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.
