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.

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.
