Aboriginal hunters used the natural features of the landscape to help harvest bison herds.

By creating and controlling the direction of a stampede, hunters could steer animals to ruin over steep inclines. In this way, large numbers of wounded animals were easily killed. South of Elrose at SW 16-25-15 W3rd, a typical buffalo jump can be found on private property.
