A hick is often thought to be a white-trash hillbilly by ignorant people who think they have the right to judge others. In reality hicks are a bit different than hillbillies or redneck but may very well be both. Hicks are very proud people, love their country and are ofter (but not always) religious. They are normally born and raised in rural country of any state although is is possible to convert to a hick from any other life-style if the person enjoys the hick life. Most hicks enjoy hobbies such as: hunting, fishing, mudding, nascar, football, taking care of animals, drinking socially,etc... It is said they are uneducated but this is simply a stereotype and many go to college. Hicks tend to be very hard working and many are farmers. Some believe in the good ol" days and are often old fashion which can result in racism. Many people mistake them as poor due to the fact that they save their money for most important priorities such as children or family, big trucks for good times, and making great memories. The things that have real value in life over money. The easiest was to find out if someone is a hick is to simply ask them, if not you will get a dirty look in return if they are the most common answer is "hell yeah!"
Hick1: "hey buddy, got the ford runnin, wana go muddin after the race?"
Hick2: "yeah man that'd be cool ill fire up the chevy incase I gota pull ya out when you get stuck"
Outsider: "hello, I over heard you two talking from across the bar, I was just wondering, are you hicks?"
Hicks: "Hell yeah!"

A person from a rural area, most often white. They are afraid to venture into "big cities" and refuse to accept anyone who lives or once lived in a city. They may have heated arguements about Ford vs. Chevy and are willing to die for their auto-maker of choice. They consider Nascar a sport, and if a foreign car wins hell may have just frozen over. They have no tolerance for change or advancement as they are often poorly educated and ignorant. Often times they refer to items as "she" or "them" and speak with an accent.
Hick: "Them Chevys are the greatest cars in the world."

Me: "Go fuck yourself... hick"

There are many variants of the hick species. I would like to describe the Northern Ontario phenotype. They are mostly male, but females are not uncommon.

Females can be recognized by their unhealthy obese stature, nicotine and beer stench, and raspy voice.

Northern Ontario hicks usually hold mindless jobs in paper mills, sawmills, mines, or collect disability benefits or welfare due to unhealthy lifestyles. More and more of them are becoming redundant because they are being replaced by things which are more automaton than they are: automation and robots.

They are mostly functionally illiterate, uneducated, backwards, uncultured, laggard, and unsophisticated.

Due to the fact they are functionally illiterate, they cannot read the instructions on condom wrappers or birth control pills resulting in the unfortunate dissemination of endless generations of hicks.

Hicks have a propensity to boast about the acquisition of mindless polluting toys such as ATVs, snow machines, and large gas sucking pick up trucks.

Their social status is manifested by the mountains of garbage they put on the curb every Tuesday. Recycling is considered an anti-social act. Mass energy consumption and waste is also a sign of hick behaviour. Running air conditioners at full capacity with the windows open in the summer and heating the house to a sweltering temperature in the winter are good examples of hick-ness.

Hicks can be also seen at the beer store on payday loading their pick up trucks with cases of beer before going on beer binging expeditions in the woods where they will leave tell tale signs of their presence such as empty Tim Horton's (a large coffee chain) coffee cups, trash, and empty beer bottles on the side of the road and in the forest spoiling the nature
they claim to be an inseparable part of their heritage.

The Northern Ontario hick can be recognized by the characteristic "ee" at the end of each incoherent sentence that it utters. Familiar sayings include "gonna drink some beer dayr ee" or "dat gas is ixpensiv dayr ee" My favourite is "sheez runnun real good dayr ee". It refers to the clouds of black smoke emanating from the tailpipes of their trucks.

A sure fire method of ridding hicks of the environment is to make them uncomfortable by trying to engage them in intelligent conversation, by introducing them to new terms such as anthropogenic climate change, science,art,epistemology, dialectics, and tautology, or by telling them that there is no such thing as heaven when they die. You tell them that they will go to a library or a university instead.
illiterate, incoherent, ignorant, wasteful, hick

Another term for a cowboy or a person that has any association to horses. They are usually picked out of a crowd by their cowboy hats, baseball caps and wranglers.
If you went to Willits High School you would definitely know a lot of hicks.
