    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.

    Harvest. I killed that deer. No harvesting was conducted.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    Or calling buck fawns 'button bucks'. You shot a fawn, now man up and accept it.

    Calling antelope "goats" gets kind of annoying.

    But I guess calling them antelope is no better than calling them goats since they are actually neither of those.
