By Magical Madge – The first and last time I went duck hunting was in the late 70’s with my brother, Chris. I recall…

  1. It was so damn cold…and I hate being cold
  2. The beautiful yet barren Mississippi Delta landscape resonated
  3. Hearing my brother call the ducks was fun and fascinating
  4. Thrilled I was when a group of honkers far, far away obviously made a decision to come down and tell us “hello”
  5. A palpitating excitement quickened my breath as the posse arrived above our heads
  6. The sound of gunfire scared me and made me sad when I saw them both drop and alight

I haven’t been back since.
