Jackson area officials ask shed antler hunters to wait
April 23, 2020
The following statement was released by the Town of Jackson and Teton County regarding shed antler hunters.
Administrators and public health officials from the Town of Jackson and Teton County,
Wyoming are asking anyone who may be coming to this area to look for shed antlers
to wait until after the pandemic situation has stabilized.
Several State and County health orders and recommendations are currently in place
regarding travel from other geographic areas outside of Teton County and the State of
Wyoming. This includes limiting movement and gathering only with individuals who
are part of your immediate household. Additionally, Wyoming's Governor Mark Gordon
has asked anyone coming to Wyoming from another state to immediately selfquarantine
for 14 days, or for the entire duration if someone is here for a shorter stay.
A substantial influx of visitors using gas stations, convenience and grocery stores,
sporting goods stores, and other amenities puts Teton County further at risk and
compromises limited resources. It also increases the likelihood visitors will jeopardize
their own communities when returning home. Teton County has the second highest lab
confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the state, with hospital resource use and number of
deaths predicted to peak in Wyoming on or near May 1.
