In the Murray Springs site in the Upper San Pedro, archeological research showed that a group of Clovis hunters killed a young female mammoth about 11,000 BCE while drinking from a water hole which the herd had dug out. They also killed 11 bison in the vicinity (Haynes and Huckell, 2007). However, much of the larger game became extinct during the Late Quaternary Pleistocene/Holocene Extinction.
