Booking now for 2019 Kamchatka Brown Bear Fall & Spring Hunts!

NOTE: Spring hunts are fully booked for 2019-2020. We are now booking for Spring 2021. Fall hunts are available for 2019 forward.

Kamchatka has the biggest Brown Bear population in the world. There are more than 10 000 of them just in the Southern part of the peninsula. Now it’s usual to see a Bear female with 3 and more cubs which mean there is enough food and they are not under pressure.

Spring Bear Hunt – $13,900 USD

Spring hunting season usually starts April 24th and lasts only one month till May 25th.

We traditionally hunt Bears when they start coming out of dens using snowmobiles to find tracks and cover big distance every day.

The hunting area spreads out for hundred miles and we have plenty of options to find trophy size Bears either in the mountains when they just came out of dens or down the seashore where all of them are looking for some food after long winter.


Fall Bear Hunt $11,000 USD

The hunting season starts August 20th and lasts till the end of October.

We usually hunt Bears near lakes and rivers as there is a lot of salmon coming up to spawn. Also you can find them on tundra feeding on berries at day time.

The average trophy size is 8-9 feet. But there are Bears over 9 and even 10 feet. And we have a chance to find these monsters.

We provide an accommodation in nice cabins with every convenience (heating system, electricity, rest room). Also there are kitchen, dining room, hot shower and banya (Russian sauna) in the camp.

Recommended trip duration 8-10 days

Option #2 We offer Spring and Fall hunts for eastern Siberian Brown Bear along the Okhotsk sea coast. Okhotsk is an Urban-type settlement and a seaport at the mouth of the Okhota River. Located at the eastern end of the River Routes from the Urals, Okhotsk was the first Russian settlement on the Pacific Coast 

It was established as a wintering camp in 1643 by the Cossacks under Semyon Shelkovnikov. The fort of Kosoi Ostrozhok was constructed in 1649. In 1714 Peter the Great sent a party of ship-builders to Okhotsk to allow faster access to the furs of Kamchatka. In 1718 Kozma Sokolov built the first vessel in Okhotsk and embarked upon a voyage to Kamchatka. This route became so popular with Russian navigators that by 1731 Okhotsk had been firmly established as the foremost Russian seaport on the Pacific. At various points in its history, Okhotsk was a centre for the Russian-American Fishing and Fur-Trading activities. 

It is known for being the headquarters for the explorer Vitus Bering, who sailed from here for two extraordinary expeditions, discovering the Bering Strait on one and Alaska on the other. The Portuguese Jew Anton de Vieira was the town’s governor at that time. 

The growth of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky dislodged Okhotsk from its leading commercial position in the early 19th century, although it remained important as the base of the Siberian military flotilla, a predecessor of the Russian Pacific Fleet. In 1812 the town was moved to a new site across the Okhota River. It was of some military importance during the Russian Civil War, when the White army generals Vasily Rakitin and Anatoly Pepelyayev used it as their place of arms in the Far East. Okhotsk was also a launch site of sounding rockets between 1981 and 2005. The rockets reached altitudes until 1000 km. The importance and population of the townlet sharply declined following the demise of the Soviet Union.
