I met Dan Staton and Kenton Clairmont of TrainToHunt.com at the 2011 ATA show in Indy and was immediately impressed with their passion for fitness…and more specifically, how it applies to the hunter. Like most hunters, I fail to put in the time that is needed to stay fit for bowhunting in the backcountry. I often cringe at the thought of working out or going back to the gym. But when I think about the direct results fitness training can have on my bowhunting success…I am motivated. When I think about the fact that bear season is here once again and I realize that 65-pound packs on my back will soon be the norm as I pack into the backcountry of Idaho, I am moved to make a change. Some folks are motivated by the arrival of swimsuit season…I am motivated by the arrival of bear season, elk season, and any other season for critters I can chase with my bow.
Here’s a look at TrainToHunt.com in their own words…
