“Near what is now the Duff Ranch, Cody and Comstock competed in a day-long ‘Champion Buffalo Hunter of the Plains’ contest. Cody won 69-48, and thereafter was known worldwide as Buffalo Bill. In 1882 he launched his ‘Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show’ featuring legends such as Annie Oakley, Sitting Bull, Red Cloud, and Frank North. Touting re-enactments of Custer’s Last Stand, the show toured the East Coast, England, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, and Belgium. The size, weight, and aggressive disposition of the buffalo ensured that one of these beasts actually appeared in Bill’s Wild West circus.”
