What animals were hunted? How were they used?

The remains of many different animals were found on the garbage pits at SunWatch. Animals were used for food included deer, elk, wild turkey, bear, racoon, squirrel, rice rats, turtles, dogs, and fish.

Some animals like the deer, elk, and turkey provided the villagers with hides for clothing, sinew for sewing thread, and bone for tools, toys, musical instruments, as well as teeth and feathers for adornment.
