspen groves to spread.

This relationship is common with different species in the mountain west. There are many flowering plants that depend on each other to survive in different co-dependent ways, and animals of all kinds are an equal part of the co-dependency.

Isn't Idaho the state of the beaver?

Nope. It's the Gem state.
