Moose antlers stolen in Ely

7 posts in this topic

There was a break in at Henry's Shoe Repair in Ely, early this morning, and some of his collection of Moose Horns were stolen. The thief removed all of them from the store and proceded to sort them out in the parking lot next to it.He took the best ones, some of which have a stained leaf pattern on them (from leaves laying on them in the woods after being shed)). Henry doesn't have much money, and the cost of repairing the smashed window was a major blow to him. If you hear of anyone trying to sell moose horns, or showing off some newly aquired ones with these markings, please notify authorities. Thanks.

I picked up a moose hide belt from Henry last year, and spoke with him a few minutes when I was up for bear hunting this year again.... Pisses me off to hear what some people will do.

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
