There's no evidence squirrels make concious choices about nut storing or wolves do likewise with hunting.

What is the evidence that humans make "conscious choices" about any of the complex behaviours they display?

They conciously design things like weapons, tools. They conciuosly consider their environment and the creatures within it most of time.
For example if a hunter hunts a deer, he/she will conciously consider their strengths and weaknesses and plan accordingly.

How do you know any of that is done consciously?

From my own life and from talking with other people about how did they did this or that or how they arrived at a decision.
Are you seriously suggesting humans do everything subconciusly?
