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!

2832-0100-CONDOR LCX MARRON

When it comes to footwear I’m not one to cut any corners.  Even as a child my dad would always tell me you’ve got to take care of your feet.  That advise has proven accurate and something I have not taken lightly.  Think about it this way, every single step you take while in the field your feet have to balance on whatever terrain you’re on and transmit the force from your body to the ground and back up again.  If you’re not on your feet then you’re not going to get much hunting done.  With all that being said, I had the pleasure of being introduced to a company I had never heard of before, Le Chameau.  While I believe their bread and butter for years has been their outstanding rubber boots they also offer a leather hunting boot.  I had the opportunity to try out the Condor LCX this year leading up to and during the hunting season.

Even Though You See Beauty Like This in Elk Country I Had Some Reservations Prior to My Recent Elk Hunt.

I wrote an article a week or so ago pondering some of my thoughts about an upcoming elk hunt.  Now that I’ve actually went on that hunt I thought I would follow up with where I’m at today looking back at the comments I made.

At the time I was feeling the necessity to kill an elk on the trip to make it worthwhile.  That need was to fulfill several gaps including the financial investment I had in the trip as well as the time away from my family.  Continue Reading…
