Like most guys Covid threw my hunting plans for a loop. Im thankful for mine and my families health and being able to be going on any hunt at all. In 2016 I booked my dream hunt, Alaskan Brown bear. My outfitter was going to be Jonah stewart. It was set for this year and when the bear seasons got cancelled, Jonah was good enough to allow me to come out on a sheep hunt instead. I cant thank him enough for working with me, as I know this virus has impacted many people in many different ways from health to finance.

3 months ago I found out that I would be doing this hunt, I have trained as best as I could. Cutting 30lbs and exercising 5 days a week. I leave NY in a little over 2 weeks. I purchased a grizzly tag as well.

We will be hunting in the Brooks Range. I have been shooting and tweeking my setup and I really like the way my bow is shooting. This is going to be a challenge but I fell up to it. I will plan on updating this and taking you guys along as best as I can while I have service.

At this point I would worry more about your feet, legs, and lungs than your shooting. Good luck!

Yeah it can’t come soon enough. I’m backing off my hiking and strenuous excercise a bit. I don’t want to risk getting hurt so close to my hunt. I’ll take tons of pictures and post up a write up when I get back. Thanks Nick. I’m overnighting in Fairbanks, if you are around let’s grab dinner.

Good luck and we’re looking forward to your story! You’re doing the right thing. Backing off intense exercise a week or two out is a good idea since it allows your body to be fully refreshed when you start the hunt.

Good luck Leo!!!

In 2012, Jonah and I were 51 yards from a great ram in the Brooks on final approach with arrow nocked......then a gust of wind changed everything!! Haha!

Jonah is first class all the way! You will have a great adventure!

Good luck! I've hunted with Jonah three times. First class operation and the new lodge makes it that much better.
