I wear the same dorky camo fanny pack during bow and muzzleloader seasons. i also wear my favorite browning sweatshirt the first day of general gun season .

I don't know if it counts as a ritual, but me and a few buddies of mine text each other when we see the first deer on every hunt.

Alot wear traditional hunting clothing (kilts, tweed jackets, hats with a pheasant feather ontop) but that is mostly outfitters that will do that for tourists coming for trophy hunts to make it more "traditional" like it was done here for thousands of years.

I just pictured myself out here in Canada on opening morning wearing a kilt, first off, i don't have the legs for it but more importantly, think I'd likely freeze something off!!!

Just couldn't resist RemingtonGirl, great post, it's very cool to hear how hunters in other parts of the world prepare for the hunt!!!

Rituals are a little silly IMO. I just get out there and hunt also.

we watch a old Jeff fox worthy hunting video shoot the breeze the nite before in the morning we all get up go to a hunters breakfast. Then we fight over who gets to pay the bill.

I don't know if it's really a ritual. But for the last few years I get up, fight for coffee with my dad (he always wins), I make another pot of coffee eat a package of brown sugar and cinnamon pop tarts. Drive to the gate where I open it while my dad stays in the cozy truck (whether he is drivin or not) By this time the pot of coffee usually catches up with me and I'm forced to start the morning litterally freezin my jewels off. And I do that every morning all season long.

Spend time around a campfire with good friends, telling old hunting stories and drinking a cold one or two......the first person who passes out, I smear deer poo on their face.

my Grandpa and I would always drink a shot after a successful hunt. Grandpa is gone now but I still do a shot in his memory.

I don't have any traditions but I am thinking starting one of just hunting on the day before Thanksgiving, day of, and day after because for the past 3 years I have killed my buck then. 2006-Thanksgiving morning 2007-Thanksgiving afternoon 2008- day before Thanksgiving...do you see a trend here?
