Q:

What was the biggest moose ever killed?

A:

The biggest moose killed as of 2014 scored a 261 5/8. Scoring a moose means combining measurements of the greatest spread of the antlers, the number of abnormal and normal points on each antler, the width and length of each palm including brow and the circumference of the beam.

John A. Crouse killed the moose in East-Central Alaska at the end of a six-day hunt in August of 1994. It took two days to pack the moose back to camp. The rack was so big that it could not fit in the first plane that came to retrieve the men.
