Make It Your Hunt

Random Hunter

During one trip to Colorado I was tucked back into some trees waiting for the elk to feed out into the open. As I waited this gentleman and his horse came passing by. He didn’t see me or I would have smiled and waived as he was enjoying his hunt just as I was.

You know what we need more of?  Participating in hunting in a way that fits your mold.  No one else’s.  If it makes you happy, is ethical, and legal…go for it.  Like big bucks?  Let the little ones walk.  Like meat in the freezer?  Shoot the first thing that comes by.  Prefer archery?  Get that stick and string out!  Come out once a year for the gun opener?  Have your orange ready and get after it.  We are all different and as hunters we should embrace that.  Continue Reading…

Beatiful Mornings

Is the anticipation of the sunrise and what it may bring filling your thoughts and dreams?

With each hunt comes some degree of anticipation.  Do you enjoy this feeling or simply wish it was go time, right now?  When does it hit you?  The night before?  Week before?  Month?  Continue Reading…

Review: Gerber Knives

November 8, 2020 — Leave a comment

Gerber has an extensive line of blades and tools for the outdoorsman, hunter, and fisher. After trialing several models I was very impressed.

For years I’ve carried a Gerber shovel and axe in the tool box on my truck “just in case”.  When I was training and hunting with my bird dog years ago I grabbed a set of Gerber game shears that I still use to this day.  I’ve always known about Gerber knives but until recently I really hadn’t had much exposure to them.  Continue Reading…


Trying to stay sane and fit at home? Maybe it’s time to finally put that garage gym together! (photo courtesy of

Over the last 10 years or so I’ve become accustomed to working out at home rather than a gym.  Prior to that I utilized the high school, college, or company gyms.  What changed was access to a gym and time limitations. Continue Reading…

Make a Difference

Making a positive difference can come in many forms. In this pic a fundraising shoot allows individuals and companies alike to support local charities.

As hunters and hopefully overall contributors to society, how many of us have taken it upon ourselves to make a positive difference?  It doesn’t matter how big or small, just something that in our minds left it better than it was?  I believe this is where many of us overlook just how powerful each of us can be.

Gift Guide

One of the greatest blessings that have been bestowed upon me are my three wonderful children.  They are currently paying me so far forward that I may never realize how much better of a man I am because of them.  But let’s face it, I’m human so I want some instant gratification.  What better way for them to thank me for being their dad than with some wicked awesome hunting and outdoor gifts.  It just so happens I have a few things in mind.  So kids, if you’re reading this, don’t be shy when it comes to letting your dear old dad know how much you appreciate him!!!

Make Sure Both You and March Go Out Like a Lion (photo courtesy of

I absolutely hope everyone is doing well as we transition from Winter into Spring.  I don’t intend to focus on the 800 lb gorilla in the room as there is already plenty going around on COVID-19.  What I do want to bring up is some of the unique opportunities we have right now and also some of my writing outside of that you may enjoy. Continue Reading…


WOW!  It’s been sooo long since I last wrote on  I’ll no longer make excuses and tell you I’ve just been busy and I plan to fire up weekly articles again.  Hunting Fit is not dead but I have redirected some of my efforts.  As you know there is a finite amount of time in each day and I’ve focused on a few other things (for now) and Hunting Fit had to take a back seat.  In my defense there is still a ton of content on the site to help keep you working towards your goals.

OK, So Maybe You’re Not Looking For Something This Unique…(photo courtesy of the

While it’s great to get into a routine with your workouts sometimes it’s good to mix it up a little to keep your body guessing on what muscles it will have to use next and also keep your brain interested as well.  I can only lift sandbags for so long in my basement before I just want to do something different.
