There were no animal bones or other food refuse recovered during the excavation of Redfish Overhang so the shelter lack direct evidence. However, the large number of stone hunting artifacts and the fire hearths suggests that the hunting of big game was the primary dietary focus of the inhabitants. However, migrating salmon in the nearby rivers and lakes would also be expected to have contributed significantly to the diet of anyone visiting the area. Plus, people always like variety so ripening berries and roots (camas, yampa, etc.) would also be collected when encountered. Some pounding stones, the types often used for roots, were recovered.
