Hunting Kamchatka Moose in Central Kamchatka

The December 2014 season of hunting Giant Kamchatka Moose proved to be quite fruitful for Stalker Group Company. All our clients have harvested nice trophies. For example, the span of the antlers of one of the Moose totaled 160 cm (about 63 inches). The weather was quite favorable, which allowed bagging all trophies within a couple of first days of hunt.

We organize Kamchatka Moose hunting in different region of Kamchatka peninsula, mostly in the central part of it. This region does not demand the helicopter transfer, and that fact of course affects the prices positively. The transfer is organized by car from to the airport of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy to the nearest village of Milkovo. From there the hunting team proceeds to the base camp by snowmobiles. Hunting is organized on the horseback during the first part of fall (September-October) and using the snowmobiles for transportation during late fall and beginning of winter (November-December). Hunter and his guide each day start from the same comfortable hunting camp and spend the day looking for the trophy Kamchatka Moose. The hunt is considered to be quite difficult, especially in the early fall. The region is covered with forests, and the leaves hide the animals and do not let to find them easily, and to evaluate the trophy size of the animal at a short glance. In winter, the hunting process is a little bit easier; snowmobiles are used for transportation around the area. The PH is driving the snowmobile and the hunter is sitting in the sledge behind. During the day, the hunting team goes around places usual for feeding and sleeping and look for the fresh track of the Moose. The hunter has to choose his clothes thoughtfully, because the winter temperatures in Kamchatka can be quite low. Skis are used to spot and stalk the trophy male once found. However sometimes the Moose walks out of the forest right nearby the hunting team. In that case, the hunter has to be ready for the quick shot. It will be helpful to have shooting gloves underneath the warm mittens. The winter hunt provides the highest success rate, because it is a lot easier to spot the trophy Moose, evaluate the trophy quality of the animal, and to cover great distances within one day searching for your desired Giant Moose.

As a rule, the trophy males in this region are harvested within the first couple of hunting days. However sometimes the bad weather interrupts your hunting plans. During the rainy/snowy and windy days, the animals tend to stay in one place without much movement around the area. It becomes hard to find fresh tracks. Besides, it not much pleasure to hunt in rain. That is why we advise to count for 7-9 hunting days in order to allow a gap for a couple of bad weather days. Once your trophy Kamchatka Moose is harvested, we can organize early transfer back to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy, and flight back to Moscow and back home.

The hunting camp is a comfortable lodge with wooden houses and Russian sauna.
