ELKFEST IN JACKSON HOLE
Saturday, May 16th - Sunday, May 17th, 2015
(one week before Memorial weekend)

Elkfest is the place to be for those wanting to find that special pair of antler. This year will be the 48th annual BSA Annual Elk Antler Auction. Last year raised a record amount of money, with seventy-five percent being returned to the Nation Elk Refuge for habitat enhancement and interpretive programs. Whether you want a single antler or are a craftsman wanting thousands of pounds, come to the largest collection of antler for sale anywhere at a single location.

Besides the 6,000 to 9,000 pounds of antler offered by the Jackson District Boy Scouts, there also are an abundance of antler offered at the Jackson Hole Rotary Club Private Antler Sale. The Rotary sale, held every year in conjunction with the Auction, has been going on for over twenty years, with many vendors returning year after year. Come and see the amazing offerings of antler on display.

Don't miss out on the sale of the last of the four arches on the town square. The antler in the arch on the northwest corner of the town square will be sold to the highest bidder at the end of the BSA Elk Antler Auction

RECORD ANTLERS RETURN FROM
THE GREAT ELK TOUR

Giant Antler and Wayne BoydPlan on attending Elkfest in 2015. On display will be the amazing pair of shed antlers picked up on the Refuge in 2013. The antlers that made such a stir then, will return from their tour with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Great Elk Tour. The man who scores our antler for us was quoted as saying, “This elk is by far the largest elk I have ever seen on the National Elk Refuge. He has an incredible main beam that measures over 5 feet long. He's a 6x8 that grosses about 427" and nets about 412 as a non-typical. This doesn't include the 4-6" of broken tine he's missing. I gave him a 40" inside spread but it's possible he could have been wider.“ Will that monster pair of antler be equaled by the pair dropped this spring by this amazing bull? Plan on coming to take in all of the activities of Elkfest this spring and find out.
