A cool geocache in Kitchener Ontario. I might want a good hint though; you could get in trouble if you dismantled a tap that wasn't the cache!

Funny how something as simple as putting googly eyes on a bison tube #geocache can make it stand out and more fun. (pic posted by Geocaching Jangie) #IBGCp

Here's a way to make a bison tube #geoache hide fun. The hiding spot is easier to see than a tube by itself, but you still have to work to get your smiley! (geocaching_with_nickanddonna pic) #IBGCp

Sneaky fake rebar #geocache hide in Lithuania. A bison tube is just the right size for this.

Pine cone geocache. Have you ever found a cache like this? Might take a bit of skill to keep the pine cone from falling apart as you make the hole for the bison tube. #IBGCp

Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to cache we go! A bison tube is boring, but things like this make them more fun (and easy) to find. (Brian Lareau pic) #IBGCp

A nicely integrated geocache. I like the addition of the geocaching "G"; it means nothing to muggles but reveals the spot to geocachers. (skaubystine pic)

Not your typical micro in the woods! That may be the biggest bison tube I've ever seen, and the easiest to spot hanging in a tree. :) GC6D877 in BC, Canada. #IBGCp

Someone apparently decided a bison tube by itself was too boring, and geocachers appreciate that! (katiekay79 pic)

You can't put an apple in a geocache, but sometimes an apple IS the cache. This also makes a bison tube in a tree easier (and more fun) to find. (UK Geocacher pic) #IBGCp
