The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Mark Twain Lake in partnership with the Monroe City Whitetails Unlimited Chapter, the Mark Twain Lake Visitors and Educational Resource Center Committee, the Missouri Department of Conservation and the Mark Twain State Park are proud to announce the return of the Annual Shed Hunt for Youth.

Boudreaux Memorial Visitor Center due to the mask mandate for Federal buildings. Face coverings will not be provided. Shifts will take place every hour, on the hour, starting at 8:00 A.M. with the last shift starting at 3:00 P.M. The goal of this event is to introduce interested youth to the outdoors when most are getting a good dose of cabin fever anyway. There will be a chance for the younger children aged 2 to 12 years to hone their shed hunting skills with a Kiddie Hunt along the Eagle Bluff Trail at the Visitor Center. Sheds will be placed along the trail to give the little ones an idea of what a real shed find will feel like. Need to warm up after your hunt? The Visitor Center lobby will be filled with informational booths from various groups highlighting information on deer and other related outdoor topics throughout the day while the Monroe City Whitetails Unlimited Chapter will be providing a lunch of hot dogs, soup and chips. The event is free for all age groups, but pre-registration is required by 10:00 a.m. January 28, 2022.
