This video comes from a French Canadian hunter in Quebec named Real Langlois, better known as the Rackman. The video was posted on YouTube on April 5, 2011 and was titled "World Record Moose," but that claim is unconfirmed and that claim is confirmed by the Pope and Young Club. The bull scores 249 1/8 inches. You have to give credit to the Rackman for having nerves of steel on this shot.
How close would you let a huge rutting bull moose get?
We rolled out of camp as the sun was rising, just after legal shooting light. I rode shotgun in the pickup with my rifle at my side uncased, unloaded, muzzle pointed at the floor. A full magazine waited in my pocket.
Less than 400 yards down a gravel ranch road my guide, Wade Woods, spotted a pronghorn buck skylined on a ridge.
“There’s a nice buck right there,” Wade said excitedly as my hunting partner Philip Miller watched from the back seat (see the video from Philip's hunt below).
The buck was standing broadside 150 yards away and staring at us. We had been hunting for approximately four minutes.
