Time Left to Snag a Tag

Attention geocachers: There are rumors of wild woolly mammoths being spotted all over the United States! Join the hunt to find one of your very own and earn your bones!

The game is simple: go to a location where a mammoth has been spotted. If you get there first, you will find a mammoth tag waiting for you. Please take the physical tag to keep as your own. You need to claim the tag as soon as possible so it can be removed from the map. You will then follow the instructions to redeem for a trackable geocoin prize that combines with the tag! How cool is that? The geocoin and tag are exclusive to this Mission Mammoth game.

If you would like to be a hider, a limited number of hider packs are on sale at Shop Geocaching.

Stay alert - and set an alert - because a mammoth may appear at any time and anywhere in the United States. Join our Facebook Group for game updates and announcements and follow the game on Instagram and Twitter.

Mammoth Coin

Redemption rules: Strictly one coin per household and family member; please do not grab more than one tag. There is no charge for the redemption geocoin, but you are responsible for any shipping charges. As a courtesy to other finders, please claim your tag immediately. Instructions for claiming are on the back of the tag. The geocoin must be claimed by May 31st, 2020.

cron publish 3 days 17 hours ago 349 - Mammoth, Illinois ?

Co Hwy 20, Monmouth, IL, US

North America's Great Extinction happened around 10,000 years ago. You can bet the great great granddad of beast you’re searching for roamed the Illinois fields. Okay it may have shrank in size but this is still a dangerous animal! Not to be underestimated in any way. The tusks are sharp!

I knew the kids and I couldn’t keep him so I had to drop this guy off in Mamm...oh man.

I didn’t...did I? Yes I did. Haha I just realized this town is named Monmouth not Mammoth. Oh dear, what a blunder. Explains why we don’t see any others out here.

On the east side of town you’ll come across the Glendale Cemetery also known as “Monmouth Cemetery”. If you take the “southernmost entrance” you’ll see the “Brownlee” marker. Park there and look to your right.

We do not know if our hairy friend broke that large hole in the wall or not but we do know he’s still there somewhere. Walk around to the “east” side and see if you can coax him out of his “hiding hole”. PS he likes Werthers Originals :)

Please do not hunt this tag at night and if there are mourners present please return at a later time. Thank you

Thank you for supporting Snag The Tag. Don’t forget to claim your tag and redeem the second piece of your coin!

Mukwonago, WI, US

**Wes the Wooly Mammoth was my dad. I never knew my mom which makes me sad. They were headed down the Fox River one day. I wasn't yet born and they stopped to lay. In the very soft marsh grass that is all about. All of a sudden from my mom an egg popped out. They were frightened and did not have a clue. And neither Mom or Dad knew what to do. So they did what every smart Wooly Mammoth would. They both ran away as fast as they could. And left behind the egg that contained little old me. But I can't get break out on my own you see. I don't mean to be desparate or to have to beg. But I need a nice cacher who will come find my egg. And help me break free and adopt me as their own. So that I have a family and am not so all alone.**

N Prospect Rd, Superior Charter Twp, MI, US

The skeletal remains of a woolly mammoth, which died between 11,000 and 15,000 years ago, were discovered in early October by a soy bean farmer near Chelsea, Michigan, about 10 miles southwest of Ann Arbor. this is not that spot though. However from this vantage point you can see the swampy area where 11,500 years ago a mammoth was not caught in the mud. But it is still a very nice view anyway! Down below the hill, things might get a little prickly!

Mondo the mammoth loved sports and space, so when he woke from the ice he went to see his favorite local stellar team. He placed himself where he would have a chance of catching a homerun ball. You can reach your goal by going just over the top, and gain yourself a tag if you truly "believe"

Whites Woods Trail, Indiana, PA, US location_on N 40 38.168, W 079 10.039 local_parking N 40 38.318, W 079 09.968

The tag is hidden very close to one of the local caches called "Jurassic Park Visitor's Center " (GC4N9CZ) located at the Whites Woods Nature Center in Indiana , Pennsylvania. White's Woods is a recreational park full of trails that the public can use from dawn to dusk in any season. It originally was owned by the Railroad companies in the 1950's or 60's then the land was sold to a real state agency. It consisted of 250 acres that was then given to White Township by the heirs of White Estates for recreational use by the terms of “Project 70 Land Acquisition and Borrowing Act” of 1964 . Today, there are over ten trails that the public can use along with campsites and a connection with the Indiana University of Pennsylvania CO-OP park along with other locations such as the IUP farm. There is also a 5k or 3k marked trail that goes through various terrain. With miles of trails and wildlife, it's a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The trails are enjoyed by many all year round. The closest parking to the tag is an entrance into the woods just off of Route 954 ( Fulton Run Road) with room for one vehicle to park......Coords are provided for this parking spot, but make sure that you don't block the gate.....After a short walk up the power line you'll come to a gas /trail combo that will lead you to gz...

cron publish 3 days 18 hours ago 347 - The Womble Family's Pet Mammoth

County Park Dr, New Hill, NC, US

Harris Lake County Park was created on lands once owned by the Womble Family. They were farmers that used the land and nearby water source to grow crops and to provide for their family. What is not common knowledge is that they also raised a woolly mammoth from a young age. Local folklore has it that the Wombles found the little mammoth walking along the Peninsula Trail. They befriended the mammoth and took it to their home along the History Trail. One day the little mammoth fell asleep between two trees near a pond. Try as they may, the Wombles could not wake the mammoth from her deep slumber. They covered the mammoth with a blanket of leaves and pine straw to keep her warm. The Wombles also built a Wash House nearby where they could keep an eye on the little gal in hopes that one day she would wake-up. As time past the Mammoth still did not wake up, and soon the Womble family faded into history. Maybe you could help find the mammoth and see if she has waken from her hibernation.

After finding the Mammoth, you can continue hiking up the history trail. After taking a right at the fork, you will eventually come to the foundation of the actual Womble Family homesite.

Hope you enjoyed your walk through a little NC history.

With this dang covid19 around I had to get creative to get this found. I am in quarantine but I knew a friend was going to pass by this location on her way home. It was a bit difficult explaining what the tag was and what she was looking for. After a bit of guidance over the phone and a few "I'ts not there", I heard over the phone I think I got it. I guess it would have been easier if I sent her a pic of the mammoth instead of describing what it looked like. So technically I don't have it in my hand yet but it is no longer on the spot you hid it and it is secured until I can get it in my hands.

This is my 1st ever Snag the Tag! I had the day off so I figured I'd make my way north to find this huge mammoth! It took me awhile to find and it would have taken me twice as long if it wasnt in the container it was in. Another place geocaching has brought me that I would have never been. I will definitely be back in the summer when it's open. Thanks for my 1st Snag the Tag experience!

One of my favorite thing about this type of game, is you find things you never knew existed. I looked for the Mammoth based on the picture clues, but it was gone. I was a little disappointed, but then had the thought to look around a little more. I found it in the grass right there. Feeling Lucky!

Last Saturday was frustrated not finding the nearby Mammouth after a long search in a wooded area. So I was excited to see another in the area! I ran out the door hoping to snag this one.

Took a good area search and then went back to the first spot I looked and gave it a “push” and it revealed the prize!

Thanks to the owner for placing!
