New tactics needed for late-season bucks

in
010415 Williams Buck BW.jpg

When the New Orleans Saints, bless their hearts, were down 20-7 at halftime and on the verge of losing the last game of the season to lowly Tampa Bay, adjustments were made at halftime to allow the team to eke out a win albeit a meaningless one.
By the same token, as deer season reaches its final weeks, it’s often necessary for hunters to adjust their game plans. Why? Because the bucks are making adjustments and if hunters don’t figure out what’s going on, they’re left with only packages of beef, pork, chicken but no venison in the freezer.

Vintage trailers return

in

There’s nothing fancy about Debbie Click’s 1952 Vagabond travel trailer. Its dull, gray exterior finish is chipped and scratched — except for one place: the large hand-painted purple letters spelling the phrase “Laisser les bons temps Rouler.”
Let the good times roll — the English translation of the Cajun French axiom — is exactly what Click and other area vintage travel trailer enthusiasts try to do at least every three months. The group spent the New Year’s holiday camping at Lincoln Parish Park.

Hood exhibit continues through Jan. 19

For Shawn Hood, photography is much more than just a job or hobby.
“I don’t know if I have a style as much as I almost have a mission with my photography,” Hood said. “When I look through the lens of my camera, for me, I am looking through a window into another world. It transports me to the moment in time that I’m experiencing, and I want to experience it through my lens and I capture it. For me, it’s about recording those images that moved me and make me ask the questions about life that my mind keeps trying to ask about every single thing.”

Broadening the imagination

in
Darden, Jessica 2014.jpg

I have never been much of a TV watcher. I was always been more of a reader.
But in recent years I have found myself latching on to a few television shows to the point that I would say is a tad obsessive.
There is one thing in common with the books I read and the shows I watch. I become deeply connected to the characters.
I talk about them as if they are real people — sometimes they are or were real people in the books.
Most recently I started watching the show “Bones” and just this week I started reading “American Sniper.”
