Casper, Wyoming, USA

Quick Reference


Bison kill site dating to about 6000 bc. Plano hunters stampeded a herd of about 100 bison and trapped them in a steep‐sided U‐shaped arrangement of sand dunes from which they were unable to escape. Once trapped in this way, the hunters dispatched the beasts using spears.
