Brothers in business ... Mark, left, and Mick Trask are the owners and operators of Dakota Trophy Taxidermy, the third such business run by local entrepreneurs. “The Trask boys have the perfect opportunity for the business,” said mentor and professional taxidermist Marty Hansen.
A new business has been started, owned and operated by two brothers who graduated from Philip High School. Mark Trask, a 2008 graduate, and Mick Trask, 2009, have started the Dakota Trophy Taxidermy business.
Mark said, "I'm an avid hunter, like to fish, and am fairly artsy with drawing, carving and making things out of clay. Taxidermy involves a lot of the same skills. We were around Marty Hansen's taxidermy shop a lot when we were kids. He was a big influence on both of us."
Mick said, "It's something I've always wanted to do since I was in kindergarten.
