Summertime is in full swing right now so I wanted to take a minute to hit on a few things before it’s too late. Just because there may not be any seasons open doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be working diligently right now on your goals. It really hit home for me last week when talking to a friend and he said he would be hunting antelope in 6 weeks. Not too long ago if a guy had to mail order any gear it may not even make it to him in time!
Take a Kid
If you’re a long time reader of HuntingFit.com then you this will come as no surprise however, if this is your first time here then you’ll figure out pretty quick that involving our youth in the outdoors is very important to me. It should also be important to you. There is no better time than the summer to get kids exposure to some of our favorite wild places. You can camp, hike, fish, have a bonfire, you name it. Whatever it is keep it fun and maybe you’ll just have them hooked for life.
As I had already mentioned some hunting seasons will be upon us very quickly. If you’ve already started preparing physically for your hunts then now is the time to pick it up a notch. If you haven’t started don’t just lay down and give up. You have time. Set your goals and focus your efforts. You’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish. Personally, my workouts were getting stagnant so I was looking for a way to mix them up to push myself to a new level. Luckily for me my wife has decided to partner with me during some workouts so that has changed things up and allowed both of us to push ourselves a little more than we maybe would have. I also had a friend present me with a variety of exercises and workouts to execute with sand bags of varying weights. So far I’ve really enjoyed it and can tell that changing my routine has improved my fitness efforts.
