If you're looking for something to motivate you as a hunter, look no further.
Every bowhunter out there has likely heard of Cam Hanes. Heck, most non-hunting fitness junkies probably know who he is. The guy is a freak.
At first glance, he looks like someone who's been training to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor at the same time. When you look closer, you see someone with deep admiration and respect for the planet and its wildlife, as well as an exceptional bowhunter.
Each influential hunter out there has his or her knack. Steven Rinella knows more about turning game meat into five-star table fare than anyone else in the business. Tim Wells can tell you how to hunt a warthog with a blowgun. Cam Hanes redefines hard work.
There are plenty of bowhunters out there who bring their own skills to the table, but there isn't one hunter on the planet who works as hard as Hanes.
In this video, he describes what drives him to hunt as hard as he does:
"Consistency" is a great word to describe his approach. Just about every hunter out there--even the most driven ones--has an off day.
Hanes doesn't have off days. He doesn't wake up some days and decide to hit the snooze button and sleep in. He goes full blast everyday.
He's one of the few people who can effectively make you look at your own routine search for ways to improve it.
So, the next time you hear your alarm clock, or the next time you're trying to push yourself one more mile, think about some of the things Hanes said in this video for motivation.
