Ben Mears took an interest in taxidermy at 12 years old. Since then, he has honed his skill of mounting deer, participating in competitions and making his own forms after careful study of the whitetail deer. He has reached the "specialist" ranks due to his appreciation of the beauty of the whitetail deer, and helping people remember their hunt by preserving the animal is truly special.

Austin Delano | Food Plot Guru
Austin Delano has been working for Mossy Oak BioLogic for 10 years. He is the resident "Food Plot Guru" for the South, a title he's arrived at through trial and error. He became hooked on farming for wildlife when he helped grow and protect a buck for five years. Austin takes us through a cool season food plot planting, from soil prep to seeding. “At the end of the day," he said, "I’m still just a kid who loves to play in the dirt and watch stuff grow.”
