2020 Jackson antler auction to be held online
September 8, 2020
The Jackson Boy Scout antler auction will be held online this year due to COVID-19 health concerns. Typically, the live auction is held during the Elkfest in May on the Jackson Town Square. That event was cancelled due to the coronavirus shut down. Proceeds from the scout antler auction benefit the Headwaters District Boy Scouts and the National Elk Refuge. The event has been moved to an online venue starting Wednesday, September 9th through Saturday, September 19th. Up for bid are: 19 pallets of antlers, three of which are matched pairs, 1 white "barn art" skull, 3 skull caps, 3 individual matched pairs, 4 beetle cleaned skulls, 1 trailer of brown broken antlers and 1 trailer of white antlers. Descriptions, weights and photos are included on each itemís page for potential buyers to review.
Anyone interested in participating will need to register for free online here: https://elkfest2020.afrogs.org/.
Several bidding options are available:
standard bidding, "Auto Bidding" and "Bid Wars." "Auto Bidding" allows participants to select a maximum bid and the system will bid automatically until that limit is reached. If an item receives a bid in the final moments of the auction, that item will be entered into a "Bid War" which extends the time limit. Competition for that item will end once no bids have been placed for ten minutes. Lots will have staggered closing times allowing bidders a chance to enter multiple Bid Wars.
