Even in a hunter’s off-season, we still have many responsibilities to maintain.
As hunters, during our downtime, we tend to forget about preparing for the next season or keeping things in top shape, like our bodies, for our next adventure.
Whether you hunt in California or Missouri, all hunters have the basic expectations if we want to be successful hunters.
Keep in shape. As much as we all dread the gym and keeping our New Year’s resolution, keeping in shape is a big key point in hunting. Adrenaline keeps us going during the season but climbing that hill to the tree stand can accumulate sweat and odor, a hunter’s worst nightmare.
Another plus to keeping in shape is if a bear chases you, like one of my fears, you can get a lead and have bear jerky the next day!
