Russia, because of its enormous size - it is nearly 2 1/2 times larger than all of the USA - has an incredibly rich and varied fauna and flora. In fact here you can find the most diverse range of animals in the whole of the northern hemisphere. For the experienced mountain hunter, Russia offers the beautiful Sayan mountains and Gorno Altai, which houses species such as the Siberian ibex and maral stags. Hunting takes place in the remote mountain regions, where you will be living in a small hunting cabin. Russia is widely known for its large unspoiled territories. The climate varies between Scandinavian and arctic, depending on how far to the north you travel. Especially Kamchatka holds a special place in the heart of many hunters, as the nature seems almost untouched, because it was closed off by the Soviet military until 1990. The peninsula is also quite unique as the landscape is littered with dwarf trees and houses no less than 160 volcanos, 28 of which are still considered active.
The moose may be hunted in several parts of Russia, but moose hunting is particurlarly popular on the Kamchatka peninsula, where the average trophy is 155 cm (61 in), but particular large moose have yielded trophys as large as 170-180 cm (69 inches). The average trophies weight is around 30 kg (66 lbs) but can be as large as 55 kg (121 lbs). It is also not unusual to meet some of the large brown bears who inhabit the area, during the hunt. Moose hunting season ranges from September to November.
You can also hunt for European Moose in areas a few hundred kilometers east of Moscow. These hunts can be combined with Brown Bear and Wild Boar
Are you ready for an exciting bear hunt? Russia is home to world’s largest population of brown bears. We offer bear hunting in several parts of Russia, but to most hunters, the bears living on the Kamchatka peninsula are the most desired. These bears belong to their own subspecies of brown bear, native only to Kamchatka. These bears grow large - very large. An upright standing brown bear easily becomes more than 3 meters tall (9.4 ft), and can weigh up to 700 kg (1543 pounds) when nearing autumn. Although the bears are not among the most aggressive of the species, this is not a hunt for the faint-hearted. Large caliber munitions are needed to kill the bears, and the shooting distance is usually ranging between 100 and 200 meters (328 - 656 ft.). Brown bear hunting season lies in April/May and August/September
At a glance, the Siberian roe deer is quite similar to the European roe deer. However the body is 50% larger and the average trophy size for a Siberian deer ranges from 700-900 grams (1.8 to 2.4 pounds) and it is not unusual for a Siberian deer trophy to weigh more than 1000 grams (2.6 pounds). It is therefore not surprising, that Russia has become a popular destination for trophy hunters. Deer hunting season starts in the end of August and ends in the middle of October.
Kamchatka Snowsheep & Koryak Snowsheep
These two highly attractive species of sheep are found on the Kamchatka Peninsula.
It is a tough and challenging hunt in some of the most beautiful landscapes that Russia can offer.
