Hundreds of antlers, horns and hides piled high outside Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks’ Great Falls office drew bids ranging from a few dollars to the thousands on Saturday.
It was the state’s semiannual auction of confiscated wildlife, with items including bighorn sheep horns, elk racks and shed antlers and even a few frozen mountain lion, bobcat and otter carcasses. The auction drew a wide variety of bidders, whether wildlife artists looking for horns to carve, crafters needing antlers or taxidermists buying trophies for the wall.
