My goal is to learn how to use an elk call effectively.  Never been elk hunting and this September will be the first trip DIY.  Picked up call first time 2 months ago and have been practicing everyday since. Slowly figuring out the basics but now pushing myself to learn more advanced calls.

It's been a few years since my last successful elk season.  I have been dedicated at the gym over the last few months.  I still have a ways to go before I feel like i will be in the shape I need for the mountains I'll be hunting.


I plan on heading out on the trails with my back loaded with weight to get in better shape for the mountain.  I have also purchased my first mouth reed after cutting even the smallest of mouth reeds to fit my mouth I have started practicing.  It's a good thing I have several more months to go.


Good luck to all this season.

Hello fellow elk hunters. I have been following Elk 101 for years but have never posted on a forum.
I hope you don't mind a woman bow hunter in her late sixties invading the sanctum.
My goal for the next couple if months us to get out and shed hunt and try to get back into elk shape.
I am recently widowed and have been only eating comfort foods. I had lost down to 115 for a sheep hunt in 2016 now 132. Eek plus I need to shoot  every day as I am no spring chicken.

My goal for this year is to drop my weight down from 185 to 175.  I really started working on this the beginning of March and as of this morning the scale was showing 184.

Im 57, 6 flat and as of this morning 225.8#.
My goal by 5/15 is 200# and 180 by 9/1.

Change in diet and getting much more exercise should do it.

Last year I went on a solo back pack archery hunt. After an unsuccessful season fitness was the number 1 thing I wanted to improve upon. I am 49 years old 5'11 and 214 lbs. I want to get below 200 by July

So, every year I go through this phase where I'm in really good shape going into the winter and then I slack off. So let's just say that I have developed a layer of warmth that I need to get rid of before hunting season lol. Right now I'm sitting at 196 lbs at 5'8" I'm a pretty solid guy from lifting weights often. So I'm going to set a goal of dropping to 180-185 just to lean up a bit. Good luck everyone! You can hit your goals!

Hunted Montana in 2014. Thought I was in shape after 4 months of p90x. Boy was I wrong. Goal this year is simple, be ready for real this time. Started watching what I eat. No more soda. 30 years old, 5'6". Was 158# in January. 145# right now. The fat is mostly gone, now to build muscle and endurance.
Side note, hunterjean....late 60's woman bowhunter? AWESOME!

Just saw the first page of this...I need a more measurable goal. So, we'll go with 2 things 
1.) Quit smoking FOR REAL THIS TIME!
2.) Build enough stamina to run 10 miles without stopping. (Already hit the 5 mile mark)

I can't win any prizes, but I can still post my goals.


1) Go from 188lbs to  180-182lbs
2) Run a mile under 6 minutes and 30 seconds.
3) Hike 6 miles under an hour with a 40lb pack. (I might be able to do this one already so if that's too easy let's make it 7 or 8)

My goal for this upcoming season is to get in better cardiovascular shape as thats always my weakest area. I currently lift weights 4-5 days a week and the goal is to get on schedule doing some cardiovascular exercise the other 2-3 days. Running, biking, or hiking with a loaded pack. Its tough for me to stay on schedule for the off days.

Id also like to hike 1 mile with an 60+ lb pack in under 15 minutes. Dont know where I stand yet as havent hiked with a loaded pack.

Cool idea for a contest, thanks!  I have 3 goals.
1) Run a half marathon this spring (scheduled in 3 weeks) and continue to run regularly after the race.
2) Get to 50 pull ups (at a pathetic 5 right now).
3) Eat less junk and fast food.
I won't be able to hunt elk this fall, but better fitness will help me in the whitetail woods and life in general.
