We all have an appetite to hunt and fish more! After a day of chasing Bulls, Bucks, Gobblers, and trout we never seem to think about eating. What a perfect diet plan.

The next bite, hard antler, or feather to come your way is always tasty. We just can’t get our fill! What a great addiction.

During the winter, we seem to gain weight and get lazy. When spring comes, the weight begins to drop, and life is great again. This feeling lasts until the next winter, then it is back to being a “Beefmaster”.

We try to ice fish or join a spa, but nothing takes the weight off like chasing Gobblers, fins, feathers, bucks, and bulls. Throw in a “trouting outing” or two and we turn back into a Mean, Lean, Outdoor Sporting Machines again! As we get older the transition is slower and harder but is more important than ever.

The key is to keep on trying. This transformation only occurs if you get your lazy butt out of the lazy chair and stay active. Yes, it is easier to say we are too old or too fat or too whatever. Don’t fall into that trap. Our appetites for a steady diet of outdoor exercise and fun will pay off big.

Instead of listening for the dinner bell, listen for other tasty sounds. The sound of an early morning “gobble”, the excitement of a bugling bull, a cackling pheasant, or the thrill of a bite from a fish…it just welcomes us to get outdoors.

When you go to heaven and St. Peter asks you what you wish you did more of, I am positive the answer will not be “work more”!

Move more, eat less, and hunt and fish to the max!
