Antler Auction Tops $100K

Auction

130 bidders from 31 states gathered on the town square Saturday morning for the 44th annual Jackson District Boy Scout Antler Auction, bidding this year on 13-thousand-104 pounds of antlers.  By the end of the morning, the auction had raised $111,305 with bids ranging from $7.00 per pound to $54.00 a pound.  The largest amount paid for a single pair was $1296.00.  Cub scouts, boy scouts and scout leaders displayed for the bidders 127 bundles, pairs, and trailer loads of antlers which also included some skulls. This year, the scouts were also aided by the robot that had taken the Jackson Hole High School Robotics Club to national competition – demonstrating the device in honor of the new robotics merit badge offered by Boy Scouts of America.  Boy Scout District Chairman Cliff Kirkpatrick says the day’s event was reminiscent of years ago for its amount of antlers and the overall dollar amount raised.  Kirkpatrick says he was not only pleased with the turnout for the event on the square, but the number of new bidders who have joined the ranks.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
