I'm No Coleopterist

I've never seen one of these in Minnesota in my 39 years.

About the same coloring as a June bug, which are common, but more than twice the size. Flatter head/thorax/abdomen that a June bug, too, to my untrained eye. Big-ass pinchers and wings under the shell, I presume. I don't think it's a stag beetle or a ground beetle.

If you can identify this hog, please let me know in a comment to this post.
