Celebrate Wapiti & Wilderness During Jackson Hole ElkFest May 19-20, 2018

ElkFest, a weekend of activities built around the 51st annual world famous Jackson Hole Boy Scout Elk Antler Auction, is an exciting time for celebrating nature, outdoor skills, and hunting and ecological education and awareness. To learn about the 2017 Boy Scout Elk Antler Auction results from the National Elk Refuge, please click here.

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 the High Noon Chili Cook-Off and the Mountain Man Rendezvous kick-off, supports the National Elk Refuge with a large portion of auction proceeds going back to habitat enhancement projects on the Refuge.
