Elk Antler Auction Hits the Streets of Jackson Hole
Come to Jackson Hole this May and enjoy the beginning of summer and the great events that we have to offer. May 22 and 23rd is the 43rd annual World Famous Jackson Hole Boy Scouts Elk Antler Auction. An exciting time for celebrating nature, outdoor skills, hunting and ecological education and awareness.
Every spring, thousands of elk wintering on the National Elk Refuge lose their antlers before they migrate to their summer range. The Boy Scouts assist the Refuge with harvesting the shed antlers and auction them to bidders from around the world who make furniture, wall decorations, jewelry and food products from them.
This annual event, which includes a Chili Cook-Off with live musical performances, and the kick-off of a Mountain Man Rendezvous and an Antler Rendezvous, supports the winter feeding program on the National Elk Refuge with 80% of auction proceeds going back to the Refuge.
Spring Creek is also celebrating with the ElkFest Celebration Promotion!
