April update. Got a bike and am working on getting rides in for conditioning my knees. Proving tough with a torn pcl. Migraines are there but maybe the heart pounding in my head will get me used to it so when it happens because a bull comes into shooting range Ill be used to it. Lol. Only a couple weeks until I find out if I drew my limited draw archery tag. Heres hoping. Still waiting on snow to melt on the bow course so just shooting around the house for now. Keep on working toward those goals. Season will be here before we know it !

Hope you feel better!

April check in.  Started MTNTactical's "Frank Church" training plan which has been great (second program I've done from Rob, he's got really good stuff).  It's designed for outdoor professionals and a great winter/spring base training program for hunters.


Back recovery had been doing really well until I attended a conference last weekend and sat in basic chairs for 5 hours which really fired up some sciatic pain that I hadn't really experienced for well over a month.  That's really slowed me down this week but still getting in a little cardio while trying to rest up the back so I can get back to the full program ASAP.  It's been pretty frustrating taking a step backwards.


When trying to lose body fat I usually target a 1,000 calorie deficit per day which is roughly 2lbs of fat per week.  That's very hard to do with just light cardio and still enjoy reasonably satisfying meals, so hoping the back/sciatica clears up again soon so I can hit it harder again.

Last weekend, I did a 12k (7.3 mi.) 2000 ft.+ vertical, solo, overnight with 30 lb. pack. . Saw lots of Elk, snow, some steep terrain and new territory near home. Now my knees hurt. Working upper body while letting my knees heel.  :train: Looking at loosing another 5 lbs and continuing with 60lb pack on short 2 mile hikes.
When my knees feel better.

It's been 16 days and I'm already going down in my weight and my grouping is tightening at 70 yards. I'm not at my target goal but I'm making good progress to get there. I've got about 12 lbs to lose and a bunch of shooting to do. Another update next month!

So after 15 full days I am at 67.1 miles. This puts me a little behind on my goal of walking 600 miles by July 15.

Well after drawing my New Mexico tags yesterday I can tell you I will be kicking up my workouts 10x!


I've been doing great at running some distance every day.


I've been focusing on a lot of cardio and high rep/low weight workouts. I'll continue this for the next two months, cut down, pass my PT test, and then add some strength training.


This will be the best September ever!

Update: the workouts have been continuing, with a minor speed bump last week due to getting a nasty bug. I'm feeling good though and I'm down 4lbs from when I started to 238lbs. Still a ways to go, but at least there's some progress!

Still working at my goals. I am down 4 pounds with 6 to go. I am doing my pushups every other day to allow some time for healing between workouts. My workouts next week will also consist of sprints and belly crawls with Dan trying to bag our turkeys.

April update.  Goal was to become a well rounded caller and brand new to elk calling.  At this point my locate bugles and cow mews are coming together, and now working on my chuckle but no consistency yet.  The inhale on chuckle is holding me up.  Also been working on cow and calf mews to try to sound like multiple elk. This week starting to work on a bark chuckle like The Bugler does.  Next month will attach video of my calling.
Good luck

Great contest! My goal is to lose 10 lbs or more. Right now I broke the 200 mark and am 202. I would like to get down to 190 by July 15th.


April Update- I have been going to the gym more consistently and with this warmer weather have been doing more hikes. Also am playing basketball twice a week. I feel like I am in better shape but haven't lost any weight yet.

I would like to be down to 240 by July and 225 by the archery elk opener in my home state of Montana.  I am currently at 263 down from 286 at New Years. I have been working out four to five times a week for 40 minutes and have been eating more vegetables and less sugars and carbs.

April Update- Down to 255! I have been working out 5-6 days a week and have been good about eating less carbs and eating more vegetables. I seem to notice the most gains when I eat right.

My goal is to drop 10 lbs.  Im at 213 now.  Also build up my endurance.  8 miles on the bike today and I want to do that at least 5 times a week.

April update--   Had a setback for the last couple weeks due to my back.  Even with that I'm down to 209 lbs but the bike and workouts have been on hold.   Injection last week so fingers are crossed I can get back at it by the end of the week.
