Our Chukotka Moose hunting in Russia takes place in the central part of the Kamchatka Peninsula. Moose is an immense animal, usually larger than you would expect. Antler spreads vary considerably. The average Moose has a spread of 61 inches / 155 cm, although each year a few of our hunters take Moose of 70-72 inches / 178-183 cm in spread. The weight of such antlers can be up to 100 pounds / 55 kg.
