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.

There are not too many places you should be visiting right now. This is one exception. I paced it out of the way of the public, but not too far from the loading area for the main reason to be here. Don’t forget to wash your hands! The tag is magnetic and it’s on the bottom side.

PA-28, Fairmount City, PA, US

Redbank Valley Mammoth is resting in between the Redbank Valley Trail and the Redbank Valley Creek as you travel up the (you guessed it!) Redbank Valley. The area he is in will not look exactly like the photo shown here. He's at a pull-off along a main road that runs in between the trail and the creek in this area.

If you are very careful a semi can pull in there to park - it is tight but I've seen them parked here. There is a geocache on the opposite side of the pull-off.

Just north of here is a site known as Fishbasket. In the 1980s remains of an old Native American town and many relics were unearthed. (No mammoths were found though.)

The 96-foot high rustic giant slide has provided many thrilling rides to park visitors. Visitors looking out from the park’s scenic overlook will see a spectacular 10-mile panoramic view of the surrounding countryside. The tag is located at a spot where you can view the map of the park...Park hours are 9:00am till dusk..Get ready to exercise your hunting skills , but you may have to stretch to nab this Woolley Mammoth

cron publish 4 days 20 hours ago 692 - Stampalina- A tiny mammoth story

Oak Way, Berkeley Heights, NJ, US

Stampalina, and her twin sister, Trampalina, were considered free-range roaming woolly mammoths that moved across the lands now know as Watchung, Warren and Dunellen. Their father, Squash-A-Maximus, lived a more tranquil life between two adjacent lakes. At the time, hunters were killing these types animals for the meat, tusks, and fur, but the local farmers chose not to hunt them, but allowed them live free. Each year once winter had passed, the farmers were able to shave the woolly mammoths and trade their fur with the Scottish, who used it to make pre-modern kilts. The problem was the heat and itch factor the fur caused and thus the woolly mammoth kilts were no longer desirable. Stampalina was very whimsical and like to play on the mountains. After a good hard rain she would sit on her rump and slide down the mountainside riding the mud to the bottom. The local farmers were always amazed to see this giant animal play and many families braved rainstorms to watch. The mud would completely cover her and she would get up and stomp her way back to the top.
It was one of these playful rides in the mud that was her undoing. On a particularly stormy night she stomped her way to the top, loosing the earth with each tremendous step. Her very first ride carved out a path and created massive mudslide. Resting in a pool of flooding rain water, the muddy avalanche over took Stampaline and buried her. Since then the rain has forged out a new path, but left her burial site untouched.

Her twin sister and father. Trampalina’s death was one of great struggle and she did not take this laying down. She fought against the foreign hunters with her massive tusks and uprooted many trees during her battle. The hunters tried to drive her to the cliff’s edge, but she ran back trampling over anyone in her way. Finally, with a mighty roar, a hoarse barking noise and last moaning gasp, she succumbed to the hunter’s weapons. It’s said in local folklore that if you walk her last path from the drop-off to her final resting place, you can hear the mighty roar and feel the ground shake. Squash-A-Maximus just disappeared one night. Many scholars of the time concluded he migrated to what is now known as Quebec. However storywriters and bards of the time began telling stories of the great friendly woolly mammoth that disappeared into the lake and to this day his shadowy spirit still roams free.

Uh-oh! A few days ago, we went for a hike at Canoe Creek State Park and spotted one of the rare mini-mammoths that have been lurking about...but he got spooked and ran to hide in this cave! Unfortunately, the entrance is gated for humans, though this wily Wooly was able to slip through the left side and take shelter out of view, inside an MKH for safety. Perhaps you can find him? Be careful & good luck!

Windham Road 11, Simcoe, ON, CA

No Mammoth here, but they did find a mastodon

Mastodon were shorter and stockier than mammoths with shorter, straighter tusks. Mastodons were wood browsers and their molars have pointed cones specially adapted for eating woody browse. Mammoths were grazers, their molars have flat surfaces for eating grass

In 1905, a mastodon mandible and several molars were found on the farm of T.B. Wintemute, Concession 10, Lot 10, Windham Township, Norfolk County.

I got the alert while sitting on the couch and had nothing but social distancing on the agenda, so I packed up my 3-yr old and jumped in the car.

This was his first “long walk” without the stroller and he did pretty good...until he jumped in the water to try to catch the ducks. We also saw what I think was a baby beaver. He was happy to take two yellow golf balls (one for each pocket) home with us too. Thanks for hiding! This mammoth trackable with join the others from snag the tag: the ninja and the zombie.

This tag has been placed on the most logical spot in town. The replica of the animal excavated from a dig in the Badlands of South Dakota.

The largest animal of the Pleistocene Era was extinct around 10,000 years ago; it roamed the plains for nearly 2 million years.

This replica is on the grounds of the Archaeology Laboratory of Augustana College.

Placed with the permission of one of Augustana's Professors of Archaeology with the hopes that more folks would come check out the Mammoth sculpture.

Seawall Dr, Port Acres, Port Arthur, TX, US

Wilbur, the Woolly Mammoth has been seen in the Port Arthur, TX area. He loves the fresh, green vegetation found in the wooded areas and has eaten his way through a big section of it. But, now he seems to be heading out in search of a drink of water.

He was last seen going toward the Port and making his way along the levee road, stopping to look at the passing ships whenever they came by. But, we need to find him before he falls into the waterway by accident. Although he’s big, Wilbur has no idea how deep that channel really is. If we can’t find him before he falls in, poor Wilbur will join his ancestors and be lost to the water. Please help us save Wilbur and come find him soon! Happy hunting!

This 1-mile stroll will take you past an area where Mammoths once roomed. You can either walk or bike, but PLEASE park in the coords above.

As you get close to the mammoth, you will hear the amphibians and birds sing. Close your eyes and you are transported back to when these creatures walked the earth.

Be careful of your step, you might get one foot wet.

Look under the "nature blanket" and you will find the mammoth.
