Hunting Season: End April – End May and August 10 – October 20.
Only slightly smaller than the Kodiak Bear, and bigger than the American Grizzly, this species is less aggressive than the Siberian Counterpart. That being said, there have been Bear attacks in recent years. The Russian government issues about 500 permits a year, which considering the population size is not excessive. The culling of big dominant males, who will restrict mothers and cubs from the best fishing and Berry grounds, is beneficial to the species as a whole. Although available and popular, we do not condone winter den shooting, as we feel it is too easy and does not give the bear his necessary chance. We hunt in late spring and summer when the Bears are at there most active and are more aware of the surrounding dangers. The shot is always taken from a good range and a safe spot, however a wounded Bear will have to be followed up and is a terrifying prospect, so please only take the hunt if you are confident of being able to hold your nerve on live game. If either Charles, Henry or Sophie accompany the hunt, and the Paying Guest does not want to track 500kg of enraged wounded muscle we will do it for you, because the Russian Guide can be reluctant especially if it involves thick cover. To hunt Bear you do not have to be in peak physical condition.
Just to reiterate, the Bears here are not shot indiscriminately and despite a recent World Wildlife Report are very common – We strive for conservation.
We can accommodate up to 3 hunters in each area, with extra room for non – hunters. We do not normally recommend more than 3 hunters on one of our hunting grounds, for risk of not all sportsmen being able to achieve their trophies.
Additional Trophies that be taken include:
Kamchatka Snow Sheep
Kamchatka Peninsular Moose
Kamchatka Brown Bear
