Translation: New Antlers Lake
Feature: lake

In early September, male caribou rub the velvet off their antlers. After the velvet has come off, they have a new pair of antlers which is fully-grown and hard, and they are now ready for mating. There used to be many caribou in the area of this lake and the Innu would have seen a lot of velvet pieces hanging from trees and shrubs.
