The description states:

“Nebraska’s beautiful Wild-Cat Hills” near Scottsbluff, Nebraska. Deer, buffalo and other animals live here protected on the game reserve.

–The buffalo referred to are in fact American Bison, and not mentioned is the significant mountain lion population that populates this area of Nebraska and no other.

This card likely dates from the 1950s.
