Russia has the largest brown bear population in the world. With well over 100,000 brown bears, Russia has as many brown bears as the rest of the other countries combined. The Kamchatka peninsula has the highest density of brown bears. Request information.
This Kamchatka Russia Brown Bear Hunting Outfitter offers both Spring and Fall Russia Brown Bear hunts on the Kamchatka peninsula. Both hunts are equally good, with different hunting methods. These hunts are 14 days with 10 days of hunting. The Outfitter is honest, dependable and works hard. The hunting area is approx. 100×200 miles. There are LOTS of brown bears and hunters have a good opportunity for a 9 foot bear with a realistic chance for a 10 footer!
Accommodations are in a nice camp, but nothing fancy. Camp is located on the Itcha River on the West side of the Kamchatka about mid way up the Peninsula, and loaded with bears. These Russia rivers are full of salmon from break up until freeze up. Request information.
Spring Kamchatka Russia Brown Bear Hunting
On the spring Kamchatka Russia Brown Bear Hunting (around the 24th of April), the Outfitter only takes 4 hunters per season and each hunter has his own guide and snow machines (quality American made machines). Ride the snow machines until you find a big track in the snow. It is nice to know the size of the bear before you ever see him.
Fall Kamchatka Russia Brown Bear Hunting
Fishing is SUPERB this time of year, and many hunters take advantage of the capercaillie hunting this time of year as well.
*We recommend using the Outfitters guns (.338) because Russia will charge you $700 per gun at the airport
**All permits and paperwork will be handled for you by the Outfitter. CITES permit is $250 per bear
***A second bear can be taken at an additional cost

- What would be the flight route from Western US/Canada? The best way to get there will be via Lax direct to Moscow then back over to Kamchatka
- What are the Visa requirements? A 30 day Russia Visa is required
- Can I take my own rifle? We suggest that hunters leave their rifles at home as this saves hassle of transporting rifles and save at least $ 500.00 getting rifles into Russia.
