Ons het heaters in, maar in die koue vries dit steeds. Sal na werk moet gaan oopkap met n byl. Hulle sal sneeu eet as hulle dors is.

My wife makes one every Christmas and sends it to the grandparents. We also  take a picture of the kids at the same spot on more or less the same day in the same position every year. We will try and do that as long as we can. Itís pretty cool to see them grow up.

I had never heard of the Northwest Angle before, a cartography error means a chunk of Manitoba is in the USA.  :sip:  or a chunk of Minnesota is in Canada  :peepwall:

From the net:

How do deer shed their antlers?
It takes just one to two days for a deer's antlers to fall off, but the shedding process begins before, and lasts between two to three weeks. Male deer or bucks shed their antlers annually, although this depends on the deer's species, age, physical health and the area where it resides.
During the shedding process, higher testosterone levels slow down the speed of the antlers' growth and the veins in the velvet cut blood flow and nutrition to the bone. The velvet encasing the antlers withers; the bone's life supply is stopped, and it dies from the tip to the base.
Eventually, the base is broken down by osteoclasts, cells that destroy bone tissue. The deer rubs its antlers on trees to help the crumbling velvet fall, and eventually the weakened antlers are shed at the pedicle.
Finally, the growth process starts again; with every shedding cycle, the buck grows larger and more complex antlers.

Them shedding their antlers causes some grief to the farmers because the tines are so sharp it sticks right through a tractor tire

No. But you can clearly see the difference between a shed and a hunted antler at the base. The shed has a rounded base, and a hunted antler will either be splintered if you broke it off or will clearly show the saw marks. You cannot fake a shed. it is very distinct. When we shoot a buck we have to attach the "tag" to the horns, and that tag need to stay with the horns for one year before you can remove it. But we don't need tags for sheds. Pick up as many as you want and keep them.
Shed hunting is a pretty big "sport". Some guys train their dogs to sniff out antlers. A friend of mine collects hundreds of sheds every year and then sell them per lb to guys that make knife handles, light chandeliers etc. Big money in collecting sheds

Why do you need to keep the tag on for a year? I've consulted google and am more confused now, some saying you can remove when the animal has been processed, other saying the tag is only a guide. Discussions got interesting when you hit and kill a buck or find one dead.

My immediate thought went to rhinos but then again they are poached and therefore all rule of law out the window.
