No problem, I have been trying to post some pics and a video and they seem to be wrong format or too big.

Doesn't look like much to do in Ontario. ;D

I'm a long way from there so can't be much help, you will have to get on the inter/web and check out what there is to see and do.

The only time you are likely to hit the antlers on a buck is when you miss him. :(

Wow, very nice!!!!  I noticed the - temps.  burrr.  BTW, would the buck on the second picture be a shooter, or he is still too young???  Seem like his antlers are not thick.

Unfortunately he probably would get shot but it would be nice to get heavier.

Pretty sure he's on the trail cam, he should be bigger next year. :)

I will check at my barbers tomorrow. :)

My feeding rig and crew.

The old Case and the feed wagon haul the grain and alfalfa pellets that I feed in a cement bunk.

The John Deere with the bale processor grind out the hay and put it in a row. I also bed with straw blown out on the bed ground.

That's Ace with me, Buster another collie dog is always around but didn't get in the picture.
That's it for the everyday crew. In the morning I feed about 250 weaned calves and 26 bulls.
I have the cows out in the hills and they have protein tubs and I haul pellets out every couple days with my 4x4 Power wagon.
The last time I was out I saw a cow moose and the time before 6 bull Elk.

Got a few more pics off the trial cam.
I need to put in fresh batteries as I think the cold weather got to them.

That's nice, always good when you can put them together. :)

Usually I hear about gator or snake problems here in Florida.  A bear attack in Florida is a new one for me.  :)

What about the "cougars" you fight off down at the Villages? ;D

A nice morning in Grassland, Ab its -42° C dont know what that is on the F scale but i know -40 is where the 2 scales meet lucky there is no wind.

But it's a dry cold ;) so you hardly notice it. ;D

"The pattern is not a typical pixel- or tree-style variation. Instead, it’s a proprietary mix of “crackalature” shapes and colors derived through nature-based algorithms and oriented for macro and micro disruption."

That's exactly what I thought when I first looked at it. ;) :)

Pretty sharp. :)

Must be hard to leave the house. Thank you for sharing. In the thumbnail I thought the big buck was an Elk.

The other morning i went out in the dark shortly after 7am. Right at the corner of the house the big buck startled and then went and stood on the other side of my Power wagon. He must have thought he was hid as he couldn't see me but I could see his antlers over the side of the box as I stood quietly waiting. I could see him tip toe away to the fence then hop over and walk away. I then continued on to the barn. :)

Hopefully they stay around a little longer so you can get some cool sheds

The bigger buck left his for me right under the bin. :)
