This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on prehistoric hunting in the North American Great Plains and Rocky Mountains. The plains and mountains together truly provided a home for the large mammals and their prehistoric human predators, but many differences in archaeological materials recovered from the plains and those found in the mountains remain unexplained and are waiting to be resolved. This chapter also suggests that there is a delicate balance between preservation and loss of evidence of prehistoric human hunting.

Keywords: prehistoric hunting; North American Great Plains; Rocky Mountains; large mammals; human predators; archaeological materials
