The north of Kamchatka Peninsula offers some exceptional hunting for Koryak snow sheep. This huge area still has excellent ram population. Koryak Snow Sheep average size is 34-35 inches with occasional 40-inch ram taken. Sheep are found at 4,000–5,000 feet. In September sheep hunting can be combined with Kamchatka Brown Bear.
How to get there:
At the present moment the most reliable way to get to Petropavlovsk is to fly directly from Anchorage with a weekly flight (July/August). You will be met by our representative at the airport and assisted through the customs. Then we will transfer to the hunting camp the same or next day depending on the area you hunt.
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.
