Yukon moose's antler rack beats current world record
Measurement now goes to Judging panel
Dawson City, Yukon, moose hunter Heinz Naef is another step closer to a world record.
This fall he shot what he says is the largest moose ever harvested in Yukon.
This week the official measurements were taken. There is a required 60-day waiting period before the antlers can be measured.
It came in with an official point score of 263 1/8. The current record is 261 5/8.
A panel of judges in the U.S. will have to review the rack before it is officially declared a world record.
Naef estimates the moose weighed more than 560 kilograms.
He says he has enough moose meat to last him until next fall.
