Exercises that may not require a ton of time but are effective? How to get started walking or jogging? Is jogging good for you?

I started a routine about 3 mos ago (indirect to deer hunting fitness) just because I wanted some new type of cardio that challenged me but didn't bore me. Stair climbing!
Real stairs not a machine.
I started first by walking up to get the groove, one step at a time, then skipping a step.
Now I bound up the steps (still walk down at a fast, controlled, safe pace). I'll do fast feet one step at a time, the next flight I do a skip step, the next flight i'll skip 2 steps (some days I can't run this one
), then I mix the pattern up, whatever it takes to keep the game alive (mentally).
I believe I do 700 steps now 3x a week. I still jog and ride my bike, but this has been a great addition. My quads are strong and feel great, and I have good 'wind' as well now.
Great thing is, it can be done almost anywhere.
As for deer hunting, I would think dragging a buck through the woods, over stumps, uphills, downed logs, etc.........for a 1/4 mile or longer that this would really benefit you (the hunter)
