An article by Lyman (2007) in this journal provided an excellent summary of the Holocene paleozoological record of pronghorn in eastern Washington, but the discussion of hunting of herds and specifically of communal hunting prior to the written record does not capture the complexity of this issue. A bone assemblage numerically dominated by pronghorn does not alone provide adequate evidence for hunting herds of multiple animals. There needs to be a convergence of multiple lines of evidence, including indications of human-caused mortality, a single episode of bone deposition, and a single mortality event.
