The last few years I have personally learned a lot about health and fitness. The hunting experiences that I have been in, made me realize it's importance. The majority of what I want, and like to hunt, are in places where the access to four wheelers can only take you so far. Packing in and dragging your butt up mountains isn't easy by itself. Then add your bow, packs, climber stand (if needed) and you are exhausted by the time you get to your hunt location. However, if you prepare for your hunt with exercise it can make all the difference. You will not be shaking and out of breath if you have to draw your bow or look down your sight all of a sudden.
