The Alaskan moose hunt is the largest of the deer family. An adult male can be nearly 7 foot tall at the shoulder and tip the scales at 1600 pounds or more. That’s about 600-700 pounds of meat after you’ve dressed it out.

And their antlers are the biggest in the deer family as well. A typical set of moose antlers is close to 5 feet from tip to tip, with true trophy sizes into the 6 foot range.
