I first posted this in another topic but it fits better here:

Seems some of you guys liked my colloquial name for deer (pine goats). I can’t take credit for that; it originated with Bruce Leopold, my Wildlife Ecology instructor at Mississippi State University. However, we have plenty more where that came from. In Mississippi, nothing is known by a common name. Here are a few more:

Squirrel: “Tree rats”. We have both red and grey squirrels but no one calls them that. When squirrel hunting in Mississippi you hunt either “cat squirrels” (grey) or “fox squirrels” (red). Our fox squirrels have a black phase in the Mississippi Delta and are known simply as swamp squirrels. But, all of 'em are "tree rats".

Rabbits: We hunt two subspecies here. Hill rabbits (cotton tail) and swampers (don’t even know the real name for these). Swampers are much larger than cottontails and will take a pack of beagles on a circuitous route similar to a deer, with the dogs going in and out of hearing distance. I once had a swamper to swim a creek twice then go back in to it. I finally found him with only his nose sticking out of the water in a log jam. The dogs were stumped. I called them in and let him go. No sense in killing something smarter than your average beagle.

Quail: "Birds". If you are a southern quail hunter you are simply known as a “bird hunter”. All the other things that fly are something else that doesn’t even deserve a name. If a man tells you he is going “bird hunting” and you have to ask what kind of bird, you must be a Yankee. All normal people KNOW what “bird hunting” is. While bird hunting, if ANY other bird is seen, it is a “dickey bird”. Used in a sentence such: “Dad blasted worthless hound is pointing “dickey birds”. Shoot him!”. Such worthless hound is usually a $5,000 high bred liver spotted pointer.

Raccoon: ‘Coon. Rarely used this way except in conjunction with another word. A dog used to tree ‘coons is a “coon-hound”. Invariably a large one is called a “boar-coon” and a small one is called a “sow-coon” (regardless of sex). You will go “a-coon-huntin” in the “coon-woods”. You will receive instant permission from small farmers who try to grow sweet corn because of his/her hatred of “thieving-coons”.

Turkey: “Field chickens”. Enough said.

Got to have some imagination there Geland. From now on, they will be known as "Southern brush-buck Impala".

How's that? Toothless

Weather has been pretty nice thus far when it gets cold I'll just have to get out the anti freeze. Very Happy

Sadly no, but it does taste good when left over night in a bowl of the black label before cooking.
