From bear to sheep
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.
Good luck to you, Leo! Look forward to following along on your trek.
Leo, Take a lot of photos.....you'll treasure them for the rest of your hunting days!!
Good luck! Looking forward to it.
At this point I would worry more about your feet, legs, and lungs than your shooting. Good luck!
Good luck !! Looking forward to following this one!!
Looking forward to your story!
Good luck Leo! You are going with one of the best in the business! Have fun and take pictures of everything!
Get ready for an incredible hunt! You’re hunting with one of the best. If you get to Fairbanks and need anything before you head north, let me know.
Good luck, will be looking forward to your reports
Wow good deal. Jonah will get you in on some rams!!
Excellent. Can't wait to read about it when you get back. Good luck!
Should be a hoot! Have fun, take lots of pics, and share with shleps like me!
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.
Best of luck! Can't wait to hear the story of your adventure.
Good luck and can't wait to hear about it. You already got my respect just taking on the sheep hunt challenge. Be safe out there.
Good luck and look forward to hearing about the hunt!!
Awesome! Good luck and have fun!
Good luck! Looking forward to the photos and story!
Good luck to all of the sheep hunters out this weekend!
Good luck and safe travels
Leo, good luck! Hope you get a nice one!! Enjoy the effort and sweat! Kurt
Awesome! Will be following along. Good luck!
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.
Have a great trip......good luck!!
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.
Best of luck and God bless! Looking forward to the stories
Awesome! Have fun and I look forward to seeing pics.
