Louisiana’s Regional Director Justin Higdon has been a part of the Delta family since 2012: First as a volunteer, then as Chairman of the Northeast Louisiana committee in 2020 and 2021. He’s also been a member of the Delta Waterfowl Louisiana State Committee since 2018.

Higdon grew up hunting on public land refuges near his hometown of Monroe, Louisiana. “As a kid, the adventure of taking a boat ride or a four-wheeler was just as much a part of the fun as watching my first duck dog, Jake, make his retrieves,” Higdon remembers fondly. He went on to attend the University of Louisiana at Monroe and graduated in 2006.

His passion for hunting – and his love for duck dogs – are both lifelong. Now, Higdon hunts at his duck club in Collinston, Louisiana. He relishes the opportunity to spend time outdoors with friends and his two Labradors, Cash and Pearl.

He’s looking forward to the challenge – and adventure – of his new role at Delta. “I’ve made a lot of really good friends through Delta Waterfowl,” Higdon says. “I look forward to the opportunity to make new ones and I continue to expand my involvement with the Organization.”

When he’s not hunting ducks or training dogs, he enjoys traveling with his wife, Amy, and playing golf.
