I had to replace my old hat this year. I bought it almost 20 years ago for a bow hunting trip. Holes now expose my head and the tattered camo boonie hat has been retired. I haven’t found a good replacement hat yet though. Not one that is good for cool weather and hustling on sunny days. And not one that is lucky.
I know hunters with a lucky knife, lucky ear rings, lucky ivories rubbing around in their pockets and others with lucky rabbits feet.
I need a new lucky thing.
So now I’m waiting for it to arrive. I’m not sure what makes something lucky though. What if I buy a new thing and my next hunt goes foul? Or if I carry a new thing and my hunt goes well but it has nothing to do with my new lucky thing and it isn’t really lucky at all?
I’ve got a rifle that has never let me down but I don’t carry it when I bow hunt. Boots wear out too quickly and it would be hard to convince myself that something I’ve had around for a while can suddenly replace my old hat that I know is lucky.
I think that for now I’ll just carry my ripped up old hat in my pocket until something new and lucky shows up.
What’s your lucky thing?
