Exercise, try to increase your endurance as much as possible, we will be in altitudes of over 6,000 ft and the air is thinner there so take this into consideration when getting ready for the hunt.
Clothing, be prepared for a variety of weather, good comfortable clothing is a must, wool or fleece is a good choice for the outer layer. Thermal underwear is another good choice. Quiet rainwear that can be put in a day packed. Layering clothing helps in the continual changing temperature.
