Pets

Pets enjoy visiting parks with their families. Pets are welcome at Russell Cave, and must be on a leash. Remember to bring water for your pet, and thank you for cleaning up after them.

Atlatal and Spear

The atlatl, a spear thrower, was used for hunting at Russell Cave National Monument. This tool multiplies the force and distance of the spear and acts as an arm extension. The archeological evidence at this site includes deer antler hooks, deer antler handles, and stone weights.
