Many people grow up wanting to be a professional baseball player, astronaut, fireman or something along those lines. Not everyone realizes those dreams in adulthood. Scott Moore, the owner of Mountain Man Taxidermy, did. Moore said he was eight years old when he knew - for sure - what he wanted to do. His mom brought home a buck she shot, and he wanted to keep the horns. She took him to the taxidermist, and he was blown away. Scott shot his first buck when he was 15 and asked a taxidermist if he would teach him the trade in exchange for some help around the shop. His apprenticeship turned into a career, and he took over Mountain Man Taxidermy when his predecessor retired in 1998. Moore said he's one of the most shop-experienced professional taxidermists in the area and that he aims to always produce a mounted trophy within a year of the request.
