    My girlfriend Skyler of four years loves to go shed hunting with me. However, she has never been successful in finding a shed. So for the last year I have been planning my engagement around shed hunting.

    A couple days before the big day I took her out to pour corn so I could have her attention in one spot. The morning of February 8th while she was at work my cousin Wayne (bowman) and I set up the spot. I dropped him off and he took the ring box in a plastic bag attached to the shed with fishing string and the video camera. He planted the shed near the corn pile that was now covered in snow. He sifted in his tracks and the antler, then he set up the video camera in a nearby brush pile and awaited our call.

    After 2 plus hours of waiting, Skyler was off work and we were on our way to the farm. When I got close I called Wayne, and that was his signal to start the recording and get hidden.

    As you will see in the video, she was more excited about the antler than she was the ring!!! haha

    Everything went perfect, better than planned. I couldn't have done it without the help of Wayne and his great attention to detail. Thank you again for giving up one of your few Saturdays with your family to help with the perfect engagement.

    I hope you guys enjoy the video attached in the link below. Sorry for the long read.
