You can sit in the very blind where Don Higgins shot Smokey!

Have you ever wanted to see the exact stand set-ups where veteran whitetail hunter Don Higgins has killed some of his mature bucks? Wouldn’t it be neat to sit in the very blind where Don Higgins shot a 206” buck and see the exact layout of the property? Or maybe see the very stand where he encountered his 214” buck from 2004? Now you can do all of these things and more by attending the most informative, no BS course of its kind anywhere.

For years Don Higgins has shared his knowledge about consistently tagging giant mature bucks through magazine articles, books, seminars, and consulting visits to client’s properties. Now you can visit Don’s very own Central Illinois property and see how it is set up to kill the biggest buck there EVERY SEASON! This one day course will be approximately half indoors and half in the field. Students will actually visit 2 different properties where Don has killed giant mature bucks to get a better feel for how it is done and what it takes. Before taking to the field you will see a video of hunts from the very stands that will be visited later as well as aerial photos of the properties as Don explains each set-up. See the exact stands where true giant bucks were killed and listen to Don explain why he placed his stands in those locations. Students will even be able to climb into the blind where Don shot Smokey, his 206” buck from 2017. No other class offers you a first-hand look at proven results and takes you to the exact spots where it happened!
