The series bare a few similarities; MAO includes time-hopping between the present day and the Taisho era in Hokkaido. Golden Kamuy also takes place at the end of the Taisho-era in Hokkaido.

Actually, Young Jump's official site for Golden Kamuy says, '時は、激動の明治時代 [the Meiji period] 後期。'
The Comic Natalie article, too, says, '明治 [Meiji] の北海道での金塊をめぐるサバイバルを描いた「ゴールデンカムイ」[Golden Kamuy]...'

Is it known when exactly Golden Kamuy takes place? All I have to go on is that it's not long after the end of the Russo-Japanese War in 1905. This would be in the last few years of the Meiji Era.

The Russo-Japanese War ended in the autumn of 1905.
When Sugimoto visited Umeko's house after the war, Umeko had spring flowers. So it can be conjectured that the period of the scene was the spring of 1906.
When Sugimoto met Asirpa in Volume 1 of Golden Kamuy, they talked about bears' wintering. So it can be conjectured that the period of the scene was the winter of 1906-07.
In Volume 14, words by Inudō indicate that Enomoto Takeaki is still alive. The date of Enomoto's death is October 26 of 1908.
So it can be conjectured that probably Golden Kamuy's period from Sugimoto's meeting Asirpa to the spoiler[Inudō-versus-Hijikata ]fight is 1907 (Meiji 40) or so.
