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.

US-41 BUS, Bradenton, FL, US

After visiting The Bishop Museum, it seemed like it was an appropriate location for the tag to be hidden. Please go to the parking waypoint. Do not stop on the road. One of the photos is a clear hint!

A Protector stands ready to repel any Mammoth that may enter this small town. The small hairy creature was scared and hid under the electrical box behind the brick monument. "Come save me!" it calls.

Discovery Rd, Petersburg, PA, US location_on N 40 40.078, W 077 54.470 local_parking N 40 40.132, W 077 54.586

Situated in a lovely oak grove in Stone Valley at the Shaver's Creek Environmental Center, this mammoth is ready for you to find and take home. And while enjoying the trails in the public recreational facility (operated by Penn State University), be sure to check out some of the points-of-interest signs along the way and also a very interesting "cemetery" exhibit nearby this mammoth site that reminds us to keep our environment clean and free of trash! Cache-In/Trash-Out... Or in this case, Tag-Out,Trash-Out...

The staffed facilities of this recreational area are currently closed, as the season opening has not been determined, but the hiking trails are open from dawn to dusk. The specified parking area is only available until 5pm, due to closing the gate at the Environmental Center, so if searching after 5pm, please choose a parking area on the far side of the lake and use the trails to get here. Please do not park blocking any roads or gates. Adequate pull-offs exist along Scare Pond Road in places, including where I parked to place this tag at N 40 39.737 W 077 54.636

Information on this area may be found at: http://www.athletics.psu.edu/stonevalley/

A trail map is located at: https://studentaffairs.psu.edu/sites/default/files/trailmap.pdf

If using the closer parking, you may walk over to a trailhead at N 40 40.079 W 077 54.580. From here, follow the Twin Bridges Trail over towards the benches in the oak grove.

There are two benches just off the trail. The mammoth is under, magnetically attached, to the back bracket of the bench in memory of "Billy" G. Popp.

The interesting "cemetery" exhibit will be just before the grove, if coming from this direction, at N40 40.101 W077 54.487.

If parking along Scare Pond road, approach the Twin Bridges Trail via the Lake trail from a trailhead at N40 39.998 W 077 54.358.

There are a number of other geocaches in the area, easily accessed from the trails around the lake and around the recreation area. Make an afternoon of it!

The trails are very nice, but be aware of ticks, as would be common in the woods at this time of year.

Buzzy wanted to hide this tag on March 15th at the Buzzard Roost Celebration in Hinckley, OH, but he decided to fly home and place it at one of his favorite stomping grounds so his friends might have a chance at finding it. Terrain is almost a 1. The tag is hidden in a pill bottle to keep it clean and dry. Hope you enjoy the view.

US-219, DuBois, PA, US

This is one of the more interesting roadside stops in Pennsylvania and very accessible off Interstate 80. At the posted coordinates, you'll find old railroad cars that have been transformed into various restaurants. Nearby you'll find dinosaurs and even a Sasquatch because...why not?

There's even a woolly mammoth here, though she's very tiny. Hope you find it and enjoy your eventual geocoin. We can't wait to hear about your adventures!

The muggle that helped me place this mammoth thinks this piece of cement is a dog and I believe it to be a rabbit. What do you think?

Cabin Rd, Georgetown, PA, US

Decided to go out on another adventure today and try to grab a Woolly. I started at 10 AM when a posting popped up about 40 miles from home. I fired up my reliable steed, Sophie and headed out. It was a bit of a treacherous journey. We encountered thick fog. But we pushed on. We arrived at the site just as the sun peeked through the sky. I spied the woolly mammoth’s cave and poked my head inside. Nothing. I looked high and low. Nothing. I decided to check the log page and lo and behold, he had already been captured!! Hmmm... What to do? So... I checked the map and found that there was another one about 2.5 hours away and he had been around for a couple of days. So, Sophie and I set off again to see if we could capture a Woolly. We traveled far and wide and on roads we had never been on before. About 2.5 miles out we made a turn... and the gate was closed and locked. I looked at the map again and thought I found another route. We wound our way to the East entrance and found the gate open!! We headed into the park. The GPS numbers kept going down! With my heart beating, I crested a hill and looked to my left. There it was, the scene from the first picture! We were on the right track!! I saw the rock formation. I slowly crept my way up to the cave. I peeked in. There he was!! Sleeping soundly. So I gently woke up this Woolly. I told him about a wonderful and magical place called “home”. I asked him if he wanted to go home with me. He snorted a yes! Now Sophie, Wooly and I will make the trek back to North West Ohio. Only 178 miles from here. Oh... we might spend some time finding treasure on the way back. We are Out On Another Adventure you know!! Thank you for the fun!!

After waking up this morning and seeing this one had posted right down the street from me I thought I would give it try. Figuring it would already be claimed I made my way over to the Museum and what to my surprise it was still there. Finding this little jewel made my day of Quarantine so much better. Thanks for placing this tag in OKC.

This woolly mammoth is chilling out in a classic cache container. All ya need to do is visit the Eastbound Portal (GC169Q6) geocache! I have placed the Mammoth Tag inside of a mini Altoids container that is camo’d – to either be a keepsake or a re-purposed into a geocache container in the future by the finder. Pls take the Altoids tin withya.

cron publish 6 days 18 hours ago 424 - The Mystery of the Last Mammoth

S Sunnylane Rd, Burntwood Mobile Home, Oklahoma City, OK, US

Five million years ago, mammoths roamed the Earth. They were magnificent creatures. The various species of mammoth were commonly equipped with long, curved tusks and, in northern species, a covering of long hair.

Whether the general mammoth population died out for climatic reasons or due to overhunting by humans is controversial. Either way, mammoth are now extinct and if you want to see one, you must visit a place such as the posted coordinates.

What better place for this mammoth tag to be located, than at the Museum of Osteology OKC.

Hint: No need to disturb actual landscaping.


cron publish 6 days 18 hours ago 934 - Wes the Wooly Mammoth at the Watering Hole

County Hwy L, Big Bend, WI, US

There once was a Wooly Mammoth named Wes. Who couldn't drink without making a mess. When he was young, his mother would always fret. Because Wes couldn't drink without getting wet. Wes eventually grew up, but still could not stay dry. And not one single person could figure out why. Everyone laughed at Wes; he took so many knocks. But one day while wandering, he discovered the Fox. A lovely river that afforded him a spectacular view. And water as refreshing as he never knew. He decided that this would be a good place to stay. And wait until Snag the Tag would start one day. He is hoping beyond hope to be found in this place. By a very nice cacher who will look into his face. Not caring that he can't drink without getting wet. And he will become this nice cacher's forever pet.

What better place for a Mammoth than the shadow of the glacierl? This multi-hunt will lead you to a tag. Bring a GPS and look for coordinates at the sign. The final spot is under rocks.

cron publish 6 days 18 hours ago 350 - Mammoth, Iowa ?

Co Hwy E29, Monmouth, IA, 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 Iowa hillside. 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.

As you head towards the “water tower” you’ll see an old “schoolhouse” on your right. Take the gravel drive way up and around to the back of the schoolhouse. In the “tree line” to the north you’ll see an ancient “rock formation”. The tag will be hidden there.

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