2004 sportsman 500, high RPMs

I have a 2004.5 sportsman 500 h.o., this past weekend I took it on the trails and ride for about 6 straight hours with only a couple of 5 min breaks, as the day progressed I noticed that my idle RPMs were running high and also seemed like they were really high for the speed I was goin. I was just wondering if this was normal or if there is something wrong
