When I was young or even now, when a hunter pops off more than 3 shots at a time while shooting, we say "That Dude just Went All Rambo", LOL...What about you all, any funny sayings?

Keeps the mood all lite and fun. Also, "Man, you really threw out some lead today"...It's all in jest and most I have hunted with see it just way and any that haven't have not been invited back...

When we were hunting elk in Pecos county. Spotting them immediately got an assessment. One of two choices were stated.

"Oh they're not handy."

or

"They're handy."

Meaning how difficult it was going to be getting an elk off of the side, or out of a canyon.

Here's one my brother & I heard many times from our dad. It was hard to tell if he was serious or kidding at first, but we still say it in jest & to remind ourselves of him. When it's the coldest nasties weather or conditions possible he'd say:

"A man could hunt all day on a day like this."

My dad always used to say his words after we were wore down, sore, frustrated, cold/hot discouraged...wonder what the poor folks are doing right now? I always yelled back...making piss poor clichés!

Thats why it's called hunting, not killing.

Spray & pray may be a useful technique in certain instances, but no where in hunting. You gotta aim, not just fart or throw crap in their general direction.

Any time you get skunked my Dad would say, "That's why they call it hunting, not killing" or "That's why they call it Fishing, not catching"...depending on the activity you were skunked at.

When my boy is getting restless in the stand I always say "Just takes a few seconds to change the day."

He told me a few weeks ago, you always say that and I keep waiting for those seconds. Lol.

"cedar football" when two people stay out longer than a task should take.

Person 1: "Donny and Albert have been out checking feeders for 2 hours, wonder what's taking so long."

Person 2: " Prolly got down there and decided to play a little cedar football."

Something to say when someone has gone somewhere you have no need to know...

"He went to see someone about a dog."

"He had to go tune a piano."

After completing a task that was feared to be difficult...

"Like pulling a greasy (censored) out of a bucket of lard."

Something I saw written on a small wall sign once at a craft fair...

"Deer tremble at the sound of my name."

One that evolved for us out of pretty innocuous circumstances:

Back in 1989 during one of the colder arctic fronts to ever blow down to South Texas, my Dad asked a friend of mine at about 2:00 AM in about 8 degrees, at the lease's little cinder block house, with only an old fireplace for warmth:

"Curtis, why don't you put another log on the fire" to which Curtis responded back to my Dad, "Hell Jerry, why don't you put another log on the fire".

To this day, when it gets cold one of our favorite lines is "Why don't you put another log on the fire"..

In reference to the guy in camp who never does any work, but is always, around, not really doing anything but appears involved, but only gets in the way of the real work getting done:

He's a Sack o' balls


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

Special events, including the exact spot where they happened, can become points of reference for future use. For example, I remember the time when a member whipped his dog almost mercilessly after it bayed an armadillo into a hole. There were many times after that when someone would say, "Do you remember where Ole Blue got his [censored] whipped?" The spot where someone missed a huge buck can also become a point for future reference.

Whether hunting or anything else my go to is:

"There it is if you like it, there it is if you don't".

Good for many situations.


It's nights like these that make me sleep all day

“Yeah, horns are cool, but ya cain’t eat ‘em!”

My Dad, after telling him I had passed up a four-point buck in hopes he would be bigger next year. In his defense, he had just been laid off, and had a wife and three teenagers to feed.

After scouting a likely new lease or checking game trails on your own lease.."You can't fry nuthin' but tracks" commenting on not seeing any critters themselves...or the value of the lease/hunting area being evaluated.

Grandad's Indian guide on one of his last carabou hunts in Alaska and the shooting skills needed for bringing anything into camp..."One Shot Meat! 2 shots uh mebbe Meat...3 shots NO MEAT." as the explanation of how much time you had to score a hit before they all disappeared over a ridge.

That saying became the question with some of my lease partner's coming in from the blinds..."You Make Meat?" and the answer said everything you needed to know about the guys day in the field .

That's slicker than a greased owls azz

Excuses are like azzholes - we all have um

If I'm hearing one person doing allot of shooting I always think or say - Their getting a better buy on bullets then I am.
