View Full Version : Terminology Pet Peeves

I have been thinking of starting this thread for a while. What are your pet peeves when it comes to hunting? One of mine is the incorrect use of the word "stock"

I was "stocking" the antelope. The correct way to say it is...I was "stalking" the antelope.

The correct use of these words is:

Stocking: What a woman wears on her feet and legs.

Stock: That is the wood or composite thing on your rifle.

Stalk and Stalking: The correct words for sneaking up on critters.

How folks say calibers...


.223 = two twenty three....not two two three or 2 hundred twenty three.

My biggest gripe are the folks that discuss gun control on the TV from both politicians and news anchors. They don't know the difference between semi-auto and automatic, and that a "clip" is not the same thing as a "magazine". They routinely call ammunition rounds as bullets.

Besides what the idiots on TV say, I don't personally like calling antlers by the name of "horns".

Those are all of my pet peeves too! Some others are when someone says I saw four doe today, when it should be does. If I hear I smoked him one more time I am going to puke.

A the mountain goat, chamois, tahr and muskox are technically antelope as well.

When I am hunting deer in antelope country or antelope in deer country, I use the term "goat" to distinguish an antelope buck from other deer. I know it is not correct but it saves confusion in the field.

I totally get that. For me it is the general use of the word instead of Pronghorn or Antelope.

The pronghorn (Antilocapra americana) is a species of artiodactyl mammal endemic to interior western and central North America. Though not an antelope, it is often known colloquially in North America as the prong buck, pronghorn antelope, or simply antelope,[3] as it closely resembles the true antelopes of the Old World and fills a similar ecological niche due to convergent evolution.[4] It is the only surviving member of the family Antilocapridae.[5] During the Pleistocene period, 12 antilocaprid species existed in North America.[6] About five existed when humans entered North America[citation needed] and all but A. americana are now extinct.[5]

That is directly from wikipedia.... but I also still call them antelope.

Not sure about the others but I kinda doubt that Musk Ox are technically antelope.

Either way, my pet peeve is more directed a the hunting t.v. shows that make hunting a team sport. I think they should build themselves an arena and let us have comfortable seats and popcorn and pay to watch who kills the most turkeys and whitetails.

Yeah because pronghorn is a entirely different species! I have a whole book on them and did 2 reports on them! Pronghorn is the only one of its kind.

"Don't pass on the first day what you would shoot on the last".

"Tag soup".

Harvest never really bothers me. I kill deer, then I take them home and eat them, so I harvest them, as opposed to crows or woodchucks, which I simply kill. Actually though, where I grew up, we never used kill or harvest. We used "got." I.E., "Did you get a buck." "Yah, I got a turdy pointer."

I named him goliath as soon as I put my crosshairs on em from my two two three. I said to myself. " dont pass on the first day a stud buck like this if ill take him the last day" i wanted to shoot fast so I wouldnt loose him. After harvesting the buck I was super stoked I didnt end up with tag soup.

His horns scored 94 7/8 net!! My friend who is the best guide in the state measured him.

At the end of my article I would like to thank my unnamed brother who carried out all the meat while I took pics and my unnamed nephew who actually found my buck of a lifetime, as well as my good buddy who didn't get a deer this year because he did all the scouting for me. I also took him along on my elk hunt because I didn't know how to bugle.

I would also like to thank myself for enduring my incredible training regimen that got me into sheep shape even though I was only hunting whitetailed deer. All that extra time at the range really paid off when after shooting 7 times, I accidentally shot the buck in the rear end at 800 yards and somehow cut an artery. Somehow, that long-range shooting prowess didn't make it into the article. But, we did high fives all around and just couldn't believe how much we under estimated the size of this buck. No ground shrinkage on this one.

A special thanks to my wife for understanding why I spent all our money and was gone six months again this year, leaving her to raise our kids alone when she wasn't working her other job. She's a jewel and I really don't deserve her. I am looking forward to the time when I can take the kids with me and pass along this heritage.

I would also like to thank my Creator for making this big buck and allowing me to luck into him. It really was the buck of a lifetime because he's the only one I've ever killed.

Admittedly I call "Pronghorn" either antelope or goats. My guess is a majority of Wyoming residents do the same. We know it's wrong, but we don't care.

So, if I come to Nevada, where would I find a honey hole? :D

In the desert rite by the rocks and sage brush. But don't tell anyone. It's my super secret spot! Lol

It's nicer to just say "I'm new, I'm looking for your honey hole; I will only shoot something decent from it and be sure to send you pictures." Awaiting the flood of PMs, thank you.

If people were 100% honest, lots of them would say, "I'm looking for a great spot to hunt with lots of bucks. I'll never contact you again, even to say thank you if I get one."

I feel that's rude and that the person forthcoming with info should at least be mentioned as a consultant in the e-article.

For instance, if I go to Nevada now and shoot something next to some rocks and sage I will mention hunting consultant IKIC.

I think it's not only the majority of WY residents..... It's something that just got picked up through out the west!:)

All I ask in return is you mention me if you happen to come to TX and shoot anything between the Rio Grande & Red River.

So did csi Las Vegas so I boycotted them.

This reminded me of the episode where they went up to To-nap-a instead of Tone-a-paw (Tonopah). The funny part was when they kept repeating it. Or Ver-dee for Verdi.

This whole thread cracks me up! Funny stuff!

I did quite a bit of hunting out there while I was in school in San Antonio. Them animals have to love licking rocks to survive out that way.

Just saw my biggest one ever! Can't believe I didn't think of it before. When somebody on the forum (usually a newbie posting his first thread) says "Not looking for anyone's honey hole"

Hey guys new here looking for some info on where to hunt. Not looking for anyone's honey hole BUT any info would be much appreciated.

I don't know why but WTFranks and Beans!!

Perhaps a poor choice of words if you are specifically pointing at mine. I tried to illustrate that i was looking for general comments on difficulty level, access problems, etc. for that time of year without making a laundry list of questions. This is the first time out of state for me, and I was trying to eliminate an 8hr+++ blunder because I don't know anything about the area. I was dying laughing going through this, and it just got worse when I realized I had made the "wall of shame". The only thing that makes me feel a little better is the first time I heard the term was on an Eastman Hunting Show.

Have you ever noticed that 99% of the BS "malarky" terms in hunting come from the south?
