Watch for moose antlers

Moose ring in the new year by dropping their antlers around this time, in late December and early January. Deer may keep their horns till February. Discarded antlers are gnawed by mice, hares, porcupines and other vegetarians to obtain calcium and salt, in short supply during winter.
