The 50th anniversary of the Boy Scout Elk Antler Auction is slated on May 20 and 21, and will be showcasing more elk antlers and provides more fun than ever in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The event will hold different nature and outdoor celebrations, testing skills in and knowledge of hunting and ecological conservation.

Every year, Elks on the National Elk Refuge shed their antlers before migrating again during the summer. The boy scouts helped the Refuge and the Elks going through this phase while collecting the antlers for auctioning to bidders around the world. The winners of the bid, afterward, turn these antlers to wall decors, furniture, accessories and even food.

According to a press statement to Travelers Today, proceeds from the event will go to improving the National Elk Refuge just located north of the town. On May 20, the day starts with a preview of the antlers by the Boy Scouts of America Elk Antler Auction. Meanwhile, a Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Great Elk Tour will also happen up to 2 p.m. for people to join in this traveling exhibit.

The Elk Auction and kid's activities will start at 9 a.m. and will continue up to four hours. Games and galore are for everyone up to 7 p.m. during the day.

At the same time, Jackson Hole High Noon Chili Cook-Off will be held on Sunday for teams to cook up the best chili dish in the West. Visitors will be able to get to see and maybe savor a taste or two on this Elkfest weekend.

Simultaneously, on May 20, 21 and 30, the Mountain Man Rendezvous and Traders Row will talk about the history of everything elk-related and bring along good drinks and crafts for people to see. And it seems like the organizers have already planned on holding their next event on May 19 and 20 next year.
