Redstatehealth South Dakota Governor Mike Rounds spent part of his day Tuesday urging hunters to get into better shape. Rounds said they would feel better tramping through the woods if they had prepped beforehand.

He also recommended "healthful recipes using game birds" for after the shoot.

Phil Brinks, a former college football player, noted at the governor's "Healthy Hunter" event that hunting became more difficult for him after he hung up his cleats.

"When you're hunting in shape, you can walk farther, you can walk longer, you can walk through thick brush," Brinks told the Sioux Falls Argus Leader. "If you're winded, you're not mentally ready to shoot a bird."
