You should try to read through the Georgia hunting forum once in a while. I've never seen another place like it. It's very sad the lack of education available in some parts of the country OR the complete lack of interest in the education that is provided.

Another one for me is someone starts a story and stops part way though and says more later. Oh I have a great story about stick bow hunting I'll tell you later.

Either tell it or don't kind of childish by this time I don't care.

It really only takes a minute to proofread what your posting, before hitting the Add Reply button.

As far as typos go, QUITE in place of QUIET drives me nuts.

There was a long continuing thread recently that opened with a huge post with no paragraph breaks. Extremely difficult to wade through.

I politely suggested to the OP to continue the story using paragraphs for easier reading. I was quickly scolded for the tip. Soon my post was pulled.

Most of my pet peeves have been addressed already. One that really irks me is right after an accidental double post the author comes right back with "Sorry for the double post". Just let it go!

Oh yeah, almost forgot "deer horns". They're ANTLERS!

I wonder about this one. Some words take on a life of their own. We even have a place called “Elk Horn Slough” near Sacramento. I’ve heard taxidermists and other people who know that deer and elk have antlers call them horns. I think it’s kind of like the word “animals” which is commonly used to mean wild and domestic mammals other than humans, even though the person saying or writing that probably knows that we are animals too (as are fish and bugs). Or Marines calling naval vessels “boats” rather than “ships” just to get under Sailors’ skins. Or Sailors calling rifles “guns” just to get under Marines’ skins. In other words, a lot of these things, like “horns,” are probably said somewhat tongue in cheek or just to add a little spice to the language
