Information note:

Kamchatka Outfitters invites you to Kamchatka Spring Brown Bear Hunt.
The brown bear (Ursus Arctos bearingianus) is the most famous animal on Kamchatka. The average size of a mature male is about 8.5 feet (2.5 m.). The color varies from light brown to almost black. The brown bears' population is approx. 12-15 thousand. Kamchatka has one of the highest brown bear populations, with an average density of one brown bear per square mile.

"Kamchatka Outfitters" has been arranging Brown Bear Hunting over 10 years already in the northern and southern parts of the Kamchatka peninsula. Our hunting areas have snow in April and May. At this time of the year the ground is covered by 5 - 11 ft. (1-3 m.) of snow. The temperatures range from 20 F (-6 ) in the night and reach 50 F (+10 ) during the day time.

During spring hunts we use snowmobiles and sled to take the hunter to the hunting area. Spotting and stalking is generally done from the sled. Searching for tracks and glassing mountain hillsides is the way to hunt Kamchatka Brown Bears. During day time bears lie in the sun on the rocks and in snow-free areas. They are active in the morning and evening. You will have your own experienced guide who has excellent knowledge of the area and will assist you in getting your trophy.

In some of our bear camps Capercaillie bird hunting is available. It can be arranged for an additional cost and some camps after the hunt you are welcome to do fishing for Char and Rainbow trout for free.
