The largest moose ever recorded was a bull which stood at 6 feet 8 inches tall and weighed 1,800 pounds. Although the species is typically characterized by their hulking size and impressive antlers, this particular moose was especially massive. The moose in question was shot by hunter Mark Uptain near the town of Jackson, Wyoming in 2018.
This specimen was so large that it broke the state record for the largest moose ever killed in Wyoming. It was also the first moose in the state to break the 1,800-pound mark. The moose was estimated to be at least 10 years old. It had a skull measuring 63.5 inches and a shoulder height of 6 feet 8 inches.
The moose was so large that it had to be brought in on a flatbed truck. It was transported to a local taxidermist, where it was processed and mounted for display. After the moose was processed and mounted, it was presented to the Boone and Crockett Club, a conservation group that keeps records of big game animals. After measuring and examining the moose, the club declared it the largest moose ever recorded.
Due to its impressive size, the moose was awarded the title of “Papa Moose” and was featured in a number of news stories, including one from the Associated Press. Its antlers were measured at more than 200 inches and its massive size made it a unique trophy.
The moose was a true force of nature and its size was truly one of a kind. Although the moose was not the biggest ever recorded, it was certainly one of the most impressive ever seen. Its size and beauty will be remembered for years to come by hunters and conservationists alike.
