I wear a neck tie every once in a while when I'm hunting. It's always when I sneak a quick sit in during my lunch break though! Even had to make sure it's been tucked in to my outer layers a time or two to assure no blood got on it during field dressing responsibiities.
As far as your orginal question, I have no idea. Could it go back to traditions in England where "formal" hunts were a pasttime for the upper class?
If you look like a sheep, the wolves will eat you.
well im not sure but my father told me about a time long ago when people wouldnt by tags and just go hunt when they wished. possibly this is in those times and they where just going to kill dinner after work. to be honest i have no idea. im more a fan of camo and blaze orange
I was always told that those were the hunters travelling clothes to & from camp. The photos you always seen were those by the meat pole prior to departure and heading for home. I don't think they actually hunted in ties?

Well, guys used to wear "field scarfs" while killing Germans in WWI. I suppose though, that its related to fassion or what is expected. I remember when men used to wear a suit of sports coat and women wore white gloves when traveling by air. Ya', I'am that old.
It was the custom for all but lowly workmen laborers to wear ties for everything in the 1890's to about 1930 and then the fashion started to die out. It was still the custom at alot of colleges and universities into the 1960's. In a few families, even into the 1960's and 1970's, the men and boys were expected to wear ties to eat supper with the family. There are still some3 holdovers to that. My uncle told stories about an Italian immigrant he worked with on a roofing crew. The guy wore a white shirt and tie to work everyday, put coveralls over it regardless of the heat and worked in the heat on the roof all day, then took the coveralls off to go home. I remember gas station attendants wearing ties as part of their uniforms in the early 1960's. Of course then they pumped the gas, checked the oil and washed the windows with every purchase.
