Default Your Traditions?

Since we are all hunters...most of us have superstitions, curious as to what y'all do....personally...on opening day I have a ritual I go through. Also, for 10 years now I grow out a full beard....I wear the same clothes on opening day....same insulated underwear, even though my wife bought me new ones...same hunting jacket that is over 50 years old...was originally my fathers....and many more...anyways

what do you guys do?

Afterwardspeople here (traditionally)would go to their local pub and have a wee dram and celebrate the 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.

You will find the majority wear camo.

I can'r really think of anything else but im sure people have their own rituals.

No traditions for me. I just get out and hunt.

I always eat Italian food on the Friday night before the season starts. Saturday night is usually deer, elk or caribou...depends on what I have in the freezer.

Usually at least for the past 15 years, I get potatoes and sausage cooked the night before. We usually have a shot of schnapps and a beer and draw names for what blind you are going to hunt. Opening morning I get up start coffee and breakfast -eggs, potatoes, sausage and toast. Then we are out from dawn to dark.
