Chukotka Moose is the largest antlered animal in the world.
Our Chukotka Moose hunting in Russia takes place mainly in the Koryak region and 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.
We have almost 100% of success in winter hunt and about 85% of success in fall for Chukotka moose.

DATES from/to Petropavlovsk
September 20 to October 20 – with horses

A horse back hunt is done in October. Spike camps are used to hunt particular area or animal. The rutting time is normally over by October and bulls start feeding actively. They are spotted at openings with reach willow vegetation. Leaves begin to fall off and it helps a lot for hunting. During November-December the snowmobiles are used for transportation in the area. The hunter and guide will travel great distance by snowmobile every day looking for a large moose bull. In the wintertime, they stay mainly in forests that have reduced snow level. Daylight is short in winter but animals are active in all day long and can be found nicely by tracking and spotting.
The camps are wooden cabins. Camps are equipped with portable cots, stoves, generating sets. Every camp has an interpreter and a cook. One of the cabins has a shower.
Very warm outfit, boots, gloves, goggles and mask for winter hunt.
