It’s official, the Boone and Crockett Club announced today that an Alaskan-Yukon moose killed by Heinz E. Naef of Dawson City, Yukon, is a new world record. The bull scored 263 5/8 inches. The previous record bull was killed in Alaska in 1994 and scored 261 5/8.
We first ran a story about the monster bull in October and many social media commenters said the rack was too small. But, it’s important to note that in the photo above, the man on the right is 6 feet 5 inches tall.
The bull had a spread of 75-5/8 inches. The left side has 17 points and a palm measuring 17-5/8 inches wide by 51 inches long. The right antler has 19 points and a palm measuring 23-6/8 inches wide by 50-7/8 inches long. The antler circumferences are 8-4/8 and 8-7/8 inches on the right and left sides, respectively, according to B&C.
“If you ask me what am I going to do with it, my house is too small,” Naef told the Whitehorse Star. “If it happens to be the world record, then I would like to have it somewhere where a lot of people could see it.”
