Jonas in Alaska.. If i booked this hunt I would book the Sheep and Grizzly combo hunt.. I have heard his area has a lot of bears in his area and he is the one Alaska outfitter I would Consider bowhunting with..
My other Option would be NWT/Yukon.. If I booked a hunt there I would most likely do a Sheep/Caribou hunt.. Also if I did this hunt I would probably need to book it out another year for the extra expense.. I know there are a couple of outfitters to look into for this hunt..
Any advice for me??
Either of those would be fabulous hunts.
I was lucky enough to get to go to the NWT several years ago for sheep and caribou. It was an incredible hunt in amazing country.
Pick the hunt that feels right for you. Get and stay in good shape.
Some great advice on the thread “bowhunting thinhorns”
I would expect a remote sheep-grizz combo in the Central Brooks would be an incredible experience. It sounds like lots of rams in Jonas area. I've always dreamed of NWT hunts. Each is a little different and likely has it's own advantages/disadvantages.
As I’m sure you have found already there are very few sheep outfits that LIKE to take bowhunters. Interview as many previous Bowhunters as you can wherever you narrow down your search to. From what I know you have made a good pic so far in Alaska.
Arctic Red River, Gana River, Canol (was Ram Head), McKenzie Mt, Lancasters (two areas, forget the names) and Raven's Throat all have excellent reputations. I understand they are also booked out 2-3 years in advance for bowhunters in most cases, as they limit the number of bowhunters they take each year. Don't wait too long to book, even if you are looking at '22.
Advice to go to the Sheep Show is spot on, as you can meet most of the McKenzie outfitters there...but that is next Jan 23-25, 2020 in Reno, NV (I assume Reno as the website didn't list the location.)
Kurt x2. Spot on!
