    oui, la tableau de chasse... 'hunting table' en francais!

  3. Welcome to WR forums, Hollywood.

    Are you thinking of "hunting scene"?

    Thanks :)

    Hmmm... "scene" doesn't seem to fit.
    I mean that collection of trophies you bring back from a hunt. So 'tableau' means more like 'board'. Maybe 'Hunting board' exists?
  5. We use the expression "the hunt bag" for the game which is caught.

    Some regions impose "bag limits" on hunters to prevent certain species being over-hunted.

    Thanks a lot, LRV.

    Would you also use this expression more figuratively, when it's not game you're after? E.g. the enemy planes taken down by a fighter pilot.

  7. Yes, Hollywood.

    Dictionary.com gives - Informal. To gain possession of; capture.

    I can imagine a fighter pilot saying, figuratively, "That's another one in the bag!" after shooting down an enemy aircraft.


    PS: I think you should perhaps have opened a new thread for a new question. No doubt a Mod will clarify this. :)

    Thanks again for all these enlightments, LRV :)

    Apologies if I posted this second question in the wrong place.

    on m'a donné comme traduction à tableau de chasse : " tally"... vous en pensez quoi?

    Tally, c'est le nombre de bêtes tués. 'Tableau de chasse' peut être employé comme image -- nombre de partenaires sexuels etc -- et donc il convient de préciser le contexte; s'il s'agit d'un tableau de chasse sexuel on pourrait utiliser "notches in his belt" à la place.

    How about ' killboard ' ?

    FYI this term is used in an online MMO to describe the website where a player (or a group of players rather) displays his 'kills' , meaning the other players he/she killed in the game, when, where, what with etc. A bit like a ' tableau de chasse ' in French don't you think ?
