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.

When I think of Mammoth I think of these things. Once you are close to them they are truly Mammoth.

I have hidden a Mission Mammoth tag in historic Guthrie, OK. This is Honor Park, a Veterans Memorial, one of numerous locations worth visiting in this little town. The tag is inside a baggie, inside a fake rock. You'll have to lift up to see it.

Another Mammoth sighting has been reported near the Historical Society Museum, in Big Flats, New York! With the recent sighting at nearby Maple Shade Park, this makes two mysterious creatures in as many days being seen in the area. What is going on? Where did they come from? Latest witness reports suggest that the behemoth may be hiding under the pavilion, near the storage shed. Good luck and happy hunting!

This wooly Mammoth loves his temporary home. He has a great view of the valley and plenty water nearby for when he gets thirsty. While strolling thought the native plants he found a cave like home to wait for his new owners. In the cave under rock and leaves.

I was really hoping to capture one of these wholly buggers. Debated on going as this one was a little ways away from where I live. Not sure if I would have another chance I took advantage of it. Once I was in the area I made a short walk, first place I reached I found the little guy. Thank you so much for the time and effort put into hiding this tag.

Sophie and I snagged the tag. More later. Don’t want anyone making a drive out only to find this gone.

Later: I woke up extra early. I checked my email as my coffee brewed. What? A Mammoth in the next town over? Let's go! Sophie the Chocolate Lab and I hit the road. It was still dark outside, but dawn was coming. It was tons of fun having the Tommy Thompson all to ourselves. We made our way to the coordinates and quickly made the find. We watched the sun rise over the refinery, saw lots of birds this morning. It's amazing to watch the gulls drop their breakfast shells on the rocks or pavement to open them up. Ingenious! Thanks for the fun!

cron publish 1 week 2 days ago 043 - Lyuba

S Keeney Rd, Spokane, WA, US

Going to make you work for this one. It's not a park and grab. Expect about a mile and a half round trip walk, in a beautiful place. Take your time. Plenty of caches to be found. And even if the tag is missing or already claimed, the walk and view of the lake is worth it. There were 14 swans there today when I placed the tag.

This tag is placed in honor of little Lyuba, the baby mammoth mummy found in Russia in 2007. As with most mammoths, Lyuba's remains were intact for us to find because she wandered into a bog, got stuck, and died there. It's a tragic ending to contemplate. Our local mammoth, found down near Latah, was also exhumed from a bog.

So this tag brings to you the closest thing I know to a boggy place where a mammoth could get stuck. The lake at Slavins Conservation area is full right now, with swans and geese and ducks galore. But I have been here when it was nearly dry: a mudflat with fish concentrated in two tiny pools being hunted by eager coyotes. It's easy to imagine a heavier animal seeking water and getting stuck... poor thing!

To find the tag. Look for snag in the photo. Tag is at the base of it, far side away from the trail. It's concealed by a stick and bark as shown. Hope no exploring kiddo finds it before one of us does! The area does get a lot of walkers coming down to see the birds. Enjoy!

One could just imagine Wooly Mammoths roaming the valleys here. Now days this area is frequented by herds of elk and deer that are under the protection of the Hanford Site. Tag is at the "Posted" coordinates.

Snoqualmie Valley Trail, Carnation, WA, US

The Stillwater Natural Area holds many secrets along with some very shy animals. I heard rumors of a large shaggy beast in this area and headed out to try my luck. I did not find him on the many boot beat trails left by other hunters. You may have better luck though. Don't get lost out here as I understand the locals won't come looking for you. Enjoy the hunt.


cron publish 1 week 2 days ago 355 - Look out for Spit!

This mammoth needed a walk and a good view, so decided to check out this great walk with a view of Weavering Spit.

Once you find the three signs, look for a small piece of driftwood and three rocks just north of the signs.

cron publish 1 week 2 days ago 187 - Wally the Woolly Pachyderm

White Rd, Saanichton, BC, CA

Is this the entry to the prehistoric forest? Did the woollies actually reside here during the Ice Age? Wally seems to think so as he has come here in hopes of finding his ancestors. All he has seen so far is a few bipedal beings that aren't afraid of what may have been here - or what may still inhabit the forest.

Careful as you search for Wally. He manages to hide from the passersby by tucking himself (somehow) behind a middle railing. Be wary though as Holly has befriended him and has been known to bite.

I have never found anything like this. Only found out about the tags recently. I went for a different one yesterday and was almost there when it was claimed. I saw this one posted but figured I was to far away and would never make. I checked this morning and no one had claimed so I took a chance and off we went to look. I had no idea where we were headed but my hubby knew exactly where to go. Was right where we suspected. Thank you.

At the North end of town in Mt. Morris there is a new replacement walking bridge crossing the Genessee River as it comes out of Letchworth State Park where there was a covered bridge years ago. You can park at the Pkg coordinates and you may want to walk out over the "Genny" to a nice spot to take a photo. It would deserve a star.

The Sandown Depot is a former railroad station of the Boston and Maine Railroad in Sandown, New Hampshire. Built in 1873-74, it is the best-preserved of stations built by the Nashua and Rochester Railroad to survive, remaining relatively unaltered since its construction, and still at its original location. It is now a local history museum, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986. Credit, Sandown Historical society
