Tough To Pack These Antlers Out
So this is what a #1 looks like
A moose skull has never looked so small… incredible!
Wowzer!! Story on it? Camera angle is a bit deceptive, but a monster nonetheless.
Unusual color and texture consistency.....if it was real it would be impressive.
No sign of rubbing or white tips. I guess it could've been killed in velvet then stripped & stained.
No broken tips either, it’s synthetic
Might not be this moose but The Hunting Consortium reports the following: The largest moose taken ANYWHERE in recorded history (756 ?”), was taken by one of our clients during the 2017 hunting season in Russia. This is not only #1 SCI World Record Chukotka Moose but it also bests the #1 SCI Alaska-Yukon world record moose by over 30 inches and the previous world record Chukotka moose by over 100 inches!
Speaking of number ones.
Coincidentally, I stopped by my old taxidermist this week. Who now takes very little new work on. He says this is the new number one lion. Killed by a woman hunter in Zambia. She had nice leopard and 50” Buffalo killed on the same safari in Zambia.
Legit, hard bossesd 50” Buffalo from Zambia.
These animals are not finished so don’t critic the finish details. She also has a ridiculous brown bear in there
I would be inclined to believe the info in the "screen shot." The guy in the grey shirt really is Len Fabich, a trapper friend of mine from Homer, AK (who buys/sells a lot of moose antler from the Lower Yukon River.)
