    Saturday afternoon I got a text from a buddy while I was working out in the garage asking if I wanted to go shed hunting. I could have used a break so I said sure! We put a few miles under our boots without any sheds. While on our way back to the car we were talking about how we wanted to find a hanger and a set of locked bucks. I said the chances are much better of finding a hanger. Not 3 minutes later we walked up on this guy scoring 70 2/8 with a 26" main beam

    Frign sweet. I have only found two , but my first one was the match to a big eight. Walked by it several times until it almost hit me in the face. Found my second in the same area the next year. You can tell they purposely put their antler between limbs to pull the bone off. So cool. Never thought I would find one in my life either
