You will have a chance to see bears, caribou and lots other Newfoundland wildlife. This is not a very physical hunt. However it helps to be able to hike a couple hundred yards/meters to get to your calling location or to close the distance on the final shot. Your average shot will consist of 75/100 yards/meters.
