    Yeah I've seen the photos of you. It would appear you have ten of everything when it comes to hunting gear

    I have a lucky projectile. They don't kill better than any other I have used but when I have them I see more game????
    That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    I find the more effort I put in the more lucky I am.

    got a pair of OLD jockey Y fronts that I shot many animals while wearing...the Mrs burnt them.....
    early H&f hat again shot many animals wearing it....now been replaced
    my big black bitch Meg is pretty darn lucky for me....yet we still luck out at times.
    taking my daughter with me hunting is always a great idea,she has seen me balls up some easy shots but still end up with animal
    oh my all time most sucessful good luck charm is RUMPY,we always seem to get something and even if we dont I really enjoy time out on the hill with a fellow bush hobbit.

    Dont really have any superstitions. But I can plan to be doing something else, like go out for a beer, BBQ etc and just get a feeling that its perfect conditions for a quick look somewhere and I just drop everything and go.
    Always at least see an animal.
    It is a bonus being able to hunt 5 mins drive from home.
    Not so much when youre expected to be somewhere else and youre lugging meat out of a handy spot with no cell reception to apologize.

    Lucky tui brand bright orange singlet. Got 3 of them now and only seem to shoot deer while I'm wearing o e. The bonus is I get to throw it on the deer when I'm carrying it and it doesn't look like a deer anymore

    Mate of mine used to lick his thumb and then wipe that thumb across his foresight for luck when heading into the bush.

    His rifle was equipped with a scope, go figure...
