Check out page 12.  The title is "Stuff It" with a quick history of taxidermy from 2600 B.C.  (told you it wasn't rocket science) through Charles Peale (1800), Martha Maxwell (1876), Carl Akeley (1920) and Jonas Brothers along with several of this years show dates and explanations.

 I didn't see it yet George but I'll certainly find a copy at the airport. Outdoor Life called us a while back for some info. Sure hope they were on track in the article. Our oldest mount of a wild turkey was done by Charles Wilson Peale way back in 18th century. It's still at the American Philosophical Hall in Philadelphia just around the corner from Independence Hall.

It might have been a re run but I just saw a episode of CSI, or one of the shows, that had a taxidermist that was killing people and using their eyes in his mounts.

That was an episode of 'Criminal Minds'.  Freaky.

If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

There was an episode of NCIS, 2nd season - "THE MEAT PUZZLE".  A family run Mortuary kidnaps NCIS Medical Examiner Dr. "Ducky" Mallard, to avenge one son's incarceration, and they interview the other son, who is a Taxidermist ... and who IS NOT a murderer ... just ... really involved in his Taxidermy!  Even has a recreation Panda ... no, nothing even approaching Ken Walker's Panda! ;)  He keeps telling the agents which mount won what at World and Nationals!  The mother in this episode was one crazy, freaky bytch!  She and her favorite son - the felon - is about to drain the Doc's blood and embalm him alive when the agents break in and rescue their Doctor.  Then mama's boy slits his own throat to keep from going back to prison.  One wild episode.  Okay, so the Taxidermist is quirky - aren't we all - but he is not the crazed killer!

My favorite exchange in this episode:
KATE: Gibbs, what did Ducky look like when he was younger?

(Gibbs glances over at Ducky.)

GIBBS: Illya Kuryakin.

"Ducky" is played by David McCallum who played spy Illya Kuryakin in "The Man From U.N.C.L.E."  Cool, huh?

John.

I love that show.  And John, when he said it, I almost fell off the chair until I realized that probably 90% of the audience had no idea what he was talking about with Illya Kuryakin.  There are so many other subliminal remarks, comments and actions there that people outside the military won't get either.  The CSI show just explained their total ignorance of taxidermy.

LOL!  Chery and I both LOVE that line!  You're right ... there are so many quotes to other sources.  It's one of the things that makes the show so cool!  Great TV show!  Glad to find another fan here!  Ooh-rah!  No ... I was never Military ... just LaSalle Military Academy in the ninth grade.  My mother thought it would "straighten me out" ... it didn't take! ;D
