Don Jr. grew up hunting whitetails on public land with his father and brothers in southern Illinois. His hard work at home in real estate allowed him the lifetime dream of buying his first tract of land in Schuyler County, IL. Over the past 20 years since he has been able to add properties in Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and New Mexico. Being able to hunt mature bucks in quality management areas has given him the knowledge to become more successful and take numerous record book whitetails. What he enjoys most is buying properties, developing them, and then spending time there with family and friends. In addition to being a part of the Whitetail Explorer team, Don has also filmed for the Hunter’s Specialties Prime Time series.
