Hunting Fishing to Get Healthy

By: Mark Gittelman

The great outdoors offers a huge number of opportunities for getting out there and reclaiming your one-on-one enjoyment with nature though activities such as hunting fishing and hiking or camping.

If it's been a while since you've indulged in any sort of strenuous outdoor activity, then consider getting a full physical first and tell your doctor that you're wanting to pursue activities such as hunting fishing or hiking. This will ensure that you are physically able to enjoy these activities as well as catching any potential health problems that could be aggravated by a sudden increase in physical activity. If you get the green light from your doctor, get your fishing hunting gear together and get ready to enjoy the great outdoors.

Along with getting your physical health checked, you need to make sure to remember the safety basics for hunting fishing outdoor recreational activities. First of all, if you're going to indulge in any of these pastimes, tell at least one other person where you are going and leave a map of the route you plan to take to your favorite fishing hole, place to hunt whitetail deer or hiking trail. It's important because if you encounter a difficult situation and you are unable to call for help, then others will know the routes to take to find you.

For your hunting expedition, make sure that you are well-versed in the basics of gun safety. As well, it's imperative to wear an orange reflective vest during deer hunting season so that you will not be mistaken for big game. Using a turkey call is a good way to let other hunters know you're in the area too. Because the deer herd actually considers the call of a turkey to be calming, this won't give away your location or cause the deer to run. Just remember that when engaging in hunting, being visible to other hunters will avoid a tragic accident.

Reconnecting with your family is a great aspect of enjoying outdoor recreational activities. Whether it's hunting fishing or taking the family for a hike through a "not often traveled" trail, it's great to get away from the stresses of life and enjoy the simple pleasures that don't involve cell phones, laptop computers or text messages, at least for a weekend.
