Elkfest is the place to be for those wanting to find that special pair of antler. This year will be the 52nd annual of the BSA Annual Elk Antler Auction. Last few years have raised record amounts 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 at the Auction, 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.
