Hunt Preparation

Your Success is Our Success

Your degree of success in your sheep hunt directly correlates with your degree of physical and mental preparation.

Make sure you develop a plan for getting in “Sheep Shape” including:

– A strong cardio workout at least 3 times a week

– Back strength training (squats, leg press)

– Various hikes with your hiking boots & weighted backpack

– Hiking with your walking poles to get used to using them
