Unambiguous Evidence of ‘Ancient Caribou Hunting Site’ Found At the Bottom of Lake Huron

Lake Huron, is an essentially separated land mass into two large vessels of 72 sq. miles post-Ice Age, i.e. Alpena-Amberley ridge. It is now discovered with unambiguous evidence that Caribou hunters, belonged to the ancient era of around 9,000 years back parted in the organized hunts using ambush points and drive lanes.

Archaeologists call this mysterious bottom of Lake Huron as the most complex structure of hunting site that has ever been found beneath the Great Lakes. Hunters chased caribous beyond the exposed strip of the land attached to what is now known as the northeast Michigan to southern Ontario, at the time of history of the region when atmosphere became too cold and Great Lakes ‘s water level was too lower.

Caribou is a large elk-like creature and one of the species of deer, native to some coldest regions on the earth. They live in the tundra, i.e. tree-less, found in North America, Siberia and Europe and migrate towards the wintering areas and summer feeding lands as far as 1,500 miles away, surviving on lichens.

Anthropological archaeology Professor, John O’Shea from the University of Michigan stated that, “The V-shaped hunting blinds located upslope from one of our study areas are oriented to intercept animals moving to the southeast in the autumn. This design differs from other hunting structures associated with alternative seasons of migration. Our simulation data indicates that the area was a convergence point along different migration routes, where the landform tended to compress the animals in both the spring and autumn.”
