This is a repeat of a thread I started on the old forum. Thought it might be worth bringing it up again.
How much do you think a hunter's level of physical fitness impacts their safety and success in the field? And secondly, what kinds of things do you do, if any, to physically prepare yourselves for hunting season.
Personally, I think it is a huge factor and widely overlooked. There is so little written or said about it. Maybe we can change that.
ORIGINAL: Cut N Run
I used to run 3-5 miles every day and then do 275-300 push-ups all before work. April 21st 2006 I got hit by a drunk driver which limited what I can physically do. At 47 years old,I had to give up hockey (because I couldn't stand another head or spine injury). I still walk daily and do exercises with thera-bands (giant rubber bands).The push-ups are out because my shoulder took most of the impact and needs further surgery...it didn't stop me from hunting turkeys though!
I can't get around as well as I used to. Staying in shape makes it easier for me to do what I can. If I had not been as fit as I was, coming back might have been more difficult than it was.
Hey olesmokey12, I am no expert like JPH...
