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 !
How to get there:
At the present moment the only way to get to Petropavlovsk is to fly via Moscow as the direct flights from Anchorage are not available any more. You will be met by our representative at the airport and assisted through the customs.
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:
For the most part a backpack hunt is traditional and only in one area horseback hunt for Kamchatka sheep is available (Palana region). Each hunter normally will have one guide and on 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 equipped with stoves and cots. There are 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 very good food and quality service.
