    Only nicknames I use are when hunting with people who aren’t the best at id’ing at distances. You know the guys, a flock of birds 800 yards out and the instinctively call ducks coming.

    I look and say only 3 things:
    ____birds...vast majority of all birds
    Tiltazzes: flocks of shorebirds
    Or
    Yep.

    What’s better is when they correctly ID ducks and you say “nope, ____birds”... then they stop paying attention to them and you get to shoot at em first. Real handy for the guys that like to jump up 5 seconds too soon before the shot is called.

    That would work except I don’t hunt with anybody that I don’t let shoot first. I’m goofy that way. Vast majority of folks I take only hunt a couple times a season and they suck.
    I let them know what good of shots they are after the dog brings my birds back.

    So basically you take n00bs so you can shoot their limits. Nice strategy.
