The Lazy T Ranch is several thousand acres of pasture, hayfields, rolling hills, and dramatic canyons 10 miles southeast of Ten Sleep, Wyoming, as the crow flies. Or, in this case, as the Airbus AS350 B3e flies. The ranch uses the helicopter to monitor fences and outbuildings, locate cattle, and haul equipment and supplies with a newly acquired hook that can also carry a Bambi Bucket, in case wildfire strikes.
