bilby commented on the word cut 'n shoot
"Cut and Shoot (Cut 'n Shoot, Cut N Shoot) is six miles east of Conroe and forty miles north of Houston in eastern Montgomery County. It was apparently named after a 1912 community confrontation that almost led to violence. According to the different versions of the story, the dispute was either over the design of a new steeple for the town's only church, the issue of who should be allowed to preach there, or conflicting land claims among church members. A small boy at the scene reportedly declared, 'I'm going to cut around the corner and shoot through the bushes in a minute!' The boy's phrase apparently remained in residents' minds and was eventually adopted as the town's name."
