Kamchatka Outfitters invites you to Kamchatka Fall 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.
In fall: we locate our hunting camps on banks of rivers abundant with spawning salmon. Access into these remote camps is by helicopter only. Our hunting area makes up a great hunting situation due to the way the landscape is set up around the rivers that are abundant with salmon. Hunters can take the position on top large rocks in and around the river to have an elevated position over bears feeding in the river and open areas.
We also make spike camps in the berry fields and in Siberian pine cones feeding places.
Motorboats and horses are used for transportation. You will have your own experienced guide who has excellent knowledge of the area and will assist you in getting your trophy.
Hunters are able to take advantage of some fantastic fishing for several species of salmon and Rainbow trout at no additional cost.
