Do you celebrate a kill with a toast?

Recommended Posts

Last few years, whenever my dad, brother, and I go hunting, we make sure to have little tiny bottle of Scotch in our packs in order to toast if one of us gets an elk, deer, bear, wolf, moose, or whatever else is being hunted.

Any other hunters have this tradition?

This is us toasting my dad getting his once per lifetime Idaho moose.

Due to the rarity of such an event, we brought decent Scotch...

Usually I just pee on their dead body, oh wait, you're talking about hunting aren't you.  Sorry, wrong topic.

When we go bluewater hunting, I bring beer soy sauce and limes. If we do well(ie wahoo/tuna) we have beer and sushi on the ride in.

Never land hunted enough to develop a ritual or tradition.

Other than saying, “Nice shot.”, we really never did anything any more extravagant than stuffing the bird in the vest and start walking again.

Every year.  I toast the start of the season and the end...and if something comes home the spirit of the event and the animal that brought us the joy of the hunt and the dinners to come.

I said hunting, not pheasant shooting...

Right, guns and booze go so well together

Are you serious?  C'mon, really?

How can you find any fault in having a shot of booze after the hunting is over?

Do you not have any alcohol in your house?  Guns and booze don't mix, you know...  :uglylol::slap:

Yeah, we go through the same ritual when duck shooting.

Only instead of walking, we just continue to float.

And when the game wardens are in the area, we make sure we have our shooting licenses handy.

You know, because we’re shooting.......

How do you equate bagging a moose, a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence in Idaho, with shooting a pheasant in Iowa, which has a daily bag limit of 3 birds?

Please, what thought process brought you to the conclusion that they were even close to the same thing?

I have been pheasant hunting in Iowa.  It was fun, and they are delicious.  I had a beer after the day was over with my fellow hunters.  That's what rational and responsible people do.

How you could even extrapolate toasting a moose kill to taking a shot after every bird is beyond rational thinking.

You specifically said, “....whatever else is being hunted.”

Why, now, do you feel the need to define which is “better”?
