Event dates: Sept. 1 – Oct. 14th, 2017
Rules to participate:
1. In order to hunt for the hidden duck head you must be at least 18 years old.
2. The hidden duck head will be somewhere on City of Trumann property (not private, federal, or state property) – therefore trespassing is not necessary and prohibited. The duck head is also not hidden on restricted city property – so it is somewhere accessible to everyone in the general public. You should be able to search for the duck head on publicly accessible city property during regular daytime hours. That means it may possibly be hidden somewhere that has daytime hours only. The hidden duck head will not be buried, so digging is not necessary nor allowed. Climbing is not required to find the duck head. It is hidden by a 6 foot tall person standing on the ground – so climbing is not necessary and is prohibited. A “hunter” should be able to find the hidden duck head standing on the ground given he or she is 6 feet tall. That means it may be hidden up in a tree or on something else above the ground however the person hiding the duck head was not allowed to climb. We want everyone to be safe!
3. Clues will be shared at the participating businesses on dates listed below (beginning at 9:00 AM or when they open if later). You must physically go into the business to get the clues (NO TELEPHONE CALLS). Businesses will not know their clue until the day (and time) listed below.

Additional hint: The stenciled duck head profiles on concrete in our 7 parks was a hint from last year – they have nothing to do with the hunt this year.
