Train to Hunt & RevoMT

Train to Hunt

We have under 90 days until general deer/elk season!

How are your quads feeling about hiking in the woods and hauling that deer out? We want to help you have a good hunting season by helping you get ready for it.

Train to succeed. Training for the hunt should reflect the hunt. That’s why Venery is partnering with RevoMT to launch a 6 week Hunt Prep Class and Program.

RevoMT Hunt Prep Course

6 WEEKS of two classes per week
HANDS-ON COACHING and programming
CUSTOMIZED to prepare you to perform in the back country
AEROBIC DEVELOPMENT to be done on the mountain or in the gym to ensure you stay alert and capable no matter the conditions

We have a class/program ready to launch to prepare for hunt season specifically, improving overall fitness and work capacity so that the Montana hunter can go further, maintain high energy levels, and stay resilient and composed in any situation. The design is two strength classes a week, and a written aerobic work program (mostly rucking/hiking with other stuff done in our classes) to do additional days of the week. Because smoke season is approaching, we are going to open up the option to hunt prep attendees to pop into some of our conditioning classes during the week for aerobic work in case the smoke gets bad in the following weeks.

Classes run August 13th-September 24th – Limited space available to ensure quality coaching. Mention Venery when you contact Mike@RevoMT.com to sign up and join us as we Become Stronger and Go Further!

Sighting In

Getting to know your gun is the most  important skill for new hunters. Knowing your gun means taking responsibility for your equipment and being familiar with your range as a shooter. Knowing your gun means safe hunting and ethical kill shots.

I recently got a new scope for my 7mm08. It was a birthday present from my dad for my 40th birthday. Taking up hunting changes your gift requests. I spent a couple of hours at the range sighting it in and getting comfortable behind it.

To start, I took out the bolt and looked down the bore. I moved the gun around until I could see the target through the barrel. Then I shot. Then I adjusted the scope for elevation (up/down) and windage (left/right). Then I shot again.

In the picture below, you can see me slowly walk it in to the bulls-eye. My first 2 shots were in the 6 ring.  You can use math to get to the center more quickly, but I’ve always been an experiential learner…

Next step, take it to the 200 yard range and zero it in for antelope hunting!
