You might think duck hunting is all about sitting around in a field, a dozen donuts at the ready, while your decoys do the work. Every once in a while, stop, shoot, then sit back and relax all over again.

Now there’s another flock coming, so you’re running out to grab those downed birds and get back in your blind. If you’re out of shape and your heart rate gets too elevated, you’re not going to be able to make an accurate, safe, clean shot on the next one.”
