JACKSON, Wyoming — This year's Boy Scout Elk Antler Auction in Jackson brought in a record $131,400.
Sales at Saturday's 46th event were way above the 10-year average of $77,781. The National Elk Refuge says the amount of antlers sold — 8,507 pounds — and the average $15 a pound price were also above the 10-year average.
The antlers were all shed by elk on the 25,000-acre refuge.
It will get the majority of the proceeds but a quarter of the money will go to the Boy Scouts' Jackson District to cover their national dues.
