Are there any spells (that dont need oils or herbs, maybe just symbols if possible)to attract animals, a tracking spell, and maybe something to make steps louder in case something try to sneak up on you? I'm going hunting, and those would help out alot since i do the more traditional way and stalk whatever im after instead of just waiting for something to pass like most people.
The best way to achieve both of these things would be the practice of meditation. It will help you tune out other sounds to help you be wary of specific ones. It also helps to attract animals when you finally learn to emit positive/loving energy at will(after you learn how this energy "feels" of course often after a good amount of time of feeling your own energy(basic energy "manipulation")) .. this will take time, and serious practice, but it will pay off eventually. You may be surprised at how much of the basics lead to the "advanced", ( and if not, more power to you, ;) )
Meditation on 'the flow' of the nature in the area you are going to hunt in. And moving with that.
Alreddy 'cheating' by using a rifle I would say.
Give the hunted atleast a fair chanse-ish:)
And give thanks to the animal you gett.
For theyr sacrifice.
If any magick to be used. I would use a form of shamanic related shapeshifting where one uses a predator of some kind as wolf. And hunt simulare to how they would go about things.
