    PREFERRED HABITAT: The primary habitat requirements for American bison are adequate forage, water, and space. American bison thrive in open grasslands, meadows, and parklands. When available, American bison use forested areas for shade and to escape insects. These areas also furnish forage when open areas are covered by "deep" snow. The Wildlife Damage Compensation Program has two major components — compensation for crop damage and compensation for livestock predation. The crop damage component reduces financial losses incurred by producers for damage caused by migratory waterfowl and big game to crops, honey products, and leafcutter bee products.
