Squats, burpees, situps, push press, etc. It is one of the fastest ways to build cardio in the shortest amount of time. Running and swimming are great too if you have the time and the fitness to do so.
Eating healthy while in the mountains is huge. You will burn a lot of calories and you need all the high quality food you can get. Don't be that guy who packs a lot of potato chips and has pop tarts for breakfast.
Hunting in the mountains at high altitude is tough, especially if you are coming from low elevation. Know your physical limits and hunt smart.
I lean more towards the high-intensity interval training size of things these days and agree in principle to the 2 posts I quoted + CO Shooters whose quote did not append when I paged ahead.
The 50+ year old Senior VP came in a few weeks ago talking about how he ran 9 miles, to which I told him he wasted his time and it did nothing for him.
If you want something else aside from sprinting, tabata and burpess, (all really great btw), go to you tube and search for "Thrusters". They are a front squat and push press combined. Lots of fun
