Whether you are someone who trains all year, or the seasonal hunter, you should have some health-oriented strategies to keep your body safe and functional during hunting season. I coach hunters during season in many of the same ways I would approach any athlete as they transition into season play. I’ve identified three major components that stand out to best reduce risk of injury in the field. Injury prevention can come in many forms out in the outdoors, so it needs to be something you think about while out hunting. Afterall, if you get injured not only is your season done, but potentially many more depending on the seriousness. These three components are Recovery in the field and Joint Stability/Strength training when not in the field.
