Sharing Camp with Good Friends Shouldn’t Be Overlooked When Assessing the Success of Your Hunt.

For over 20 years I was a pretty solitary hunter.  I’d occasionally venture out with a friend every now and then but primarily it was just me.  As you enter your hunting seasons this Fall I hope you all come home with meat for the freezer but don’t forget about one of the other great benefits of hunting.   Continue Reading…

The Ascent Series in Subalpine Works Great for a Variety of Destinations and Game.  Photo Taken in Michigan.

It’s hot in Texas…but I didn’t let that stop me from hunting this summer.  Being blessed to have year round opportunities to chase game I didn’t want to miss any chances I might get.  With that, I needed something that I could wear to keep me concealed but also not cause me to melt into a puddle of sweaty mess.  Talking with a Sitka representative he recommended giving the Ascent Series a shot.   Continue Reading…

The C.1 is the Latest Offering from Maven.

If you’re going to hunt out West then you’d best plan on facing the fact that you need to have good set of binoculars.  I’m sure there on plenty of arguments for and against packing in a spotting scope but I can’t think of anytime I’ve heard someone question the need for binos.  When offered a chance to check out the latest optical offering from the team at Maven I didn’t want to pass it up.

This May Be the Literal Definition of a Farmer’s Carry but It Will Benefit Your Hunting Fitness as Well (photo courtesy of beastlifestyle.com).

So you’ve been following or maybe this is your first trip to HuntingFit.com but you’re intimidated by the thought of starting a workout program.  I’ve got a relatively simple exercise you can do at home or the gym to set your fitness goals in motion.  Couple the Farmer’s Carry with some additional cardio work (walking, hiking, running, etc) and you’ll be amazed at how much more you can tackle this fall.

What a Beautiful Scene.  With a Little Effort it Could be You.

As I scroll through my social media feeds I am seeing a ton of post’s from individuals who are already wishing their deer or elk season was upon them.  While big game seasons in the fall are my favorite there are way too many opportunities out there the other 9-10 months of the year to be wishing them away.  If you’re not capitalizing on all the year round adventures we’ve been blessed with then you should reconsider your strategy.

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!

The Subalpine Pattern is the Latest from the Team at Sitka.

In the world of technical hunting clothing Sitka has clearly made a name for themselves as arguably the premier manufacturer.  They have a wide range of offerings for all types of sportsmen AND women ranging from whitetail hunters, waterfowl hunters, to mountain hunters and anything in between.  With such an extensive offering and the fact that they strive for continuous improvement it’s easy to see why I’m a fan.  This past year at the ATA show when I met the team from Sitka it was truly fascinating to see and understand the thought and efforts that go into their work.  With all this being said, when I got the chance to try out several pieces from their Subalpine collection I was ecstatic!
