Moose Hunting in Kamchatka Russia

These moose are the largest antlered animal in the world originating from the Chukotka moose of north of Kamchatka Peninsula. Moose were not endemic to southern regions of Kamchatka prior to 1978 as the sever climate, deep snow and lack of vegetation on the mountain passes prevented migration to the south.

The regional hunting department relocated a group of 45 young moose from the Chukotka region to the Kamchatka River valley in central Kamchatka Peninsula. With the mild climate and abundant food source these animals soon flourished and over the next 20 years had multiplied to some 3,000 animals.

Moose Hunt - Kamchatka

The most successful time to harvest a big bull moose is in Winter. We would say 90% of the biggest trophy bulls are taken at this time, and we mean bulls up to the 70-inch class.

Hunters arrive in the capital of Kamchatka, Petropavlovsk and are then driven to the village of Esso about a 7-hour drive north. After an overnight in the local hotel, you will then be transferred to camp by helicopter for an 8 day hunt then returned to Esso by helicopter at the conclusion of the hunt. Hunting is done by tracking moose on a snowmobile and is a highly effective method of hunting at this time of year.
