About 650 years ago, native peoples established a camp deep in the South Texas Plains overlooking a small, slowly flowing stream. First and foremost, the archeological evidence shows they were a hunting people who ranged out from the camp in search of preferred prey, hoofed animals: deer, antelope, and buffalo. But hunting big game animals was not what brought in most of the food—they also gathered, picked, dug up, snared, hunted, and grabbed all manner of smaller creatures, plant foods, and other natural resources.
