Alaska-Yukon moose: “It is the best meat you can get in the world,”

Boone and Crockett measurers scoring Heinz Naef's record moose.

For Heinz Naef, the verification of his record Alaska-Yukon moose by a Boone and Crockett Club (B&C) panel was the proverbial icing on the cake. Naef’s record was all but official when the rack was scored by B&C measurer Clint Walker last month at 263-1/8. However, Naef needed to bring his moose to Reno, Nevada for review by a Special Judges Panel as a formality.

In the end, the panel decided to bump up the final score to 263-5/8. Those measurements make Naef’s moose one of only two to ever score above 260. The other was the previous world record, which was harvested by John Crouse near Alaska’s Fortymile River two decades ago. That moose scored 261-5/8.

  1. I saw a moose rack at a hunting lodge in AK back in '93 that would bring shame to that one. It was probably never scored. There was a fresh 'bou rack there too, that the owners son harvested. It had over twenty forks on each side. Amazing what a kid with a Super Cub can find.
