Our Kamchatka partners have the ONLY area on Kamchatka that produces top trophies. Hunting Kamchataka bighorn we have been 100% since 1990 – the ONLY company that can make this claim.
We opened sport hunting on Kamchatka in 1990.Throughout these many years, we have hunted bighorn in all regions of the Peninsula, but have centered our operation close to Petropavlovsk the last 15 years. We have huge areas that have produced rams up to 44”. The scenery is magnificent, the hunt is challenging and the Russians aim to please.
Kamchatka Bighorn look very much like North American Bighorn sheep. They are large and brownish-grey colored. The white rump patch is rather small and is divided by a dark dorsal stripe which continues down the tail. Head and neck may show a varying degree of grayish-white. The average trophy size is 34-38”, with a number of trophies taken in excess of 40”.
Kamchatka Bighorn inhabit the central ridge of the Kamchatka Peninsula south of the 60th parallel. Safari Outfitters was the first to open the hunting in this remote land in 1990. Since then, we have sent 50-60% of those who hunted sheep on the Kamchatka Peninsula.
