55th BSA Elk Antler Auction
  Back on the Town Square

The Elkfest and the 55th Annual BSA Elk Antler Auction is planned to be back on the Town Square this year. We are working on details, but we are hoping to have a traditional live event on the Town Square, Center and Deloney Streets.   

We be selling the "big guy" beetle cleaned skull this year. Come and see the skull and antlers of this amazing elk.

Proceeds from the Antler Auction benefit the Headwaters District Boy Scouts of America and the National Elk Refuge.

More information on the Auction page.

We hope to have more information here soon.

Jackson Hole Airport Closed This Spring

The Jackson Hole Airport will be closed from April 11 - June 27, 2022. It will be closed during Elkfest. We encourage arranging travel plans early! More information on the closure and alternative options can be found here.


Special Announcement
"Big Guy" Beetle Cleaned Skull To Sell

Big Bull in the herd
Big Bull stands out in a crowd

"Big Guy" has one of the biggest racks of any bull scored by Boone & Crocket in the state of Wyoming. After he died on the National Elk Reguge three years ago, we had his skull beetle cleaned by Skinner Skull Shop.
