Since acquiring Maddie from the Cobb County Animal Shelter in Atlanta, Ga., owner Theron Humphrey has photographed her in a variety of, shall we say, interesting places—inside a tractor tire in Cedar Creek, Texas, atop a traffic light in Austin, Texas, on a bird house in Lawrence, Kan., and even above a basketball rim in Des Moines, Iowa, to name a few.

On the Sanity of Goose Hunters

There are many who are content to sit over a duck-heavy spread with a dozen Canada dekes pitched on the upwind edge, their reward being the occasional “bonus” goose. But the honker hunters I admire most are those who set up specifically for geese.
