    Fitness and bowhunting make the perfect marriage. More fitness means hunting harder and going further. To hunt at your best, you must own more stock in “General Physical Preparedness” (GPP).

Hunt like an athlete sounds a hell of a lot better than hunt like a couch potato. An athlete is fit for the mountains and conditioned to excel at the sport of hunting.
