Well-known taxidermist drowns in Tillamook Bay

Friday, November 24, 2006

Well-known waterfowl hunter and taxidermist David Boys of Molalla drowned during a duck hunting trip at Tillamook Bay, authorities said Thursday.

The body of Boys, 63, was found near a bay jetty at 7:11 p.m. Wednesday. Boys' body was found about 40 minutes after his hunting partner, Worth Matheson of Amity, reported him missing.

A U.S. Coast Guard report said the men had taken separate boats into the bay, where they were separated by wind and outgoing tides. Matheson said Boys was wearing a life jacket.

The Coast Guard and local fire and rescue teams searched for Boys by boat and helicopter.

Boys ran Artistic Taxidermy at 5700 S.E. Foster Road in Portland.

The Tillamook County Sheriff's Office said it will continue to investigate the death.
