New World Record Bull Moose Announced by Boone & Crockett Club

World Record Moose

A new world record bull moose was announced by the Boone and Crockett Club

The Alaskan-Yukon Moose killed in October by Heinz Naef of Dawson City, Yukon is the newest world record bull moose. With a score of 263 5/8 inches, the huge rack surpassed the previous world record bull that was killed in 1994 in Alaska and had a score of 261 5/8 inches. The Boone and Crockett Club scored and certified this Moose before announcing the new record.

An enormous spread of 75 5/8 inches set this bull apart from others and there were 17 points on the left side of the rack with a palm that measured 17 5/8 inches wide by 51 inches long. The right antler has a total of 19 points and that palm measures 23 6/8 inches wide by 50 7/8 inches long. The bases’ circumference was 8 4/8 inches and 8 7/8 inches on the right and left sides according to the B&C.

While some originally thought the bull was too small to be a world record, it is important to keep in mind that the man on the right in the photo is 6 feet 5 inches tall. Naef was very excited about the bull being the next world record.

“If you ask me what am I going to do with it, my house is too small,” Naef said. “If it happens to be the world record, then I would like to have it somewhere where a lot of people could see it.” The Whitehorse Star interviewed Naef for those quotes.

Hunting a huge bull moose is probably the greatest hunt out there in my opinion and it’s awesome to see these massive animals in person. Congratulations Heinz!
