Koryak Snow Sheep

Ameri-Cana Expeditions is proud to offer a customized trip for Koryak sheep in the Ledyanaya Mountain Region of North Kamchatka. (Ovis Nivicola Koriakorum

Accommodations and Hunting Methods

While in search of the Snow sheep we will be hunting primarily from camp on foot and back pack hunting. Glassing and spotting sheep in basins and valleys is the hunting method. Spending hours using optics to locate sheep as with most mountain hunting. Spike camps with light tents may be used for 1-2 day trips during the hunt to access areas and stay a couple days to hunt the area effectively. Accommodations in the base camp are tent accommodations as well. The altitude in the region will be up to 2500 M (7500ft).

Our hunt area has proved itself in the recent past. Last two groups of hunters that hunted it were 100% with rams from 9 years old to 14 years old. The remoteness of the hunting area and difficulty to access provides for an excellent sheep population which will in turn provide for an excellent hunt. Obviously Good physical condition is necessary for a successful and enjoyable hunt in the mountains. Arrival point in Kamchatka will be Petropavlovsk (PKC), Kamchatka. (pop. 200,000) Petropavlovsk is the capital of Kamchatka. After an overnight if necessary in Petropavlovsk (PKC) you will fly on scheduled flight to Tilichiki.
