I'm always in great shape by the end of the season. It's the beginning when I'm sucking wind. I guess the smartest thing to do is start doing some intense cardio of some kind a few months before the opener.

I excercise and walk pretty regularly.
Then when Georgia season comes in I have a weekend or two to get used to walking carrying a gun and vest.

It's hilly here so it helps.

Then I go to Texas where I walk alot but it's flat.

Then just about when I've got good legs under me I go to Montana.

If I went there first I'd have a problem.
The few weeks of hunting pryor help to get me into shape.

If I were going to go hunt higher elevations (like New Mexico) I might go train with the UFC guys for a month

Where I hunt in VT and ME it is mostly steep ridges! I start my training in Feb or March. I do 30 minutes on the treadmill every night til opening day!

You know I run up and down ridges all season long here in Northwest GA and it never has been too big of a problem for me.......but.........I turned 40 this year and I'm getting tired walking to the mailbox! I guess I need to hit the gym and be ready.

Hey flipper.

I do alot of cycling on my spin bike in the winter to build up my cardiovascular system. To work on my strength training, I'll use my total gym to build muscle.

Once the snows recede and the roads get better, I'll be on my bike. Yhis will hopefully get me some good miles to prepare me for fall turkey and deer season.

I prefer cycling to running due to an injury I recieved while running a few years ago. However, anything you can do to keep from getting an injury while hunting is a good thing.

You can't kill'em sittin' on the couch!
