hung up
 adj.— «I couldn’t see the bird, but I knew he was “hung up” in turkey hunting vernacular, strutting his stuff with the logical expectation that the hen (me) would come to him. That’s how it usually works in nature, but most hens don’t carry a 12-gauge shotgun.» —“More misses than hits” by Ray Sasser Dallas Morning News (Texas) May 11, 2008.
