Visitor Tips and News About Antler Arches of Jackson
Massive antler arches sit at each of the four corners of the town square in Jackson, Wyoming. Supposedly no deer were hurt in the construction of these arches, since they naturally fall off each year, but I suspect more than one frisky child has been savagely poked by these spiny edifices. When checking out the arches late in the afternoon between Memorial Day and Labor Day you might be lucky enough to catch the longest running western shoot-out reenactment in the country. Replete with drunks, dancing girls, near hangings and plenty of gunshots, this is one show that hasn't been pc'd to death.[Jay Kirby, 11/08/2005]
In downtown Jackson, there is a 10-15 ft arch (and about 10 ft around at the base) made of antlers as you head towards Grand Teton and Yellowstone.[Jim Heverin, 07/02/2005]
