    buck wild?

    "Ya'll know me. I'm the first to get buck wild." What does it mean to get" buck wild"? Is "buck" an adverb here? Thank you very much.

    Re: buck wild?

    "Buck-wild" (it should properly be hyphenated) means to temporarily go extremely crazy or uncontrollably emotional. (The idiom refers to the aggressive and unpredictable behavior of a male deer, or a buck, during the mating season.) "Buck-wild" as a whole is an adjective.
