I'd like to offer little something about hunting customs.
It is considered bad form and wrong to wish someone luck for his or her hunting. This is because luck has nothing to do with the result. Instead it is the forest maiden Annikki (literally 'Giver') that gives or refuses animals, as well as animal bosses called emuu. For this reason, wishing luck is considered disrespectful, and instead offerings are given to Annikki, and possibly some hunting magic performed.
Even today most hunters know to avoid wishing good luck to each other. Instead they might say things like "paskasia piippuja", meaning "shitty barrels". This of course refers to the idea that the hunter will need to fire his weapon, and thus make his barrel dirty... while catching prey.
Same goes for fishing. You would say "kireitä siimoja" ("tight lines") instead of "good luck". One doesn't want to anger the fish bosses by claiming they are not in charge.
Finally, one should never brag about the catch. Others might say "what a nice animal" or "wow, such a catch", but the hunter himself should remain humble. Again, being respectful towards the forest or waters, Annikki, and emuus is expected.
Today most hunters don't know why they behave in a certain way, and why they follow certain customs. But the code is there.
Karhu on jumalani ja kantavanhempani. Polveudun väestä, joka on oivaltanut paikkansa elävien ja kuolleiden keskellä, osana tätä maata ja vesiämme. Uskon syntysanojen pyhyyteen ja laulujemme perinteitä kantavaan voimaan. Uskon haltijoihin ja esivanhempiin, joita ei erota meistä aika vaan paikka.
Aivan kaikella on sielunsa, luontonsa ja väkensä. Kunkin väkeen voi vaikuttaa, ja kullakin väellä voi vaikuttaa. Myös yhteisöllämme on sielu, ja sen väki olkoon hyvä.
Hunting instinct is inside us as we walk the forests. No luck is needed when the outcome has been decided the need is necessary. The respect of what is given should be shown honor and love. I repeat above with certainty. Many have lost the code, and there will always be consequences, we can help balance. We must balance.
