we have euonymous bushes that are at least 23 years old and are very tall and bushy (where the deer haven't eaten them). We would like to trim them back. Can we have them trimmed now or is it too late in the spring? When is the best time to trim them?

You did not mention what type of euonymus you have. Evergreen euonymus can be pruned mid to late spring and usually withstand heavy pruning.
Deciduous euonymus - prune in late winter or early spring.
