A near-record set of antlers found on the National Elk Refuge will be on display but won't be for sale at an auction in Jackson.
The Jackson Hole News and Guide reported Friday the antlers scored nearly 432 on the Boone and Crockett system. Boone and Crockett's website says the world record for typical antlers is just under 443.
The score is based on various measurements of the antlers. Boone and Crockett's registry is only for elk killed by hunters. This set was found on the northwest Wyoming refuge after an elk shed them and cannot be registered.
The antlers were going to be sold at Saturday's auction, but organizers decided to withdraw them and possibly sell them later.
The auction raises money for Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts.
