For the blood on the face. We do it,and its more of a rite of passage for a hunters first kill.nothing crazy usually just a strip on forehead and each cheek. Also for a missed deer you will loose your shirt tail.reason is to make you not want to miss again,usually done to new young hunters and ment in all good spirit.I always say a prayer once I get settled down in my stand asking the Lord to keep me safe and to allow me to take a deer on this hunt if its his will.Also being part native american and a christian I do say a prayer of thanks to GOD for allowing me to take one of his awsome creatures and thanks to brother deer for giving his life to feed me and my familiy,and that his death is not in vain.Thats just me,each there own
