Superstitions you follow...

We've all heard of a ton of superstitions about hunting, shooting, etc. What are some of the one's you follow, whether you believe in them or not.

I'll begin with one I heard last year --when gutting a deer, always throw the heart away from the gut pile for future hunting luck.

Wishing I was at camp!

I had a lucky flannel shirt a few years back that had more rips than a fart convention...never should have gotten rid of it! Anybody know where I can get a new one? LOL

Bigfoot saw me but nobody believes him!

I always kiss the 1st bullet that slides into the .270 chamber....unfortunately, that superstition didn't work out for me this past Sat.

I live to hunt....and hunt to live!

After gutting a deer, I get up, walk around it counter clockwise three times, whistle the Marine Corps Hymm, look for a dorkfish, and then say "Poor Stogey" outloud.

Re: Superstitions you follow...

I have a few. Never go prepared. I usually don't have a knife. I never carry a dragon rope well bc there are no dragons in the woods. I don't clean my knife thats used for gutting either.

I always have to have a Mr. Goodbar in my pack. My grandma used to get them for us for the first day, and since she is no longer with us I always make sure I have one!

Same flannel shirt from my ninth grade girlfriend. The tail has been chopped a few times and the collar is just threads.

Never use an arrow from the end of the quiver-always a middle one.

I used to do that as well... seems like my luck has improved since I stopped though.

We always carry a lucky candy bar with us. Not all of them are lucky though... If you eat it then kill a deer/turkey/bear, you shouldn't have eaten it... that was the lucky one!

Re: Superstitions you follow...

Have always used the same orange hat for birdhunting. Had it on when i got my first grouse, pheasant, and woodcock. Also i number my arrows when i get them to tune for hunting but i only ever use the odd numbered arrows. Never have all the same broadheads in my quiver 1 out of the 4 has to be different, never had any luck when they were all the same. Usually its 3 slick tricks and a carbon express f15.

Re: Superstitions you follow...

I kiss the bullet I load into the chamber as well. Been doing since my first year hunting.
