Hunters can expect to ride up to 5 hours a day and sometimes walk over 10 miles in rough terrain. The hiking isn’t on flat surface either; its off trail, side hilling, etc. Too many hunters under estimate how rigorous this hunt is and then regret not getting in better shape. Your ability to go where the animals are is the main factor that effects success. You have paid a lot of money to go on the hunt, so by all means please do your best to really get in shape. You don’t need to be an expert rider, as our stock is well trained and our guides know the stock well and are there to assist you. But, you do need to be prepared to spend time in the saddle.
Lion Hunters: note that we don’t use horses for these hunts. We may use a snowmobile to get around in some cases, but there is still the expectation to be hiking over uneven, snow covered terrain.
