Look around you! This valley was an excellent habitat for buffalo. The herd-gathering area was open grassland north, west, and southwest of the sinkhole. Natural drainage supplemented by man-made structures provided drivelines. The sinkhole was an excellent trap. Less than a mile south, the Black Hills provided the water, wood, and other resources the Indians required. The large processing camp had to be out of site (sic) and preferably downwind of the sinkhole. No wonder Indians were attracted to his location. The landscape provided all of the essentials for a successful communal hunt.
