    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.
    Grand Slam #1005 + 2: Dall (1986 Yukon), Fannin (1987 Yukon), Bighorn (1988 Colorado Unit S-26), Stone (1995 British Columbia), Desert (2001 Nevada Unit 161), Bighorn (2009 Wyoming Unit 5)

    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.
