Hunting for the Kamchatka snow sheep and the Kamchatka brown bear
Hunting from two camps. In order to change the camp, it is necessary to make a foot crossing of 8-10 km. You don't have to go back to the previous camp. The left things, when changing the camp, will be taken by helicopter during the removal of hunters from the lands.
The duration of the hunting tour is 14 days of which 10 days of hunting and fishing. It is possible to reduce the tour to 10 or 7 days. And also to fly out of the mountain camp on any weather day warning of intention the day before departure.
Hunting is carried out at an altitude of 1100-1700 m. Above sea level. The proximity of the ocean and the wind, as well as small altitudes above sea level, where snow rams live, exclude lack of oxygen and mountain sickness. As a result, hunters even "at age" feel excellent.
Upon arrival at the mountain camp, it is necessary to shoot weapons, since the flight path of a bullet in the mountains is different than at lower altitudes above sea level.
Hunters can count on a trophy from 10 years old and older with a long horns of 88 cm. - 98 cm. This is the most common result. Look in the gallery of our trophies and make sure that. There you can see trophies of 14 and 16-year-old rams.

The hunter's task is to see the snow sheep before the snow sheep notice him. Having noticed the hunter, the snow sheep are alarmed, come together and look at him for a long time. Even after running, they stop several times and look at the hunter with curiosity. This behavior of snow sheep allows you to fire a long-range aimed shot. It is necessary to approach the beast from the leeward side along the slope of the mountain. The best option is to be taller than animals. If the snow sheep noticed the hunters and the distance does not allow an accurate shot. One of the hunters distracts attention by showing himself. The second, having disappeared from the field of view of the snow sheep, continues to carefully approach the animals, moving to the distance of the aiming shot.
Such hunting requires preliminary work on the study of daily activity, the placement of resting places and pebbles of animals to arrange ambushes at the transition from resting places to pebbles and vice versa. To hunt, you need to go to the place of the most likely transition of animals in the middle of the day, comfortably settle and, waiting for the horns to approach the arrow, get the right one.
Snow sheep are caught up with a hunter left in place of the most likely passage, through which animals leave in case of danger. The driver himself does not strive to approach the shot, but from afar, from a distance of 400-500 m, he alarmes the animals, and then, slowly approaching them, not directly, but as if in passing, directs them to the side where the hunter is located.
Maintenance personnel: Each hunter is provided with a conductor to accompany. In the camp cook, translator.
Hunting with sneak, swooping, nudity. Hunting is carried out from early morning, during the day and until late evening. From the camp one-day and two-three day routes (if desired) with overnight stay in heated beams and huts.
By the beginning of the hunting season in Kamchatka, berries keep pace on the tundra, and bears graze on it during the day. This hunt is prey because the bear is so fond of eating berries that it loses caution. The main condition is to sneak into the wind. If the bear has turned and is looking in your direction it is enough to sit down and not move. Perhaps the bear will try to smell the smell. But the wind from the bear in your direction will do its job. After some time, if you did not pretend to be a movement, the bear will continue to calmly eat the berry. You can almost come close to such a bear. On the tundra berry, bears graze until snow falls and snow-free areas of berry tundra disappear.
Individual bears (almost always adult males) stay in the upper reaches of small rivers, near freezing streams until the end of December. Here, despite the frost, they feed on salmon spawning until the end of the year, stuffing trails in the snow. The hunters, making sure that salmon went into the river and there are fresh traces along the banks, sometimes ambush the bear, right on the roof of the hunting ridge located near the river.
