The famous Triple U Buffalo Ranch northwest of Fort Pierre, SD, the setting for key parts of the 1990 movie “Dances with Wolves,” has been sold to Ted Turner.
The Triple U Standing Butte Ranch will be about the 19th ranch Turner owns.
According to his Ted Turner Enterprises website, he owns three ranches in Argentina and 15 in seven states: Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska, Montana, Oklahoma, New Mexico and South Dakota. The 3,000 or so buffalo on the Triple U will add to the 51,000 head of buffalo Turner already owns, making him the world’s number one buffalo owner.
With 2 million acres, plus this added 45,000, Turner is considered the second-largest private owner of land in the United States, just behind his friend and fellow cable TV mogul, John Malone, said to own 2.2 million acres.
