At the Dakota Territory Collector’s Classic Gun Show on Saturday, hunters had the opportunity to check out more than just rifles. They were able to get their health checked too.
The gun show and Sanford Health paired up to offer a free health-screening booth for customers at the show. At the booth, hunters had the opportunity to get their cholesterol checked as well as a check of their blood flow and circulation to help keep them safe in the field.
"A lot of hunters that we know don’t think that they need to do anything besides prepare their gun and get ammunition for the hunting season, but really they need to get their bodies in shape,” said Sarah Olson, coordinator at the Center for Health and Well-being at Sanford Heart Hospital
The booth also provided pamphlets with special exercises specifically for hunters.
