Today’s episode is with a pretty special guest. In this podcast, I am joined by Mr. James Philips aka Antlerman. Mr. Philips started picking up shed antlers over 60 years ago and has been doing ever since with a passion and precision that will rival any man. James not only picked up antlers for 60 years but he saved nearly all of them except for a couple thousand back in the day to put his girls through college. As many of you know, I love talking with Old Timers or folks with lots of experience, this was no exception. I absolutely loved getting a tour of the shed shack where he has the majority of his 16,000 plus antler collection, and hearing the stories. In 60 years of shed hunting, James has come across some very interesting finds lying around in the woods and I am just happy we get to sit down, hear some cool stories and share a moment this the Antlerman. If you guys are ever in Three Forks Montana I suggest you look him up and take a tour through James’ collection.
