What is Train To Hunt:
Workout and Hunt are the two things that Kenton has always done. He was a four sport high school athlete, a collegiate baseball player and even played a year in the minors. After returning to school for his Masters degree he began his career as a personal trainer, but it was his love for hunting and the outdoors that inspired him to start an online training site to help prepare hunters for the up and coming season. He is an avid bowhunter, videographer, editor, and fitness coach. He enjoys helping people, and spending time with his wife and kids in the outdoors of the Pacific Northwest.

His passion for the outdoors stems from his dad passing his love of the outdoors and passion for big game hunting down to he and my brother since they were old enough to walk. He is a firm believer that hard work and fitness are true equalizers in pursuing big game animals. He believes in true, do-it-yourself hunting. “Testing yourself against an animal, on his turf, will quickly make you realize he has the advantage in every way. By committing yourself to staying fit and setting goals, that advantage can be reduced and make you a better predator.” He is always looking for ways to test himself, pushing his body and mind to its limits. “Sitting on an alpine ridge anticipating daybreak is where I belong and where I will continue to find myself whenever life allows me the opportunity.”
Levi Day grew up in central Oregon with hunting and the outdoor lifestyle as a passion. As a high school, collegiate, and professional athlete, Levi learned at a young age the importance of physical fitness to improve performance. Levi now applies the same dedication to fitness that he once did in rodeo, to becoming the best predator he can be.
In the past, Levi was mainly a rifle hunter. He dedicated his time to becoming an accomplished long- range hunter; spending countless hours shooting, doing research, and fine tuning his equipment. During this time, he realized that every intricate part of his hunting “system “contributed to making him a more effective hunter. And that, not any one piece of equipment was more important than his physical and mental ability. “The mountains a very unforgiving,” says Levi. He continues, “Being physically fit will enable you to hunt deeper, hunt longer, and keep you hunting well past the years you thought you had.” Even though Levi is a passionate long-range hunter, he now spends the majority of his hunting season pounding the mountains with archery tackle. The one thing that has not changed is his unwavering commitment to being as physically and mentally prepared as possible.
Currently residing in Weiser, Idaho, with his wife Jennifer, Levi works as a middle school teacher. He spends the majority of his time in the outdoors, enjoying all of God’s creation with family and friends.
Matthew grew up in the Midwest with a .22 or 12 gauge in his hand. Most of his hunting was done in the strip timber of NW Missouri or the fence rows and railroad tracks of SE Nebraska. His entire childhood was split between competitive sports and his outdoor adventures. In the Midwest, Whitetail deer and turkey were the animals of choice and plentiful. Given the generous bag limits, he found himself wanting a bigger challenge. That is when he picked up bow hunting, and in 20 years he has never looked back to the gun. “Bow Hunting demands that you are always on top of your game and in peak physical condition. The smallest mistake either with your aim or your approach can make or break your entire season.”
He took this passion of bow hunting and moved west. Landing in Arizona, he found his true love. Elk hunting! From the bugle of a fired up bull to the color of the birch trees, Elk hunting has captured his soul. He trains and prepares 10 months a year for the 2 months of elk season.
Pairing his devotion to archery and passion with extreme physical fitness, he considers himself a new breed of hunter. A hunter who makes no excuses, but rather looks for ways to get results. Over trained and over prepared! Bring on September!!
Expanding his passion to include other like-minded individuals, he started a small site (www.noregretsoutdoors.com). This site was started to help others have a place to share their experiences, stories, videos and pictures without fear of judgment.
