    Default Big moose taken in the Yukon

    Possible world record moose taken off of the Yukon river by a Dawson city local this September. I guess the big moose dont have a preference as to whether or not they live in the U.S. or Canada.

    Cheers!

    Meat hunt with open sight 303, perfect.

    There is a reason the biggest moose are called Yukon moose. Used the perfect gun set up also but left to wonder about the tricked out camo worn.
    Now left only to be a turd in the forrest and the circle will be complete.Use me as I have used you

    Been a moose hunter since the mid 70's. Shot more moose than I can remember, and it really is my passion. However, I just don't get excited about what is a "B&C" moose. Certainly not like I would about a Sheep, or bear or Caribou for that matter. To me, a "trophy" moose has character, not size. My absolute favorite bull is a only a mid 40's moose, but it has all kinds of character and the way it happened was just as fun.

    Great big ol bull for sure and an even better story. Congrats to the hunter.

    Nice...I believe that Moose is an Alaskan Moose, you can tell by the wide palmations of the paddles , it just happened to cross the border and be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    like stated above, Congrats to the lucky hunter .
