If you aren't already in good physical shape, it's too late to do anything about that. It's very rugged terrain. Be prepared to hike & glass, hike & glass, & then hike and glass some more. Stay plenty hydrated and refuel often. Would highly recommend a hydration bladder pack. One regret I had was not bringing some very light weight gloves. We did a ton of climbing up and down rock ledges and the rocks are all extremely sharp and jagged edged. 'My hands were cut up and bleeding after only a few hours. I would have never thought to bring some breathable light weight gloves but they will be a life saver. My hunt with MM was guided & was by far the most rugged and physically demanding hunt I have been on. They are there, you just have to find them, get to them and then shoot one. Be comfortable with 300+ yd shots. I have only hunted them once so I'll let someone else chyme in with more experience. I shot mine mid-day and they were tucked up against a 200ft cliff underneath a shaded rock ledge/cave, temps in the mid 90s. Once you go, you'll be hooked. Good luck to you.
