The most quintessential reason we hunt is for sustenance.  There are many other reasons and benefits but really the only reason you’re able to sit there and read this article is someone years and years and even a few more years ago killed something and ate it.  The good news is whether we kill something or not, we’re likely not to starve to death.  However inside many of us there is an urge to provide protein for ourselves, families, and friends.  In the spirit of just that you probably want it to taste good.  I actually do a ton of cooking around my house and most of it consists of wild game and veggies so I’m always on the lookout for something to give my culinary skills a boost.  Through my research along with some trial and error I found Miley Brands Grill Rubs and Spices.

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…

Don’t Sit Back and Wait (photo courtesy of pinterest.com).

The new year is upon us and we should all be retooling (our bodies and gear) for the upcoming fall.   While I plan to bring you  updates on the latest and greatest gear, my focus today is more on your body.  If you’re like me then you busted your butt all Winter, Spring, and Summer hitting the fall seasons firing on all cylinders.  If you were hunting out West then you were likely done in Oct, maybe early November.  If you are more in the Midwest or East perhaps your season got extended through December.  Either way, season is over, now what?

The Cover from The Journal of the Texas Trophy Hunters with My Latest Article.


Great news for Hunting Fit!  My latest magazine article just came out in the Jan/Feb copy of the The Journal of the Texas Trophy Hunters.  This is the official magazine of The Texas Trophy Hunters Association which I have been a member of for several years now.  It details Continue Reading…


Now may seem like an odd time for a gear review review on a bug repellent as I just finished up a trail run in 6 inches of snow and subzero windchill, but really now is a great time to be thinking about your Spring adventures.   Look at it this way, you likely just received some gift cards or had to take back the pink bunny suit so you’ve got a little expendable income right now.  Think forward a few months to when you’re turkey hunting, camping, or doing a little Spring fishing and how awful the mosquitoes will be.  At that point it will be too late and you’ll have to just grin and bear it. Take advantage of some great technology and make your upcoming outdoors activities just a little more enjoyable.  Thermacell has been expanding their lineup of mosquito repellers continuously since hitting the market several years ago.  One of their most recent offerings is the MR450 which I had the pleasure of testing out this past summer.   Continue Reading…

With hunting seasons freshly behind some of you and several months already under your belt for those who still have some time left, where did your fitness fall short?  On the flip side of that, what went very well for you?  I ask these questions because there is no better time than immediately following an event (or season) to evaluate your performance.
