Default What do y'all do to rookies?

Hey yall just hoping you can give me some heads up. This will be my first time hunting and I KNOW my buddy and his family (the ones im going with) are a bunch of rednecks (in a good way) and are going to play pranks on me since its my first time to the lease. I know that you dont snipe hunt with a burlap bag in a field so thats not going to work.

So my question is this: What tricks do yall paly or have you had played on your fellow hunters when theyre the new guy?
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

I've used Raisins along deer tracks in the snow to lure Rookies away from me.
Then at the end of the day I let them see me eating the raisins off the snow telling them "Aw man it wasn't even fresh droppings"

Thats good Bruce...

I dont do anything to em.. Help then get in a tree and make sure they got their gun.. Then Im moving a considerable ways away from them so I dont get shot. I also make sure they got a way of communicating if they need something..

Back when I first started gun hunting, we used an old truck camper with a 5 gallon bucket that was used for a holding tank. Low and behold the "rookie" had to empty the bucket!! Looking back on it, it was worth it!!!

new guys does all the chores at camp
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

I try to put first time hunters in my best spots hoping they see some deer and want to come back. And if they kill one they always get the 1st deer initiation, head in the gut bucket or if I can't get it in there they definately get blood all over their face. And a good picture after its all done, its good stuff man.
