In 2014 the hunting for the Chukotka Snow sheep was open. This is the rarest and most remote variety of Snow sheep possible to hunt in Russia. The area we are operating is the best available and very productive. The hunt on Chukotka Snow Sheep can be successfully combined with Brown Bear on trophy fee only.
How to get there:
At the present moment the most reliable way to get to Petropavlovsk is to fly directly from Anchorage with a direct weekly flight. You will be met by our representative at the airport and assisted through the customs. We do everything possible to expedite the custom procedure. Then we will take you to the hotel for an overnight. Next day you will take a regular flight to Tilichiki and then transferred to the hunting camp.
The season is from August 1 to September 20. Optimal hunting period is from August 1 to September 10.
Snow sheep hunt can be combined nicely with Kamchatka Bear from August 20.
Snow sheep hunting:
Traditional stalking hunt. Each hunter will have one guide and one assistant. Backpack and lots of hard hunting on foot can be expected. Be in good shape. A temporary tented camp is set up with the specific goal of hunting a particular animal or area.
The camps are modern windproof tents. They are usually equipped with stoves and cots. There is one separate large tent for dining and one for shower in most camps. The camps are located in mountain valleys at 2,500-3,000 feet. Every camp has a cook. You will find very good Russian style food and quality service. Spike camps are small tents; packed lunch is provided. Be prepared for rather ascetic conditions.
