    Reminds me of the "punt" guns they used to stand upright in the bow of boats and blast them off at flocks of ducks and geese during the market hunting days.

    Now if my wife were to read this she would say that I could leave my gun at home and just take her along! I'll let her think that it's for situational awareness and common sense but in reality I know that I can out run her. What???? I like her chances against the bear. She could menopause that bruin to death!

    I grew up in Streator Illinois in the 1950&60s and heard this term most of my life from Slovacks, Polocks, Germans, and Hunkies, Italians, multi national community it was.

    My grandpa called me a honyock all the time when I was a kid. Followed by either I wasn’t dry behind the ears yet or my nuts hadn’t dropped yet🥴!
