Welcome to another episode of the Southern Game and Tackle Podcast. This week Rick recaps an amazing couple of weekends that were all things outdoors. Most recently, the Project Savior Outdoor crew Mike, Justin and Rick took a trip to Wisconsin, thanks to an invite from Chris Hamm, President of HHA Sports. Chris also has a passion for giving back to the veteran community, and his organization HHA USA was hosting an event for almost 200 veterans and supporters, with multiple shooting events, a concert and fundraiser. Chris put on an amazing weekend and welcomed PSO with open arms, forging friendships for years to come.
While in Wisconsin, Rick and Mike also got a chance to check out the Beastmode Archery Endurance Challenge that was taking place alongside the HHA events. This was a tough course with lots of elevation and physical challenges, really pushing the boys from the flatwoods of Florida! The Beastmode events are set up to replicate real life scenarios in the backcountry and the toughness it demands sparked Rick to bring the topic to the studio.
If you know Rick, he's definitely got some meathead in him, with working out and hunting being his two biggest passions. He's also trying to become a runner, and with his first half marathon right around the corner, the idea of how being physically fit can help you become a better outdoorsman, not just physically but mentally as well, has never been more at the forefront for him. With turkey season here in the south behind us, thoughts will soon be shifting back to preparation for the fall hunting seasons, and there's no better way to start that prep than by making sure you're in the best shape possible. While you don't have to be Mr. Olympia to be a good hunter, taking care of yourself physically can help you get more out of each hunt and potentially put you in better position to be successful. Rick talks about the correlation of hunting and fitness, how it's helped him, and ways to push yourself as you prepare for the fall.
