Chris Higdon


Born and raised in Northeastern Pennsylvania Chris was introduced to the outdoors by his father. At age six he first picked up a bow and arrow and began what would be a long, dedicated, and passionate pursuit for whitetail deer. The love for whitetail deer soon spun into the desire to learn more about all outdoor activities including upland hunting, turkey hunting, and fishing. Today at age twenty-six, Chris still lives in Northeastern Pennsylvania with his bird dog, a five year old English Setter named Bentley. Striving to educate himself and others on the lifestyle of an outdoorsman, Chris created a online destination for all of those who have a love for the outdoors, crave to learn more, and share pictures and stories.
