G2 Wildlife Consulting President, Don Moore, is a consulting wildlife manager and deer steward. Growing up in Southwestern Pennsylvania, at an early age he developed a passion bordering on obsession for spending time outdoors and chasing whitetails. Don developed a respect for wildlife and the need for sound wildlife management principles. Along with being a member of his local hunting club and organizations such as the National Wild Turkey Federation and the Quality Deer Management Association where he earned his Deer Steward Certification, he also attended Penn Foster College where he studied Wildlife/Forestry Conservation.
Don has studied under the nation’s top deer researchers, managers and wildlife biologists. These individuals have helped fine tune Don into the deer steward he is today. Don regularly attends seminars and demonstrations on all aspects of white-tailed deer biology and management learning all the newest trends. In addition to studying deer, he also works on projects managing wild turkey and their habitat as well.
Don has decided to take what he has learned and apply it in his home state of Pennsylvania. He will be starting up his wildlife consulting business within the next year. Ironically, the quality deer management movement is just now starting to spread across a few of the northern states. Don is bringing his knowledge and experience to help with the demand from private landowners and hunting clubs who want to transform their hunting grounds into a hunting paradise improving quality deer herds, quality habitats, and quality hunting experiences. Don is hoping to answer this demand and bring a new dynamic to help the average sportsman who does not own hundreds of acres of property
I have been an avid outdoorsman with an appreciation for the outdoors since I was a kid. I have been hunting ever since I can remember. Growing up in the southern tier of Western New York has given me a love and desire for hunting whitetail deer. For many years now I have enjoyed managing the whitetails on my property with QDM and food plots. I also have hunted in a number of other states and Canada in which I have harvested various species. Through my travels and many years of hunting experience I have had the chance to harvest many record book animals with both a gun and bow.
After attending the Missouri Institute of Taxidermy I started my own Taxidermy business and later became the owner of Royal Trophy Outfitters of New Mexico, LLC in which I offer hunts in four different states. Both businesses have afforded me great opportunities for hunting, traveling and meeting many diverse people. Due to the success of the Outfitting business I have been fortunate enough to have been featured on a number of hunting television shows.
With the support of my wife of ten years who understands and accepts my busy and sometimes unpredictable out of town schedule I am lucky enough to be doing everything that I love doing. I have already begun introducing my three year old daughter, Lillian, to the joy of the outdoors. This has already given us a strong relationship and I anticipate doing the same with our next child. I believe that it is important to introduce kids to the outdoors and get them involved at an early age.
