Hunting Rituals

17 posts in this topic

I was talking to a construction supervisor from Michigan the other day and the subject turned to hunting like allways and he asked me what we do around here when we take our frist deer I told him I don't do anything exept make them dress thier first deer,and he told me in michigan they drink some of the blood true or not I don't know. I also told him I eat the heart that night when I get back home and he thought I was sick.

This got me thinking what are some of your/hunting groups rituals after harvesting an animal or after your first one.

try to get a few more. grill up some straps later in the evening in the shop, have some beers, and talk smart! Usually, that little fork your dad passed on in the morning starts sounding like a wall hanger by the end of the night!

Around home we get them dressed, hung, and skinned. Mom makes wild rice soup and we also fry the hearts up. Not much for livers, we use them to trap leeches. Hunt and fish hard, enjoy the outdoors with family and friends.

No real traditions for taking that first animal in my group. We used to boil up the heart for a field lunch, but I haven't done that lately after all the CWD scare about eating organs. I've had some old timers tell me about 'blooding' the new guy by pushing him in the gut pile while he clean's his first deer, but wouldn't want it done to me and wouldn't do it to somone else. About the only hunting hazing I've ever had done to me was going on the proverbial 'snipe hunt' as a youngster.

Vister, I think thats his bow with an arrow on the rest...

Sniper, did you tell him ya cook the heart before eating it?? grin I think drinking uncooked blood is a bit more disgusting than eating cooked heart. After all, its just another muscle, and its extrememly lean and tasty.

Been years since I had that... We used to boil it up with some egg noodles, dang that was good.

At my in-laws deer camp at the end of the day we do a little chant and do a shot of corn whiskey for everyone who shot a buck that day. -Can get interesting if we get 4-5 bucks in a day.
