Don Higgins has a resume as a whitetail land consultant that is both unique and unmatched in the hunting industry. Don is the only consultant that has killed multiple bucks scoring over 200" and has multiple clients who have killed bucks scoring over 200" after his visit to their properties. For nearly two decades Don worked as a conservation contractor planting trees, shrubs and native grasses on thousands of acres across the Midwest. This first-hand experience has given Don the knowledge to properly advise his clients on these topics.
For over 20 years Don has authored hard-hitting magazine articles on hunting mature bucks that have appeared in all of the major deer hunting magazines. He has also authored two books on the same topic. Don has not let the success go to his head however; he remains a humble down-to-earth country boy that enjoys meeting and talking with deer hunters who share his passion for chasing big mature bucks.

"New and Unusual Buck Tactics prove Deadly"
Learn where to create bedding areas based on trail camera time frames. See how we are able to profile certain bucks. Witness how oak trees are singularly isolated into producing maximum hunter success.
Condition mature bucks into using certain trails. Learn how we developed a new tactic using "cluster scrapes" to force nocturnal or pressured bucks into making a mistake. See never before seen techniques of attractant scent use. Learn about a once secret buck attractant formulation that can be made at home for pennies. Last, "Mock Scrapes", the deadliest tactic of all is thoroughly revealed. Consider this, scrapes are simply a form of communication between deer throughout the year, but to a deer hunter there is no other sign in the woods that gives up so much information about the local buck herd. These scrapes are absolutely the only means a hunter has in which to communicate directly with a buck, or bucks. See how we can virtually ask a buck a series of questions, and see how the bucks are forced to respond, plus much more.
My name is Matthew Badger. I have been running my own line since I was 13, I am 26 now. I work full time for local 440 I am a plumber. I have a wonderful wife and an amazing son. My son is 6 months old now so my line is not as big this season as it was last year, but I do all my own fur handling and have and have been doing that for the last 7 years. I have sold fur to Nafa and local buyers and auctions in the state of Indiana. I take ever chance I have to learn more about the fur industry witch includes fashion, fur prices and how fur is a natural sustainable and renewable resource. I trap coons, yotes, mink, muskrat, fox and beaver I enjoy every minute of it and love the tradition that has been passed on to me.
