Default Deer hunting myths, good luck/bad luck?

Just curious about what everyone has been told over the years since your first hunts about hunting myths or things that are good luck or bad luck to do in deer/elk camp or during the season?

I dont know what brings good luck or bad. Most times I feel like I have no good luck at all!
It seems like every year someone I am with gets some outrageuosly great opportunity and they either dont shoot or they miss. I on the other hand I have to work REALLY hard for every little morsel of opportunity and even then it usually just barely goes my way!! So if anyone has any really good tricks for getting good luck please share, I could use a little!!

I have a great uncle that was pretty lucky. Or at least he made the group lucky. If the party wasn't seeing deer, this particular uncle would be asked to take a leak. As the many stories went within minutes a bunch of bucks would show up and get shot. The stories gets better every year.

I pee on my cousins truck tires. I think it's good luck, at least until he finds out.

Im going to divulge my secret.....
This is my secret hunting shirt. You can tell by the blood stains on it that it has led me to many successful hunts. However, I have found it in the garbagecan twice now so I am beginning to think that someone in the household is not a fan of it. It works I swear....

You make your own luck... I place little or no value at all in being "lucky". Luck to me is what happens when preparedness and opportunity collide...

Deer wisdom can be summed up in one word. Patients.

My grandpa told me once when I was very young, dumb, and inpatient that I would kill a lot more deer if I would quit wearin out my boots and put some wear and tear on the bottom of my britches. He was right. When I learned how to sit still I started killing a lot more deer.

+1! but ive kinda found once ive worn out my boots to get to a spot, then i need to wear out the seat of my pants.

i do believe in luck tho. otherwise none of those road hunters would kill big deer every year when they decide to roll out of bed at 10 a.m.

Medical businesses and doctors office success can be summed up in that same word too....
