After field dressing a buck, his scrotum gets hung from a nearby tree. Failing to do this will result in no buck the next year.
My brotherstree steps is where I hang them!

Where to start?

I had a lucky sweatshirt I wore and got a lot of deer when wearing it. Told my daughter it was lucky and she got several deer while wearing it.

I had an unlucky pair of binoculars once. Didn't see anything while having them with me. I forgot them in the truck once and got a deer. Then I forgot them a few days later and got another.Left themin the truck on purpose and got one in rifle season. Forgot them in spring turkey and got one. Needless to say, I put 2 and 2 together and gave them away. I even warned the guy they were bad luck.

I don't look at the shell I put in the chamber.

I never brag that I'll get a deer before the season. That's bad luck. When one of my hunting partners starts bragging, around other hunters, that we are getting deer tomorrow, I start down playing our chances. Its funny seeing the look on their face when I do this. I can't tell them why I do it either, that's bad luck too.

I number the vanes on my arrows.On certain days, certain arrows are lucky.

All dollar bills in my wallet HAVE to be facing the same way.

There are a few others but this is enough to speak of, right now. I may jinx myself by just talking about it

I have a couple:

1. I have a lucky pair of pants, they are a $30 pair of Carharts ( 3 for 3 so far). I also have a $150 Scent Lok pair but I never see anything in them.

2. I eat the same breakfast and OJ before I go out.

3. If I forget my field dressing gloves I never get a deer.

4. I never talk about seeing a deer the night before. If I talk about deer it is always qualifies with an if or maybe.

Rub the lucky coconut. Yes a coconut. I brought it home from the Florida Keys because whenever it was in the boat, we caught a lot of fish.

See coconut in use:

That Kalik in the picture makes me miss the Bahamas. Great choice of beer!

Hey guys. I dont have any crazy rituals but a few things I do.
I pray before I leave and when I am in the stand for a good hunt.
I dont wash my clothes in scent cover or wash in it. I just use regular unscented soaps. Never see a deer when I wash in the stuff.
I have one bullet I load in the chamber and don't chamber a different one till Its been fired.
