Get in shape!

Perhaps fall/winter hunts are way different from spring, but my cousin's lion hunt, he said was probably one of the most physical hunts he'd ever been on. Heard similar things from other lion hunters as well.

I hunt lions with hounds for a hobby. Best advise I can give is ENJOY it! Don't worry about killing a cat. If you get your sights set too high on that you will be disapointed. Take a camera, enjoy the scenery, and enjoy the experience, the dogs, the horses or mules if you use them etc. Lion hunting is a type of hunting that is more involved than about anything I know. You will have lots of time with not much happening, and it can get quite boring if you don't have the right frame of mind going into the hunt. Then all hell breaks loose, and you are under a tree looking at a cat... If all goes right.

Yes it can be a very physical hunt-what part of Northern AZ are you hunting, do you have a unit number? Using dogs?

the best advice is to give me the hunt you could get eaten!
j/j i went on one with hounds. there is nothing else like it adrenaline the whole time
as long as you dont have a problem with walking some rough terrain you will be fine
good luck and happy hunting

Beatiful country man, I haven't done any hunting up there, I tend to hunt east along the Mogollon Rim or more central in the desert, but have been up there quite a bit and done some fishing in that area. Congrats and good luck.
