    question for you midwesterners

    when you guys hunt in the EVENING , why do you refer to it as night .."last night we hunted here and saw 4 nice bucks, tonight we're going to try to get the big one"
    Its not night! lol its evening ....if it was night your poaching...

    sorry, it just really gets on my nerves

    Don't worry about it. If it bothers you that much, just stay in N.C and shoot your 120" bucks that you guys think are Booners.

    This is a easy one my friend,..

    You see when you work all day and in the afternoon, you have lunch,. you drive home in the evening.

    Well then you get all dressed up for the hunt for the night. See actually you really are hunting at night cause by the time you are done w/ the hunt its freak'in dark outside ,...

    Well unless you are a sissy girl afraid of the dark and come in during the evening ... Just Sayin ...

    Yes, but are you "hoping to get a good one" (as some say) when you are going home 'after dark'? Are you in fact still hunting?

    well you do have 30 minutes after sunset to hunt, which typically is the time where you see the most deer. I'm not sure what you call it when the sun goes down, but I would call it night. Must be us stupid mid-westerners. I know I've let arrows go and bullets fly in that last half hour for many years.

    Don't sweat the petty stuff, and don't pet the sweaty stuff.
    Night hunting qualifies under the latter.

    Get a brown paper bag, inhale and exhale into it. Then go hunt the night. You'll be ok.

    Probably the same reason some people from the "south" say, I'm gonna get me a Coke and come back with a grape soda. It is just how some regions and the folks that live there refer to things. The day I landed in ATL for basic I asked for a coke at the Micky D's and the guy asked me what flavor. I didn't know what to say, lol. That was my first time out of Northern Michigan and I just didn't get it at first.

    We shorten everything we say. It's much faster to say "I hunted last night" than "I hunted yesterday evening." If you drop letters or use shorter words you can tell a story in less time. We hardly ever use the letter G in words like huntin, fishin, runnin, cookin, etc. Try saying hunting, then say huntin and you'll be amazed at how much faster it comes out of your mouth.

    When we talk, our goal is to say as much as we can with minimal effort.

    Do you eat lunch or dinner? That would then make your evening meal supper. I lived in IL for 25 years and never really grasped that one.
    On the other hand living in So Cal where I teach high school for a living, they love to use the words spilt and smelt.

    I also say bubbler instead of water fountain, soda instead of pop, and I prefer to call them antlers and not HORNS.

    Thats just good old NE WI lingo right there

    Guess its the same as when people say they are hunting over a cut corn field. You pick corn, not cut it.
