At one time my favourite thing to do was go hunting and take trophies. Now my trophies are taken with a Nikon D-90 camera and a telephoto lens.

Not exactly Moose sheds, but a old skull we found that a Grizzly had been chewing on. My dog Missey with her find. A bull Moose with a nice rack developing. A real nice Black bear, and a Beaver checking us out.

Well to heck with bridge construction pictures and on with things I really enjoy doing. The Moose antler I am holding is the largest one I have ever found. Moose shed their antlers every Winter between the months of December to March. In the Spring they start growing new ones which grow quite rapidly, they are covered with velvet and fully grown again by August. At this time they start rubbing their antlers on small trees and bushes which removes all of the velvet.
The bird is a Stellar Jay they are very beautiful and very noisy. They are mainly found in the forests, and are usually not found in urban areas. They feed on seeds, berries, and will also feed on carrion.
The building is just a new shed which I built for my horses, on my next day off I will install the tin on the roof and pack some fine gravel around it.

Went out to the bush for a couple of days looking for last Winters shed Moose antlers. Found five real nice ones, and took a few pictures of a couple of beautiful Osprey, and a Squirell.
