Jackson - Elk Antler Arch

Elk Antler arch from the town square in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

 

Antler arches have been gates to the Jackson Town Square since 1960. The antlers are from elk that winter on the National Elk Refuge. About 7500 elk spend each winter on the refuge. The bulls shed their antlers each spring. Antlers are picked up by local Boy Scout and sold by public auction in Jackson square each may. All four arches were bilt by the Jackson Hole Rotary Club.
