“I’m 37 years old and a boilermaker by trade. I started coon huntin’ with my dad at a very young age, matter of fact I was in diapers! We hunted all the time. As I grew, I started squirrel hunting with my power line 880 pellet riffle, it was a blast. Dad bought me my very first shot gun when I was 8 so I got to try it out on some eastern Kentucky rabbits. Shortly after, it was time to deer hunt, and boy what a rush! I’ve been hooked ever since. I would rather hunt as to eat or sleep, and I sure like to eat but the best part is, I get to share the same addiction that my dad put instilled into me with my children . I will never forget that first deer hunt or any other time I spent with my daddy in the woods and I am blessed to get to share it with others. This is who I am and I am grateful for what my daddy has taught me. If it takes me the rest of my life I WILL make my dream come true Antler Addiction is a one of a kind team, and with that said, meet my partners!”
Hello everybody, I'm Josh Hanshew! I was born and raised in the small town of Meadow Bridge, West Virginia. I'm thirty three years old and consider myself as an avid outdoors man. From trout fishing early in the year to late season bow hunting in the last few days in December, I do every kind of hunting and fishing in between. I give my Dad all the credit for my love of the outdoors. He carried me on his shoulders in the woods when I was a young child. I have so many memories and good times in the last thirty years of hunting and fishing together. I will never forget the first buck I killed with him at the age of ten, I remember it like it was yesterday. I am following in my Father's footsteps also. I have carried my daughter on my shoulders several times while scouting or setting out cameras. I have a newborn son that I can't wait to introduce to the outdoors! I pray that I have the patience with them that my Dad had with me! I have a passion for bow hunting, and love bow hunting Southern West Virginia's bow only counties. Southern West Virginia has a lot of public hunting property, park service property, and wildlife management property, so I take full advantage of this land! I also hunt a lot of private property and I'm very thankful for the people that have given me the opportunity to hunt on their land. I am thankful for the opportunity to be on the pro staff team with Antler Addiction. I know I have joined a group of guys that share the same passion for the outdoors that I have. Thanks for checking our page out! I believe in Antler Addiction and our products. Give our mineral a try, I promise you won't regret it. Hope to see you in the woods or on a creek bank one day!
“I WAS BORN 08-31-1953 IN GREENUP, KENTUCKY. I AM A RETIRED BOILERMAKER, OUT OF LOCAL 40. I STARTED RABBIT HUNTING AT THE AGE OF 14 WITH MY DAD AND BROTHERS. I GOT MARRIED IN MARCH OF 1974. GROWING UP BACK IN THOSE DAYS, THERE WERE NOT MANY DEER IN MY PART OF THE COUNTRY, SO WE HUNTED FOR WHAT WAS PLENTIFUL. I GOT INTO COON HUNTING AROUND 1968 AND TO THIS DAY IT IS STILL A PASSION OF MINE. IN 1978 I WENT TO THE UKC WORLD HUNT WITH THE HIGHEST RANKING FEMALE OF THE ENTIRE HUNT. I GOT INTO WHITETAIL HUNTING WHEN I MET MY WIFE. IT TOOK MANY OF YEARS TO KILL MY FIRST DEER, THEY WERE SCARCE AND YOU COULD ONLY HARVEST A BUCK. I HARVESTED A NICE KENTUCKY 8 POINTER AND I WAS HOOKED! I HAVE A DAUGHTER AND A SON. MY DAUGHTER IS A NURSE AND MY SON A BOILERMAKER, ALSO THE OWNER OF ANTLER ADDICTION. MY LUNGS ARE NOT IN GOOD SHAPE THESE DAYS, SO I AM LIMITED AS TO WHERE I CAN HUNT. THERE IS ONE THING I HAVE LEARNED IN MY MANY YEARS IN THE WOODS, THOUGH, YOU HAVE TO LEARN TO ADAPT! I AM ENJOYING MY RETIREMENT AS MUCH AS MY DISABILITIES WILL ALLOW!”
