Each autumn the elk of Yellowstone National Park have come down the mountains to their traditional winter feeding ground at Jackson, Wyoming. They began to starve when humans settled on their pastures and in 1912, a winter refuge was created for the elk. Each spring the Boy Scouts of Jackson go into the refuge and gather antlers that the elk have shed. The antlers are then sold at auction, with the proceeds going to pay for food for the elk the next winter. Full color.
