The average trophy size is 34-37 inches with occasional 40 inch ram taken. These Sheep have the heaviest bases of all Snow Sheep of Asia. We do not promise you to see very many rams, but we strive to make your hunt successful. In 2014 our German hunter Dieter Pfannenstein took a New World record ram – am amazing specimen of 46 inches!

There is no need to fly all over the world through Moscow anymore. The direct flight from Anchorage
to Petropavlovsk – Kamchatsky was reopened and the trips to Kamchatka for the major North American hunters became easier, this is once a week flight.
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:
For the most part a backpack hunt is traditional and only in one area horseback hunt for Kamchatka Sheep is available (Palana region). Backpack and lots of hard hunting on foot can be expected. Be in a 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 equipped with stoves and cots. There is one separate large tent for dining and one for shower. The camps are located in mountain valleys at 2,500-3,000 feet (800-1000 m). Every camp has a cook who can offer you home style meals. You will find a good food and a quality service.
