This depends on a number of things:
1. The level of health, age and fitness of the client. Some professional hunters in Zimbabwe will observe the colour of the urine of the client to make sure that the he/she does not have dehydration problems.
2. The Zimbabwe summer season from September to February is very hot. Hunting doesn’t normally happen between 11am and 4pm.
3. The kind of animal that is being hunted. Lions are normally baited, a dead hippo is hung from a tree and the lion approaches with the hunter waiting nearby in a hideout. There will be lots of walking to find the right buffalo or elephant.
