Hunting Rituals

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
