The most rewarding hunts often require your best fitness levels

By Greg Ray, Outdoor Solutions & Kevin Guillen, Wilderness Athlete

Outdoor Solutions’ Greg Ray:
“You can’t out train a bad diet,” are wise words from my friend Kevin Guillen from Wilderness Athlete, and I have found these words to be very true. Training alone without controlling your food intake will severely undercut achieving the full potential of your body. When we go afield hunting, we need to be in top form, and that means eating a healthy diet to complement a fitness routine.

Some use them to keep themselves fueled while they are fishing, climbing, snowboarding, mountain biking or training for an endurance race.. Eric Smith from Reno, Nevada started using Wilderness Athlete products because he wanted to lose a lot of weight so he would be able to do outdoor activities like hunt with his son. “In May 2011, I was very ill and was hospitalized for a week or so.

Idaho Elk Trip 2010: Reflections

I am not sure what would shut the elk vocalizing after 2 ½ days, could it have been the forestry guys? Maybe!  Could it have been wolves? How about a mountain lion? We saw both tracks while hunting. But, I talked to a few other guys that hunt the same zone about 20 miles apart from where we were and they experienced the same thing on the same days.

It was a good hunt, not only to challenge myself, test new gear and but in taking a greenhorn on this type of adventure.
