Jackson Hole Boy Scouts display a pallet of elk antlers during the 2019 ElkFest antler auction in Town Square. The annual event — which also features private vendors, food and drink, a Scout expo and music from the Jackson Hole Community Band — starts at 7 a.m. Saturday.

Patrick Starich is just looking forward to seeing the antlers Saturday.

“It’s pretty thrilling to see that many shed antlers,” said Starich, the president of Jackson Hole Friends of Scouting. “I don’t know if there’s anywhere else on the planet where you can see 8,000 or 9,000 pounds of antlers all in one place.”
