This hunt is in Rolla.

All day hunt–please bring food and drinks. Part of the area will be woods—bring boots and tick spray.

The owner requests the GENEVIEVE METHOD. This is the reason why we got the hunt. Please be courteous and present all finds, and all trash, for inspection. Please take pictures of your finds in case the owner wants to keep any of your finds. If he does keep any (he didn’t last year), they will be put in the Wilson’s Creek Battlefield Museum.

We will meet at 10:00am at the owner’s location which will only be sent via email to those who have registered and are current club members. This location is incorrect in the GPS. Only the directions you receive via email will be correct. We will then hand out directions to our FINAL DESTINATION. You may choose to hunt either location. 

If you choose the second location, please be sure to bring back your finds to the owner.
