One of the Latest Offerings From Danner,  Gila, Caters to the Mobile Hunter.

At the 2017 ATA show I stopped by the Danner Boots display to see what they had in the works.  One of the boots I was drawn to was the Gila.  I don’t know if it was because the boot simply looked solid, appeared as a lightweight hiking boot allowing for excellent mobility, or the recent addition of the Sitka Subalpine camo pattern.  Either way, I wanted a pair.  Unfortunately they weren’t available at the time but finally this past fall I was able to get my hands on a pair and boy was I glad I did!

Have You Given HIIT a Try Recently (photo courtesy of fitelicious.com)?


In an attempt to come up with a catchy title I wanted make sure I clarified what HIIT is.  The acronym stands for high intensity interval training, which means you do an exercise at a very high intensity level for a time period followed by a lower intensity activity (active resting) for a period of time then repeat.  It’s a topic that’s been talked about here on huntingfit.com but I wanted to take another look at it and see how it can benefit you.   Continue Reading…
