    There is a lot of talk about getting your dog in shape for the season but check out this great article by Bob about getting yourself in shape for the upcoming hunting season:

    Great article

    Unfortunately, using me and conditioning in the same sentence makes about as much sense as using military intelligence and government efficiency together.

    Ya No. If cold beer is good for you and drinking it is a work out then I'm in good shape. I work out on a stair master every morning but I don't think it does me any good. I do have a shape ROUND.

    Well I do walk 2 miles 4 days a week but it's usually to counter act the strawberry cheesecake.  Does thinking about working out count?  If so then heck yeah I'm ready.

    Reading the replies here makes me feel and sound like a "health nut". I walk about 2-3 miles Daily, with Tony. Every evening at 9:00 I go in and do a exercise regiment that lasts and 20-30 minutes. That keeps my back, arms and legs in shape. If I take a few days of rest. I feel so lousy in general, I'm back in working out to get that good feeling back again.....Bob

    Yep Bob your the health nut in the bunch. I like the saying my old man told me poor people have poor ways but he died at 72. I walk alot training and hunting a few miles a day but it ain't enough to keep all the weight off. I guess if I stopped eating 1lb beef steaks and potatoes every night and stopped drinking beer I'd lose weight but it ain't going to happen.

    Several years ago, I weighed 214, I'm 5'10 inches. I had heart pains and a constant back ache. I went to the Doc.and he did some tests and Type II Diabetes showed up. My diabetic Nurse, gave me a 20 carbohydrates a day diet. In about 18 months I lost 47 pounds and stopped 167, I have been around there for about 5 years now. But no heart pain, no back aches. My blood sugar is near normal now and I feel good. Knowing what the alternative is, is all the incentive I need to do my exercises and stay on my diet......Bob

    I'm actually having to face the same reality. I need to lose about 50 pounds to get my health back under control. I want to be around to walk my daughter down the aisle.

    i run 10 miles or more a day for cross country and train in brazillian jiu-jitsu and i box 3 or more days a week for 3 hours a day sometimes more. i also workout twice a day (weights, plyometrics, body weight excercises) so id say i am in gud shape for the season.

    my dog runs continuously for about an hour to 2 hours a day so i would say she is in pretty gud shape. and thats in the woods quartering back and forth through thick brush. she usually comes home sleeps for an hour or 3 and then chases doves around in the backyard all day

    Good for you Llew, keep up those Sports Related Training workouts and remember those stretches and such. They work well all life long. Most of my daily workout is a series of stretches and just a few muscle maintainers.......Bob

    thats all you really need bob, the stretching and maintaining your peak physical fitness level.

    i typically set monthly or bi weekly fitness goals so i can gauge my progess. like for example a few weeks ago a goal of mine was to do 100 pull ups continuously. which i met. one week it was 50 deadlifts with my weight, the goals help but i only try to accomplish them on my "off days" where i am not working out as hard. i usually have 2 off days a week where i only run or only lift, or only do plyometrics, plus the fitness goals.

    Just shy of 50 My excercise and preparation includes biking a couple times a week

    spring Turkey season (up and down some pretty serious columbia gorge terrain)

    camping in the summer with plenty of hiking

    Then the real workout starts in sept. chasing Elk all over the east cascades usually for 8 to ten hours a day for a couple of weeks then a little deer and grouse hunting to kill some time till end of sept

    Then its break time for me and workout time for my dogs until season opens

    not a very diciplined regiment but it works for me
