Staying Fit Through the Season
by Matt Breton

Deer season is finally within reach in New England!  Sure, I’ve been archery hunting, but that is merely a tune-up for the real deal in my mind- tracking bucks on snow in the Big Woods.  Training is behind us and now is the time we want to make the most of what we have gained.  Most of us will be able to hunt the first few days without thinking about what we are doing to our bodies, but after that the grind can start to take its toll and wear us down.  What can we do to stay in the game for the entire season, mentally and physically?
