Boy Scout Antler Sales Set Record

Antlers 2013

Constant rain Saturday morning may have discouraged the number of bystanders normally seen at the Boy Scout Antler auction in previous years, but it certainly did not dilute the prices that the antlers bought from the buyers who crowed the covered sidewalk above the bleachers.  By the end of the sale, the average price for a bundle of antlers was a record $15.43. One skull with irregular antlers on it brought $1650. The total sales yielded $131,279 including those bought prior to the auction for the town square. Most of the money raised supports interpretation activities and irrigation on the National Elk Refuge.  Jackson Boy Scout District Chairman Cliff Kirkpatrick says this year’s total was a record for the Scouts’ 46 years of antler sales.  Kirkpatrick says the district is really happy about that.  “The price per pound we had heard was going to be up,” says Kirkpatrick, “and it turned out it was up substantially.”  He says there seems to be a shortage of antlers nationally and there were buyers there who wanted to take home a lot of what was available. Kirkpatrick says total antlers collected were 8507 pounds is about 400 pounds higher than the ten-year average.  Altogether, Kirkpatrick says 103 bidders from 25 states participated in the sale.

    I recently had the rare opportunity to test a compact and a full-size pickup pretty much head-to-head. Going into it, I was pretty sure there was nothing the compact version could offer that I would like more than the full-size truck. But the Nissan Frontier, despite its size, is no less truck than the Nissan […]

  • Hunting season = diet season - August 18, 2014
    I grew up hunting elk with horses. In my opinion, that’s the best way to get the job done. You can pack a comfortable camp far back into the wilderness, then hunt on foot from there. If someone’s lucky enough to bring down one of the beasts, loading the carcass onto a pack horse is […]
