Don Higgins has been a regular contributor to North American Whitetail magazine for over a decade. His articles on hunting mature whitetail bucks have also appeared in Petersens Bowhunting, Bowhunter, Outdoor Life, Buckmasters, Whitetail Journal and numerous other magazines. His plain spoken and tell-it-like-it-is writings are very popular amongst a loyal following of readers. His popular book “Hunting Trophy Whitetails in the Real World” is now in its second printing and details a lifetime of lessons learned while pursuing hard hunted whitetail bucks in the “real world”.
Dons pursuit of mature whitetail bucks is a year ’round passion that does not have an off-season. When his Mathews launches an arrow at a monster whitetail it is often the result of years of effort, doing things the hard way rather than looking for shortcuts. When Don is not actually hunting whitetails, he is often helping others find hunting success through his business Higgins Outdoors inc. Don is one of the most sought after habitat specialist in the Midwest and has created thousands of acres of prime wildlife habitat. His services include tree plantings, native grass plantings and consultations for land owners looking to improve the habitat and hunting success on their own properties. Don is the only whitetail consultant who has harvested a wild whitetail over 200″+ with a bow and who has a client who has harvested a 200″+ buck with a bow after hiring him to consult on his hunting property. Both bucks were shot with Mathews bows by the way.
