I have been seeing this picture floating around for some time. (Almost 5 years)

The moose was taken in "2001" by hunter Jay Link on the Kamchatka Peninsula within Russia.

The outfitter was Bob Hanson's Sable Expeditions. The cost of this particular hunt was $20,000 american.

This moose would be considered a Chukotka Moose or Far eastern Moose by classification.

The world record Chukotka Moose is held by Scott Doxey scoring 648 SCI

2-5 rspectiviely: 609, 599, 596, 592 SCI.

#10 in the SCI ranking is 573 SCI

This is obviously a wonderful animals but is not a World record moose at almost 100 inches below the WR.

He says they glassed and looked for fresh moose tracks in the snow, then stalked the animals to determine trophy quality. He reports seeing 13 moose during this hunt, while his brother, who was hunting another area, only saw t........(continued)

It is all one what a guy thinks he needs. Being in a far off land like this and hunting prestine places costs big $$$$$
