    Every miss in our camp is a twelve pack. Then at the end of the season everyone pays up. We have a bbq and everyone enjoys the beer and the storys. Good times had by all:smile2:

    This sounds corny but I always thank the deer for being there before I field dress it. I love the idea of a 12 pack or shooting your hat for a miss, or maybe let everyone else shoot your hat if you miss. If they cant hit a deer how they gonna hit a hat?

    I always say a little prayer thanking the good Lord for the opportunity to have the right to hunt his creatures!! :wink:
