Impressive workout. I always do the one core exercise that all SEALS must master...the pull up...slow going up...chin over bar.....slow going down..I have a weight belt to add plates as needed to incrementally increase my strength.....

At home I do exercises like push ups, planks, elastic bands, and kettle balls. I have also built a pull up/chin up station. Since I live in a milder climate zone I ride my bike often on long rides for basic endurance and fun. That said i do go to the fitness center regularly.

Nice work on your hunt in Wyoming. You saw and heard elk. Experienced first hand the rigors of elk hunting. Idaho does have quite a few OTC tags.
Their website has a lot of information on each unit. Idaho is a non-preference point state. Good fortune on your future elk hunts.

I am 72. I am still chasing elk. I keep fit everyday by either lifting weights, cycling, swimming, hiking etc. 
I do not wait until July 1st to start.
The one exercise I never leave out are dead hang pull ups. 10 sets 5 reps each.
Pull ups strengthen my back for the rigors of a long day hunt. They also increase grip strength.
