A walk in the woods or a leisurely hike takes on a whole new meaning when you're in big game or predator country. While it may seem stuffy or even wussified, hiring a professional guide can take an otherwise ordinary visit and really maximize your experience. "I think guides are great, and going out into a new environment with them is a great jump-off point," Anderson says. "They understand the habitat, can find animal tracks, understand where they are during certain times of the day or what they're eating certain times of the year. You'll learn something and they'll keep you safe."
