Bowie knives: a big part of deer hunting heritage
We call things handed down from the past our heritage. Hunting knives, it seems to me, is now a big deer hunting heritage.
It could also, to a lesser degree, even be called a rite of passage for young hunters. "Not 'til you're old enough", we explain to the young people as they grow up. Then, some fall, we let them strap a sheathed knife to their belt and away we go.

Ten cows, ten sows and a hundred hens
Little brother (6'3", 240) and I often joke about going back to the old way of farming. That would be similar to what we grew up with near West Bend, Iowa, and Hadley, MN. We realize, of course, turning back to that long hour, hard labor work on small acreages "ain't gonna happen".
We fully know that 10 sows farrowed spring and fall, 10 cows milked by hand and 100 laying hens with hand-picked and washed eggs is only in our rearview mirror.
