    That's pretty funny. Just this morning a guy that lets me hunt his property asked if caught any deers. It drives me crazy. He asks me the same thing every time I stop at the house.

    I always go cross-eyed when someone writes.... "I was stocking this buck".

    "Stocking" is something a woman wears on her feet and legs.

    "Stalking" is when a hunter sneaks up on an animal to "harvest" it.

    how about people referring to elk as "stags"

    I saw a stag when I was out west in Colorado... really? aren't stags in europe? haha.

    or how about when people are clueless to what a deer is, vs. an elk, vs. a moose, vs a caribou...


    I remember in college some girl at a party was like "oh oh look at the moose! on tv.... it was a caribou or elk... not a moose!

    at least call it a reindeer... but don't call a caribou a moose or elk... lol.

    Actually all of them are subspecies of deer. Moose being the largest of the clan, and the Alaska-Yukon and Kamchakta moose being the largest of all deer on the planet.

    A lot of people call pronghorn antelope "goats". And even their scientific name is antelocapra americana, not capra anything, so they are NOT goats. But I don't really get upset about that either.

    And reindeer and caribou are the same sub species of deer, both are rangifer tarandus.

    Of course the stag thing really isn't that big either. Red deer are cervus elaphus and American elk are cervus canadus. So that's not that much of a difference. As European moose (elch, Alg, elk, in the native language) are alces alces, and ours are alces shirasi, alces gigas, alces andersoni or alces americana.

    Calling a elk a stag isn't taxanomically as wrong as calling a pronghorn a goat.

    Either way I think it's kind of silly to get worked up over. Then again I hate the term harvest, with a passion so to each his own.

    Ivory tip what do you call a herd of moose anyway? A flight? A bundle? A sack? A muster of moose?

    i belive they call it "yarding" not common to see large groups of moose together, however, i have seen a bachelor herd of 5 bulls together once and that was wierd.

    I don't watch many huniting shows, simply because I don't think like many of them. One word that has made into the hunting world that I cannot stand is, "ATHLETE". Since when do you have to be an athelete to be a hunter?? When I was in high school all the "athletes" were at practice while I was out killing deer, now they all sit on their azz and watch football while I'm out hunting. You don't have to be an athlete to be an excellant hunter.
