Got my new 2004-5 Yellowbook , yellow pages today.

Submitted by Richard C on 01/15/2004. ( )

For the greater Boston area whitch includes 28 cities plus Boston proper. It's 2 1/2 inches thick,1408 yellow pages and 403 black and white business listing pages for a grand total of 1811 pages. There are 3, yes three Taxidermists listings. Two (2) are the same guy and his address AND phone number are INCORRECT. That leaves ONE taxidermist in the book and he is a retired fireman.
So all you guys and gals crying about ALL the Taxidermists in your area and not getting enough work , GO EAST young men and women.
There is also NO repo fish taxidermist here anymore.

How did Massachusetts get that close to New Jersey. My Atlas must be messed up.

Where did you get get those numbers ? That Boston area has at least 3 million people. There are more homeless people living under bridges , in train tunnels and in boxes on heat venting grates than you probably have in all your county. Where you from ?
Thr taxidermist in Lee near Pittsfield just died, one on the other (south) side of Boston just bailed with everyones stuff, capes, skins, antlers, horns , frozen specimens and deposits, not to be found.

I got those numbers off the top of my head. Just made them up. It was ment as a joke. I do know that when I was in Shirley, There were not many deer that came in each season. but that was a life time ago.

Yup I'm from mass and its pretty scarce

I think its due to the preponderance of liberals....I don't mean to offend anyone, but i think its the truth...if you go to "taxidermists webpages" You'll find there are a few in Mass...of course one of the links doesn't, hes working on that i believe...I was happy to find a taxidermist near me in Littleton, MA. Anyone else from around here?

Tenbears, did you live in Shirley?

This response submitted by Cecil on 01/16/2004. ( )

I used to live within five miles of Shirley as a kid when my dad was in the military. I fished Shirley reservoir a few times too. I have a friend in Ayer by the name of Gregg Kendall that knew a taxidermist in the area -- maybe it was you?

I didn't know you were making a joke , sorry .
There are a lot of deer around eastern Mass now. They are even in the suburbs and edges of the cities. There was a 5 point in the city I live , a photo was in the paper. In Carlile , Ma , (near Shirley)some of those million dollar houses have deer proof fences to keep the deer from eating the expensive landscaping. Turkeys also are everywhere, there the new pest species.
SeaBass, don't worry it's OK to offend liberals , they offend me by just breathing. Hope to see you at the CAT show in Cromwell , CT in the spring.

I hear ya on the deer

This response submitted by SeaBass on 01/29/2004. ( )

In acton, where I live, the deer are shy enough that they just stare at you on the side of the road, and yes, most people around here are more interested in keeping them off their (I'm right near carlisle, btw) I hope to be at the Conn show, never been to one, I'm brand new to this taxidermy stuff.
