Alaskan Big Game Trophy Moose Antlers, Elk
Taxidermy, very large moose antlers, palmate antlers. An exceptional pair of 30 point Alaska - Yukon Moose antlers. The antlers are with small amount of skull, just above the eye socket and comes with a copy of an award from the 'Boone & Crockett Club Records of North American Big Game' with a score of 240 - 4/8. The Moose was shot at a distance of 75yds on the 30th October, at 3.30pm, 1991, at Meadow Creek, Yukon, by Alistair Campbell. The moose was hunted on foot on a clear sunny day with 18' snow on the ground. Moose are part of the deer family and are the largest member and fittingly have the largest set of antlers too. Moose antlers are paired and shaped like a hand with the fingers out stretched, also known as palmate antlers. The antlers grow in the spring from the males skull and are covered in a protective 'velvet', they are full formed by around September with the velvet having been shed. During mid-November and March the moose will typically lose their antlers. Currently most moose are found in Alaska, Canada, New England, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Latvia, Estonia and Russia. The Boone and Crockett Club is an American non-profit organization that advocates fair chase hunting in support of habitat conservation. The club is North America's oldest wildlife and habitat conservation organization, founded in the United States in 1887 by Theodore Roosevelt. The first formal recognition of outstanding North American big game trophies by the Boone and Crockett Club was in the 1932 records book. It involved relatively few specimens that were listed by simple criteria of length and spread of horns, antlers or skulls. The 1932 book was followed by the 1939 records book that included informative chapters on a variety of subjects related to big game and hunting. In 1947, the Club held its first competition for outstanding trophies, ranking them by a series of measurements that were refined in 1950 into the current trophy scoring system. Trophy entry now occurs during a three-year period, followed by the public display of the finest trophies entered in each category and an awards banquet. Presentation of Boone and Crockett Club big game medals and/or certificates recognizes trophy excellence. Only the top trophies in each category are invited to Final Awards Judging and only invited trophies remeasured by the Judges Panel are eligible to receive awards.
