A trek through the woods provides quite a workout, and then there's the adrenaline rush of spotting the prey.
Doctors say it's that adrenaline rush that could lead to trouble. It can trigger a heart attack or even, potentially worse, a lethal heart rhythm disturbance.
Hunters should know their risk factors for heart disease before heading deep into the woods. Risk factors include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes.
Doctors say hunters should be prepared for an emergency by carrying a cell phone or CB radio, to never hunt alone and to know CPR.
Heart attacks are three times more likely to take a life than a gun shot.
