ELKFEST IN JACKSON HOLE
Elkfest is the place to be for those wanting to find that special pair of antler. This year will be the 47th 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.
2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the Town of Jackson.

RECORD ANTLERS FOUND DISPLAYED
Plan on attending Elkfest in 2014. On display will be the amazing pair of shed antlers picked up on the Refuge last year. The antlers that made such a stir then, are mounted and on tour with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Great Elk Tour. This elk is by far the largest elk ever seen by many on the National Elk Refuge. He has an incredible main beam that measures over 5 feet long. He is 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. He was given a 40" inside spread but it's possible he could have been wider. The antlers will be back and displayed at the Great Elk Tour this year at Elkfest. 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. This year we will also have a big horn sheep head and a moose head, two things we have not had at the auction for twenty five years or more, maybe never.
