Jake Shea


Jake Shea and his 198 inch Idaho buck

Age: 36

Hometown: Boise, Idaho

Favorite Hunting Method: Heavy glassing/archery spot and stalk

Jake was blessed to be raised in Idaho where there is so much opportunity to venture into the outdoors. He was introduced to hunting by family members before he was legally able to hunt. At the age of 12, Jake started hunting waterfowl along the Snake River Valley and rifle hunting mule deer in the beautiful Owyhee Mountains.  At the age of fourteen a neighbor family introduced Jake to the sport of archery hunting.  They took him along during archery deer and elk season.  Jake took a liking to the challenge of archery hunting.  It taught so much more about the animals that he pursued and patience by spending so much time waiting for the opportunity of a shot.

Jake believes in the fulfillment of the hunt whether it’s successful or not as long as you have a good time and get into the outdoors.  That is what really matters.  But for Jake there isn’t much that tops standing over a big old muley or bull elk after a successful shot.

Hunting has introduced Jake to several great people and has provided the opportunity to spend time on outings with family and friends.  In 2001, Jake was introduced to the Mule Deer foundation (MDF) thanks to Steve Alderman. Jake is a solid member and contributes as much as he can to the foundation to support conservation and preservation of wildlife.

Jake looks forward to introducing his three daughters into hunting as they grow older.  Jake’s very lovely and understanding wife holds down the fort during most of his hunting adventures but loves the outdoors as well.

Jake believes hunting is our heritage and is a brotherhood of friends and family that should live forever.  So,  his advice is to take a younger or older person hunting as often as possible and get involved with your local wildlife or conservation groups today.  Make a difference by helping to preserve what is ours today and insure it is there for future generations.
