The remains of many animals were found at the shelter during the time human beings would have occupied the cave. Plus hundreds of spear and arrow points, and stone knives, were recovered during the excavations. These indicate that camping in the protection of the cave while hunting in the immediate area was what people used the cave for. In addition, the cave was formed by a collapsed lava tube leaving a large pit that at least once was used to drive bison into. As the bison fell into the pit many were fatally wounded and then the hunters finished the process with spears and arrows.
