Don Causey is founder and president of Oxpecker Enterprises, Inc., the company that founded and published for many years The Hunting Report and The Angling Report newsletters. He continues to publish The Angling Report, overseeing all aspects of the publishing company's functions, including the editing and production of the newsletter.
The Hunting Report, which he sold in August 2008, has been in continuous publication for 27 years, offering international hunters a monthly briefing of new opportunities and challenges worldwide. The publication was widely viewed as the authority on world hunting, and it used its unique "bully pulpit" to champion ethical behavior on the part of hunting outfitters, hunting agents and hunting clients.
An avid sportsman, Causey has fished and hunted all over the world, and he has been involved in every major development affecting hunting and fishing since 1981 when he began publishing The Hunting Report. Prior to that, Causey served as executive editor of Outdoor Life magazine. Before that, he was a reporter for the prestigious News and Observer newspaper in Raleigh, North Carolina, and a freelance writer for major national and international publications. Causey earned a bachelors and masters degree in English from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. He is a former National Rifle Association board member, and an active member of Safari Club International and other similar organizations.
